STEERING POST SPRING
I’ve noticed on some set up sheets, depending on the driver they have different tension on the steering post spring. For Example What’s the reason for having the spring tension 1/2 turn out from tight compared to 1 1/2 turn out? Is it really that noticeable? Does a rough bumpy track need more or less tension than a smoother track?

It's actually very noticeable if it's too loose as it will cause steering response issues. Often when it's too loose, it will be difficult to make tight corners and the car can "wander" on rough tracks. Most drivers will run it half a turn from fully tight.

I crank mine down pretty much all the way, always have on my buggies. Never have had an issue but I always use a good strong servo on the steering.

Is anyone else using velcro on their stock body. It looks like there is two notches for it on both sides of the radio tray/ mud guards that align with the body ?

seems like last time I tried this on my nitro buggy the Velcro and adhesive started to melt from the heat coming off my pipe and header

I don't use them. I don't even think velcro came with the kit? If it did, I missed it.

The adhesive doesn't hold and you usually just end up pulling both pieces off with the body.

Got it on my EB410 as well, same thing. Mostly useless.

I use them. Didn't have any melting, But I think the oil/possible heat will cause the left side tape to detach from the chassis and you have to clean and replace.

I use just the fuzzy side on the chassis guards. Keeps the body from rubbing too much...

Default Trouble with shock o rings

Iím having issues with Bag L with the o ring that fits into the shock collar. Did anyone else run into any issues? It just seems like the o ring is not fitting snugly enough into the collar for me to twist it up the shock body. Iíve never had an issue like this during a build. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I didnít have any issues with the fit.

Make sure you are not accidentally swapping the collar o-rings and the shock cap o-rings. The latter are significantly thicker.

Is there a possibility to move rear shocks to the front of the arms?

IMO the NB48 being a Corvette and the 8X being a Camaro. Iíve had different buggies over the years nitro and Ebuggy and Tekno has exceeded my expectations.
