Has anyone put 8ight shocks on the scte? Not 3.0 shocks. I tried putting them on, but in the front, the shocks bottom out before the chassis does. This is with the shocks on the outermost holes on the tower and arms. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Www.snrgraphite.com makes taller towers. That was a mod some guys were doing on the 1.0 trucks for rough outdoor tracks. Will raise the cog so not a good idea for high bite imo.

Thanks for the info. I actually hacked up my jammin scte towers by drilling some holes and put some spacers behind the standoffs. Everything works properly now, but I sitll might get the snr towers.

My local track is a big 1/8 track, so these bigger shocks aren't a disadvantage.

Thanks

There are a few threads about what setup to use for the 8ight shocks, like springs and oil etc. Also search the original scte thread some guys have posted their setups in there.

Has anyone used the TBone racing rear bumpers or front bumpers? just curious as to how sturdy they are, I race only no bashing just liked the looks of it and it did look pretty strong and durable when I seen it a race this past winter.

I race only as well. No bashing. I do run the T-bone bumper rather than the stock one. Its great. Super durable, actually absorbs more impact due to flexing in the event of a lawn dart landing or head on crash when someone jumps the pipe right in front of you as your driving down the straight.

Thanks for the info on the bumper, I was probably going to stay with My RPM front bumper and go with the TBone on the rear. But might go with it on both, not sure yet. also is this the correct diff cases or is ther a HD on thats different?

Yea I know I need 2 of those, I thought there was a different case. I want to replace them as I have a couple questionable screw holes.

These work great for the diffs too. Don't strip out as easily.

Has anyone tried out the Trackstar 4 pole motors, specifically the 4250kv?
I need a ROAR approved motor for regionals and I like the price point on that one.
I currently run the HW 4000kv and its been great, especially considering the price.

If I am rebuilding the front and rear diff's should I go ahead and replace the ring and pinions? nothing is leaking or making any kind of noise right now, and they both still feel smooth, it's just that I go tthe truck used and have raced it for a year now, and have never had them apart, so I don't even know what oil is in them. Kind of on a budget and they are the most expensive things in the diff's

If everything is smooth and you cant see any chips on the Ring or pinion, No reason what so ever to replace. Just rebuild with fresh oil and keep on truckin.
