Definitely get some good quality m3 X 20mm flat head screws and pay attention to your arms mounts. I keep bending the screws, even without crashing.

I believe the aluminum shock caps are a needed upgrade, but just on the front. There are other options to keep the front shocks from popping off, such as mentioned by snwchris above.

I would pick up a shock plastics set, extra front shock shafts, front tower brace and maybe a spur gear. The shim kit is good to have as well.

If you are bothered by the steering slop, the Exotek or RCShox ackerman bar will help. The x-ray ball studs work great to take out more slop but are ridiculously expensive for a pair. Be aware that the height of the balls is lower than stock D413 balls which can limit your adjustments once you shim to make them match up with the stock balls.

I filed my hub bushings and that worked fine but I'm sure the xray parts make it easier.

I run the sworks wing and like it but it does add weight to the car and it's up high.

As far as a setup and shock pistons, that will depend on your track. Pay attention to what track conditions any online setup was used for. I run indoor smooth carpet and the stock pistons with more holes are great for that.

Com'on Icecream again! you really should not be telling other people what they can and can not post (officer). If you read his post correct he said " what tips and tricks" not (things I only need) . He has been on RC tech since 2009 im sure he can decide what he can afford and how much time his has on his own. stay off my post ICECREAM!!!!

I tried them. Didnt like them and tossed them in the trash. My thoughts on them. To each their own.

They felt inconsistent. Jumped a little funky. I run on an extremely high bite clay track using clay slicks. Just as an FYI.

That's funny I feel 100% the opposite..

OCRC is a mid-high bite track that has some small.. hi frequency bumps where the pistons pick up the consistency...The quicker rebound seemed to help settle the suspension better across the board...especially under breaking. On my 2wd..oh boy did they make my breaking more consistent.

Didn't see a difference in jumping with the current layout. I will test again when they switch it up..could very well be the track.

I can see if the track is pretty much on an on-road track with jumps...They really wont add anything

Weird I run on a high bite clay track, seems like it jumps great, I was running them really soft at first but switched to a 40f/30r with stock springs on my 2 hole 1.6 VRP's and I love them, car is crazy predictable, reacts quickly and I feel like I can maneuver the heck out of it. Too bad you threw them away I'd have bought them from you.

I use the 1.6 in the front.

and 1.7 in the rear.

They also included a cool little piston caddy..Think of a 1" X 1" square with 4 posts on it with removable o rings inside a plastic box..Great for holding all the other pistons you might have.

miles better than some other guys that just throw pistons in a poly bag.

The 1.6 will give you a bit more pack next to the 1.7. So it will stiffen the rear up a tad.

For the most part -
Decreases rear grip at corner exit/gives more push under power.
Less prone to bottoming out.

Hey Guys does anyone have a good starting point setup for med to high bite outdoor clay track... Just got my car today starting the build tonight using a 6.5t motor setting up with a shorty battery.

Any help is much appreciated....
