I posted this in the nitro thread and the response was we know about it and are looking for a solution. It was suggested to disconnect the front shocks while its being stored. I think whats happening is the droop screw is creating a pressure point, the shocks pushing down on that soft arm over time are allowing it to bend.

Most important thing is to make sure your droop is less than the free length of the shocks. For instance, if your front shock are length is 108mm then your droop needs to be less than 108mm. I think the DNC sheet calls for 104. This keeps the arm from over extending and pulling the ends out.

I also think that due to the soft arms in a crash they can be overextended past where the droop is set and that will still pull them out.

Finally built my new V2 diffs with updated shims. I must say they feel very good.

that sounds a whole lot like what we went through with the sc10 4x4 a-arms .

The manual i was looking at online shows blue front and rear springs and green 2.4 / yellow 2.7 sway bars. Can anyone confirm this is what is actually in the kit?

Does the Bitty Design Force body for nitro fit this eBuggy too?

Got a question about anti roll bars...

I was looking back at my manual after the build and noticed that the manual calls for black/2.4mm in the front and the gray/2.7mm in the rear. I looked at my car and it came with two blue/2.8mm bars for the front and rear.

Secondly, I am looking for some clarification. I notice when I look at the manual for both the b3e and the 44.3, that both vehicles call for a lighter bar in the front and a heavier bar in the rear. However, I am getting some advice from local racer telling me to put a heavier bar in the front and lighter in the rear. Does that sound right? Is there a situation that would call for this approach as opposed to the strategy that the manufacturer has taken with their box stock setup?

Lastly, what is the advantage of the V2 diff and does the new B3e and T3e kits come with the V2 diff or is that purely an upgrade?

Side pods are too low. Won't fit over the battery worth a darn.

Thank you. Too bad though. I really like the way that Bitty body looks!

Raising or lowering the upper control arm on this buggy has the same effect as raising or lowering a camber link on a different buggy that used camber links. Raise the upper control arm or camber link and you get more roll.

The B3E's upper control arm and pillow ball front end allows for active caster too.

What bodies fit this car? I am looking to replace both my Nitro and Electric B3 bodies. Bittydesigns and Jconcepts only have nitro covered. What about the eBuggy?
