What are the chances of getting his setup sheets posted?

I'll definitely try, he's out racing again this week so it might not be for a couple of weeks. I'll make sure it is up before the SCTE 3.0 ships though.

I was at Nationals this weekend and watched Mayfield destroy the field. Lutz put up a good fight but in the end Mayfield's truck was dialed.

As for the weight conversation I tend to agree that a little heavier works best outdoors......this didn't play out. No grip at the event and Ryan was dialed.

BTW, I currently run a Mugen MBX7R I created. It was 3070 grams. While once I got it correct it still wasn't as fast.

I will echo someone's comment that you can add weight where you want it later.

Lastly I watch Dakoda last year jump a huge double at "The Track" in MI. No issue. Landed it like a boss every time.

That's my observation.

I'd have to go back and look at fast laps from this weekend. Lutz was fast but Mayfield was too.

I'm on to you now!!!

No one is faster than Maifield in 4x SCT. No one.

They badly need to make truck specific springs like ae does, those shock collars are hanging on for dear life to keep that truck up.

I saw that as well, I was just curious as to who's truck Pillars was working on.

I'm not sure, I wasn't there.

I'm guessing that those of us with 2.0's can get the new 3.0 chassis and be able to have the adjustable motor/diff setup? Or would that require additional parts? I planned on getting it to be able to swap the battery and esc around, but wouldnt mind messing with the motor and diff angles some.

You'll also have to have the dog bone center drive and the 3.0 chassis braces.

3.0 braces are good but not "required" The 2.0 rods will work. The 3.0 chassis braces stiffen up the chassis a little more as they contact the chassis better and I would recommend them but not "required"

The 3.0 braces are built to properly hold the side of the battery, they really are part of the battery compartment. From a durability point of view, I wouldn't recommend running the 3.0 with out them.

Is this because you guys omitted the battery thumb screws?
I don't really get what your saying here, because my battery never moved an ounce on the 2.0. I can understand that it might be a helper for the cheaper pin holds on the 3.0 kit, but for us 2.0 guys with the clamping knobs I can't see how it would be any different when it comes to rigidity. I would venture to say the fact the chassis is 3mm shorter will automatically make things more rigid.
Also, I am confused by this anyhow. I recall a lot of people taking the braces off the rear to increase flexion to help with impact traction off a jump. But now everyone is after the opposite.

I was doing this mod about 5 months ago. It did help with the loose tracks having more weight up front.

In this picture the ESC was mounted up on a carbon plate for testing a heavier back weight, but I later drilled the front holes and shifted the whole battery forward like they are doing now, so I could set the ESC all the way down on the pan.

The battery mounts are flipped on the 3.0, the chassis is wider. So the battery mount holds the 'outside' of the battery now. The chassis braces hold the 'inside' of the battery. On the 2.0, the battery mounts held the inside of the battery and the mud guard held the outside of the battery.

Also, if you removed the rear chassis brace on the 2.0, you'd pop out the rear center driveshaft, and probably bend the chassis. I've never seen or heard of anyone doing this.
