I absolutely love the Goosebumps on my truck , however I am finding the rear is feeling a bit loose in comparison on a hard pack surface with a bit of dust on it compared to a few other guys running other tires.

Would a firmer insert help at all here or more rear toe? Any help would be nice.

Wow, the paint looks great!

You could go to a longer camber link to make more rear bite as I know the Goose Bumps provide a lot of steering. The softer insert should actually provide a little more traction.

Already done the longer links, added 2 degrees anti squat , stood up the rear shocks (outer hole) and 1000 diff oil.

Can we get a spy shot of the JConcepts SC10 body?

A short wheelbase setting should lock the rear in a little more. Also, maybe try filling your diff 1/2 with AE black grease. Are you running lipos? If so try 1/2 oz of lead behind the battery. Lastly, try a gold front spring with the kit setup shock positions.

Cool pic and nice looking body by the way!

I do run Lipo, I am taking the current motor out 6900 and trying the 4600 kv. I have 2oz of lead behind battery 1 oz in front skid plate and 1oz either side of battery tie downs. Blue springs up front stock settings 30 wt oil and 30 degree GT2 c hubs, lots of front bite and tons of turn in. Rear end is squirrely, using 25 wt oil rear shocks , green springs arms level rear and front with body on.

Try setting your ride-height to arms level front and bones level in the rear. Arms level in the rear is too high and will make the truck squirrely.

Another thing to consider running Goose Bumps on SCT is that the front is probably gripping harder now as well. You might have to take a little steering out of the truck to find that balance that you are looking for.

I saw that the BJ4WE is back and listed on your site, but are you still planning to offer the WE upgrade kit? I could use some spares and this package would make it that much better. Saves me from having to buy individual parts.
