hi everyone! I just picked up a used muggy of the net. it came with two pooched motors (didn't know they were pooched). so I just got a axial .28RR-2 today. with a 13t vented clutch bell. I still have to get some new clutch parts. can anybody recommend some gear? I am still a nitro noob, so any advice would be appreciated. what i have so far is the motor, clutch bell, shim kit and bearings. what else do I need? also I have the header and a trinity pipe. dunno if they are any good, but they look pretty cool lol. thanx in advance.

T-MAXXRich that jump was sick!

Not sure what all came with the truck but most everything should just switch over, you may want to play with the center diff gearing but other than that just run it and then switch stuff out to fit your needs. I got one about a month ago off rcu b/s forum and stuck one of my Collari .32's into it and this thing just fly's,Iam going to stick a big block pipe on it to open up the top end(was running a buggy pipe).

Just picked up a used Muggy. Its running a LRP 28 and the 46spur with a 13CB. It has some badlands on it and is a bit slow off the line. He also included a 12T CB. Since there is lots of snow and we don't go for high speed runs if we throw on some of the LST2 sized wheels/tires (to get some good ground clearance) what spur would you recommend? The 48 or the 50 tooth?

I would not put bigger tires on.. The Muggy's achilles heal is gearing, which strains the clutch. Bigger wheels will make it worse. Put the 12T CB on, and check that the clutch is in good condition.. Slowness off the line could be down to several things - most likely a fried clutch, maybe a bad tune, etc..

Clutch looks good, could be tuning as this was a first run. We need the GC as we live on an acreage and it's winter.
With proper gearing the larger diameter wheels can be compensated for.

Does the 50t spur stick out past the botton of the chassis?

Dunno'.. But the Muggy is very sensitive as far as gearing goes.. Basically, the chassis flexes too much, causing clutches to fry. I ended up getting this alu rail to drill into the chassis left of the tank, and it stiffened it up a bit, and helped.. With bigger tires though IMO you are asking for issues.. Stock Muggy tires are already way too big and heavy..

I saw that rail mod on the lst forum, that's a great idea. I'm going to do that this week. Even with smaller tires I wouldn't mind more gearing for where we are at. We dont need top speed and would trade it for bottom.

Btw is the LST forum gone permanently now?

ORIGINAL: evaderstbasher

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 that 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 the problem. Let me know,

Thanks!

You might just need a really thin spacer so that only the inner bearing race sits against the chassis. If the whole bearing (inner and outer) sits against the chassis it will act as a 1 solid piece of metal and drag.

I just took my steering apart to grease the bushings. While it has less drag it was just a temp solution until the bearings show up.

I have an Aftershock (now its pretty much an XXL) and have had in the past an E-Maxx and Revo. I also recently purchased D8T and love the way it handles. The Muggy I picked up drives really odd. It acted like a rear wheel drive car and on our ice and snow covered ground it was hard to accelerate straight. I also notice that the center diiff. was quite tight. Having never had a car with a center diff that I needed to adjust (the D8T was brand new and all setup by a racer who never got to use it) I had no idea that the center diff could have caused this. In my research I see that a looser center diff will cause more of a 50/50 power transfer to the front wheels and get back the proper acceleration on loose surfaces that I want. I do remember the previous owner mentioning he wanted it to wheelie so he put extremely thick oil in the center diff and yes it felt very tight. I'll be changing fluid when I also throw in a 50t spur. I look forward to better driving. I thought I would throw this out there in case someone else was having similar issues.

I suppose acquiring a used Muggy that needed a bit of work caused me to research and now I have come away a bit more learned on center diffs.

Thanks used Muggy for saving me money and teaching me some thing new........
