I believe the wing was for high speed stability, presumably for the straight. maybe the front lifted a bit and would loose some of the steering?

yes, high speed stability. And the front wing was on his 2wd buggy and I dont think he added weight to it. Buggy and SC and not the same.

Adding weight when running on that much grip was to calm the cars down! With that much grip they become very aggressive and darty.

This all really helps with my perception on adding weight.

In that case maybe I should do it for carpet. All of my cars liked shooting out if the corner but had issues keeping the rear end straight for the first 8-12 feet.

Thanks for sharing wildcat1971, all this time I thought buggy and sc were the same. 😶

Give it a try! On high-bite astro, we are running Team Yokomo Europe's 50 g plate under a shorty battery in the brilliant YZ-2. The car is even more planted and does not roll over. With a truck, you should do whatever you can to lower the cener of gravity.

Default Awesome Sauce

Love the new short course truck have one race day under my belt and no one there was even close to matching this thing. I have a quick question does the MIP b5m diff rebuild work with the sc5m and t5m diff. Im not quite sure if the m series associated stuff have different ball diffs. Thanks in advance. Also is anyone running the schelle slipper yet on these and how do you like them. Are they worth the thirty bucks.

All the same. Transmission and internal components work in all 5 series buggies and trucks.

I've been running the oiginal Avid Triad for quite some time and now the Evo version, which doeas away with the conic spacers. It is almost the same as the Schelle, so you can use spur gears from both. I love the adjustability and feel of these slipper units and won't run anything else in an AE car or truck. There is currently no easy way to make it work in my Yokomo YZ-2, but as soon as I find a way, I'll replace the stock clutch assembly for sure.

In short: Yes, get one!
