    Vintage Nitro Buggy Identification (Help Needed)

    I bought this today at a swap meet because it is interesting and in really good shape for something I assume was made in the 1970s. Can anyone help me identify the brand and model? There are no markings on it that I can find. The tub is aluminum as are the suspension components, transmission...

    Is it My Ball Diff?

    Trying to diagnose if my ball diff is barking at me, or if its something else. When jumping my RC10B6.2d I hear a quick little "chirp" when hitting a jump or landing from a jump (quick torque changes), however it does not make any noises when accelerating on level ground or when I do the "pin...

    Tamiya Off Road Buggies & Brushless motors?

    So this is probably a very noob question. But every time I see anyone with Tamiya buggies, they are always brushed. Why is this? Are Tamiya buggies unsuited for the power of a powerful brushless system? Also, I don't do organised racing, because another thought I had could be that they are...

    Need help/advice

    I’m pretty new to RC cars. I played with them as a kid but they were just like the ones you get at Walmart. My 9 year old has shown interest in the hobby so I’m for sure going to support that. We’ve looked at different types and he really likes buggies. I’m looking for something we could both...

    Some burning questions about upgrading shocks

    Hi everyone. I've done my best to find this bit of information but have came up empty. I have a HPI Trophy 3.5 and parts are becoming rare to nonexistent after they discontinued the buggy. Here's my questions Do shocks have a standard size for the mounting holes or will they only fit specific...

    Fuel Tank Modification

    I have a couple of Exceed 1/10 Nitro Buggies. I was wondering if anyone has ever come across or invented a gas tank lid that you could fill quickly like a one-way valve? I see that they make pressure guns to "inject" the fuel fast, but you still have to get to the lid and open it, from what I...

    TLR 22-4 Ball vs. Gear Differentials

    Hey all, I believe the losi 22-4 1.0 is ball differentials in the front and rear, and the 2.0 switched over to gear differentials in the front and rear, correct me if I'm wrong. I read online that ball differentials have less play, and are generally better although require more maintenance as...
