Impulse and Impact, Chassis the same, Frt/RR Bulkheads, Frt/RR Upper & lower A-Arms, Top plate are the same. The Impulse you use the standard wheels & tires rubber, or foam (HPI) foams. Some mods 26mm frts, 30mm Foam on RR,done with a dremel. .The Impact uses different Diffs, Dogbones and out drives, They run at 235mm, Impulse @ 200mm. Sightly wider. Most the composite pieces are interchangabl between the Impulse and Impact. Try upgrading to 2-speed trany with Impact 2-speed @ Centex clutch from the Impact. You'll be happy with that upgrade.

For parts Stormer Hobbies, Serpent.com, MMR, and AshfordHobby.com. Try these hobby shops. I think you'll find what you need.

Hi guys I have a Impulse myself that i just bought from my cousin but i seem to have a problem with it. I have a rb .12 engine on it with a centax clutch. If i give it full throttle on take off my engine would scream and the car wont move. But if I take off slow then hit it full throttle it works fine until i make a turn and it would start screaming again but no speed. You guys think it could be my oneway bearing in transmission?

remove the engine.
take the clutch off.
centex clutches have one round shoe so clean everything. try to adjust the pringe tension as it was set to before you took it apart.

(there's gunk or oil in the clutch from the front bearing on the crank case)


hope this heplss
