Sorry if I came off a little harsh. Wasn't meant that way. My point being there are plenty of guys that will steer you down the wrong path because they don't know enough about what's going on with your truck. Myself or Hacker or an one else can't give you any recommendations unless we know where you're at now. I was simply asking for more details. Everything matters when you're trying to get a car or truck working like you want it to.

Definitely appreciated...i screwed the pooch a little by not taking enough notes on my initial setup. I'm learning that one of my most critical tools needs to be a pencil lol

They swapped drive shafts front to back between the 1.0 and 2.0. On the bottom on A-Mains site it has a note about it.

Thanks again to everyone!

We have been putting alot of time on a few scte trucks,It seems impossible to set a reliable toe and camber with these losi ball ends,even with the hardened anodized ball ends,after very few runs its totally losi loose. Has anyone tried running xray or tekno ball ends on this model? They have a little angle built into them? They seem to last alot longer on those other models.

Best fix I've found is running the mip kit that replaces the ends with dubro parts. If you shop around you can get ti turnbuckles and the ends for about $50. They last a long time. The mip kit uses the 4-40 ends but I used the 3mm ones.

The mip kits use 4-40 size. They also make monster rod ends.

I think the regular ones would be fine for steering and the monster ones for camber links. We used to run the 4-40 ends on our gas trucks back in the day and they didn't have slop and lasted a long time. You can get good deals on ebay. I just picked up a 20 pack of the 3mm HD for less than $20 shipped. I'm going to use 3mm ti turnbuckles on the steering and drill them out and use 3.5 mm ti on camber links.

As good a truck as this is I cannot believe TLR would not take the time to address this issue. I love the truck and am glad I decided to go with it, but man the slop drives me crazy.

6040 out of those two; 6030 is not fast enough for most drivers. "The best" is always a question of budget and availability; a trackstar ts-900 is a good cheap solution if you have a lot of patience, as chinese new year will delay shipments to over a month. A KO bsx2 is better and you will get it quicker, for a price though. There are a lot of good ones in between, right now I would probably check out this Xpert or this Hitec.
