Premierehobbies is offering a great price on these kits for sure. Try them out and get one for the new season. I really like the looks of this buggy. Just need to get a splash gaurd made for the tank and the leaking diffs fixed up from what I see. All the other stuff is so minor it doesnt really count.

The diffs don't leak, for god's sake. I am the biggest noob and I put my diff's together fine with no leaking. Just because a couple people said they were leaking doesn't mean everyone is having that problem. Put some green slime on those gaskets and be done with it.

The car needs extra attention during assembly. I found that simply rotating around to each screw in opposite directions and slowly tightening the diff helps to seat the two parts the best...Just a little extra time and patience...

I gotta agree with you there. The shim holds the oring in place a lot better. I tried putting one in from a mugen, it was too thick....

They are way to big in diameter for that. They will not clear the front driveshaft and the springs offered are not nearly light enough.

Default Shock building

Can anyone explain whether the first part to go in the shock (TD230018) is a rubber o ring or plastic? Does it go inside the shock before the red o-ring or does it act as a seal on the red alu cap?

Pictures are more than welcome!

Regards

The rookie

OK so you put the rubber o rings and spacers in the shock and then the thin black oring 230018 and then the the plastic washer, last the alum cap. The this plastic washer seems to only go in 1 way if it does not stick through the red alum cap dis-assemble the shock and flip it over. It needs to seat in the red alum cap properly. I hope this helps.

But in the drawing the red o-ring are the second to go in, or do i have it all wrong?

As I read the drawing it is:

1. TD23008
2. red o-ring
3. black spacer
4. red o-ring
5. thin plastic washer

??
