aluminium hub extensions it is a bad option
try to use offset rims
less weight
less rotating mass
beter stering
less bearing overload

When my LRP Spec 3 started eating plugs, it was several tanks (over a few-month period..) after I had switched fuels(from SW %25 to Tornado Race Blend %25..) Since going back to SW the plug-killing went away. I have since heard of people talking about how 1.) Tornado does go bad, and 2.) SW doesn't...

Don't know if that helps - probably doesn't - but just throwing it out there...

Also, what plugs are you using? I always liked OS A5's in my SH-based engines. But yeah, when my LRP was eating plugs, it was eating OS's.. [X(]

There are probably lots of reasons it could be eating plugs. I have heard of LRP's developing this problem.. Whether it's something minor like a tuning issue, or something more drastic though, I don't know.. If your performance and temps and smoke are good, and your fuel is fresh and good, and it's still killing a plug a tank, then I don't know.. [sm=confused.gif]

Could maybe be a head shim issue if you live at some weird elevation??.. Or are your running %30 without having added a shim(or removed one.. I forget which.. Have never run %30, but have heard you have to do something shim-wise if you do...)

messn try to buy werks orginall glow plug it will be the best to start
buy a new fuel maybe your O'Donnell is old and nitro fly away
setup engine again on new fuel and plug ....... burn 2-3 tanks and switch plug to new one just for case...... burn one more tank and check the plug
and buy a new one fuel filter inserts
i recomended Novarossi glow plug and sidewinder fuel

Anyone still lurk on these forums? I am rebuilding mine and just ordered a new hardened chassis, a hitec HS-7955tg servo for steering and a LRP .28 among many other things. I hope that I am impressed by the performance of this truck, I am looking for some thing that can take corners at a relative quick speed without flipping over. The savage flips way too easy for me and I hope the muggy's chassis can withstand some sort of abuse. I am looking forward to putting it back together and let me know if anyone else is still running their muggys. Oh, and i bought some Badlands to go all around. Already have a 12t clutch bell. and i got bearings for the steering assembly and new dynamite long life clutch shoes. I read this whole guide and am hoping that the muggy will perform good. I will get some pics up next week if anyone is still on this thread.

Hey!

I straightened it as best I could and will be ordering the new one off of E-bayhttp://cgi.ebay.com/LOSI-LOSB2275-HARD-ANODIZED-MAIN-CHASSIS-PLATE-MUGGY-/270623449092?pt=Radio_Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3f026a2004 Is this what you bought?...talk to you later!!Mess[:@]

My Muggy with LRP Spec 3 28 and Jammin hard ano JP-2 pipe was one of the funnest RC's I've had.. Good power.. And tough..

How in the h.ell are you guys bending chassis'?

7955 is THE servo to get too..

Get it all together and go run it.. If you run into clutch issues, look into fabricating some kind of chassis stiffener brace like I had..(pics here somewhere I think..)

Dynamites are good, but the Fioroni was better I found..

Badlands are also great tires - best on the Muggy (and LST2) with 0 offset...

Get up som pics!!

I miss my Mug...

EDIT - ha ha... Just checked e-bay here for Muggys... And what do I see at the top of the list? My old one!! Ha ha... Guy's asking way too much for it... Bought it used myself - and that from a guy who'd pieced it together from e-bay..

Woh, just thought I'd take a look on here. I miss my muggy[&:]! Right now my Savage Flux is my bashing vehicle, and it's a beast. Racing I have an 8ight-E 2.0 and 8t 2.0 nitro. Love em both, IMHO best racers out there. Though I would still pick up a muggy in a heartbeat. Even trade my savage flux for a bl one. Just thought I'd drop in a say hello mess...

Hey, its coming along nicely. Pictures tomorrow afternoon sometime hopefully. I piut those bearings in the steering post, 6x10x3 and the steering is tight. Like it is binding? The only thing I see tghat I can't remember how it goes is the servo saver side. I put a bearing on top and bottom but it seems like the metal servo saver tube is binding on the chassis, the steering post isn't showing on the bottom of the tube like on the opposite side. The bearing and post go inside the tub and sit flush on the steering saver side. Any ideas or do the bearings make it harder to turn? I haven't tried the bushings and seeing it that is tghe problem. Let me know,

Thanks!

Hey guys, do you have the part #'s or bearing sizes needed to replace the bushings on the bellcrank and servo saver? Lost one of the bearings while i was at work trying to fix it up. It kinda sucks cause i am back out here in Iraq doing crazy mods. on the same truck. But at least this time we have a nicer track to run on and some killer jumps.

I think it is the same size bearings that they use in servos. If you have a old servo with bearings, give that a try. Cheers.

Yeah about that i dont have any old servo's laying around out here with me in Iraq. I had the link once with all the stuff but it is no longer up. So i was hoping someone still had the sizes that i needed for those particular bearings.

I believe the steering post bearings are 6x10x3mm.
