Did you call straightaway? Exact reason why I don't practice when SCT's are on track.
it was rookies, they got on the track, when I saw them I told myself last lap!
It was then when I got nailed!

are you using tapered or flat pistons? I'm assuming they are the tapered pistons

Anyone know if I can buy a plastic insert for the aluminium shockcaps?

Hit a wooden jump side on our carpet track and the force dislodged the cap and broke the tower holder. Tried to ghetto rig the cap but it's too flimsy now.

What is the effect of raising the front hubs up, as Ty has done in the latest Reedy setup?

Not practicing when SCT's are on the track is dumb. My buddies drive Tekno SCT410's and I will put this car right in the mix during practice with them. I haven't had a single problem, besides if you just try to race the SCT's you're probably going to pull away, just don't hog the middle on the straight away.

yes picking off sct's is a breeze, BUT uncontrollable when a newb is pinned on every section of the track with ZERO control! This buggy is an amazing machine!

I would not hold my breath. The D413 is called D4 '13 although it did not hit the shelves before 2014. There are many nice cars out there to act as a gap filler.

eh, not chomping at the bit.But I'm sure when the 215 debuts I will order it because that's how I am. I really wish HB would do a SCT.

I've been into this hobby for nearly 25 years, I don't do dumb things. If you have some friends that race SCT and know how to drive then that is great. That is usually not the case with guys that race SCT. Their durability and closed wheel design fosters a drive through everyone style. A little bit of bumping is fine, but guys that started out with SCT take it too far. They try to race with you in practice when you're clearly faster and drive through you when you get near them. I practice with purpose, so I don't want people that don't know how to control their 6lb over powered missiles to screw that up.

I hear what you're saying..Most of the time I don't have an issue with SCT. When i do have an issue though and they drive though me.. I give it a touch of time to see if they say "sorry" etc..is it a group of drivers just banging bars and running over people in the process...if so i try to time my batteries so the track time is different.

I will say though...there has been a few times where i was getting ran though all the time and couldn't stay away from it..No matter what i did...so i said to myself...you want to bang bars...alright...hung up the 10th scale buggies and ran my 1/8 scale the rest of the day. And it was just beautiful.

I had more punts that day then the Texas Tech game in 1939.
