A little off topic, but how are we all tuning our engines. Do we start with the low end and idol or the high speed? Do we tune for the engine to idol all day or load up after a minute?

Question: i know the kit shock bodies the anodizing wears fast. I was told if you buy the shock bodies seperate that the anodizing is much better. Im curious to know if this is true? Lastly, if this is the case, is the anodizing also different if you buy the complete shock set or just the shock body?

Thanks in advance.

I believe the only way to get the hard ano shock bodies is to buy them separately. I've had a set for over a year and they still look good.

Yes it is true, it is 100 times better than the anodizing (more like spray paint) they put on the kit shocks. And yes, you get the better anodizing either way you buy them (complete or just bodies), at least I have.

As much as I love this buggy, and I REALLY do (best buggy I have ever driven), this will be the main reason I leave it. It gets really old to spend that much more on a kit, and then have to spend several hundred more dollars to get a real hard ano chassis, shocks, towers, etc... Basically, all the stuff that comes standard on others kits, for a lesser price.

Hope the info helps.

Brad

Never regret the investment. Buggy is dialed. All cars had drawbacks..Anodizing don't affect handling..Like alot of folks say on here, drop it on most tracks and its 90%+ there. Minor adjustments and it rocks...

Yes sir, I couldn't agree more! Just frustrating to me. While anodizing doesn't affect performance, it does affect maintenance costs. Not sure what I'm gonna do yet, but my wallet is screaming uncle...lol.

Awesome buggy though! Like I said, best I've ever driven, and I've owned or driven them all, except HB and Agama.

There is a wealth of info in the nitro engine forum that will get you what you need as well. Engine tuning is kind of off-topic for this thread, so you may not get many responses on that one.

Sometimes yes. Sometimes it gets deleted if it's off-topic, and the question(s) is already answered if you just look in the correct forum.

Okay okay more on topic...
How do I connect the VP Pro battery switch, more so how are you guys installing and routing on the car? Does 1 end go into the batter box for a connection (or outside the box) and 1 end into the receiver?
