You would need to drill a bunch of new holes to make the long chassis fit ebuggy. The 998 E e-buggy parts are here.

All TD1-R parts will fit the older 998 buggies, but you may need to buy 2-3 parts to make them fit. example, for new rear arms require new C&D blocks. The new alum front upper arm holder requires the new front carbon fiber support plate. To use CVD's, you also need the new steering blocks.

It drives like a Mugen except more rear traction. It drives nothing like a c-hub car because it is a pillow ball front suspension just like a mugen except easier to adjust camber.

Hey guys, here is a setup sheet from the 2019 SIC that we ran on Cole's car First real race with the SOAR and by the end of the event his lap times were near the fastest of the day Just took some time to find how hard he could push and remain steady and consistent.

Feel free to post any questions or comments. Thanks!
