Looks like the stock battery tray just has the side cut off so he can lay the battery down flat.

Default new toy

just got my new 10tt, wanted to let everybody know, the truggy is a blast to drive, I put a mmp with the pantom550 4.5 motor and a 14 pinon and its fast but controllable, and I even took the fan off the esc to see what happens, dont seem to get hot, This truggy seems to be the best kick for the buck.

Hey guys just wondering if anyone else here runs these things on a carpet track?
I ran my yesterday on the carpet track with stock tires and after tweaking the suspension a little i got it to handle pretty good but i still couldn't push to hard around the corners because it would traction roll to easy!

A couple of the top guys there are running the proline striker II and they seem to get them to handle well and dont seem to traction roll. They did say it took them a while to get the grip up from new! i guess running them on the road would scrub them in nicely!

if anyone else here runs on carpet do you have any recommendations for tire choice?

I was thinking of trying hard inserts with the stock tire and sanding of the outer edge of the pins, do you reckon that would work?

I (and quite a few others at the Clay Pit in Austin) am running 1 holes up front with 22.5 Losi, for the rear I run 2 hole with 32.5. Some run the 3 or 4 holes with differing weight oils. But most of us found that even with heavier oils all around that the shocks blew through their travel, specially in the front.

are there any stiffer spring out there? i run multiple STe's ( same truck just 1" shorter) and one runs a 1717 so it pretty heavy. better yet what springs work for them? as i have some lighter ones that are for racing this outdoor season and it would be nice to know.

Good info. I have 4 hole pistons in them now. I play with these for a bit then try the lower hole pistons. Thanks.

I'm running 35wt Losi all around on the stock pistons. I have the option pistons I just haven't gotten around to changing them.

I have a slightly used 10TT coming to me sometime this week and I'm trying to decide what electronics I want to run in it. I will mainly be running it on the local tracks just for fun, I'm not aware of any 10th scale 4wd truggy classes at the moment so I'm just after what would work best (without spending more than needed).

At the moment I have a complete system for 10th stadium truck I don't run at all. Its a Ezrun 60amp esc and Ezrun 9t 4300kv brushless motor. Its capable of running up to 3s and for that I have 2 5800mah 3s lipos that I would like to use for which ever setup I end up using. I'm thinking this system would be a bit on the small side for this vehicle and would more than likely run into temp problem and such.

I also have a spare Novak HV 7.5 brushless sensored motor. I was thinking of pairing this up with either a Xerun 120A-SD sensored ESC or maybe a MMP.

Then I also have a Leopard 2350kv sensorless 8th scale brushless motor that I would pair up to maybe a Ezrun 120a SC8 ESC or ???

Any ideas or suggestions on what I should use.


Also still looking for the battery tray size. The battery I have that I'd like to use is 149mm X 30mm.

well he's running 1 hole pistons up front and 2 holes pistons in the rear. So I'm guessing that makes the rear softer.

Just curious why so many people seem to think this truck isn't a good basher. It seems like it would be tougher than a 1/10 st, which is what I have now. Is the tt just not that strong compared to a 1/8 setup? I've been thinking about picking one up since they came out but I won't be doing any racing. Will the tt hold up ok?

I'm trying to control the speed at which the oil in the shock will flow through the shock piston.

We were finding that even running 40w+ up front with the 4 hole pistons that the shock would compress, then rebound too easily.

I tried running both the 3 and 2 hole, but i'd still smack the front of the chassis too easily on any landing. So I (and others where I run it) put the one holes in. Now oil only has one orifice to travel through, creating more Pack. Then it was a matter of decreasing oil weight until there became a balance of pack to movement. Moving "normally", the piston travels easily (because of the lighter oil). On a big hit, the single hole in the piston won't flow oil as easily.

More holes, heavier oil and less pack
Fewer holes, lighter oil and more pack.

Using a pick, you don't even have to completely disassemble the shock to change out the pistons.
