What ride height is suggested with the new T5M springs? I was running 24mm all around with the old kit springs. I installed the new white springs all around and with the shock collars fully backed out the lowest it will sit at is 28mm.

Put on the different shock cups that hold the springs and will fix that.

Do you run on carpet? 24mm is awful low for a stadium truck

Try changing the spring cups. Kit is 9mm cups but with the longer truck springs you need to switch to the 5mm, same as the buggy.

Do you really need to buy a new top shaft to convert to a 3 gear? The part numbers are the same. Am I missing something?

Please forgive me if I've missed this somewhere in the thread. When I scale my truck, it's 61.8% in the rear. I've been working with a very experienced 2wd driver and he said that the sweet spot is 64-65 rear. I've moved stuff around and the best I can get at the moment is 62.4 rear. I run on an outdoor track with medium traction. The track is a little bumpy and has some decent sized jumps. I just can't get the rear of the truck planted as well as I'd like. That being said, I also have a push in higher speed, sweeping turns. I have the 3 gear tranny and a viper 7.5 motor. Maybe it's more my throttle control but I feel that the truck could be so much better than what it is. The total weight of the truck is 1947 grams. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
