Default Sportwerks Mayhem

I know this buggy is dated and not very popular but I have one that is getting rebuilt. It servered me well as a beginner car. Now my girlfriend and kids are really wanting to get into racing so I figured since I'm rebuilding it I would see if anyone knows any mods or conversions I should do to it before I reassemble it. ( Dont trust them with my associated lol ). After they get use to it on the bike track next doors they will start racing at our local track since it is pretty tight.

Put shims under the upper and lower ball studs on the steering it will free it up and dual brakes are good to and lock tight every thing. I didn't do the brake mod but I am soon.

Send a message via AIM to cheesecake

i say just rebuild it with plastic the dual brakes is a waste 2 rotors will stop it as good as 4 i say switch to a fiberglass brake rotor and run the metal pads. i reccomend the steering upgrade bvut other then that replace the plastic and let them have fun with it

Yeah I wont do the break mod it already will lock then up on a dime if needed. Going to get the pro chassis since I hit a curb yesterday showing some tools in a parking lot how bad thier electric "drifters" sucked compared to my LRP spec 3 lol. The tires howled the whole time was fun just dont stop on pavement like the dirt lol. It already drives on rails so the setup wont change.

Default Turmoil

Here is my Turmoil that is on Ebay right now. Car is excellent. Handles awesome. Sweet car for someone starting out. TONS or parts. Spare parts car and spare chassis. Enough parts between everything to literally build two more cars.
