Hi folks - been following this thread for a while and I apologize if my question has already been answered.

What is the peanut gallery doing to reduce/eliminate the nose dive issue? I'm aware of people moving the battery tray forward, using heavy oils/springs to prevent the rear from chassis slapping or a short throttle blip coming off a jump.

Thanks.

From what I've read, moving your electronics rearward as possible, adding some weight to the back of the truck and a small blip of the throttle all help this minor issue.

Not sure if the Hyper 10SC springs do anything for that but I'm getting em anyways.

Granted I'm a rookie driver but for the purpose of knowing what spare parts to buy. Today drove half the day and I broke:
2 rear lower suspension arms
1 front lower suspension arm
1 rear drive shaft (it shattered perhaps because i have aluminum rear hub carriers)
1 front steering knuckle
lost 1 front steering hinge pin
rear bumper snapped off

Oh my god, thats what I call abuse! When u get better at evading the pipes youll see it holds up very well, certainly better than nearly all 1/10 buggies, you may also need a spare servo saver, thats one of my 3 breakages next to twice front steering knuckle.

That is a lot of breakage what are you doing with the truck? Mine took some nasty crashes this weekend and everything was fine. We also had a turn out of 12 trucks and I only know of 1 that broke. I felt the truck was very durable.

Anyone that breaks that much stuff in one day needs to look at how they are driving or maybe it was below zero. Either way I've never heard of any rig breaking that much in a half day of driving.

Hey guys i thought I would link this to you and see if we can get Jang to do a review on the 10TT. I thought it would be cool to get him to compare the SCT and ezrun systems in it.
Check it out and post up..

Here's my Hyper 10TT. I'm running a Novak SC 550 system in it on 2s. It's steered with a Futaba S9551 low profile servo and is controlled with a DX3s and SR3100 RX. It has JC Goosebumps on Ofna Dish wheels.
