interesting. If the gull wings do help with that diving, I might actually enjoy driving one of these things.

My son has an SC10 rs that I bought him for xmas and I hate driving it compared to my 4.2 but for some odd reason I want to get another kit to build and was thinking about the SC10.2 when it comes out. Good idea or should I just stick with buggy.

Sc is always a safe bet because there is always a class of them on race day. That being said I prefer Stadium truck for a 2nd class. ST handles much more like a buggy and for me is much more enjoyable. I do race SC on occasion but 2wd buggy,ST,and 4wd buggy are my go to classes if possible.

ST has the added bonus of no parachute.

Im the opposite, I have raced all the classes and SCT is my favourite, I supose it has to do with your personal preference and factors like if you can get one to handle better than the other, many people may try a class and have wrong setup or tires and then just dislike that class as it was terrible to drive for them

SCT takes finesse to be fast. And a general understanding that it has its own traits given the body and limitations of the narrow tires.

They can be much more unforgiving than a stadium when it comes to having a bad setup.

The sc10 does not seem as receptive to setup changes. Maybe the body is the main issue

It reacts about like any AE platform.

To me it's kind of like a "numb" version of the t4.

Well yea, that's about like comparing a Lotus Elise to a dump truck.

But kidding aside. It's not that bad. It still responds to a 1mm change in ride height and a 1/2wt change in shock oils.

Did you ever get happy with a setup?

K. Just thought I'd ask because I still come across those that havent. And doing so adds a lot of side bite in the rear.

Outdoors I tend to run a harder compound on the front. Soft front, ss rear. Helps a lot when using the Maifield setup running mod. Ymmv.

You can also run a black ballstud on the steering bellcrank. Slows it down and makes it more linear coming off center.
