Does anyone know what chassis would be compatible with the ve? Preferably something lighter or is that even a possibility. I've been searching for months and can't find a definitive answer.

I've been looking for a chassis that would fit the ve too, but can't seem to find one. I don't really mind the chassis on the Inferno, its heavy which means the buggy is more planted in the ground and that usually equals to more control and traction. That's the way i like it and I don't have to worry about the buggy floating in the air.

Default shock oil

What shock oil weight is recommended for this buggy? I just ordered one and will be playing around with it, but would like to understand the shock characteristics. Plan to drive this on an 1/8 scale outdoor course with plenty of jumping.

Any suggestions would be great as I am looking for a good baseline.

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies. Do you guys know what it comes with in the shocks out of the box? I plan on digging into more later but wondered if you knew.

Since the inferno has two spider gears, anyone know if it"ll be beneficial if I add two more spider gears?

One thing I have learned by working on my rc is to not really upgrade unless you know it's an issue or it breaks. I have swapped the shocks to big bore because my stockers just weren't cuttin it and I bent one. I replaced tires because they wore out. Other than that just keep it clean after races and lubed up and your fluids in check and you will always have a good solid machine.

What chassis was it? The stock one?


Anyone know if the Mp9e side guards fit the Inferno VE? If it could possible fit, you could probably fit an MP9e Body in there.
