I think this weekend, after I install the rear swaybar kit (front is done already), I may swap the 62t for the 54t spur and go with a higher pinion and se what I can get out of her.

i'm running 54t spur. i don't nose in much. i have a 16t pinion waiting to go in and the turnbuckles as well. what size battery is everyone running. i have 1 25c 4000, and two 25c 5000 on the way. my friends son runs 40c lipo and his box stock prosc kills me in a straight line. i can out handle him so i can keep him in reach.

chris555, thanks for chiming in.
I am running 2s 5400mah 40c batteries in mine. Stock gearing (11t/62t).

I also ordered the turnbuckle set. I was going to use slash 4x4 links but the servo link is much too short.

Did you change the shock oil or anything?

no, i don't exactly understand all that yet. i do have the front shocks adjuster almost all the way down, and the back about half way. does not ride level. nose as high as i get it. left front has rubbed the body clear. not sure why. gonna rise body post location on the front. Went out to a track over in nj with a friend. getting better at driving. Still yet to break anything, other then crack in back of body where it goes over rear bumper. Gonna take some of my wives nail polish and make a visual aid on the adjusters so i can count turns to keep my adjustments equal. waiting on a camber gauge to come UPS before i throw the turnbuckles on. then i sent toe- in and camber, do the pinion. I have been real happy with the truck overall. I'm a real low budget guy, so i know i'll never be able to get or have the best out there. so it fits what i want to do.

I haven't done a thing with the shocks or diffs. Running mine stock pretty much.

A camber gauge is always a good thing to have. I use the Losi one.

well turnbuckles are in as well as the pinion. notice one of the front arms is way stiff even with nothing attached to it. also it doesn't sit as low as the opposite one. the stiffer one is on the opposing side from the body rub. by stiffer i mean it does not move as freely. wish i could find a way to set the front toe, i do have to change supplied toe blocks in the rear. it was dark by the time i got the turnbuckles in, so no road test.

Second the servo is very slow, will need to be upgraded eventually. I actually was a little surprised with the speed, I read everywhere how slow it is on 2s, but I did not think it was that bad. The one very minor annoying element of the truck is the battery location is tight, getting a battery in then trying to get the velcro straps is annoying.

Overall, I really like the truck, it is solid and seems like it can take a beating. I do not plan on racing it so I will only upgrade as I break something.
I think if they pulled the buckles out a little bit so they don't keep getting under the shaft it would be best

I am unsure why the front arm would not be moving freely with nothing attached (I am assuming you mean when the shocks aren't attached).

Maybe someone can chime in on this matter.

Im thinking there is crap in the hinge point, might just need to tear it down and clean it up. anyone got any ideas on bearing lubricant? noticed bearing on center diff going to front seems to have build up of crud, well they all seems to. going to tear diffs down once the weather goes to hell here for the season, which isn't far off.

I would say try taking the arms off and look over the hinge pins.
