Forgot to mention that on the second run I nailed an 10th scale e-truggy full speed on the straight, only bent right front shock shaft. Took 30min to straighten out. I don't see the need at our track for the carbon inserts. But I will be making at least one harder front bar if not a couple.

Just finished the build. 1 question... The hex pins keep falling out and I didn't even put the wheels on yet! Anyone know how I can keep them in place better?

put a thin coat of black grease on the pins. that'll give it enough sticktion to keep from falling out.

2nd batch is about 4-5 weeks after the 1st. that's when it ships from our factory. additional time added from processing by the distributors and dealers I don't know. 2nd batch should be somewhere over the Pacific now.

Thanks for getting back to me. One more question. Will this shipment contain significantly more kits than the first? The number that I heard for the first shipment was shockingly small.

Or use a drop of thread lock. Praise to Torrance! ! ! This is the best 4wd buggy I've reed had. For my third run I change from 1.5mm to 1mm on inside front camber link. The car was absolutely hooked up, and was so easy to drive fast. The crash I had on the second run that bent the shock shaft would have broken at least one front arm if not both had I still been running my 410v3. Torrance, man you designed one awesome ride. You deserve a raise!
