Longer chassis, bunch of other stuff, much better than the RTR.

Do you guys think I can get 200 shipped for my ST-1 RTR with a starter box?
Definitely. I would have bought it from you for $250. lol. To late though. Id start at $250.

mmmmmm, thats a bit high for me. IM in more the 100 -150 (ish give or take) range. I do like the Futaba 3 ch FM radio. The synth radio's are nice but the reciever's cost as much as a normal 2.4 [>:] decisions decisions

Humm well im waiting for my BCE chasis to come and that should make up the longer body, i have up graded the carbin fiber parts. lighter pilow balls with lunsford turn buckles, steering mod, and big bores anything else i should do besides engine? Oh yeah 200 thats a really great price! do you race buggies at all? I have some bran new tires never used may be we can work something out for the starter box?
I only race buggies now, that is why I am getting rid of the ST-1.

Sorry I need to keep it together, there is no pullstart on the ST-1 and I know I will lose potential buyers if they cannot start the engine.

Thanks eric, ill start at 250 with a bunch of spares I have and a nice starter box, should sell pretty fast. Has a nice spider man proline body (for the mugen, direct fit) as well.

$150 can get you a [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1_61_119/products_id/6153]Spektrum 2.0[/link] or [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1_61_119/products_id/16275]Airtronics MX-3[/link] It's nice not having to worry about people running on your same frequency with a 2.4ghz.

Shoot, I already ordered the shoes hoping they will work with the stock setup. No way I can make them work? Which clutch nut and springs do I need to get for the dynamite clutch shoes (using stock clutch bell)?

you can use the stock clutch bell. i forgot if i used the stock clutch nut, it might be. i'll check it out and get back to you, it'll be easy for me to check cuz i have the motor out of the truggy. i'm also using the stock flywheel too.

edit:
okay just checked it out, yep it is the stock clutch nut on there. i even checked amainhobbies.com just to make sure it was the stock one, so you're good to go. what clutch springs are you going to use? i use mugen 1.1mm springs.

Here's some pictures of my truck with my new custom painted body by Kiefer Designs. He did an awesome job! The body didn't quite fit right but it's just for show anyway. It was a JC concept, mbX5T illusion body and I really suck at cutting. But i hope you like it!

try 2 turns out for high and 6 turns out for low. These are good running settings IMO. It is actually 3 turns out for high and 6 1/2 for low.

60wt all the way around. sometimes i run 40wt front and 60wt back. but so far 60wt all around is working with the blue springs in back and gray in front. eventually going to put blue springs up front too.

Guys, just have to say; I did the Saxton steering mod and ground out the font of the knuckles for sharper steering and this truck has absolutely amazing steering now. I measured the diameter of the low speed circles I can do in the dirt and they're under 1.5 feet!!!! That's just insane. Will outsteer an 8ight-T/RC8T/X2 now! lol. Since steering was the biggest downfall of this truck, I think it was def. worth while.

Next up will be dropping in either the LRP .28 Spec 3 or OS .30. Dunno why I want more power however. Today on the grass in the park with Bow Ties I was PULLING WHEELIES WITH THE STOCK MOTOR!!! lmao. I do have the 2035 pipe though. Was amazing. Did a wheelie over 200 feet. I can't wait for even more power, lol.

Running 7,20,5 for bashing, 50wt all around. Definately a happy camper with this ST-1.

haha well not quite. A couple times it was because I hit a smaller bump and I could pull the wheels off the ground. I hit a 1" bump at 1/4 throttle then mashed it, and thats how I did the 200' wheelie, lol. But usually I found that if I was cruising about 5-8mph and I mashed the throttle, I could pull the wheels off the ground on the grass. Traction is the key though.

nice, anyone got a "favorite tire" here, im in a bind between bowties and crimefighters [>:], i mostly run on:
"dirty" grass (thin grass with lots of dead grass with loose soil underneath)
hard packed track (dry)
"hard packed" soil which flakes REAL easy under the car (forms that pain in the rear dust [:'(][:'(])
thats about it

When im driving, is a "thin" stream of blue smoke fine, i just don't want to overlean the engine and then pink, it breaks ________ [&:]

Are you just nashing or competitive racing? It would be hard to justify 80 bucks on tires if you aren't racing.
