I had a set screw really tight. So what I did was fire up my soldering iron and let the tip touch where the hole is (set screw) for like 10 seconds then try removing the screw.

The heat will loosen up the threadlock.

So you have no tension on the springs? Cool. How does the suspension feel?

way to soft. reset them back to where they were. front shock bodies started to back out. tightened them up. running 10 turns on the front and 8 on the back. getting a new battery for my calipers this week. it great to have inherited top of the line machinists tools. but my white nail polish worked like a charm. counted turns on each adjuster, so that is all reset. want to really run it and check temps. i have a infrared thermometer from my trout fishing gear reads from -5 to 356 degrees.

A caliper is both a great and useful tool. In this hobby, its an absolute must.

Glad to see you're enjoying the truck.

I am looking around to see what other shocks will fit this truck.

Good score, chris555. Banditos are awesome on road tires.
When I bought my Cutback, it included a free charger from wall duratrax. (Li-24)

Nice, I am curious to see how you like them. I am still looking for a shock upgrade.

Just ordered one as they are on sale again. It was cheaper than buying all brushless goodies to get my RC10 going again. Will a 3s battery fit in the chassis?

What's the tooth pitch on the gears? I saw it somewhere and cant find it now.... Id like to order a larger pinion. Sounds like the 17/54 is the consensus right now?

EDIT: nvm, 32P

@superotto:

I will let you know how the shocks work out once they arrive. The USPS website tracking shows they are set to arrive tomorrow.

@java:

Congrats on the truck. So far, I have been loving it.
About the 3s question, I think you can. I saw a video on youtube of a guy running his on 3s.

Heres the video.

Awesome thanks, I may order a cheap 3s just for fun. Are you still running 17/54? I see some others running 15 also.

Welcome for the video share.

I may pick up a 3s asap.

I am running stock gearing (11/62).
