I'm pretty sure those are for the shock body over the threads.

It may be our track but hard on the throttle it starts to plane on top of the dirt. Had to go with 4 To get it to dig.

Is everyone shimming their rear differential/bearing inserts as the manual states? I am building my second e 3.0 kit and it came with waaaayyyy more shims compared to when I bought one last December.

BTW I am running 573 but tomorrow at practice I am going to try 575. Just for the heck of it. Then I am going to try 572 this weekend. Hopefully I can make up my mind which I like best before I invest in some heavy duty diffs.

Good deal. I tried all three and ended up with 573. I liked the 572 better than the 575 but our tracks have a total different bite from one another.


I just finished my other build and installed all AVID bearings from the get-go and ended up with two small black rubber shielded flanged bearings left over. Looks like the Ackerman bearings. I'm wondering if AVID supplies 4 of those because of the TLR kit containing two ackermans.

Were you in Louisville for a trophy race at Adventure RC a few weekends ago?

MHO is that that the 3.0 is a better kit but only lacks the off power steering of the 2.0. if the mod is a lot of work I am just going to buy the brass weight for the front with the battery forward.
I can try and take some pictures, but I really have no idea how to post pictures on here.

There was another guy at the track with a 3.0 and he still had everything in the stock position and was running the brass weight in his. I didn't get a chance to see how his was doing or ask him what he thought of it before he left.

Which upgraded diffs would you recommend going with?

It's not a must do option but when I was running a truggy motor in my 2.0 I ran these. I am picking some up today. Mainly I like these in the center.
