Are you running full droop in the rear? Does it only happen when flat landing a big jump or all jumps?

Casper or Ryan, have you guys played with adjusting the inner hinge pin height on the front? Like raising it or lowering it equally front and rear. I know it will change the roll center, but curious about the change in drive shaft plunge.

I have a question when drilling pistons for the truck. To duplicate a #3 piston should you use the #58 bit or the #59 bit. It is suppose to be 1.05mm but I can not find a bit that size and want delron pistons?

You can get individual metric drill bits from McMaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com) or ENCO (www.use-enco.com) or a kit with an array of metric drill bit sizes by GMK supply from A-Main.

The kit is cheaper if you want lots of different bit sizes.

has anyone had any problems with the diff screws winding out i am using the HPI screws and just found the front diff had leaked all the oil out. on inspection i found that i could get 1/2 - 3/4 turn -in- on the screws. i also found this happened to my center like straight away but tightened them before it leaked to much. and yes i did screw them in tight

if they are coming lose i think the housings are shot. its a metal screw going into a plastic housing, eventually they will wear out if you keep swapping fluids.

I do a diff fluid change every 2 weeks, but i'm also running the truck 3-4 times a week (2 race days and 1-2 long practice sessions).

When the cups are built the 1st time they may not seat fully with the cap.The 2nd build will fix this.On a new cup thread the screws by themselves with out the cap and when you build it up it will set proper!!!
Sand the diff cup a little,concrete works LOL as well after threading the holes
.....Cheers!!!.......

Go to casper-rc.com and it is under the TLR setups. It is the "latest Dunford SCTE 2.0 setup" dated 7/1/13. This setup is AWESOME!!!
