*Racing Weight: 7lbs 8oz (3.4kg)









Essentials

a) IMPORTANT: Use wash like MUGE0161 "Mugen FRONT TRACK WIDTH ADJUSTMENT SPACER) on lower Pivot balls to prevent premature failure.

Dimensions of washer: 6mm inner and 14mm outer so any equivalent brand will work.


Recommendations

a) Use Alum Servo Arm

TD340122 25T
TD340123 24T
TD340124 23T

or Hot Bodies 67168 24T, 67169 25T or 67167 23T


b) The tank lid seal can be adjusted with the screw in the centre. The tighter the screw the LESS the tank will seal. Screw-off 1 or 2 turns just make it perfect.



c) For the front bumper not touch the inserts, also have removed the boss inside the front bumper

The front bumper on the buggy has two standoffs on it, each standoff is positioned right over the insert on either side, if you nose dive to hard or hit the front awkward the standoffs can push your hinge pin through the back insert.
The fix is to dremel off the standoffs.



d) Also, glue the nut in the servo-saver

e) Shock Build options

For Emulsion build see this post:

Definitely has some interesting features. Nice to see some innovation. That radio tray is looks great and moving the diff to adjust the mesh instead of the engine is a interesting idea.

I would say most things now days are based off of a Mugen. BUT...

That does look nice. I think that moving the diff is a great idea. The engine with heat and all of the vibration can often times (if not lock-tighted) will move. Moving the diff instead makes it to where you arent fiddling with engine position and jacking with the screws to adjust your mesh. (Something I often adjust between runs) I like the Idea of the engine not moving. Seems to me that if the diff moves or, in some strange act of physics, comes off, your high dollar engine is fine. Not sitting on the ground revving to the moon until it detonates. I might have to check into getting one of these.

For their sake I hope they made the new one so it doesn't break as often.
