Casper - did you run with the 2 hole pistons or the stock pistons? What weight oils were you at?

Looks like the kit comes with Orange Rear and Blue Front springs?

Is it just the pics or did you guys change the color of the anodization of the chassis and torque rods?

Height I can deal with with longer screws, like you said.

I need to know what is the max lenght and width the 'tray' will accomodate. I see that each side of the battery tray has 3 holes to adjust for various lenghts. Thanks.

If you have done every upgrade to your truck minus the new chassis layout, THEN it makes sense to do upgrade. I myself just finished all the upgrades then installed an MIP kit. I love it and I still look at the MIP kit as an optional kit/upgrade for the 2.0.. Pretty similar to the new layout of the TLR truck. But yet you still get the aluminum mounting hardware, bipass system, different towers, springs. It is a new/different truck with that kit installed. I personally might buy the individual parts to try the new chassis.. I WISH I could ask something and get some input instead of watching everyone fight... and wasting time reading it! lol

Anyways, thanks for the listing of 6 digit part numbers to do the upgrade, @ryan or casper. If one was to do an upgrade to their truck are their any new screws or nuts needed??? I'm also going to order the Titanium screw kit, should all the screws I need be in there?

Yes 2 hole 55's 32.5 front and 30 rear is where both Ryan and I ended the night. I started out 30/27.5 and it was too light.

Yes kit comes with blue front and orange rear springs.

Color of the anodize looks the same to me. Might be lighting in the photos.

I always got a lot (too much) squat with the 1.0 running mismatched oil F/R - so i went to same oil F/R. Accelerating really pulled a lot of weigh off the front and made the truck squirmy - this killed me at SC Nats until I rebuilt the shocks with even oil.

I know lots of guys run heavier front oil - do you find you have to find other ways to tune out squat?

That's is as good a stress test as you can get. If you can take a head on collision from a Slash, you are in good shape.

We are running 3 degrees of anti squat in the rear right now. I dont think its squating too much. This is what I ran at the SC nats as well.

I take it back. The hole adjustment is to move the tray front and back, since the top brace does not shrink or strech. Right?

Any chance of getting those dimensions?

I'll give 3 a try. I have it at 2 and hadn't seen any setup sheets with it at 3 so I left it. Thanks!
