I didnít watch the race today... since I was racing my 8x but by looking at the lap times it appears DP flamed out a few times at AMS. At the Silver State race I think DP had an electrical issue of some sort but Iím sure his car did not break. So based on this info... as well as my experience never breaking the buggy after a ton of crashes... thereís nothing wrong with it. Itís actually the most durable buggy Iíve driven.

Cheers.

Its not the car that he has been having problems with. I watched the race and It looked like he was the fastest guy there he just has not had any Luck at all when it comes to Nitro. The Worlds he was in the transfer spot in his semi got taken out and flamed out why upside down missed the main. Nitro Challenge he drove from last to second taking the spot from the guy that won the worlds. Silver state he got out to a huge lead in truggy and his truck broke going over the back double. In Buggy same thing he was out front and car didn't turn going into the corner and out. AMS he drove to the front making it look easy then had some mistakes and fell back then problems start happening. No Luck but bad Luck. He dominated the A2 in E buggy and got the overall.

Dakotah has been working through issues here and there. Worlds was a flame out in a bump spot. He was having trouble with the fuel he was having to use there as it was different. Silver state, he had a cell go bad in a receiver pack (not the dynb0510). AMS he had a pressure line come off the tank. He had this zip tied and must have missed a little with the zip tie placement. It happens, we are all human. Still a bummer for him but he is pushing forward and pumped for nats!

Lots of setup sheets out there and most of them are running Mugen or AE springs.... any idea why and are there any rate charts that compare different springs for different companies?
Are the Mugen springs being used the 70mm and 86mm ones?
A lot of setup sheets list Mugen 9.0 front springs, but there seem to be a few different weight springs, Iím assuming the wire size is different, anyone know which set their talking about?
Thanks guys!

Mugen are the 1.6 version. 8.75 and 10.25 or 10.5. They are better on square edged bumps.

itís an insert you can put in or take out of your fuel tank. With it out, it adds 5cc of fuel to your tank capacity. With it in, it meets IFMAR regulations for fuel capacity in nitro vehicles.
