Think that all the boots are optional and not a must
Diff house I have never seen a broken one
Get the alu diff house holders F+R if you can those plastic ones are pretty weak
Servo saver is a must
There are alu caster blocks that you could get with a 2nd hand cheapy from fleabay or here.

I have read about the rear diff hoop breaking, but is this also a concern with the front end?

I know people who have been running the desc410 forever with out replacing those diff hoops.. I think if you are careful when you pull the diff in/out to not wear or damage them they will hold up just fine. If you find you are breaking them, then replace um.

I would recommend http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Rear-Hub-Set-2 rather than the caster block set, the v3 has those in aluminium.

Just finished my bugleboy body and undertray.

Gotta say it keeps it real clean and quiet. Well put together tray and body.


I have a handling question..

I am running on a tight indoor hard clay track with alot of turns.. An issue I am trying to figuyre out is that my onpower steering seems too little, and I have to cut way back on the throttle (almost all the way) to make tighter turns.. when I accelerate out of them ,I sometimes fishtail.. I am sure some of this is my trigger finger not being as sensitve as it should be, but any advice on how to balance this out?

I am running 10K front, 5K rear, BK bars, and 1' camber both front and back... This a suspension issue or a gear oil issue (or both?)

The car runs great, very pleased.. but I am just trying to fine tune it, etc..

(I am guessing I will probably need to drop down the oil to 7K front, 3K rear?)

Get rid of the plastic caster block set as the kit comes with alum.

Does anyone here know of a good hard plastic wing that I can run? I have a kyosho dbx wing, but I dont like the way it looks one bit.

I found a wing on ebay for a red cat that looks like it might work. It's 6.1" wide

06021 wing from redcat



any thoughts?

3Racing have a hard wing that fits, but instead of the wing giving in when you roll/crash you are going to bust your wing mount when using a hard wing

I run losi 10k front and rear, and I have the panther bobcats on the front.. TOO much on power steering I've dialed back my radio and tweaked a few other items from my base to get it in a good place. but mine has been the opp. I'm 1.5 camber f/r and about 1' toe out on the front.

I still get some of that fish tail, but I added about 1mm to the rear ride hight (~19.5mm) and it seemed to settle a touch.. I'm running the rear chassis weight but not the side weights.. considering the side weights as well in the future.
