I superglued the stock plastic end at the track and it actually worked LOL but I wanted something more engineered for hard big jumps and my occasional screwed up landings.

And yes my stock plastic was screwed all the way in.

I'll be ordering these blocks, I like hearing a positive testimonial before I order stuff.

I have a question about bump steer. A lot of the setup sheets I see have a 2mm washer added for bump steer. Would I be correct to assume that the 2mm washer adds bump steer (which I believe adds toe out at full compression)? When using bump steer I have also noticed that most setup sheets have +1 or +2 degrees of toe in. Can someone please elaborate more on this as it pertains to how it affects the handling of the truck on the track.

Question # 2: When you set toe in or out I have always set it at ride height. Is this the correct way to do it? Thanks.

What Chassis? H1 or V2 Pro?

im in a stage where i have both V2Pro and TLR's chasi laying around and both the MIP Pro4-Mance SCTE 2.0 Rigid Chassis Brace Kit (MIP13249) and Team Losi Racing Front/Back Torque Rod Set.

What do you suggest? to use MIP's? TLR's? to mix them? (using one as back and the other as front)

Anyone still having an issue with Nose Dive off jumps? I've tried a new motor, still happens. New softer rear springs, no change. This thing is almost un driveable. I can't find any evidence of drive train binding either. Checked gear mesh too, and that looks fine. I'm not a pro, but not a noobie either. Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same problem when I ran mine for the first time, moved the batter all the way back and reset the ride heights and solved the problem.

Try turning your drag brake way down or off.

All jumps or just one or two? Make sure your sway bars are free and you have not over tightened the upper shock mounts and bound up the shocks. These are common mistakes.

Everything everyone's said is true about the nose dive issue. Realistically, all I do is throttle up in the air and that levels out the truck. The nose down jumping is helpful for downsiding jumps though. Drag brake definitely makes it worse. But applying more throttle in the air and backing off just before landing has been working for me since day one. My 22-4 jumps the same way, so I use the same technique.

Stay in the throttle when jumping ,make sure shocks are built right and set up correctly ,try adjusting the rrar shock springs a little up or down and try those jumps again.If yer new to the 4x4 SCT it does take more gas when jumping!!!

I have same Issue, running this truck a long time. Some days better than others, Check gear mesh, never run Drag brake. I started running softer shock oils and will try going back because the nosedive is back and when I go for big jumps the Hekno guys fly flat over. Mine dumps the nose it's the only problem I need to solve on this truck. I have to full throttle in the air. if I let off It lands nose first..... sigh.... i'm not novice
