You also need the Aluminum C Block (others can stay composite)

What option parts should I consider buying with a new kit?
None are required but we recommend the following:

TKR5545B HRC Rear Hubs (L/R, CV or uni, SCT.3/SL) - Improves stability of the rear on mid to corner exit. Allows harder acceleration on corner exit.

I tried running non carpet tyres front, but that just created excessive ondersteer and reduced acceleration. I dont have different springs or pistons to swop out.

What other changes can I attempt to curb this. Track is fairly smooth with only small jumps.

Any help would be appreciated.
Go all the way down on the A block and all the way up on the B block to give yourself the least amount of kickup - less dive into the turn and all of our cars seem to drive better with less kickup. Go all the way down on the C block to have less antisquat - more rear "side" traction into a turn. Lesson your front toe out - less off power steering and more on power push. Move your ackermann all the way forward - less sensitive steering off center and more high speed on power steering. Try using your steering limiters on the spindles - you might have more steering than you need. Move the rear shocks out on the tower - should give a little more rear traction into corners.
There's definitely more to try but these are the first things I think of. You may also try a lower RC in the rear.

Default Sct410v1 vs. Sct410v3

Hey guys I have been following this tread for a while and was hoping to see some comparisons between the sct410v1 vs the new sct410v3 from someone that either has them both or made the upgrade to the new truck. I have not seen any reviews, if i missed them please point me in the right direction. So my question is how much better is the new truck than the original? If so what improvements are noticeable.

Tekno says to measure the center of the upper and lower shock mounting screws, the rear should be about 118 mm if I recall correctly. I'm not in love with that method. I like the wat the Hudy set up guide shows, so after I have it at the recommended Tekno setting, I use small blocks under the chassis and measure the axle heigth.

So should I set ride height then droop, or droop then ride height, or does it matter

It won't matter for those 2. But do set your ride height before you set your camber. And anytime you change your camber or front toe check the other one. Also check your bumpsteer any time you make RC, ackermann, or front arm sweep adjustments.

Run time wont be all that great with the 4300hd and 4600mah unless you are real light on throttle/brakes and have current limiter etc turned down in esc. Most run 6500-7200 mah packs (for racing anyway)Just have to try them and see what you can get out of them .

I have the same set up, but I have some Eco Power 4000 mah shorty's for my buggy that I play with. I was impressed with the run time. I was getting around 5 minutes which is enough to check set up changes and warm up with out messing with race batteries. I will time mine next time if it ever drys up in Ohio.....

Is there a front bumper that will stick out in front of the body like slash 4x4? I really like the look and durability of having the bumper out in front of the body.

Default Motor/Esc Connection

I always solder my motor directly to the esc. Anybody use bullets between motor and esc? Just wondering how well it works? Saw this setup this wkend and thought that would make changing out motor and/or esc easy.

I think T-Bone Racing's bumper may stick out past the body but I'm not sure. The stock bumper was designed to not go past the front of the body. When trucks that have the bumper in front of the body take a big hit the body often flexes up and over the bumper which then puts stress on the body mounts and the body.
