box stock is a great feel...let me know how it feels with 1-5-1
what about 1-3-1?

I'm currently running 5-7-3 (because that's what I had) but am going to switch to 3-7-1 to get more low speed steering (hopefully).

The ackerman goes as it should, on top, trust me it works! You can grind on the diff case a bit if you want to but I didn't do that, plenty of throw for me...

thank you for any answers
ok sorry back to this
yall said that there is no more modding necessary but why does the bellcrank hit the diffcase. and yes i know about the steering mod posted here many times. the plastic bellcrank and aluminum both are same size but when turned left the right side (passenger) hits the diff case.
and also it may be that my strc ackerman is not complete flush but the ackerman hits the left side top plate (strc aluminum as well)???????

That was this past sunday. I was the only one that showed up with the truck. Ran it in Sportsman.

As for that trophy night, I believe that was a LOSI 10T converted to electric. I was there as well. But my electronics was acting up. MM Pro. Go figure.

Whats the best motor for these trucks? I plan on running a MMP.

Can we run a 540 can Mod motor? or do you need a 550 to keep up? Whats the advantage of running a 550 over a 540?

I have a 5700kv Castle Sidewinder setup i ran in my Stadium truck that was WAY to much power. Would that work in the TT?

Default Stock wheels durability?

How are the stock wheels holding up?

I got some tires and want to mount them...the Ofna have a good price of $14for 4...but how are the holding up to the power and abuse?

I have an E-Firestorm and noticed thay have the same offset....HPI has a bunch of wheels that will work...dish, spoke etc. etc. but they are a little more $8 to $15 for 2 wheels.

Anyone have any good or bad experiences.

Thanks

The stock wheels have been solid for me. I have seen some get cracked, but mostly from bangin offa the pipes n walls, etc. The only real - on the TT is the stock foams.
