If not, what other bodies will fit (other than the JC eBug)?

Thx!
I have the Silencer on my 3.0.

Nitro Silencer, correct?

If so, do you have a gap between the body and the edge of the chassis/guard?

Could you post a couple pics (top/bottom)?

Thx!

I'm pretty sure you will have a space between the lid and the chassis/guard due to the fact that the nitro chassis is wider than the electric chassis.

Anyone else thinking that the linkage/steering balls wears out very quickly?

I only run on dusty, blown out tracks, and get a lot of dirt in/on the car.

The linkage/steering balls are wearing to a small size extremely fast, feels like I'm changing the often on my two buggies.

Are there any other balls available made in a different material that will last longer?

Mine don't seem to. How are yours positioned, up or down? Just curious because I've never ran mine up.

Maybe it's because we race in very dusty conditions.

One of our best national drivers are racing both the nitro and E 3.0, and he have the same "problem", that the balls wears real quick.

I guess they are aluminium, and as soon as the darker coating wear off, the "bare" aluminium wears down quickly.

I run them all according to the assembly manual.

I race in all kinds of track conditions, I do however put some Teflon spray on all my pivot balls.

Has anyone figured out how to install other manufacturer springs on this car?
Due to the taper spring/15mm spring cup, sounds like we are limited to only TLR springs?
Has anyone tried to install a AE/KYO or other 16mm shock end/cup?

Its always nice to have options...

I think it's tapered for clearance purposes and to reduce the risk of the spring cup ejecting during a crash.

Some at our track are using the 15mm springs from their previous 2.0's, they just use the cups from a 2.0 and they fit nicely.

The 15mm springs fit over the shock bodies? Interesting.


I was hoping to use the more standard 16mm springs.
