Agreed. Those prices are a deal killer. Warren RC is in Michigan, I think. Are they still too expensive to get to Canada?

An EMB-1H lipo RTR from Riptide would be $260 in Canada, with $90 in additional fees. So it's quite a bit more. It seems that LC is willing to open dealers, so an ambitious Canadian should be able to fill a niche quite easily.

Banggood might be the best bet https://www.banggood.com/search/lc-r...e-0-0_p-1.html

I am driving my all stock EMB-1 buggy mostly on-road (at the moment) on 3s. It is a lot of fun, but the one small issue I'm having is that under hard acceleration is tends to squirm from side to side. The overall direction is constant (it goes where I point it) but it definitely slides side to side as it gets going.

Any ideas on what might be causing this?

Thanks!

Sounds like the diffs may be unloading - never run 3s but seems like its overpowering your traction. I put a pretty thick diff-silicone in my diff to slow the action, you might want to consider the same. The diffs are not "sealed" but they held the thicker fluid just fine. I think I have 10k in there right now.

Have you tightened up the steering slop? I was surprised at first by how much slop there is. I was expecting the car to slam into the right lane boarder then slam into the left one but it drives pretty straight. Doing speed runs is where it might show up the most.

Backyard, what are the best ways to remove some slop?

I built my EMB-T with the aluminum bell crank, knuckles and hub carriers. Also got the bearing pressed steering linkage from EAC Engineering on Etsy. Shimmed with .3mm thick shims behind the stub axle pins to minimize CVD slop. I have virtually no slop.

Thank you!!

I have the linkage from EAC (not yet installed) but i have been staying away from the aluminum knuckles and hub carriers because I was concerned about weight. Sounds like that has not been an issue for you?

As mentioned above, shims and a tighter steering link. On one of my more used cars the end piece on the link from the servo arm to the steering linkage, (proper name?) became loose and needed replacing.

Not really. It's sprung weight (vs unsprung weight like wheels/tires/axles/gears/drive shafts). FWIW, I never built it with the plastic pieces and there are many ways to compensate given the overall weight of the vehicle.

I think it's a much bigger deal on something like 1/28 scale.

I had to replace that on my recently too, the original one had lasted over 2 years though.
