Glad to see a couple new folks coming into the mix. Have fun and always come around if you have questions or feedback to give.

Default Ryans Setup un Page 259

So I finally decided to get an account to give a feedback on RyanŽs 25/27,5 wt setup. I copied it exactly except for the #3 pistons in the rear cuz I didnŽt have any (left #4s) and the .5 mm washers in the back cuz I only had thicker ones that wouldnŽt fit.

Overall I like the setup a lot, tried it on two different outdoor tracks and it seems very stable and well predictable while giving way more steering than the standard setup without being too twitchy.
Only thing I noticed is that in tight corners the front end compresses alot at corner entry making the rearend come lose in an uncomfortable way.

Move the rear link up 1 hole. I noticed it was short and all the way down which causes a lot of camber gain in the corner. I have the same setup on my truck and will get to test it on sat.

The pistons in the back slow things down a bit differently and that's why we are running them. Its still a work in progress but glad to have the feedback.

I had to replace the diff inserts on my 2.0. I noticed the diff was not moving smoothly and "grinding" against the pinion. Just out of curiosity, what affect would this have on performance?

Extra drag on the motor and could work the center diff a little more if power is not being transfered to the rear end. Extra wear and tear on the ring and pinion gears.

Default Motors for SCTE 10 2.0

Hello,

Very new to the forums so I have tried to search for this prior to posting so if I have missed someone else already talking about this I apologize in advance of getting flamed.

I just finished the kit build and it went well but I am now putting an engine in this beast and have been purchased the Castle Mamba Monster 2.0 1/8th Scale 2650kv. Then I can use it for both racing by adjusting the 16T pinion gear up to a 20T and use a 2s or 3s lipo depending on racing or out bashing around.

However I am getting conflicting information if this setup would end up tearing apart the truck. Some say the SCTE 2.0 is overbuilt and will easily handle that setup even up to a 4s Lipo on it. Others say the 3s will cause damage by being just too much torque from that motor. So I thought I would ask the opinions of those here.

I don't have alot of other options for motors and I already own this one and can not return it now. However I don't want to destroy this nice build either.

Anyways thats my question would love to know peoples opinions and Thanks in advance.

The truck will have no problem with that motor on 2s or 3S.
