Hey guys I'm curious what you all are running for steering epa? I made a custom rack I used for a long time so I could use 100-120 spa without the wheels locking out after stripping 2 servos in a week or two. Now I want to try to use the factory shaped rack since I bought the truck and don't think my custom rack is going to hold up with the bigger tires of the truck. I'm down to around 60-70 on my buggy with the factory rack which makes the steering a little twitchy and I believe caused my servo issues. I don't want to strip any more servos. It seems everyone else figured this issue out so hopefully you guys have some suggestions, thanks.

Do u have to make this piston or can u buy them made. I've only found the1.0x4

The piston parts tree should come with blanks as well. The last couple times I bought them I remember getting blanks.
But Tresrey also offers them and I hear they are really good.
Here is the link.

Finally broke a gearbox camber mount. What a pain to change! I have the tresrey cf camber mount but never put it on.

Comes with 4 blanks. A buck or two cheaper than Tresrey. I use these.

Earlier versions if this part are all drilled but it was changed at some point in time.

There are two versions that have the same part number. 330157. Just look at them when you're at the track dude

I ordered them from Tower and A Main. Both came with blanks. I've also seen the set that's all drilled though. Thrown in with a used buggy.

Has anyone tried a gear diff in these? I also need to find an aluminum steering horn and need suggestions on what to get. I am having a problem going sideways on all my 210's (buggy, truck, and sc.) Is there a way to lesson this? It goes from worse with the buggy to not so bad with the sc.

I have a geardiff in mine and like it. However, I don't think that will fix your problem with going sideways.

If you're going sideways (spinning out in middle of turns?), i'd look at your tires, then your springs, then your camber/link settings.

I run a gear diff in both my dex and desc. You'll get a ton of advice in here and most of it doesn't work. Did you try moving the battery as far back as possible?

On my desc I run mm4 so I need weight in the back. On my dex I run rm3 and I use a shorty pack pushed all the way forward.

Try simple things first, like moving the battery around, ride height, tires, etc.

im using the sc10 gear diff with 1000cts ae oil and i went to a stiffer front spring and added a little rear droop to fix my sideways problem it was more of during braking or a sharp turn my front would dig then kick the rear out lifting the inside tire all is good now tho i couldnt be happier next step is a longer chassis im still using the kit alum
