Your losing ground clearance and ride height. I wouldnt run skid plates as they will catch the take off of jumps.

It wont act the same. If you are spending money on shock oil, just get the sway bar. A lot quicker to change a sway then it is to change shock oils. A sway bar change is more of a finite change where as a shock oil change is more drastic.

Im running the TLR chassis protector. Runs from the rear skit plate all the way up to the top of the front bumper. Comes 2 in a pack and seems to be pretty thick. Definitely better than some duck tape I've been using on previous RCs. I suppose anything I can get to work is fine by me. Gotta keep the chassis looking presentable

Nope, they have made zero difference to the handling of my truck or my driving

Torque oz./in. (4.8V/6.0V): 111 / 139

Also anyone use a SP GT 2.0 pro with either a tenshock 4600kv or HW 4000/4600kv motors?

Thanks
No!
That said, I prefer to use a hitec 7940tg. 260ish on torque and speed of 0.06 on 7.4v and 0.08 I think on 6v

Thanks for your opinions! Would you recommend the HW or Tenshock 4000kv motor? Any issues if I throw in a 3S battery from time to time?

I have a couple of front bars from an 8ight T RTR 1.0 kit... silver colored. Issue is, I can't tell which size is which.

Calipers should help.

Never ran a tenshock but the hw 4k is so fast and smooth and runs so cool it is darn near perfect. Also I only race so never ran a 3s but from what ive seen out of my buddies slash 4x4 on 3s that the 4k would be just too stupid fast with a 3s. Might start running into heat issues with that set up as well.

I seen on one of the MIP setup sheets that said they ran the short akerman bar what effect does that have as I currently am running the long one.

The long Ackerman plate has smooth off-power steering and is more forgiving. The long Ackerman
plate has more steering on-power. The short Ackerman plate responds quicker and has more steering
in the middle of the turn. A short Ackerman plate is better suited for tight technical tracks.
