Default Not on current topic

For those running the Sworkz wing which I happen to love, if you want quick access to your rear towers here is an easy way to get at em when running the wing in high (mounts up).
I was experimenting with options of not cutting this wing down following some old school 1/8 habits when I found this and felt like Sharing

Just drill/ream 2 holes at the corner of the raise and your gold!!

If I was gonna change anything, I would come down to 30k centre diff, as I'm pulling wheelies at the moment with 50k.

The setup sheet I got said he was running 1 million in the center diff! Another guy at our track was running his set up with 500,000 in the center and it was dialed.

Just fitted the 2.0 sway bar from d8.
Only needs bending and cutting and the ends.
Will hopefully try it this weekend☺


Edit: i use the switch sway bar holders with some shortes link i had laying around. Also mounted them the other way in rear so that they dont bind with the upper link

Even with 50k in the centre of mine, when I launched at the start of my final I did a back flip on the spot. Once moving, 50k was fine.

How many of you folks here have upgraded to the +6mm chassis? pretty expensive upgrade with the seperate top decks, especially when compared to the complete kit from schelle although it's 2.5mm and only +4mm....Comments?? Anyone compared the two??

Don't bother with them they will snap very easy. Just buy a bunch of the stock ones and do not locktight them. There were designed to bend as Torrence has stated on this forum.

So are the traxxas x-rings the only ones that will work? Got some 22 2.0 and associated x-rings. Waiting on my car.

That is an, as yet, unreleased slipper clutch. If you look at Tessman's world's set up, you will see a suggested alternative.

I think the shock shafts on TLR are a little larger, 3.5mm if I remember correctly.
