Yes that is entirely too light on everything!!
- start off at 1k CST on shock oils with stock pistons
- 1500CST with RCShox 2 stage (highly recommended)
- 500k on front dif**
- 100k on centerdif
- 10k on rear dif
- 2*front toe out
- 4* front camber
- 3*rear camber
- 2.5* rear toe (RCShox RF pivot block)
- stock antisquat
- Stock swaybars
- highest RC adjustment in front
- lowest in rear
- 9f/10R ride height
Upgrades that you should consider:
- RCShox 2 stage pistons
- RCShox ballbearing ackerman bar(lessens slop and optimizes the ackerman effect)
- RCShox mini arm braces
- TeamC 10* C hubs
- TeamC aluminum chassis braces
** when building the difs you really want the front dif to be as close to a spool as you can get. IF you actually spool it it works the best but wears out the drive pins quickly. So when you build the front dif use 500k fluid and double shim the spider gears, on the flip side you want the rear to be as free as you can get it so remove the spider gear shims.
Another tip is to completely fill the dif with fluid , it will stay more consistent and last much longer.
As most of you know i have been working with this platform for almost 2 years now!
here is a vid of this setup on a VERY loose track, i realize its nitro but the tendencies are the same. i was also driving a bit aggressive hence the rear stepping out but even when it steps out its very controllable.
BTW that body is for sale 75.00 shipped and that was the only time it was ran!
