taking it apart tonight bud.... and yes, added security to the pins is a must have and certainly a great idea to keep the pins from falling out when the grub screws get loose. I was going to lightly dremel a flat notch on all pins and use the shrink tubing upgrade.

Thanks for reminding me, lol recovering from yesterdays events!!! :lol:

Thanks man..yeah it came with one but i took it out....dremelled a little radius on the guard for the stinger so it'll lean lower.

this chassis is longer and everything (drivetrain) is more centered. had to dremel the servo plate for some clearance on the spur gear.

LMAO..he has both Mugen's truggy & buggy, Kyosho buggy, and now he wants to get the Losi 8T. he says most have switched to the Losi's cause they are winning all the races.

we're heading to Wolcott this sunday and see how this thing runs.

Here are KMW Racing 15.5mm Big Bore shocks.

They have no plastic parts. Everything is either aluminum or silicon bronze.
