what is the general opinion of the pucks system for stock class on this truck? I currently have it on my Centro and have had good luck. Just wondering how it holds up on a heavier truck. Indoor clay primarily, our local Outdoor Track closed up this year.

To me anything over 0.10 seconds transit times are noticably slow. I prefer more speed. I've run 1258's in every car I own from my B5M to my SC5M to my SCTE 2.0 to my Tekno SCT410 with absolutely no problems. What are you referring to when you say "glitching"?

I've ran the 1258's as well and have never had any glitching issues running Hobbywing esc's. I thought the problem was only with castle esc's.

The wheels would twitch. I had to put a bec i think its called. But know i have a 4px.i previous had a spectrum radio. So i dont know if that will make a difference. I like the warranty on the savox, so i think that would be my first choice

I choose this for my first build. So far I have done everything up to bag E, the differential. Does anyone have tips they want to share
I used the bulkhead piece with less angle and used the rounder steering block inserts. I'm not sure what either of these features do mind you. With a kit this expensive, I don't know why they left out a couple set screws that would have cost them a penny at most.

Yeah i couldn't believe they couldn't supply the set screws, but in my kit all the bags were labeled backwards. I guess it just makes things interesting

I ran the puck system on my stock sc10 and they held up great im waiting on some feedback to see. i think they make them for mod now. I have not made my mind up on stock or mod and the pucks make a big difference

I am running the pucks system in mine for 17.5. I have two full race days with zero issues so far. The truck is not much heavier than the SC10, so i don't expect much of a difference in durability.

I mostly run the KO RSX. Its the best or among the best. Then I run the Airtronics 94661, the Radiopost green....and the Savox 1258 is a good servo (great for the price) but its a little power hungry and they are annoyingly loud. There are a lot of good servos.....Futaba makes outstanding servos, Hitec has some good ones too.

Default Setup Help

Running my truck on basically a box stock setup, other than the shocks. I am running VRP pistons (2x1.5/2x1.6, 40k/35k) with grey springs in front and whites in rear. The truck is incredibly loose in the rear end, off power, like when coming into turns. Any sort of advice or tips? Track is med to high bite (tends to blue groove by the mains) outdoor. And what are people doing to combat the nose diving over jumps? I'm running the brass c, and not really looking to add the brass d, as that will compound my issue of the back end wanting to slide out on me, through the turns.
