    The baja was in the middle of a front end rebuild...the shocks weren't installed yet.

    Hey, is the baja (not the Dunerunner) a KM? Just noticed some parts that are black. If so how is it holding up?

    RE: My Dune Runner 4x4

    It's a KM but I messed around and ran into a pole that jumped in front of it...it was doing just fine when I was bashing it all over the place...it just didn't do well with the metal pole! I replaced the whole front end with RPM arms and stock HPI parts. My KM is now 60% HPI now due to my loose driving skills, LOL!

    You have some serious $$ sittin there!! I'd be affraid of those poles jumpin out in front of me too!!   I never had noticed that the drive shaft sits at an angle? Does the HPI 4x4 have it like that as well?? Seems like it'd cause binding problems? (But I guess not, since there no real movement (up.down.side-side) in that area..) It amazing all the little linkages and neat engineering that goes into these cars and parts.. Im surprised they can sell em for as little as they do actually.. Oh well, couple of nice rides ya got there!!  Enjoy!!

    Ya, poles dont move. Haha I sure did find that out the hard was with a large scale car. The smaller ones will tend to give. Anyway nice looking buggies bud! Keep us informed on the dunerunner.

    First, the Dune Runner is the 4x4. HPI has no 5th scale 4x4 at this point (main reason I bought the Rampage) The 4x4 doesn't bind at all, it is well thought out and is a totally different chassis than the Baja. The engine is offset because of the gearing assembly and therefore the driveline connection to the front wheels is offset also but it works perfectly. It is a little noisier than the Baja because of all the gearing but not that I put a SS pipe on, it is not noticeable anymore. I got a feeling I will spend a lot less on upgrades on the Dune Runner because the parts are cheaper and and actually less pieces to worry about going bad. I should have some video up tonight from my run yesterday.

    RE: My Dune Runner 4x4

    Cool vid!! That thing sounds good!! Do the "tuned" pipes make a big difference over stock? You can hear it askin for that stall clutch at take off!! Once ya put the 8k stall in there it's gonna be sick!! Now all ya need is a camera man to follow the action!! (We dont ask for much do we??) And be carefull with that thing!! You were flirtin with that "chassis adjuster" out in the field!! (hint: it was white & blue) heheehe..

    I'm not sure but I think they are optional gears to change the ratio. Check your current gears and then refer to this chart;

    Hope that helps...BTW, I haven't changed mine yet and it seems to be a good setup out of the box but I have the steel replacements sitting on the shelf when I burn these out.
    peace

    RE: My Dune Runner 4x4

    I'd upgrade to the metal gears that are now available. One of the first things I did to my Rampage TT was convert to HPI Baja's wheel hubs so I could use baja wheels and tires. Easy upgrade brings in a wide variety of tires and wheels you can finally use.

    RE: My Dune Runner 4x4

    So I have my Dune Runner apart for some maintenance and guess what i found out...the gearing is not what I thought it was...29/31/26/24

    What's the ratio for this combination? Also, if I put in the 25/35/25/25 gears, does anyone know if it will it be faster?

    The Baja SS pipe fits with a minor mod to the spoiler mount. Just get the 8K spring and you'll be straight..
