    My ebuggy

    Scratch built but started as a slash, been sitting on a shelf for months whilst my son and I have been racing 2wd SCT and 2wd buggy on an indoor clay and finally went to a proper outdoor track, seen the nitro 1/8 and ebuggy's flying over the back triples and rest is history...

    Lcg Traxxas chassis
    Xo1 driveshafts, castor blocks, steering blocks, rear bearing carriers, front GTR shocks, 17mm hubs, 6mm bearings and diff centres
    Traxxas alloy front shock tower
    Traxxas rear platnium gtr shocks
    Traxxas 6752 extended shafts
    Alloy steering bellcrank
    Tekno big bone centre shaft
    Strc ebuggy kit, rear shock tower, rear outer hinge bolt
    Proline protrac kit
    HR alloy centre diff and motor mount
    Hobbywing ezrun 2650kv 4268 and 150a ESC
    Sanwa 20kg servo, MT4 and rx371w receiver
    Losi 8ightE cab forward body and random wing

    Looking into modified front shock shafts and springs....

    Looks great! An aluminum race chassis is next! (Lol)

    very tasteful choices there for a light and powerful buggy.

    I would love to see how that center diff works with 1/8 power combo. Most people says only for 2s power. Yours is upgraded so maybe it can handle power.

    By the looks of the picture, your front tires have quite a significant wear stripe! If you have a center diff in there, increase the weight of the diff oil. That will reduce the front and ballooning and should eliminate the feel of your front pulling the vehicle around. Go up a significant amount in weight. That way, you can understand and realize how your vehicle behaves from that type of adjustment. If you feel that the center diff oil weight is too heavy, then gradually work your way down until you think you’ve dialed it in. I hope this helps!

    Thanks! Tires are an old set from bashing on the street, rotated and before centre diff....

    Got some 48mm Losi shafts ordered for the front xo1 shocks and hoping to help with on power stability by giving it a bit extra droop.
    Had a few issues, spring bases breaking or the spring popping out and the latest ae cups have solved that issue and also have an assortment of heights available.

    Slowly getting a handle of this beast....

    Front GTR shocks on the X0-1 have a travel limiter in them. Might want to remove it and see if it helps.

    Yeah swapped them to compression limiters.
    Got some 40wt and 1.4,1.5,1.6mm 2 hole pistons to experiment along with the longer Losi shafts.

    Been concentrating on 2wd racing, getting more consistent and slowly lowering my lap times, even rustling a few feathers along the way!

    Still learning but having experience as a young redneck, hoon and fiddling with real cars all my life really helps as I can apply that knowledge to a new found love which costs heaps less, brings huge smiles and keeps me grounded.
