Has anyone had an issue with clutch bearing consumption?
no but i might check mine and throw in an ofna bell before i open my 10 pack from tko bearings.

That really depends on what brake bias you're comfortable with. It seems in your case the brakes favor the front heavily, which is how some drivers like it.

Check the gap between the brake pads for both front and rear, and the length of the linkage on the brake piston connectors.

I read earlier that some people had trouble instaling their KO receiver in the radio box..and they are tiny. Im assuming people are having trouble Airtronics 2.4 receivers too? Is it really that tight??

all my spektrum ones fit fine. anywho i was at motorama today and got there just in time for pro buggy qualifiers. it was great and since it was early there was little smoke. ryan had a lil bit of a ruff go but i left before the 5pm race. i watched 3 rounds of truggy and by the 3rd it was horrific in there eyes burning, ect. i love the smell of nitro but not like that. this was my first indoor experiance. 75% of the pros had masks on, the real deal double cartrige ones not the ghetto paper ones! the smoke was alot man. and the seating had an inch of dust covering everything so every one stood around the rails and it made it ruff to see. I HAVE VIDEO OF BUGGY IM POSTING TO YOUTUBE NOW. SHOULD BE UP IN AN HOUR. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND WHERE I SAT WAS NO GOOD AND IT WAS MY FIRST TIME WITH A NEW CAMERA. SORRY. DONT ASK ME FOR A LINK I DONT KNOW HOW TO DO IT. MY TITLE IS THIS EXACTLY IF U WANT TO SEARCH. MOTORAMA 2011 PRO BUGGY QUALIFIER.

just got my tbonz racing front and rear skids in and they are prob the highest quality ones ive ever seen. Its a very dense plastic. Its made of delrin. They should last a ton longer than any de skids.

went through a few pages on this. So far, issues so far i have read are the following.

1) proper link installation. A few people fried throttle servos.
2) thin front outer suspension holder. Is this updated on kits or do i need to purchase this

anything else im missing?
