I get ya know as far as after market stuff. I know Degani was running an after market clutch on his buggy, but has actually switched back to the stock version as it's proven to work well.

Part of the problem with after market companies is that they only make things if they feel it's going to be profitable. Well, at least for the most part. A company like Proline, for instance, won't make a body for a buggy unless they think thousands are being sold. Unfortunately, the Z-Car buggy is still in its infancy as for popularity and might not see tons of after market stuff as there aren't many out there right now in the U.S. Combine that with the fact the economy is at a low point and you'll find quite a few companies that are/were making option parts are holding back on making anything as they're not sure as to what will be a sure sale.

As for screws... well.... screws are screws. Personally, I find those "stainless steel" sets to be softer than the steel alloy screws that the buggy comes with. Sure, you can use aluminum screws, but the whole beauty of the stock screws is that they work and don't snap all of a sudden as they're not strong enough.
Yeah I hear ya I do run buggys stock most of the time, but if i see something to improve I cant help but tinker!! Your average racer likes to have set-up help and support You have certainly been helpful!! Thanks!! It seems more people are taking interest in this buggy, so I want to help

Yep stiff springs w/ 60 ae front 50 ae rear, the buggy relly seems to have tight diffs, so i keep giong lower diff wts last set up was 3-3-8 started w 5-5-2, just tring to dial in that sweet spot
