Stiffer spring in the front with heavier oil (I'm currently running 37.5 front with an orange spring from the previous kit). Drastically drop your drag brake or eliminate it. The mid motor won't need it. All mid motor vehicles like to be driven differently than rear motor. Make every attempt to carry corner speed through all the corners. You will end up using the brakes very little around the track. If you do have a corner you need to brake for do it prior to the corner and drive through the corner on throttle. When setup correctly you will find that being on the throttle brings the rear end back in line in almost all cases. I've never experienced the nose down issue over jumps. Try the suggestions above and see if that makes it go away.

Folks, when setup well this truck drives itself and is just plain fast. If you aren't experiencing this post your issues (RC related only please!!) or PM me and we'll try to get you straightened out. This thing just plain rocks.

nose down issue over jumps

Normally is one or both of these (not in any order)

Butt slap << back end hitting the track hard enough to cause the front to drop in the air.

Fix(s) at rear
a. stiffer springs
b. stiffer oil
c. smaller holes or fewer holes in pistons

Drag Brake << motor slows (excessively) causes the front to drop

Fix(s)
a. Remove it from your ESC (set to 0%)
b. Turn up the throttle on your radio (throttle trim) << same as holding the throttle on a bit

I should have stated, I've added no drag brake. I'm not sure if/what my esc has in it for a factory setting, I'm running the Works Team Flow.

my daughter truck noses down at srs also if I try to scrub....so I dont bother and just throttle up the face. Kinwald told me the truck is too light. He has to add brass just to get to legal weight. But he added like 100+ grams of brass, lol. I am referring to the brass for your rear traction issues. And HT Tucson is not a high bite track and I am not sure I would rate it medium. More like blown out and rutted.

I mean, I'm yanking wheelies down the straights, in my sc and my buggy. The buggy is only a 10.5, so not stupid power. I'd say the bite can be pretty high.

I'm putting one of these together. This is my first kit ever. Right now I'm working on the body.
Do the vents in the side help at all? They are not as well defined as the vents on the hood and fenders so I'm unsure where to cut.

if you are talking about the vents on the doors, then no, they shouldnt get cut. If your talking about over the rear wheels on the back of the truck, then they will help a bit...but only if you do jumps.

the vent holes are primarily made for reducing parachuting on jumps

Yes. I'm talking about the doors. The hood louvers are coming along slowly. I already did the six on the fenders, the three behind the "driver" and the big one in the center of the hood.

So I bought these two items for the front spindle.

and
http://www.amainhobbies.com/rc-cars-...c71034/p449718

After assembly, the m4 locknut will clearly not fit. M5? I don't have one to try. I wish AE would state what locknut you need if it isn't the stock m4 locknut.

An M4 is the stock locknut that comes with the kit for all four wheels.

One of the axles I got had bad threads. AE sent me two axles to replace the defective axle and one of them had bad threads. This could be your issue.

Have you tried the brass c and d plates? I am going to drive mine for the first time today, when I ordered it I got a set of the 50 gram Yokomo under battery weights. Hope that helps with traction and forward bite. I noticed Cav ran bras at SRS. LRH is close to that much grip when they maintain the track, which will be much better come winter when its not so hot and humid. I just could not get my 22SCT 2.0 stuck enough in the corners for my aggressive driving style. Hoping the SC5M does a better job at sticking in the corners.
