Default Pro line Raptor

Can some who has the flotek raptor show how they mounted the rear post. Seems there is a week spot if you cut the holes out in the back of the body. Thanks in advance.

I just installed schelle aluminum rear hubs. Much less slop than factor plastic ans more running options.

Broken my first front A arm yesterday. Replaced with what the track had In stock. Do the hard arms hold up better?

Also another question, I replaced the front axles with the T5M clamping axle (ASC71013) so I could use the 6.5mm Clamping front hexes. I noticed after putting on my wheels (Jconcepts 3mm offset Hazards) that the wheel nut is all the way bottomed out when putting the nut on. There is a little flex as it seems like there is half a turn maybe left that it would need to be completely snug.

Has anyone experienced this? It seems like the stock axle has a wider offset than the t5m axle with 6.5mm clamping hex. Would putting a bigger clamping hex such as the 8.5mm snug it up more? Or would I be better just to remove those and put the stock axle back on?

Those axles just ended up not being quite right for the sc5 by a hair using the 6mm hex. Me personally I would rather keep the correct offset. So I'd put the stock axles back on.

That's what I was thinking but wanted to make sure it wasn't something I was doing wrong or I was crazy. I like the idea of the clamping hex but I also would rather have a wider offset for more stability.

Do the hard arms make a difference or are they pretty much the same as the standard arms?

The hard arms take away a small bit of grip but adds a lot of consistency in how the truck corners/lands/accelerates.

unfortunately no.
not sure you would get any performance gains and the truck jumps poorly with the battery/weight forward biased (imo of course).

I could be wrong as I am learning myself but, I don't think a laydown tranny in a SCT will make much of a difference. Are you running a 3 gear or 4 gear tranny currently?
