I recently bought the hip d8s an went to the track behind hobby town I've had other rc cars before but they were the ones u found at ur local Walmart but any ways after having it for a full month I decided time to hit the track nobody was there an I was kinda glad due to the fact I was learning to drive that courts an get more familiar with the track but after I ran it around for a few laps I seen they buggy had great potential but then I made that jump on the last turn before the straight away an broke my front suspension block I was very upset but I know its something that happens but if there's any one out there that can give me better advice on how to Set my suspension up for jumps I'm all ears

its best to just bring it out to the track for a race. Their are several of us who are well versed in the HB D8 line of vehicles.

i have some extra parts but dont know what you mean by suspesion block. i live really close to the track as well so if you post up in this thread you are going to be there i could posibly get over there and lend a tuning hand. i work night shift though so it would have to be during the weekend or around noonish weekday. :D
