Thank you, so by unscrewing the shock shaft 2 turns you are achieving droop, haven't raced off road in a few years so trying to get back into the grove, on-road we always used droop with the set screw so thought it would be similar but it's not. Thanks for the help

The pistons that come in the shock rebuild kits do not mirror any of the marked and numbered aftermarket pistons. The SCTE 2.0 comes with 3/4 setup in the main bag and the rest in the option bag.

yes, that adjust shock length and in turn droop assuming you are not allowing the droop screw to hit the chassis after unscrewing the shocks.

Hacker07 I Bn running that new setup and its awsome . I running on a tight indoor med/high grip and I was wondering what changes I might make to improve it on the tight track? Maybe move rear hubs forward. It does everything great really balanced and easy to drive hard. Just trying to make it better for me. Thanks.awsome setup!

Are you running the updated alum carriers up front? What is it you are trying to get more of out of the truck?

I read issues about not jumping correctly. What caught my attention was Casper and Ryan’s comments about sway bar. Other than take it on and off, I did not know what or how to adjust it.

So,
I took off the front tires and shocks. I noticed when lift one side, both arms stayed up. Additionally, when I lift the drivers side, the passenger side rises only 50% verses the other way around lifting passenger side.
Also noticed the front sway bar touches the drive shaft but is not the cause of the above issue.

I decided to take off both camber links and everything works fine ?!?!!??!????

How do I fix this?

ALSO:
I wish TLR would do a youtube on sway bar and binding. What to looks for, how it should work and how to adjust and make things right

Waiting for these, thinking they will help my setup a bit.

New set-up question.

You note the over-all shock length in the set-up sheet. Is this measured from the very top of the shock cap to the bottom of the lower eyelet? And it is adjusted by screwing the bottom eyelet on or off correct?

If you need to make the shocks longer you can unscrew the shock eyelet. If you need to make the shock shorter you can use the droop screws in the arms to limit the shock down travel.

Measure from center of the upper shock mount to the center of the lower shock screw.

Thanks Casper
I had figured it out and just used the droop adjustment to get the shock length measurement.
89.5 f / 98.5 r

I am looking forward to trying the new set-up. The last one has worked well but I always open to try to find the extra .5 second a lap. I am not one of the fast guys, but can run in the middle of the A consistently.

Local track is indoor, a moist clay. Running Panther Rattlers SS and a 15/39 gear. Mikes Hobby in Carrolton TX. 20 second lap times. Sadly it is closing at the end of the month. Good news, Mike is looking at a new location just down the road.

What is your thoughts on using this new set-up on a larger indoor track. They normally run it dry and it is like sand paper. Good traction in the groove, dusty on the edges, and it eats tires. We run Proline Blockade Soft. I run 16/40 on this track and run 32 second laps (a couple seconds a lap off the pace...)

Dirt Racer, I used the droop screw adjustment to limit the shock travel.

TLR... the new set-up was on the mark today at the indoor clay track. Truck felt planted going into and going out of turns. Jumped fine and stayed on track under power. Put a big smile on my face... unfortunately did not correct my driver error mistakes during the main.

thanks for sharing... I am going to try it a the larger track next weekend
