Default Different spur/center diff gear...

I'm running a 4.0 Reedy Sonic 550...it's too fast...I have to run this motor because my 4.5 Reedy needs rebuilt after too many laps when it was new... Haha... I'm running a 10 pinion because a nine wont match up.. Is there a bigger spur/diff gear for the 2.0?... Or do I need to modify motor mount to suit a 9 pinion?...thanks!!

I tried it like that on Sat and seems to have held up better.

My guess is people are breaking those end pieces and buying up all the extras.

What plastic piece are you guys talking about? It goes under that front triangle? I just looked at the parts explosion and don't see what you're talking about.

Also is it possible that the aluminum front triangle is already back ordered? I don't see it at all on A-Main either.

This was part of the build tips that we put out for the truck. You always want to fill the plastic before going into the metal on a torque rod style brace.

I agree, you don't need to overtighten plastic bushings. But from I am seeing, the slight angle of the rear shocks (from the tower to the arm) are causing a binding issue with the (thicker) stock bushings on compression.

The 22 bushings, which are rounded/smaller where the shock cap makes contact w/the bushing, seems to allow a more free shock.

Just what I am experiencing....

Default Need help

Alrignt im not sure if this is the right thread to post this in, but I need help. I currently am racing a scte 1.0 with the mip kit and I use 8ight shocks. Well I like the way it jumps, but I spin out on almost every corner and it just handles like crap. I'm not taking the 8ight shocks off because they r the best thing I have ever done to the truck. So my question is should I buy the 2.0, or get the Tim bump chassis? I love the way the bump looks and every one I have talked to says its amazing. Price is not a problem. I have the electronics so I only need the 2.0 or the bump chassis. I have driven multple 2.0s and they are AWESOME. I have never drove a scte with the bump chassis though. So just please help. Thanks in advance

The plastic peice we are talking about is LOSB2278 in the attached photo.

Horizon is showing them not in stock right now as well. I am assuming they may have not found a home in the wearhouse yet. Should be shipping soon I would guess. Ryan will correct me if I am wrong.

Are you using the correct tires?? The MIP kit is very good, so I don't think that is the problem. Other than bashing, I can't imagine why someone would need 8ight shocks.

Yea I'm running the same tires as 3 other racers are using (wishbones). And I have my ride height set correctly with the 8ight shocks too. Now I'm strictly a racer only with my race rc's. I never bash my race rc's.

Thanks Casper! Would you believe I took that triangle off my truck last night to replace part of the steering assembly and didn't even notice that plastic piece! It must have stayed in place when I removed the triangle and I forgot it was seperate. My steering assembly keeps loosening up after racing. I used some lock tite last night on the screws that go into the chassis. Hopefully that does the trick.

You have to play with the oil and pistons and springs to get all that right. shock settings are very important to getting the car setup and the 8ight shocks and package are setup typically for a 7-8lb car not a 5-6 lb car. So you wnat to make sure you get that right. Landing jumps means nothing if you cant get around the track. As you can tell a lot of guys with stock SCTE 2.0 handle quite well. Not saying you have to get rid of the 8ight shocks but They will add some top weight that you have to now deal with as well as find settings that work well with your lighter SCTE (lighter then an 8ight).

Alright sounds good. But I can't use the stock shocks because I put them on another scte roller my dad races with.
