Has anyone heard back about the Tamiya 2wd sponsorship call? I hope someone will get back to us regardless if it's good or bad.

So- never realized how amazing these shocks are... Buttery smooth

Question- gearing for an 8.5 on a small 80x40 with no real straight?

The only thing I am not liking is that the ball diff is a pain to adjust It doesnt seem to like to adjust like AE and Losi do without having to tAke the rear apart...

Am I wrong here?

I finally got the shots I took of my 201 before the maiden run off my camera. I figured I would post them up.

What is everyones opinion on the aluminum arm mounts for the rear of the car? Are they a worthy performance addition, or just a couple of nice bling pieces?

first off, good looking car! man i havnt seen blades on a buggy for a long time!

as for the aluminum pin braces i dont thing there is a performance gain from them but you wont break 'em. i plan on getting them along with the aluminum 0* hubs.

I ran on one small track with a CheckPoint 8.5, stock spur with a 22 pinion.

I have been running them for 3 reasons. First, it just makes the rear end of the car that much stronger. Second, it's less lead that I have to run on the rear of the car. Third, BLING!

Thanks. I looked for different tires for the front and those were the only thing I could find in my area. We decided to run buggies at our last race at the last minute so the shop didn't have anything available. I figured they wouldn't be a bad thing to have available for a tuning aid in the future.
