The binding wasnt caused by dirt or dust or anything. I always keep my cars spotless and am fairly OCD about it, but this happened from new. Others have reported similar issues, but it doesn't seem to effect everyone. Tried all manner of things, but no joy. Others seem to like them and thats cool. I just don't care for them.
maybe it is tolerances relative to RPMs ball cups. . Not sure if the color matters either. But yeah, we still trimmed them. adjustments were easier that way.

That's very possible about the tolerances. I considered the whole color thing as a variable as well. I didn't recall the old blue ones I had being as stiff as the purples. Seems odd that a color would effect things, but I've heard crazier things.

I should take a look through one of my parts bags here as I have a lot of old items older cars here and see if any of them fit better. I mainly didn't think of it to really try since they didn't have pass thrus so I figured might as well just get the rpms.

I put mine up for grabs on eBay.

In case anyone is interested here's the link:

This thread highlights most of the upgrades I've put into it, just gotta go back far enough or look at my posts.

The kit itself went togeher beautifully. Not one single issue aside from a sticky rear shock on one side. Not sure whatís causing that. It only binds up when I install the bottom cap. I really wish they included more C clips for the shocks in be spares. For me, that was the one part I almost botched.

Maybe its just becaise I donít have my motor installed but the whole drive line feels much smoother to me than my truggy. And the truggy is smooth already.

Now to work on some paint and get the thjng completey finished.
itís s nice looking buggy, but Iím really surprised that LC hasnít made longer arms like the Losis. I took out my truggy the other day and the gears in the servo broke through the case lol.... anyone use a savox sh1250 in these?

100% agree. I even purchased some losi parts to see about converting to a wide-track but ultimately decided against it. It would just be so much better for scrub angles and wheel options.

Personal preference I suppose. I actually have zero issues with the buggy length arms and find the proportions fine. I'm done running as a truggy with the 2.2 wheels, so this works pretty damn well for mini buggy wheels and touring car wheels. There's no reason why you cant run the same offset truggy wheels on the new car though. You could also 3D print something I'm sure if you were really set on the idea. I cut LC a little slack just because they're such a tiny little company in relation to giants like Losi. Totally different leagues they play in, even though LC makes such a better car in virtually every respect compared to what Losi offers(and offered) in the 1/14 class.

There is one nit I do have to pick, and thats the diff cases. If you look at the position of the motor you'll probably figure it out. To use a sensored motor you need an ESC capable of reverse rotation, or you need to notch the cases with a Dremel to flip the diffs. Not a huge deal, as it seems HW is virtually one of the only ESC manufacturers that doesn't allow reverse motor rotation on the majority of the ESC's.

I was actually shocked at how much just the change in motor position made the car handle better. The old LWB car feels almost like a rear motor 2wd drive now. I cant go back.

BTW, you can use the Savox or any other 35mm wide servo(if the depth is under 30mm), you just have to drill a new hole for the left mount or just use the right side and servo tape underneath. For that mater you can even use a 1/10 low profile servo too. If you're gonna go the drill a new hole route, that'd be what I would do.

is it rare to hear of the Batan servo blowing out of the case? I recall hearing nothing but good things about it at first and am not sure if mine was a fluke. I use an Airtronics m12 so itís not like I donít have the end points adjusted etc.

Is the truggy updated or is it the same one that's been around?

Iíve never heard of that happening but they are essentially 12 dollar plastic gear servo. Issues with the 115 are common, but Iíve not had one fail on me, though I did replace the one in my truggy pretty shortly after I got it with the KO Propo mini servo.

I think theyíre actually very good for what they are, especially in the buggies, but the truggy is a lot more taxing on a servo. Been solid in the new car so far though!

It's probably set up the same as the other Tacon stuff, PVC body, 2 gear diffs ect.

It would be really odd if it had 2 gear diffs, but I had the same concern. I have a feeling it's just like the LC truggy that you get through most of the overseas sleeps with the painted bodies, but it would be nice to know for sure. Maybe someone will email NitroRCX(or buy one) and let us know for sure.
