    Aftershock question?

    I bought a really nice used Aftershock on RCU...like new..heres my question I read some post on it and went ahead and got a HT pipe for it for under $19 shipped....The previous owner had broken the pull start and even though I have a spin starter Im gonna pull engine and fix it since I like my rcs in top shape. He also included new package of aluminum clutch shoes and springs...should I go ahead and install these while I have the engine pulled? What difference will the HT pipe and aluminum clutch shoes make over the stock parts? I have not ran it yet due to fiance being nice and cleaned it while I was at work and stripped LH wheel nuts because we didnt realize they were LH threads...MY first Losi Mt...live and learn!!! Thanks in advance for you help....huey267

    RE: Aftershock question?

    Definitely install the pipe. Clutch shoes - depends on the condition of the ones on it now. If you're not sure - post a pic - preferably in macro...

    RE: Aftershock question?

    My Aftershock came with plastic clutch shoes. They work okay, but the aluminum shoes have way more grip. If you want a wheelie here and there, this will be a good upgrade. The HT pipe over the stock AFT pipe is a night and day change. The whole power band is stronger.

    RE: Aftershock question?

    I recently picked up a aftershock that came with no body on it. I like driving it without the body but the the engine and body post are taking a beating. My question is to everybody does anybody make a roll cage for the truck or something that would bolt onto it.

    I had a roll cage on my LST2 when I got it, I think it was a VG Racing one... But I think they quit making it as I didnt find it on their website. They have one for the muggy that might fit. Otherwise RC Solutions makes one.. I found a quick link to one on the 'bay.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/RC-Solutions...item35bb169441

    The RC Solutions cage is definitely heavy duty, but I dont know if its any better than the VG cage or not. The VG cage had a little weight to it being made of steel.
