Currently I am in 3rd place at my club after 3 races and I am racing against a 2.0 and a bunch of ae b4.1 team buggies. Any help would be great
If you have the spindles and caster blocks then x-rings and machined guides are what you are looking for. I did that to my 1.0 and it's much better to drive. I recommend a shorty battery also.

I get it now. For RM we use the blank upper part that the screws go into. For MM we use the matching upper part as the transmission mounts ontop of it.

What would be a good starting gear ratio for a 6.5 on a larger flowing outdoor track?

Just got one of these buggies, and coming from an old B4 this buggy has way more tuning options lol I am running on a mid size indoor track, with medium to low red clay track, which is best way to run this car, mid motor, or rear? I was pretty fast with my B4 but was not even close to catching the guy with the B5 rear motor. I have the equipment, but my car would step out if I pushed harder.

We have a guy at our track with 22 2.0 in mid motor form, but he is not very good and I drove his car and seemed all over the place but was first time I drove it and did not like his radio soooo Any help I would appriciate.. thanks

You can, but it doesn't have a MM cut line like the stock body or the punisher, but it's not too hard to get it trimmed correctly. I laid an old Punisher body over the top of the new Finnisher and traced the edge of the old one onto the masking film of the new to get an idea of where to cut. Took a little extra trimming to get just right but it fits great when you get done.

I have a pair of grey slipperpads on my car. I tried them a few years ago and they have been there since then. Has anyone else tried them and compared to the new yellow ones?

Default Old xx4 pad

From what I remember that pad is from one side of the xx4 slipper used to give front wheels more bight than the rear.

That's right! lol... good 'ol LOSA3324 slipper pads! Pretty dialed OG part, actually.







And guys, don't even bother with trying to find these... There are VERY few left out there. The brand new HDS pads are fantastic, compared to the previous ones... Far more consistent, last longer, and easier to maintain.

Could someone tell me the difference in the 22 and 22 2.0 chassis. I bought a used 2.0 but the chassis was modded to be mid motor only, the rear mounting holes for rear bulkhead were cut off to do the flip arm thing for mm. I am wanting to know if I can use a 22 chassis with the rest being 2.0 parts

Arrow It's the same except for a few changes

If your going to buy one just get the 2.0.
The change is a hole to secure the anti squat block and where the servo mounts.
They took away more material to allow more room for servo placement.
In all its the same shape and thickness with those small changes

Would there be a huge benefit running a smaller spur mid motor to push the motor closer to the rear of the car? Would this give a little more rear traction? A friend of mine has done the opposite on his rear motor configuration to take away some of the pendulum effect in turns and seems to be working well with that setup. Was curious if there would be some benefit in the mid motor config as well.
