gotta love truggies! Hammer down and let it rip.


The truck is super stable! I ran 3 tank fulls and rolled once, and I was pushing it to see what it could do.

The truggy looks good. The only thing missing is it needs the plastic dirt guards on the sides to protect the pipe and transponder. I see holes in the chassis.

Chill-- you are correct, mud guards are still in the making, should be ready soon though. Luther has just also came out with some new gearing for the truck and will hopefully have them by this weekend so I can test it out. the bottom end stock is a little to high geared for my liking, so this should get it some more punch out of the corners.

Good to know about the guards coming out for it. What about the chassis? It have no cut outs in it. It looks like the origanal buggy chassis before it was lighten.

Buggy looks great man! with 6000 post I am sure there is a few things we can learn from you lol! Funny how this buggy is not taking off in Canada. I love mine so far and there is nothing out there that has anything on this buggy!

Yeah .. im sure we can exchange some knowledge on rc..hehe

I agree on you that this buggy has everything that the current expensive brands out there have. At least the know-how, technology.

I say this, if something not on this buggy, probably it is not important after all.

Regretfully, not many chose this brand in Malaysia. They preferred the branded one. At least in my place, North Borneo, almost all of us use Nanda NRB due to the only one offroad hobbyshop selling it. the other brand is the STR8 buggy.

For this version, according to our Malaysia main distributor, rajanghobby, only 3 of us has this version, the NRB3-R.. the one with:
  1. 5mm graphite shock tower f/r
  2. lightened center spur gear
  3. fibre disc f/r brake
  4. lightened outdrive
  5. longer lightened chassis

The rest same or already have in the Pro kit.
All the testing, we done it ourselves. meaning getting the right setup and giving back feedback. pretty hard the process ... time is usually not on our sides.

Whats you all setup be? other than the normal things ... this is at least what i found good for this buggy on a little bit grass track...

5k,5k,3k diff oil. [default: 5k,5k,1k]
I probably wanna try later 5k,7k,3k
CB 14T [default: 13T]

pls share if there's anything i miss here ... like the "you should use this..." kind of info

thanks:
