I'm currently geared 44/15. And my track Is pretty decent in size. If I want more top end I have dropped to a 43 spur before. Still with zero issues.

Id remove the broken fan

Are you going out th LHR this week I'd like some tuning tips I did 30 wt all around and 5/5/3 diff setup since leisure was out of 7k for the center... Gonna run dual shorty packs seems like wiring is gonna be annoying. Getting it like I like it... Anyone have pics of a clean setup. And I'm also wondering who's gonna make the first true 4s shorty pack I see SMC has them but they are pre order might hafta give em a call n jump on a few of those ASAP

Casper or Ryan, on the SCTE 2.0, forward battery placement is great with a 550 motor, and this is mentioned in the newer setup, but what battery placement is working in the 3.0 buggy? We are running it forward for now (not shorties, by the way).

With shorties, we run 1 pad back, with full pack, run all the way forward.

Thanks!

Are you working on an updated "Dunford" setup like you came out with for the SCTE 2.0--that setup is awesome . . .

For indoor the only change we have made to the kit setup is change the front pivot inserts to 0's all around. Buggy is really good.

Would that be 0 in rear as well, or just the front?

Has anyone come up with a list with part numbers to convert 2.0 to 3.0? I just want the new shocks and geometry. i know i need new shocks, springs, towers, front arms and spindles. Anything I'm missing?

We kept the rear with the kit setup. I clarified the post above.

Thank you sir. What about the kit setup having 5k in the rear diff. I never used more than 3k, what will having 5 in the rearr do? More rear traction? More stable? Sorry if this has been covered, I dont remember reading it.

Yes, we use 5/5/5...the 5k in the rear will help you on power out of corners, to stabilize the car.
