Also, the person i bought the buggyfrom, didn't build the diffs right and forgot/lossed 1 shim in both the front and centre diffs. It's the shim that goes behind the the main gear (not spiders) under the pin. Will anything happen if its not there?

I noticed the S2 Pro was more than the newer S3 and was wondering if their are plans on a S3 Pro coming out soon?

the dirt-yes this will make a differance. i noticed i did the same on my buggy, and the outdrives in the front and rear diffs have slop in them. if you get the chance to, re-shim them.

scooby-up here in Ontario there is a pro version of local TTR Pro Dave Henrey that comes with all the hops ups. but unfortunatly only 50 were made, and are all sold now.

Default Summer NitroFest...

My LHS just had a trophy race this past w/end...Normal club events see 15-20 buggys. This trophy event had probably 35. I had a few problems, most of which were my own fault. But all in all...I won the B main, bumped up into the A. Then, I landed bad off a 6 ft tabletop and broke the stock steering bellcrank. I am still very happy with this buggy and look forward to running it some more.
My basic set up info, though Im still looking for suggestions....
Front:
35 shock oil with one ball in the piston-Stock red spring
-2 D Camber
1 D toe out
6D AntiSquat
Caster: 2mm in front of the arm, 3mm in back of the arm.
Shock mounts: on KHZ Tower - Upper middle, Arm outside
Full Droop
Softest, silver sway

5/7/3 Diffs

Rear:
45 oil/2 balls-Stock red spring
-2 D camber
3D toe in
Antisquat- RF2 mount
Shock location on KHZ Tower- Upper, 2nd from outside hole. Arm-Outside
Camber link, shortest possible- upper inside on carrier. Outside, 2nd from top
on tower
Full Droop
Stock black sway...
Panther Komodo Dragon IIs for tires.

Im on a very hard, bumpy track with lots of big air jumps.I plan to keep set up like this for now, to learn how to drive first. But all in all I can actually get around the track well now. Better than with the buggy I ran last summer. I am feeling a bit of on power push, but I dunno yet if it is my driving that can change or the set up, hence why I will leave the set up for now.

Wow, what a buggy. Past weekend i took it out to our local race and it was put to the test. I had engine problems which were worked out by the end of the day. I ran R. Saxtons set-up for the the dirt and silver state. Exactly the type of setup i like. Also has to have one of the strongest windstays, i over shot a jump and flipped tail end upside down first so how and didn't break.
