If I remember right, the XX used shorter arms than the CR did, and the hubs were offset, made it better for low traction tracks. I actually switched my XXX to that rear end when I was on a loose or bumpy track.

the XX has much longer arm when comparing to RC10. so it is already very good in term of stability especially our track condition in hongkong was kind of "loose pack". I havent studied much about buddy right after the double X since we have not had any permanent buggy track since that time.

1/10 and 1/8 buggy racing is fun !!

I quit offroad myself right after the XXX was released, on-road is much cleaner and much faster paced racing.

how about this! give me some "non-special" item from your inventory for free?
The only "non-special" item are debts (negative asset). That's very common in Hong Kong. You want it?

miniT is still too big and too fast to play at home. we use a big cardbroad to set up a mini jump to play the miniz monster at home and it is fun !

Randy,

We'll join you to change to CGM very soon. However, the one in the market are "direct imported" from Japan. We are waiting for one coming through distributor. But only available in Feb.

Will you run your CGM on carpet or asphalt ?

Anthony
