I also replaced the ackerman arm and bushings, that seemed to tighten up most of the slop in the steering. The ball joints can wear also. The 1.0 had terrible aluminum ball joints were the 2.0 had hardened balls and they last a very long time.
Yeah i was thinking about trying that - it seems to have more pull on one side over the other.... I have the 2.0 so it seems a bit soon for them to be worn down but you can see it moving when playing with the wheel .... Im thinking about upgrade to a beefier losi 8 3.0 set of turnbuckles......

Here are 2 clips from the A-Main from the first race with my SCTE 2.0.
I was actually faster with the fast laps than with my old car, but not as consistent... the car was not so easy to drive/suspension was to soft... and of course I'm not a good enough driver yet

Default dunfords 5-22-13 setup

Hi all
With this set up it calls for the Rear hex spaced out .5 is this the correct shim? /Losi-5mm-6mm-Metric-Shim-Set

I saw awhile back tlr came out with new rear .5 hexes are these used instead if these shims?

Also is the bump steer washer in it 2mm or .2?


Thanks
Ken

The diffs arent a problem if you are experienced.
we counted the parts as we built and i think it was about 725 pieces total counting nuts bolts set screws body and everything.
I spread it out over a few weeks as i was teaching a total noob but I'm sure it could be done in an evening but a LONG evening mind you.
Pre order the shock caps. You CAN use the kit ones but you need to crank on them with pliers to get them on..
Does anyone know what he is talking about in reference to the caps? Is there something wrong with the kit shock caps? I FINALLY got in to 4wd SCT (I held out for the longest time due to loyalty to 2wd). My 2.0 shows up tomorrow and I want to build it this weekend. I have tried looking at all the build tips threads but none work / pics don't load anymore.
Are the caps not tapped/threaded? What is so hard about getting them on? Also, does anyone have a part number for threaded ones / "right" ones?

He's talking about the plastic lower shock cap.s The originals were molded a little too small or something. My kit ones were real tight. They work...they are just harder to get on than they should be. I got the fixed replacements from Horizon customer support. I would think by now they have fixed ones in the kits. But maybe not.
