yes i will agree but i have a track in my basement that is fast and has HUGE jumps. As you know that equals very bad crashes the car holds up great and breaks due to the fact of all the power that lipos give.long run times heat the car to extrem temps.

Smile wing

hi again i was wondering if there is a wing mount for the 18t the one i use is for the 18b and it limits me from using the inner shock position on the a-arm and on the shock tower.

there is not a wingmount for the 18t
if you use the shocktower from a 18b you will have access to the inner shock position

On a note completely unrelated to yet another RC Tech squabble, putting a one-way spool on my 18R made a huge difference. It carries an incredible amount of speed through the infield and I have my servo endpoints at around 55%. I had the field by 4 laps in the first heat, and usually we are all within a lap or 2 of each other. I highly recommend it

then wouldn't you have to use the buggy body.

From what I can tell it lets the front tires free-spin off-throttle but when you get on the throttle the front "locks" and both front tires will have power. Gives it a ton of turn in and lotsa pull coming out of the turn. Like I said it allowed it to carry a ton of speed through the infield (smaller and sharper turns).

From MIP there is a spool and a one-way spool. I have the one-way spool, so I'm not sure what a "traditional" spool would do.

If you are just bashing I would not reccomend lundsford turn buckles. For that much money you could do a lot more. Even if you were racing, one set would be sufficient, but still a bit spendy. Just my 2 cents!
