Default Truggy...

Was wondering if anyone made a truggy yet out of one of the redcat or Himoto's 1/8th scale buggies. That is something I am going to do once it arrives...

Cool...it will be interesting to see how the clutch holds up under the heavier load of powering bigger wheels and tires.

Proline sell an axle adaptor that extends the length of the axle and lets you use truck rims with a 23mm hex. It's made for 1/8 buggies.
