So, I've just built my ST and raced the other day with great results but was a bit perplexed as I wasn't able to get great steering throw without the wheels rubbing on the front side of the suspension arm and camber link ball cup as well. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem and come up with a solution. I'm not that keen on dremelling the arm for fear of weakening it but the wheel is rubbing so bad that it is creating a groove on its own.

Are you not getting full throw when the truck is at full droop? At ride height it should cycle just fine, but it can rub a bit with the front arms at full droop. Technically this shouldn't matter- if you're at full droop the truck is most likely in the air and full lock doesn't do much there. But, I dremeled the arms on my SC with no breakages since it was new back in August. I wouldn't recommend taking half the material away, but a little bit for clearance if it bothers you won't hurt- the arms are pretty darn stout.

I'm not getting full throw at every point of the suspension compression. I have my EPA dialled down to where it just starts to rub and the inside wheel still has more travel to go if it wasn't for the outside tire rubbing. A bit of a strange design. I definitely feel the truck could gain more steering if it wasn't for this. Otherwise the truck is killer. It's in mm4 for indoor carpet right now and man does it feel balanced. I guess it's time to break out the dremel.

You guys were right I love my shocks on my dex408 never had a problem after taking everything apart I realized I didn't have the rubber shock stoppers on them "dumb" but after doing this I'm getting great results also my piston had backed out so I put a little thread lock on the screws and after 2 weeks of running my truck is dialed
Thanks

*New* DE Racing Trinidad Yellow Wheels $5 a pair plus shipping. I have over 25 new pairs. I sold my truck and bought too much wheels. I'll cover shipping if you buy 4 pairs.

I have been reading some stuff, and It seems that alot of people run the MM set up on high grip tracks. But does anyone run a MM set up on a Loomy/dusty track?

I run the DEX210 in the summer on dusty/loomy tracks and in MM the rear end just refuses to stay when accelerating out of corners and the car has too much steering which does nothing to prevent the rear from coming around. The extra weight behind the rear wheels really helps balance the drivability of the car. I'm sure the same would translate to the truck as most are using roughly the same setup as their cars.

I saw some posts earlier about different bodies. Has anybody tried the Proline bodies for the Losi or Associated? Thanks.

I tried a friend's ProLine BullDog for the T4 and I couldn't get it to fit. I haven't physically tried the one for the 22T, but it doens't look promising. I'm hopeing PL will come out with the BullDog for the DEST

just picked up a used desc210...what would your recommendations be for gearing a 17.5 with a 87 spur ?

Any recommends on a good clay setup.. nice size track, med-high bite. Already have tires. But you guys running a front weight or no? Shorty or long lipo? Just snagged a new kit, only upgrading the FR and RR hangers to alum the rest plan on running stock. Maybe throw a shortened desc210 bumper on the front for a skid & strength.

Thx!

Remove the maybe from there - Do it. The bumper set is like $5 and it will save your chassis. Don't wait to put it on.
