The local track has a off road carpet set up now and I am going to buy a t5m. My question is they allow 8.5 to 13.5 motor and what ever esc. The trach is a tight track longest straight away is 40' I have no clue what I should be running on this thing. I have a old flip flow esc and a old Novak 10.5 motor is this worth messing with. I really want this thing to be as light as possible.

I really don't see this working all that well for the truck.

I have tried them in the rear in med/lo grip conditions to find a little more traction.

3x1.4's have a touch less pack than 2x1.6 but the 1.4's react very quickly to small cst/fluid changes.

Is anyone else having issues with the ball studs in the rear hubs breaking? I have the aluminum hubs and I've broke 3 of them already. Have to replace the hubs now.

Not here but I'm running old-school stock plastic hubs here.

Yes Ive seen and had the threads pull out. I had to JB Weld my studs in place. With AE

The Schelle alloy is better, threads are tighter. Plus if something does happen you can replace the stud mount.

I have seen 3 break on the the same night. All 3 of them DID NOT use loctite. If they come unscrewed just a little, you loose the support of the spacers and now have more leverage on the threads. Speaking of spacers, 1 plastic one max on the stackup and put it closest to the stud flange. I prefer all alum spacers for strength and always use blue loctite when going into alum.

I've tried them both with and without loctite and have broken them both ways. Guess I'll try the Schelle hubs. Getting frustrated with this truck. Thinking of going to the 22t. I hate to because I'll lose so much in it but I just can't get it as dialed as my buddies Losi that's basically box stock. Just can't explain it.

I broken several ball studs in the alum rear hubs and even the rear camber mount, but I haven't broken a single stud when using the kit plastic rear hubs.

Don't give up hope just because you can't use alum rear hubs. The T5M is an outstanding truck!

This is a general question but are there any other shock changes that should be done when using the new truck springs? Had 35wt f&r 1.6f 1.7r blue springs f grey springs rear, went to green front white rear truck springs. Felt like it was more tippy in high speed corners.

Try using ball stud with bulkhead shim instead of ball stud shims, I've never broken a ball stud.
