I'm going to try everything before adding the front bulkhead.

I just got my buggy so I'm fine tuning.

box stock the buggy had plenty of rear traction, what you'll notice is that it pushes.

I'm confident once I get the on power steering sorted out, I'll be able to run with the faster guys.

Looking at maybe going to srx2 mm and was curious of some needed parts or hop ups I may need to get going right?

Personally I don't think you need anything except maybe some shock springs. My car is very very close to right out the box. That is the beauty of this car. It already comes with all different shock pistons, all the inserts to make toe and anti squat adjustments, and Ackerman changes. We can't say this about many other cars

I went with X-rings and B-fast diff kit because those were the things I heard people having trouble with out of the box.

Almost everyone

Id say the only changes you might need to make is plastic or alu front bulk head and alu or brass rear pivot for the amount of steering or rear grip you need, battery middle or back, maybe different front oil

Thumbs up My SRX-2

I am using Billy's Spektrum set up in the UK. The only changes i have made are Springs and softer front oil. Havent got the Alu front block but trying to add the weight first through lead.

Great car out of box.

Same oils as Billy Easton and pistons. Just Purple/Blue front and Astro Orange/Blue rear.

No other changes needed. Well that is what I am using in the UK on our medium to high bite tracks.

37.5 front and 27.5 rear AE oil

big variance.

I did the setup, minus the extra .5 limiters,
still need the do to the shock oils and need the front black springs and alum bulkhead.
looking fwd to seeing how it handles now, have major push.
