Default Medium or hard arms

One thing I don't see on set ups is choice of arms, med or hard. What has been working best?

Quick question, first off i was running really fast, our track usually has an average 17-18 lap pace, i was running a 21 lap pace with my kf, buggy was still alittle tail happy but i managed some how, but 2 laps into the main while leading it chewed up a spur gear, i noticed that the shaft that the spur sits on has some side to side play, so i put another spur on and set the gear mesh (never ever had a problem with gear mesh before in any of my vehicles) and it chewed up another spur in less time!!! I was running \he 83 tooth spur with a 25 pinion, tekin 17.5 rpm motor, thanks for the help guys

A few things to check:

make sure all your screws are tight

make sure the slipper isnt so loose its melting the spurs

check your pinion for a damaged tooth

Im still on my stock spur, few months running super high bite with a 7.5

Well i broke down the buggy and found that the lay shaft is bent, ive literally only ran this buggy twicw with no major collisions, the bent shaft is causing the spur to wobble and the side gears bind, this is basically a brand new kit should i contact schumacher about this?

Yes he did. The track was verry slippery. Most of the drivers drove rearmotor.. I drove sv2 and had problems with rear side grip and understeer. Tried KF but it did not work. Hope it works at the euors. More drivers so hopefuly the grip will be better.

Default KF vs. 1/8 scale nitro buggy

I think I've finally got my KF where I want it for medium grip. The 1 degree rear hubs with the low grip chassis seem to be doing the trick. Just keep the momentum up and it rocks.

Unfortunately I was not able to give it a fair shake after getting crushed by a 1/8 scale buggy during practice this weekend at a charity race. It felt really good in practice up until this point

I've gotta give credit to Rob Oompa for catching the assault by 1/8 buggy. The man has skills with a camera.

I found that I had a bent lay shaft during assembly. Schumacher sent a new one without issue.

Hopefully I'm not being repetitive. Has anyone worked with the rc shox bypass pistons? How did they do?
