Thanks guys.
Where the steering turnbuckle attaches to the steering spindle is where the bump steer is adjusted. the hight of the ball where it attaches to the spindle is where the bump steer is adjusted. If you look at the ball that goes in the turnbuckle end there is a shoulder on one side of the ball which is what they are referencing. If it says up the shoulder on the ball goes down, if it says down the shoulder goes up. Hope that makes sense.

The ball ends have a protrusion on one side and not on the other so how you orient this ball will raise or lower the rod end.

Opposite - it refers to the ball. So ball up or ball down. Shoulder location is opposite the ball orientation. So bump up is shoulder down, etc

Edit - Casper beat me. The old 1.0 setup sheet has a picture of the orientation.

Thanks guys! Thats the way I had it, just make sure. I wasn't sure if you adjusted the bell crank side. So just spindle side and bump steer up means spacer down, (the ball as high as possible). Thanks

Well i had a few mins so i took some advice and it seemed to work out so the QTEQ connections were flipped on the motor and i shortened up the motor wires by about 3-4"

No ESC shelf, No RX box, No Rockguard by the ESC or Servo?

Was that stuff really not included to shave 50 grams?

Makes sense to me. Throw a piece of lexan on the side pod if you'd like to protect the receiver. Well worth the weight savings.

got to run my 2.0 on the track today and i must say it is faster then the 1.0. The truck is alot more nimble, reacts quicker to stearing inputs, and alot smother on the track. Overall a true race truck. Well done TLR!

Well, since everyone pretty much was removing them from the 1.0, Losi probably figured they weren't needed. Can't please everyone.
