I liked the buggy but the rear of the car was loose on power. i am running the stock springs, pistons and camber locations. was wondering how to fix this?
Are you running any weight in the rear? That's almost a must, I run the 30g brass skid plate.

i strongly suggest that you goggle the hudy set up manual and print it. its for a 1/8 buggy but it has all the theory on everything. its very easy to use track side. it eliminates all the guess work when trying to set your car up. imo its a must for every pit bag, especially if you run a car that doesnt have 10 pro setups posted that have been worked on and refined for years.

I have the racers edge lipo...

I have the 3 hole pistons in the rear shocks with 30w oil. In the front i have the 2 hole pistons drilled 1.34mm, with 35w oil. I bought the wrong springs. I have the dark green for the rear and the light green for the front...

I also have 5000 oil in the front diff and 2000 oil in the rear...

What kind of surface are you running on? I too recommending starting with the 30g weight if it's tail happy. From what I've seen and experienced, it's almost a requirement when running mod motors.

Don`t waste $40 on the brass weights . You can achieve the same thing for $5 using lead weights under the diff housing and chassis brace .

Anyone have a pic of where they're placing the weight? I get the feeling it's gonna be tail happy at PRCR.

Dlewis4 - I just grabbed a 10.5 Murfdogg and an RS Pro. How you likin those cans? Best gearing for a small track?

These motors are balls to the wall. Yes, I am sponsored by Murfdogg, but take this as it came from a racer. These motors are truly faster than the rest-I get asked on a weekly basis what I am running, and if it's legal lol

I am running 24/87 for my 13.5 and it's ballistic. So I would say 21/87.

If you need a speedo setup, or any other help with the motor, give myself or rangerjkb a PM. We both run the Rango and the motors
