Locally we used to use vp but guys switched to byrons after going through a lot of rear bearings on vp. Now everyone is switching to bones due to cost (byrons got really expensive the last couple...

I was talking about the upper shock standoff. There is a longer one that aligns the shock angle with the antisquat and locks in the rear end more in bumps and in sweepers. There is now an optional...

It must be a chassis stiffener. Looks like they setup the battery straps to allow for shorty packs. I like what I see from a design standpoint and there are 8000 mah batteries with 25mm height that...

Body is a little thin but they sell a thicker one. Rear shock mounts need the longer version. Nothing else you really need. Purple rear shock spring for rear and red for front are an improvement but...

Throttle 130 oz+. Steering 250 is a good minimum c hubs can run closer to 200 and pillowballs need 250 or more. Speed I like 0.12s for throttle and 0.1-0.12 for steering.

The Mugen quick access bulkheads are not really adjustable. If the diff has some front to back or up and down play you cannot adjust it. I built a Mbx8t truggy that was that way. I also saw a guy I...

That chart will look a lot different in the summer since most of the country wonít be running nitro in February since outdoor tracks are a little cold.

The best thing to do is go to the track and find out what tires the fast guys are using. Buckshots and slidelocks are both good where I race but not sure about Florida. I disagree with the guys...

Converting an evo to mp10 takes a lot less parts than the truck. Strr is two generations behind instead of one. Shocks and diffs are same between evo and mp10. Arms, hinge pins, shock towers, rear...

Yeah almost nothing is the same. Engine mounts and some ball ends and screws might carry over. Clutch is the same I think. Radio box might be.

Ring and pinion were different but everything else was the same between strr and 7.5. There were some hot bodies gears for the lightning truggy that also fit in the strr. I bet those would be hard to...

They help a lot on faster, bumpier outdoor tracks especially in sweeping, high speed turns. They are for rear only. You actually need shorter ones on the front if you want to get the same effect in...

For me the mp9 lost traction more suddenly than the mp10. The mp10 works with a wider range of tires too. Drive a Mugen for a while and you will think the mp10 pushes on power.

CJ is a younger kid and kids are up and down a lot. I wouldnít base much off that.

Tessman was faster in 2018 than 2019 and he didnít switch cars. Sometimes people just have a bad year.
