Still running a box stock setup? LOTS of toe out? If you are, you may want to reduce it to somewhere between .5 and 0. Watch your knuckles as you go from full lock to full lock. If the ball's flanges are digging into your knuckles at full lock, IMHO, the added stress at full lock on the plastic is helping the things bust. I haven't broken one since I decreased it.

The thing also like a washer or so under the outer ball on the steering link.

I run on a really tight track, requires all the steering I can get, when I swapped the stock ackerman, I took a little toe out from the mix..... Just for reference, I run 3 toe out in my 8T 2.0 (Adam Drake Set Up).....

I'm trying to get more off power steering out of my tt. Running 3-5-1 in the diffs front to rear, 35wt Losi Oil in all 4 shocks, stock orange springs around, upgraded ackerman bar, still no where near enough off power steering. Can't dial in any more drag brake as I lose too much time in the air adjusting attitude, got it with just the right nose down now. Any ideas how to get more off power steering? On power is good, just so little travel on the steering.

Sorry, forgot to mention I did that already! Moved the rear shocks into the upper holes on the tower but still have the ride height 2mm higher in the rear. Can anyone save me some time and tell me how many holes are in the stock shock pistons? Cant remember......

also try moving your rear shocks to the inside hole on the tower and the outside hole on the arms will help it rotate.

I will give you guys a little set-up help...I went thru all the same things as posted to get it to turn in....

The main problem with these is the lack of front weight, and weight transfer. To fix this, lay the battery down, and re drill all the holes so its nearly touching the front steering post. Mine almost touches it. Now grind the front diff case for max turning radius. I also run a custom V-shaped steering link for more ackerman, but I don't have too many extras, but the rest I posted should help a ton

For the shocks, drill the rears out to .048" in all four holes and put 40wt oil in them. For the fronts drill two holes to .048 and two to .062" and put 50wt oil in them.

The sway bar is needed, but the stock .080" one is too stiff. Get some .060" wire and bend a lighter one and install it straight up on the links...Truggy will now drive as good as gets. All the other set-up options on these squirrley little trucks really doesn't do enough to help gain the kind of racing feel they need at the speeds they go.

Oooh and my diff fluid currently is 5/7/2, but going to grease in all of them soon because I am tired of replacing oil. I have not driven a better handling one than mine, so I would go this rout if your serious about racing. Mine has spent some time on the scales and gone thru a bunch of changes, but this works.
