Thanks Casper. I will try that tonight.

Just called nitrohouse and they discontinued the 1.0 bump chassis and are working on a 2.0 chassis with different braces and a receiver box.

I'll be looking at that with great interest.

Can someone explain to me how you can run the 22 pistons with 2 holes and thicker fluid over the stock pistons with thinner fluid will work? Wouldn't this create a lot more pack?

Will the battery strap from the 2.0 fit the 1.0 ?

Build with no rebound (shock all the way up). Close screw and pump shock multiple times in an upward position. Open screw when shaft is extended and slowly push in. Usually some oil still seeps out. Close screw.

I'd be happy with just a Bump version of the stock 2.0 without any bells and whistles. The original Bump held up great and I don't need a receiver box.

Not unless you modify the tray. Would have to add the 2.0 standoffs to the 1.0 tray. I have both and like Velcro better.

Tried the new dunford setup minus the shock pistons and oils(running the 2 hole still) on a dusty medium traction track. Overall im undecided if i like it. I do like the extra acceleration in a straight line. I liked the extra droop in the front as it made the front come down quicker in the air to get the front tires to land on the down side of every jump. The extra kick-up in combo with the extra droop did put more weight to the rear as the front end raise up under acceleration. Black springs and hubs all the way back did make the car more stable(all ready did this prior to the setup change). Car seemed like it had almost too much on power steering. More steering overall, just need a slight more stability so i can stand on it even more when needed without worrying about washout in a turn. Wish i had some lap time comparisons. Not sure if 5 in the center would help to get a little more stability. The car is almost there keep up dunford and casper!

It worked! I did this last night and worked great. Thanks again.

Ryan suggests to double check your toe out in the front. Push the front tires in to take out steering slop when adjusting toe out on the front end. A little more toe out will make the truck more stable on exit. If your track is bumpy or loose 5K in the center would calm it down but take away a little of that forward bite you like. The other setup changes effect the forward drive as well so it should not be a dramatic change in foward bite.

Thanks or the feedback, still working on it a bit. I can tell you that when Casper changed to the 4 hole setup, it locked his truck in a bit better. It does not land as good as the 2 hole setup with the shocks though. We are still messing around to find a balance there.
