So i tried every O and X-rings on the planet and i can't build my shocks so they dont rebound after only 2 hours of racing. Anyone know if i can use shocks from another brand ? Kyosho is to small i guess, but is there anybody else making shocks long enough ?

Sorry but are you building them with a bladder or emulsion style?

A little bit of bumping is fine, but guys that started out with SCT take it too far. They try to race with you in practice when you're clearly faster and drive through you when you get near them. I practice with purpose, so I don't want people that don't know how to control their 6lb over powered missiles to screw that up.
How about a cheeseburger and some french cries? Seriously? 6lb over powered missile? Give me a break. I run SCT and I manage to run my lines, "with purpose," and don't have any issues with buggies. And when I run my D413 I can do the same thing and not have issues with SCT's. I am a good enough driver to outdrive an SCT with my D413, as well as not to plow buggies with my SCT. It is pretty easy, SCT's don't corner as well as our wheelers do, so when they leave that inside lane open in a corner, take it and go past them. It actually makes you a better racer to run with the SCT's. It teaches you to use the whole track while avoiding pile ups.

I will say though...there has been a few times where i was getting ran though all the time and couldn't stay away from it..No matter what i did...so i said to myself...you want to bang bars...alright...hung up the 10th scale buggies and ran my 1/8 scale the rest of the day. And it was just beautiful.

I had more punts that day then the Texas Tech game in 1939.
I was getting a little practice with my 4WD SCT Sunday before racing it for the first time. Some guy with a Slash stopped on the straight and I ran into the back of him. Didn't break either of us but apparently it made him mad cause he started waiting for me at different points on the track and trying to crash into me.

I just kind of chuckled and didn't acknowledge him. I don't think he had any idea he was trying to smack into a Tekno SCT410, which is basically an 8th scale buggy with shorter arms and smaller battery/motor.

I try pretty hard to not break other cars, especially when I'm practicing with something like my SCT alongside box stock Slashes and 2WD buggies. But it's not easy to spot people stopped in bad places when it's the first time I have the new truck on a track and I'm trying to watch what it's doing.

I'm not saying everyone that runs a SCT doesn't know how to drive, but the majority of the people that are bad drivers do run SCT.

On a more thread specific note, my D413 is coming together nicely. I got all my carbon fiber sanded and sealed. As I'm getting it back to the level of assembly at which I received the car I've been converting all of the setup stuff to the Gunsmoke setup. My cars first runs will be at a new track that is opening next month, so I want to start with a recent setup that is for a medium bite surface.

Well...Did the guy call out the straightaway? If he did that's your bad...if not then what is anyone suppose to do? Cant look that far ahead and drive consistently. Plus things like that happen...and thats ok...no biggie..

It takes ALOT of being driven over for me to break out the 1/8 scale and bang some bars...i mean ALOT...Plus I would never go after anyone...I just run my lines and enjoy the peace of mind the 1/8 gives me.

They are the Flat pistons. Tapered if the track got really rough and blown out.

No, he didn't or at least I didn't hear anything. This is a brand new track and we have a pretty big novice class. We have 1.5 hours to practice before racing starts and there just isn't a time when at least 3 or 4 of the novice drivers aren't on the track.

It's not like I have huge experience as I just got back into surface RC in April of last year. But at this point I can run good clean laps when I try.

The really hard thing is trying to practice on the outdoor track with my 10 pound big motored truggy. I don't want to destroy someones 10th scale buggy or stadium truck so I try to let them get about half way around before I start hammering. I've bumped into a few but never hard enough to do any damage.

What's your impressions on the Schelle chassis? What type of track do you run on and what was setup like compared to stock chassis?
