Never really have raced before just bashed.

NO. in my opinion none of the cheaper options for 2wd buggy are good forst race cars. i do like this car but i've been tuning race cars for decades. there's alot of trial and error with these "off brand" cars. it will frustrate a new racer to deal with the little issues these cars have.

i'd go for an associated b4 or b5 as a first racer. right out of the box they are stable, reliable cars.

If anyone needs any V2MR parts, check out ebay. Just type "huge V2MR lot".

I've listed a bunch of new and used parts in one big lot for cheap. I'm cleaning house and would like them to go to someone who appreciates this buggy only the way RCtech members can.

for those who would like a base line for a mid motor set up here is what i have done with mine and it is pretty close. I can run with b5's, rb6's,cento's and schumacher KR's with this set up.

Rickie, on your inside camber links (front & rear), are you running any spacers at all? I didnt see it on the set up sheet.

Also, your using Schuey BB springs?

No spacers on any of the camber links. Yes the Schumacher BB springs. They fit on perfectly and are slightly longer than the stock and the tapper on the bottom allows for use of the stock spring cups.

The car is a solid platform with some items that need addressed out of the box. The servo horn is very brittle and breaks easily, use a Kyosho hard servo horn for the RB6 it has the correct offset and height.

So what needed to make the front like the b4.

You can switch to the b4.2 to run the 12mm hexes. I would say that if u do go to hexes I would use the atomik gambler steering knuckles and axles. That way you keep the same steering geometry.

Be aware, the Gambler uses different size hinge pins, the V2MR pins WILL NOT work...without finesse
