16T is likely going to be about perfect. I run a 15T in my heavier 10SC and it doesn't even get very warm. With the 15T it's ballistic fast on our small indoor track.

The CVDs are the same. I know either both, or at least the rear center drive shafts isn't the same length.

Hello everyone, I just installed the electronics on my TT and when I turn right the wheels go left and vice versa. Does anyone what could be wrong? Thank you.

Reverse the steering servo, there should be a switch or setting on your transmitter.

I changed the diff oils 5-5-2. Carbon fiber shock towers, center plate carbon and front center plate carbon. Everything esle is the same. Don't bother with the aluminum upgrades. Its only gonna put more weight on the truck. Lighter = faster!!!

Another upgrades was that special motor mount. Any question feel free to ask.

is it the Elite RC mount? that thing sure does look nice!

Where did you end up mounting your esc? Where I have mine now, I thought I was going to have clearence issues with the steering arm hitting the esc. So I ended playing around with serving horn and sort of reversed it if you can tell in my pic...

IDK id look into that for sure.

It wasnt the spring retainer that stripped it was the cap. The cap to shock body threads. The way you are thinking about it i would agree with you thats hard to do, but thats not what happened. I belive it was pulled aprt during one of my world famous cartwheels i perform during almost every single race.

I have beat the hell out of my TT and never had any problems with the shocks. It must of been cross threaded or something.

My front caps are blown as well. I used some Teflon tape on the threads which bought me some time with them, but they are done now.

I would imagine that many having problems with them are also those nose diving more than others. Also, I would imagine that many having problems nose diving are relatively new drivers, or just recently getting back into things such as myself.

When I had my controller over to KJ...my nose diving issues magically go away. and , as well as
