Thanks man, I'll give the suspension a rework....

Thanks man, I'll give the suspension a rework. Maybe detuning the motor might help stability.

Awful oversteer, HPI Blitz

I recently bought a upgraded HPI Blitz 2wd second hand. I went with my kid to the local RC track the other day for a run and found the truck was a real pig to control. Much worse than my sons slow...

RE: OFNA Buggys

I'd take a Hyper 7 over a Picco, more metal, stronger parts and better part support. Not heard of anyone breaking their shocks.
Its been around for ages because its good and buggies have not...

RE: King Motors Baja Review with pictures

That may work but as you said its engaging, the lights going off so reversing it probably won't do much, try it anyway. It might just be a lemon. My 1/8 had a defective failsafe years ago, spent ages...

RE: Exhaust pipe for Baja, not loud

The Afterburner is small and fairly quiet, bit pricey tho. Also heard theb Rd Logics pipe is good.

RE: King Motors Baja Review with pictures

They are only 5kg heavier than the stock Baja, not that much in the long scheme of things.. Heard KM engines are not that crash hot but heard no major issues with the new models drive trains.

RE: King Motors Baja Review with pictures

I'd stay away, KM are good but their drive trains are only averege, the massive weight increase of those all alloy things would put a huge strain on the internal gears/diff. Picked one up at the...
