I know 28mm ride height too high the owner of our local track is recommended all SCT minimum is 28mm ride height we can't do nothing.

I was able to turn a lot of laps at indoor track yesterday. Using the aluminum shock collar adapters and the 2.0 TLR tuning springs worked out great. I had too much steering after being setup for outdoor track with less traction. Still only .4 off the fastest lap on the the current layout held by local pro with Tekno. I was burning laps to learn the layout and test springs. Black front and Red rear worked great and I plan to test others. Any adjustments I make to take some steering out will only improve my lap times.

I used box setup but with lipo up front using middle screw holes on lipo holder. The 2.0 TLR tuning springs are night and day better than the kit springs. Suspension action looks good on the track and truck doesn't bottom out easy. Ride height holding at 25mm using slightly smaller tire, Barcode.
The Kyosho spring is same size with SCTE 3.0 no rubbing at all. I'm running the battery in front moved all the way in front and ESC orion r10.1 is in rear with 20 grams under the ESC because the motor side is heavier than battery side. Also the battery is move closed to chassis brace.

That is a ridiculous rule that violates the point of having all the adjustments these expensive vehicles offer. I would highly protest the rule, or I'd run somewhere else. Who ever heard of such nonsense.
So what happens when someone's springs start to sag? They DQ you?

I know a lot of racers SCT complaining because of that radiculous ride height. Well i set my ride height 30mm i know it going to sag and if you can't pass your ride height you may disqualify for the race.

From what I understand it is a ROAR approved track. File a complaint with ROAR, because I don't think they can do that under that sanction for point events. It's total BS

A lot of carpet astro tracks have ride height restrictions to try and keep cars from tearing up the surface but that is a little over the top.

Default Front shock tower

Hey dudes, is the 3.0 front shocktower the same as the 2.0 shock tower?

The front tower is the same. The rear tower changed for the 22 shocks.

How's the durability and slop compared to the previous iterations?

Really interested having owned SCTE 1.0 with every aftermarkets upgrade under the sun...

This truck never really developed a lot of slop IMO other then in the steering rack. The new ball bearing steering helps reduce that.

Slop in rod ends is no longer a concern on the 3.0 truck. I have had to squeeze my rod ends and use dry lube to keep them moving free. Best rod end fit we have ever seen on any version of this truck. Ball bearing ackerman plate comes standard and finishes off the steering slop to zero. Both of these areas have finally reached a point of perfection for me. The older sloppy parts we used in the past will soon be a faded memory.

Ring gear and pinion mesh does require more shims or it does on the newer trucks I have seen with updated gears. They are so much better than the older gears and once set for minimum backlash they are great. So smooth after a few laps.
