Very nice. I d/l the instructions off their site as apparantly there are a few hicups with the reg manual.

If your gonna run RM. Def pick up softer front springs and stiffer rears. I like black/front and drk blue/rear right now on my RM3. Kit springs are more for MM.

I practiced with the car the other day. I had some binding with one axle. I found it was a combination of the axle and too much pressure on the bearing from tightening the hex. The buggy felt undergeared and as a result i took some hard hits and a couple of tumbles not being able to clear the triple. I fixed the axle, but the moral of the story is I did not pop off one ball cup. They seemed soft, but stayed on the car. The Buggy held together fantasticaly.

Fyi the Tresrey hexes come with two shims for each side. I only used one per side. Took the pressure off the bearings.

Default Ball studs

Hey guys,

Quick ball stud question:

A few pages back hpi 15mm ball studs and kyosho ends were sugested. I noticed that the TD ball studs are 10 mm. If you use that combo do you still need the gold spacers?
Thanks

The 10mm and 15mm are in reference to how long the threaded end is, not the height of the ballstud

Has anyone had problems achieving the correct camber? With these installed my camber is +5 with no room to adjust and their bottomed out in the ballend. Do I need different turnbuckles? I thought th TD turnbuckles we're fine?
Thanks

I missed what cups and turnbuckles you are running, are they the stock ones?

The rear end of the car is a maintenance dark cloud, but fortunately the diff when built correctly will outlast any other I have come across...

I run Kyo cups, ballstuds and turnbuckles, **Kyosho has three different length ball cups designed for the turnbuckles ** I have plenty of room for camber running the med length ball cups, which end of the car are you having an issue?

The issues is with the front. I'm using the med cups. Should I be using different turnbuckles because mine are still stock?
