The only experience I had with the 2 pad slipper was a previous mid motor truck I had.

It was horrible - either too tight or too loose. Ended up smoking a diff which was odd for me.

After a night of messing with it, I put a schelle on it and never looked back. My current T5M was immediately put together with a schelle 3 pad.

Is that the chassis that takes the inserts for weight bias? I can't remember what the company was.

So the 5mm hexes will not work on the rear of this truck thanks for the misleading information Team Associated. Got my build done went to put the wheels on and the rim hits the ball stud on the rear. Grrrr

I'm running them on mine with no issues. I'm using DE Speedline wheels and the stock hubs. Do you have the Alum hubs?
