Im not sure what you are asking here... Are you saying the rear is too stiff? bouncy? Too planted?

Hope I'm not setting a bad example for the kids. But it was a rough day. Working on my toys with a cold one was nice!

You got it. The ride height is way to low in the rear.

This happened to myself and another guy at our track. If we hit a pipe or landed a little crooked they would pop off. Mine was the left steering turnbuckle. I bought new ballstuds and ballcups and the problem seems to have disappeared.

I was told last night that some guys are running AE vented slipper hubs. Just wondering if any buggy guy's on here have done this?

The only reason I'm using the AE slipper assembly is the JC spurs won't work with the Losi ones. With the AE hubs you can use their HD slipper pads which dont require as much spring pressure.

Any way to get more toe out!?! To the Horizon guys on here we need like a 2 degree and a 1 degree block! All of us on carpet don't need all this traction!

Default 22 Tranny shims

I just saw in the For Sale section that someone has designed a nice shim set for the tranny that is shaped to fit in rather nicely. I don't know if it's in bad taste to post a link to for sale items, but it's definitely worth a look...just a little pricey...but it's not like we do this because it's economically sound.
