Just make sure yr gear mesh is not too tight. If there's alot of grinding sound, it might be because of yr gears being too close together. Check for the gear wear as well.

So, if you need screws and fastener, check out that place. I am sure, it is cheaper than more hobby shop.
Alternatively, you could try sungei road. Lots of good deals there too.

I have a M8 but it does not seen to work. I notice the tx frequency is 40.75 whereas the Rx frequency is 40.875. Is it a matching crystal?

Saw this 1/8 buggy at Rotor. It comes with .28 pull start engine and a 2.4ghz transmitter selling at 450sgd. Need some advise or feedback from anybody who's playing buggies. Thanks.

Hello Alan.

1. Yes, you can weld back your pipe's stinger if it is bent or broke off.
Make sure you only use aluminum filler rod to MIG (Metal Inert Gas - Argon) weld.

2. Possible, just change the shocks to a shorter ones; to lower the CG (Centre of Gravity) and get a set of Truggy tires instead of using those big monster tires.

Hope it helps.
