Tried this on the B3 Facebook page with very little answers. I have a T3 & a B3 that no matter what I do I can’t prevent air from being sucked into the shock bodies. This happens even with the cap off. New o rings (factory and aftermarket) new bushings machined and the black ones that come with the kit. Several sets of each over the last couple of months. Going broke on shock rebuild kits and bushings. Ready to just give up on the whole deal. Been trying to get ahold of associated for a week now with null responses.

AE is moving to a new location. That's why you haven't been able to contact them. They should be back to normal soon.

If you can find a super thin washer to fit the bottom of the shock bodies, it will help compress the o rings tighter.

Build them with green slime also. I let the o rings sit in a bag with slime till I am ready to use them.

I'm not on the B3 FB pages, all the good questions or even known issues get no response. But when the user screws up, you'll see 25 comments..

Overall I was very impressed with the truck. Here's a short vid of me drving it. (Green with Yellow Wheels)

I would assume a buggy would be in the works first. Truggy is like a red headed step child for R&D, and the T3.1 is one of the best.

Shim the diffs correctly, pull lots of trigger.

You just buy the parts separate, just ordered them by part number from the manual when the electric/nitro build instructions split. About $185 if you ate buying everything new (motor/esc separate of course)

Default Flywheel clearance on rc8T3.1

I have a newly built T3.1 and my flywheel is not going far enough down into the chassis hole. Iím not sure if theres a Truggy flywheel or if I need lower engine mounts. I am using all factory parts. Please help.

Buggy and truggy run the same motor mounts and flywheel. Check your starter box for alignment and worn wheel.

Some starter boxes don't have the flywheel reach up very high into the chassis slot, so be sure to check that. For example, the Protek one requires that the starter box assembly is shimmed up by 2mm.

So what is the verdict on this truggy? I still have my old CE version of the old truggy. I seem to recall that this new version had some durability issues? Is that the case? Also, is there anything at all which will cross over from the older to the current version? Diffs, pinions, anything? Thanks..
