Hey Tekno crew... I'm sure you did some testing on left right balance with different sized batteries. What size/weight batteries give the best balance?
I'm currently running the Reedy wolfpack 3700 mah. Lrp ix8 with a dynamic 8 motor.

I'm really not a fan of the cab forward bodies, but I'm happy that people will have a choice.

Personally I really like the stock Tekno body. It's unique, functional, and looks great.

Default Swaybars

Can someone please explain the effect of swaybars on rear traction? I've gotten the suspension where I like it for the bumps and jumps. Removed antisquat, max rear toe, and rear camber at 1*. Also removed rear brace. Car is more planted than stock. I purchased all of the swaybars and want to tune with them now. Seems the threads I'm reading have opposing info, so I'm asking you guys. Thanks in advance.

The cab forward design is an acquired taste. I had one on my 8ight and it handled low traction tracks better.

I'll leave the sway bars for some of these suspension guys, They do a great job at explaining even if they do hate typing
I like the Finnisher but the Tekno body is slick. Tekno should do an SCT body...

From what I have seen they use the same description for all of the Finnisher bodies.

Wow!! That body is rather fugly! Where are the air inlets? I see a bunch out air outlets. Reminds me of a 1980's haircut where people used to get steps carved into the sides of their hair, lol!
