The other setup changes effect the forward drive as well so it should not be a dramatic change in foward bite.
I will double check my toe out as well as try 5K in the center at some point.

Ya i definitely like how the 2 hole pistons land jumps.

Have you guys tried a 4 hole piston with 2 smaller holes and 2 bigger? Seems like it will might give more progression to the pack and give the best of both. Or maybe a 3 hole setup.

We have been talking about both actually and trying to figure out what to test.

Cool. I just ordered the 4x 1.1/1.5 pistons from avid to try this weekend. I have a spare set of shocks and will try 3 hole. Any suggestions on what size holes I should try?

We have a few things we want to try and see how it works. It is just getting the track time to play with them right now. It will probbly be unitl later this month before we get enough time to gather the data on more testing but things along those lines will be tested.

It cracks me up that you guys can't accuratly adjust front toe because of all the slop. I'm sure a tlr part will eventually take care of that.

The issue is pistons and oil have to be worked out together so hard to tell what is going be best and how it will all play together. I would imagine the 1.1/1.5 will not be enough damping as the 1.5 2 holes are already much larger then what we are currently playing with in a 2 hole ~1.3. So plan to go up in oil a bit.

We are running a bit of toe out and sometimes it looks like more than it really is. There is not that much slop in the system with the 2.0 and HA balls there as there is with any car there is play in the system.

Most cars do. The SC10 2wd is notorious for front end slop. My T4.1 has the same thing.

You're just pissed off that you were faster with your losi than you are with your tekno. The only thing you have to bitch about is the slop on the losi. How about the crappy stock setup on the tekno?
I'm sure the added weight of the tekno suits your driving style better since you like to punt guys from the rear.
When you're a factor at any track other than norcal then you can talk. Now you can go back to the tekno thread and swing on those nuts.

Calm down. We don't need to start this all over again.

It is common for folks to go into other threads to see what the competition is doing and all. I don't see the necessity for making comments as he did but oh well, it happens. There is some slop in our steering, but there is some slop in most parts of any off road car. Not saying we don't work to make it better as we have with the 2.0, but slop or no slop, the 2.0 is the fastest 4wSC out there right now in many of the different conditions.

3's are 1.05mm holes. A #58 would be the closest at 1.067mm and the smallest hole we make for the 22 is a 57 which is a 1.092mm which is closer to a #4.
