I'm gonna drive on the Belgian Track ATR next week (personal training).
It's a (great!) dirt track.

any tips on which setup will suit my pred best (x10 with BB shocks) AND most of all, which tyres I should use.

Jeff is probably the best person to talk too because he runs in the states on dirt. If he doesn't answer the thread then the next best thing will be to start with niggs98's worksop setup

hesitated between this thread and the other sticky Set-Up-thread, but this one mentiones "questions" so ...

I allready annoyed Niggs with my questions about this and I will certainly give his methods a try ... but I think it would beinteresting to hear some more tricks, methods ...

How do you protect your car .. and the electronics when running on a wet or/and muddy track?
Anyone having some pictures of that?

Niggs told me he uses balloons and after putting the electric components in ballons and closing these firmly, double-side-tapes them into the car.
I was amazed this could be done.
Nigs even told me he sometimes sticks the motor in a balloon too.

(I have a probably muddy race comming up this weekend, that's why)

SO please if you have some more tips and preferable even pictures (as these explain easier for us, non-english-speaking-but-oOple-visiting earthmen) ...
thx in advance

I simply use duck tape to cover the holes on the bottom of the chassis, as well as over vents in the shell to stop mud and water getting in.

Then i just put some cotton wool around the main areas water could still get in (front shocks and rear of shell) and also around the electrics to soak up the little water that does get in.

I use blue tack aswell. I stick this over the sensor wire ends, the led's of the speed controller and the plugs for the receiver.

I use balloons and cover the body holes with electrical tape. Also velcro will be good to use all around the body to seal everything in it .

Sure its challenging to run into mud and rain but the most challenging thing is to clean your buggy afterwards

a new question.

I bought my X11 second hand and the rear shocks had longer shockshafts mounted.
I now found out one of those shockshafts is slightly bent and I would want to replace it/them.
Niggs told me he thought the ones in ly BB shocks were Aero-shockshafts ... but I can't find a shop where I could buy or order those.

So ...
does anyone know where I could buy this longer shafts or
which other longer shoclshafts I could use/order
... to replace the ones in my rear BB shocks?
