Well I don't bash around with it, too good of a car for that :b. I race probably once every 2 weeks. I have I think 2 or 3 sets of rear arms spare, so it's not a problem if I need to change them. Apart from the bolts that I need to take off have been worn so their is a burr on them and my allen key doesn't fit lol. So I'll just leave them until they break then I will change them. The front are perfect only the slightest amount of movement, and I can't see there really being any stress on anything for the rear so I'm sure they will be fine if I leave them. (if it aint broke don't fix it) right?? :b
Also mine will b a brushless dnx408. I only just bought this thing probably a few weeks ago and all I'm waiting on is my hobbypro conversion kit. Well I actually bought 2 second hand rollers. One is fully in parts just as a spare car. and the other obviously for racing. I'll put a pic up of the car later.

Default losi flywheel

Does anyone know if the losi flywheel will work on the car? The flywheel nut that came with my kit will not thread on properly.

Thanks in advance...

Hi everyone, regarding the problem i had with the slop in the rear left lower arm. Well i got really bored so i decided to pull the rear diff off and take the lower arm off to see where the slop is coming from. I had a fairly good idea of what it could of been, either the actual arm had slop from the pin stretching the hole or the rubber stops have been ovalled and need replacing. Well i found this. looks like the rear arm must of taken a pretty hard hit from previous owner to do this. So i decided to replace all the black plastic pin retainers and the bent bar with a spare i had. All is back together and there still is a fair bit of slop in that arm still but not as much. So maybe the actual arm needs replacing because it must of ovalled the hole in the arm when it took the hard hit. So i will replace that tonight and see how it is then. May aswell put brand new lowers on both sides to be slop free Heres the damage.

Alright, changed both the rear lower arms and there is Hardley any slop now, apart from the slop in the rubber washers which is hardly anything. So now I'm happy with that. Hopefully they don't go all sloppy again for a while.

I was there racing. His buggies were dialed as usual. The DEX408 was the fastest thing on the track!

He won SC because Josh Wheeler's battery dumped halfway through the last lap. His SC truck looked good also.
