Cool!! I must have missed it!!! I had the STRC spur as a back up, and yesterday while redoing the diffs to get it ready for racing, I noticed that the center diff was very difficult to turn by hand, after talking to G_Word he told me the problem was that when the bearing is put on the spur gear, and then installed the diff cup it's way to tight, when I replaced the spur, the diff was smooth as butter!!!! The hole in the stock spur is a tad too small, causing the diff cup to bind a little......

I replaced the stock steering rack bushings with 5 x 8 x 2.5mm bearings.

Noticed way back at the beginning of this thread that some people were having trouble with the rod ends popping off. I found this while on Nitro House's web site.

Nice....I like the battery tray...I am gonna get something similar to this.

In my Hyper Mini STe, when the chassis would slap hard it would wrinkle up my soft packs that were sitting in the stock battery box. Had to throw 2 away because I was afraid they would short out on me.

you can also get the traxxas 6mm hollow balls and get longer screws with washes. on the rear hubs i put longer bolts through the links so i can put a bolt on the other side so i don't have to worry about thread lock.

RTR's are in and of course they are the same as the rollers but with radio and electric gear, I think we will see more TT rollers in about 2 1/2 more weeks.

14622 is the part number.

I started my TT out with Kortz's ride height and droop setup for the SC10 from nitrohouse.
Since then I've added about 2-3 mm all-round in ride height and not touched the droop.

It is really planted on my local indoor carpet off road track running stock oils and tires. The track is lumpy and has a couple of reasonably sized jumps.

Next is going up a bit in shock oil weight as the rear tends to slap a little which I'd like to stop.

Cheers Matt
