Yeah i thought case looked different also so it make sense he didn't want pics of buggy with body off. Im sure Orion wouldnt like him running another motor. The Orion motors are junk i had 2 of them nightmare to tune and dont last very long.

I checked his buggy out.....pretty much box stock TKI3. The hubs appeared to be stock as well. Car was flying....lapped the whole field. He had the fastest lap in both truggy and buggy.

Are the alum hubs a necessity? If so, what degree?

Doesn't need to be balanced every time. Saves the trouble of taking it out every time if you want to just pump some extra juice in quickly before the main.

i dont believe the hubs are wider or narrower. The rear hubs that come with the new kits are swept 2mm toward the rear. The ones that came with mp9 were not. Look at where the bearings are inserted on tebos rear hubs they are more underneath where the rear camber link attaches. Someone correct me if im wrong.

The stock hexes on the rear that come with the tki3 kits and the tki2 are narrower than the ones on the front.

I don't think anyone is using the 16deg ones so my advice would be to get the 13deg ones and you should be good. Maybe Sean could chime in?

Thanks for the reply, hopefully tomorrow I will get a chance to quick over the whole assembly.

Funny you guys say that. They have been great for me, but I don't run my stuff on the ragged edge. I have been running Orion engines for about a year and a half and have had great luck with them I will admit that I am in the minority with that though. Most people seem to have bad luck with them.

Got 9 or 10 gallons out of my first one that I ran last year.

I looked at Tebo's buggy several times and I know he took the lid off for many people. He is not running anything that you or I can't get. He is very quite and reserved but is truly a great person and mort important, not a fake...

I fully agree... I raced with him when I lived in the Midwest. Very cool and collected. He is a kind and laid back person.
