Just after peoples opinions does the captured hinge pin set of the TQ/EC slow the truggy down, I have ordered the parts to convert but don't want to start mix and matching parts from other brands to get captured hinge pins.
Has anyone done the conversion and if so what was your thoughts....
Yes in my opinion is does slow the truggy down.
For what its worth I dont like e clips either but have tapped the composite holder and added a grub screw for back up!
We still have some more work to do to establish if this is the case but last weekend my son bumped from 6th in the C final to win the A main.
Standard Truggy as first run in the UK 0ver 12 months ago taking 3rd place at neo. We have added ali rear uprights and front steering knuckles purely because we had them.
It has done a complete National truggy series (engine problems causing bad results) a complete winters series (large track big jumps) and numerous test days and not to mention many novice drivers testing it after a meeting has finished for 30 mins or so.
Its still as good as new and we still run standard shocks. They dont leak and have not been rebuilt, just cleaned! We run plastic braces.
This truggy was quicker than the truggy run by Bren Ralls who was running the ali options.
I guess I should be saying yeah buy the ali stuff so more money can be made by the manufacturer and distributer but its much better to just sell more truggies in general and more happy drivers.
I will after the weekend get time to post the set up. but to start with its 20.000 front diff 10,000 center diff and 5,000 rear diff. We did run 2,000 in the rear for the final but that was because it ws snowing and grip was at a premium.
hey I may be wrong but thats just my 10 pennies worth! LOL
