rc10 mid motor

Post by knucklebuster »

you need to lower the inner mounting point for the rear turnbuckles, and a 'mad max' style body.

You also need to flip the spur gear to the other side, or your buggy will go backwards when you pull the trigger.

Mr. Ed,

Why lower the rear turnbuckle mount (shock travel is only about 1/4")? Thanks!
