Not even remotely true.

Anyone else having problem with this truck nosediving? It wants to nosedive, ALOT and I cannot seem to stop it. 17.5 blinky, 3 gear, No drag brake, stock set up. 2 small pads behind battery and i have even tried it all the way back. I even tried the grey springs in the rear and no help.

any good advice would be appreciated.
thanks

Others have posted that they are. I have zero issues using the kit springs. I will post my setup to see if it helps. It has to be something like a ride height issue.

It's entirely possible. We had one jump at LRH that had a very slight lip at the top, and SC's could not hit it right, they ended up redoing it removing the lip, and they jump fine now.

Gray spring in front and 1 weight up on the oil mostly fixed my problem. Also keeping on the throttle at the launch point then letting off.

You might be undergeared too. Not enough wheel speed will a lot of times bring the nose down. I haven't had a problem with this either, then again I run a 7.5. Howeverm, I also almost always make an attitude adjustment in the air, either with steering or throttle/brake. Usually they are really subtle.

The sc5m is very very sensitive to breaking in the air. It will front flip. I drive of the face on power and have no issues. But some jumps and some layouts require modification to have I drive the jump. I dont feel their is anything "wrong" with the sc5m in the way it jumps.

question will 22sct rims fit? I only ask because I have a set left over from the 1.0 22sct and that's an extra set of rims I could be running if they'll work

I just got mine together last week and it's not nosediving at all. 17.5 blinky, 3 gear, light drag brake, shorty packs with large spacer in front, all stock setup save for one extra spacer on each shock shaft and ride height around 27mm on panther slicks.

My sc5m is my first sct, and second modern RC vehicle. I mounted two sets last week, and found them easier than 2wd buggy tires. I did a set of Proline Ions and a set of Panther slicks, both on DE Borrego wheels. The Proline were really easy, seemed like a little stiffer tire and snapped right into place every time. No rubber bands on either type.

I have found the DE Borrego wheels really easy to glue.
