Hey Felix - congrats on your new truggy dude....it looks great!

I was one of many waiting for this truggy to come out from day one, but i was a bit disappointed they didn't kit it like the TQ version which has the alloy suspension holder set with captivated hinge pins....much better than e-clips.

a few must have upgrades in the near future

alloy suspension holder set.
adjustable engine mount.

then you can go for the alloy uprights & c-hubs etc etc etc :P

get a nice .21 like a RB C6 bud...then you will own the track :)

good luck with it.

why would he do that when most truggy classes allow you to run a .28 engine? gear that sts and take advantage of the torque.

everyone knows a top quality .21 will be best choice for racing.

maybe this will help you out some.

on a buggy or truggy you don't need the torque as much as you need the high revs.

the main thing about using a .21 over a 28 is the fuel economy... ill most likely have a .21 by time i hit up an big races...

I just had a brand new sts28 sitting in the box so i thought id try it

also a .28 on a hard packed surface will alow the tires to break alot faster and easier causing you to lose acceleration with means slower lap times..

Racing isnt all about big balls... its about strategy... .21's offer many advantages over .28's in some situations and .28's offer advatages over .21's in some situations.. It all depends on the driver the track and the vehicle... In racing there is no magical solution that will make you win every race on every surface.. Racing is alot of experimentation to see what works and what doesnt...

Throttle controll would appear to be a key factor in running a larger motor. But as i said...gear it right and run it. Dont get to happy with the trigger and it should have no problem.

Yupperz no matter how weell there tuned if you keeping them runnig at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle and never go above that the run like *censored*.... Hence why most of the guy go with .21 in buggys and truggy on hard packed surfaces

Looks nice Russ. Now throw a STS D21T MKII in there. That'll make some serious power.
