I think the motor will work fine geared right. The 4150kv actually does too on the tracks you mentioned when geared right as well.

I was told the new top plate adds clearance for the ackerman.

Has anybody tried the new "Recommended indoor outdoor dirt" setup? I'm curious about the heavy diff oils. 15-15-10 seems really high compared to most setups I have seen and what I have run. Just wondering how it feels compared to lower diff oils like 7-7-5. Does anybody have experience with the heavier diff oil? I have running on a tight indoor track and I'm concerned about not having enough steering with the higher oil. Thanks!!

I meant the top plate over the center diff

This is what the fastest guy at our track runs in his. I'm running it too and turning is not an issue. It's a 105 by 50 foot layout. Packed groomed dirt. Lots of turns and junps.

What is the most durable and best flying bodies you guys have found to work for use on a big outdoor track? im looking at the flotek fusion or the jconcepts raptor. I have the sc10 one on my car now and it falls apart fast.

Im ready to spend some extra money on the next one to make sure its quality.

from a durability perspective from what I recall, I really liked the Jconcepts Nissan Titan body. And I think it has like a built in rear that acts somewhat like a wing. This was used indoors small track and large outdoor 1/8 track.

Right now, I am running the Dodge Ram body from proline. I am liking it so far, the material is more flexible than the jconcepts so it doesn't seem to damage as easily. Backing it with some fiber reinforced tape helps a lot too. Looking forward to trying it outdoors.

The Jconcept 79 Ranger body is a beast as well. I have ran the wheels off my truck with this body and so far it has outlasted everything else I have used.

I had Proline-Flowtek and Jconcepts Hi-Flow.
The bodies got annihilated after one full day at outdoor track.
The bodies were reinforced with shoe-goo and dry-wall tape from the beginning.

The cutouts for the air flow really made the body weaker. Creating more cracks.

I hear the Jconcepts BAJR has the least tendency to crack due to not having any air holes.

Thats pretty cool, always been a fan of that vintage Ford's. How do the rear body posts match up? I cant see them in the photos. I'd be interested in trying this body if the posts are in a place that work well for clips.

I think a guy local runs that. Looks good.

One body I liked but probably isn't a race body was the jconcepts one that had light buckets built in. Made that into a police truck back in the day, was fun

So, any more news on the new starting setup? How has it been running for you, especially in in high traction situations? I am debating making pistons or buying some.

New set-up is working great for me so far. Bested my avg time in the mains (10-min) by a full lap, going from 20 to 21 laps. Not the fastest guy there but if I can finish with-in a lap of the leaders I'm good.
Started to fall off the pace in the last couple of weeks and it is all about tires.... so new rubber for this weekend.

Going to a track in OK Saturday, a different type of track (way more elevation change) and a looser red dirt. The track will develop pot holes and ruts as the day progresses. (good 'ol off-road racing) I'll drop a post on Sunday on how the truck worked.
