Thanks Ryan for Dakotah´s Setup (Page 151). It is really helpful because I am participating in the Euro Offroad Series in Germany (high grip astro track) with my SCTE 2.0.

But I am not sure why Dakotah use the hardest front springs in the back. Does it make sense for the Track of the Euro Offroad Series?

There is a Euro Offroad Series setup for the SCTE 1.0 from Dustin which is much different.

Which setup would you prefer?

Cheers,
Sebastian

I would likely start off with what Dustin ran as astro and carpet are a beast unto their own. I would take copies of both setups though just to have some ideas.

Way effect does loosening the servo saver have on steering? I currently have it set to the stock set up.

If it is too loose it can make steering lazy and wheels will not turn under load.

That sounds about right if its to lose. Also if you have to tight depending on the setup and grip of the track surface from what ive noticed it can make your steering twichy ive noticed.

My is not locked its about 3mm or less off the chassis.

Using the 810 parts is an easy conversion though it will widen your track width and your tires may rub on the body.

this is very true...when i did my 810 to SCTE conversion the tires stuck out but either way if he is using paddles he is gonna have rubbing issues with 1/8 tires anyways unless he has the suspension locked up(STIFF)

Off topic question but related to the SCTE 2.0 truck..

Can this truck take a beating? I dont race or plan to race at all, i just like something of nicer quality then my traxxas. I was thinking of taking my brushless e-revo electric components and slapping it on the 2.0. I think it will be able to withstand the power since the SCTE is a buggy base layout.. but i would like to hear from you guys first..

Thanks

I set out to bring some bling to that part which is the goal with out sacrificing flex.Again don't know if I will sell them or not as i would contract someone to build them for me, and the cost may be too high.
