Page 163 and we are still complaining about the same BS.... this truck dominates even for a rooking in the game like me! Hey TLR great job love the truck and the minor issue did nothing to stop me from building and racing!!!!

Now if we start talking tuning options that would be nice... If anyone is running outdoors with big jumps let me know what kinda weights you are using in your shocks? I ran the AE 2 hole shock limiters and ran 35 in the front and 32.5 in the rear stopped alot of the bottoming out on the big jumps...anyone using any of the race springs?

I was just thinking the same thing. How about when someone makes a setup change and they really like it, they post what they did. I run on a med size dirt clay mix track. I had the upper rear camber link in the stock position and couldn't get the truck to rotate off power around the tight turns. Moved it to A-1 and boy what a difference.

ill have to try that its funny because turning right was on point turning left to alot more effort couldnt understand why this was happening... i moved my lower front shock to the middle hole made a good difference on landings, but i lost some of the tight turning....

TLR and JConcepts Factory Driver, Chris Viesins took 2nd place in Open Pro4 this weekend at Psycho Nitro Blast VI, in Georgia!

He was running a box stock SCTE 2.0, running a slightly altered stock/factory setup.

All weekend long, he was dialed.. Good job Chris!

Mybe its an actual steering issue or could be a setup issue. Did you double check that you have your steering horn at 90 degrees to your servo when the wheels are centered? Also maybe check to see if you have full travel both direction, usually until the servo buzzes and then back it if off 2-3 points. And finally double check that the steering tie rods are equal length.

The fastest guys probably will not switch over since they are already at the top, until they start getting beat by average drivers.

Just a correction. Don't adjust EPA with servo buzz, but look for maximum throw. Especially the Savox servos start buzzing early and you don't use all possible linkage travel.

Just reread your post and you basically said the same thing.

Yeah, if they already have a dialed truck that is killing it, I doubt that they will be switching over yet. If the pack starts catching up, time to start working on the 2.0

Make sure your wheels on your truck as well.
