Should you ALWAYS replace the O rings when this happens?

Kyosho should be making its debut on Saturday!
Make sure your shocks aren't over extending. Use the droop screws on the lower a-arms to limit them.

Also make sure the spring clip is seated well...not sure how that popped off.

I was planning on it until something came up about an hour ago. Can't make it now which sucks...I'm well rested and ready to go now.

Gixxer - I did not forget about the $ you owe me for that motor. I need it for baby formula

Sorry, I missed that question! Unfortunatley we've had no monster trucks in a while. We have had a motorstorm class (run what ya brung) in the past but right now the turn outs are a bit low!

Default Hi All.

I'm new here at the forum. I was at the track today (to watch) for the first time. Met gixxerman and a few others. The racing action was cool. Now all I need to do is park my truggie and get a buggie.

Anyone got any leads on a buggie setup for sale?

My name's Rob. It's nice to meet, what seems to be, a great bunch of guys.

Well, fixed the sticking clutch problem. 1 broken spring and worn shoes, replaced springs and ground spurs off of shoes. But a more perminant fix is on the way. Got a Fioroni Versa clutch and new Clutch Bell will be here Wednesday. Gonna make it more than 1 qualifier next week.

Default Spektrum????

Anyone ever have a problem losing bind during a race. This is the second time I have had loss of power at a far end of a track, it cuts out with no power to steer or throttle for a few feet or till marshalled then comes back to life.Radio has full charge in batts. receiver is fine until it gets out a far distance,no cuts in the wire or binding at all. I had the same problem a few weeks ago and I rebinded it and it was fine. So before racing this week I rebound it and it was fine until the a main it went south again. I read somewhere that you should not bind at the track due to interference of other Spektrum's but some guys tell me I should rebind at every track and before each race at big races. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

On a side note congrats Brad on the win. Brent and I went to Garlands this week and I qualified 3rd and he was 5th out of 19 slash's. Yeah 19!! The a main was not good as my truck went nutso and he broke putting us 9th and 10th. Looking to run Altoona this weekend. See ya then........Brian.
