Default RE: Your TRUGGY and your setup

Is track large or small
European or US BMX design
Technical or not
Carpet or dirt
smooth, rough or blownout



Without specifying the type of track and track surface, a person might as well go with the factory setup as a starting point.

Assosiated , 2 hyper 7's and a kyosho inferno, they all have wheels, an engine, a fuel tank, and a couple even have brakes ! LOL !
The best bit about my set up though, is the half drunk loopy driver !

How about actual speeds, lap times, etc. what are track conditions inside, outside, loose, rough, compacted, etc. as this will help people trying to configure for their type of track! IMHO

I'm building a MBX6T M-spec with a OS VZ B V-Spec and I am looking at pipes, I preffer JP but I am looking for advise on which pipe for this combo.
an dynamite 053 works fantastic on that engine. its pretty close to JP pipe but cheaper. a JP3 would work also, or for short tight tracks JP1. but i highly highly recommend the 053.

Sounds good, do you know if it will fit inside the stone guards on the MBX6T? I tried fitting the JP pipe and it hits the stone guard pretty bad.
