Hi spratz

I run GO 2072 in Truggy, but I run an A-plus 0801 in my Buggy with no need to bend anything, fits quite well actualy, and a great pipe for the GO GX11 HO and as mentioned, change centre to 44Tooth spur, the HO can handle it

Hey flanno, I have been using the std 6r kit springs on my buggy, pretty sure they are the 8.25 ones. My buggy is so sweet to drive, I love it. Also 40w losi oil front and 35w losi oil rear, std white 5 hole pistons.

Has anyone run the new buku clutch on the 6 or 6r? How did it fit, was it close to the tank? How did you like it compared to stock clutch?

I am running buku in my 6t and love it. Heard from another person that the brake hits flywheel with stock motor mount. I am running strobe rc motor mounts.

Hey guys,

Cars worked great at Nats! Had some small issues in the main events but all in all it was a good weekend. I didn't get home till around 1am Monday night and headed to work at 5am, haven't really stopped since. Lol I'm at lunch right now, soon as I get a break I will get my nationals setups posted for both cars.

Thanks,
Taylor

I know this is not a nitro question, but do any of you guys know what the ride ht. should be on the MBX-6 ECO? Do you change the ride ht. if you put on lower profile tires ?

Thanks

I'm looking for some feedback on these two clutch systems the Buku and the m2c system If anyone has or is running them.

Which one last longer as for shoes

Is one more aggressive as in more wheel spin, ect

Here is my opinion on them as I have run both for a while. The Buku will outlast the M2C wear wise. The M2C will be more aggressive as it is all aluminum shoes vs the aluminum shoe with composite pad on the Buku, however having said this the Buku can be adjusted to be more than aggressive enough by tightening the springs.. Another nice thing about the Buku is that you do not get slag buildup inside your clutch bell over time the Buku actually polishes the inside of the clutch bell so I would recommend installing a new bell when installing the clutch. For buggy I prefer the Buku over other clutches that I have run for its consistent feel. Hope this helps.

I am running a Werks light clutch with 2 carbon shoes with .9 springs and 2 aluminum shoes with 1.0 springs. I will be buying a Buku soon to give it a try on the buggy.
