I've got a lot of spare sets of tt01-e bearings if you need one. Can't borrow my buggyra body - it's mine

Question: How do I get rid of the "boing, boing, boing" in the Eurotruck?

The best option is to take all the electronics out of it and set it on a shelf for the remainder of its life.

So.. a few things. First, make sure the body holes are a bit oversize, and put the body clips on a hole or two high. Second, some goop on the shocks helps. I currently have 40k in my shocks. "shocks". Heh. Driving smoother can help with the bounce.. to some extent. So can geting generous on the layers of glue on the tire sidewalls.

.... not that I have everything solved. :-)

Pretty sure it's not possible to save anymore. Nice just costs to much. Theirs a reason why most tracks are in crap hole buildings.

I visited just about an hour ago. They're still open this week, and they're looking to have a final race next Saturday. Here's hoping that's how it works out.

It doesn't look like we can ~save it now~ but we can still enjoy it while the track is here.
