While I generally agree, I don't run my local track. The only open mod is 4wd and almost nobody runs it. The rest are stock buggy, truck and sct.

I guess if ya got the money, run stock then. I ran mine bone stock with only upgrade was Schelle ceramic gearbox bearings, and a $180 stock motor, it was keeping up with mod truck since they crashed a lot. But mod is more fun and doesn't stress the motor as much. But if you don't have the option, run what ya can!

Not even a certified costs that much. What motor were you running that costs $180?

Are most of you cutting out the center plastic cross sections on the chassis cradle to allow more flex like many are doing with the buggy?

Thanks.

Fantom Ion V5 Team Works LOADED with all the bells and whistles.
It was fast as hell but Having to buy that stuff just to be competitive is crap. All the lightweight parts n crap... Sold all that stuff and put a 10.5 in my truck and its a blast! May go up to a 7.5 one of these days.

If you are running kit setup with 3mm spacers on the hub then the stock studs are what you want. If you are running less soacers then stock you will need the 2mm shorter studs. I believe the instructions for the alum hubs have the part number on them as well. But If I remember correctly you will want the 4mm studs

Stock setup is pretty good. Start there and adjust to your liking afterwards.

I was trying to reproduce Ryan C. setup for the 2015 ROAR Natls. and on his setup sheet it says for springs "AE truck white" and he went to the med length lower spring cups I believe they are the 5mm in the manual. But looking at the pics of his truck in the desktop thing from the Associated web site it shows very long springs with the shock collars almost all the way up. I purchased a set of SC5M white springs assuming they were the "AE truck white" springs he was referring to, only to find out they are the same as the T5M springs my mistake there I didn't compare them. Does anyone have a part number for the actual springs he ran ? our next race is the 7 of Nov. and I'd like to get a set.

He ran Kyosho white, not the SC white springs.
