I see. That is a great tip. I like the body lower to the chassis.

Gene you can do the same with the stock mount.

How does the body fit with the mount that low? Mine would hit the rear shock tower and not even touch the mnt.

I'm wondering how the J concepts MBX5t body would work with the rear mount lowered? It looks likes there is clearance for the rear shock tower to lower the body in the back.

The Jconcepts MBX5T body is one I know will work with the post that low. I'm sure there are others, but this one work for sure. I think the Jconcepts Jammin body should work also.Check out this link for more pictures and info.

During my racing today, I broke the screw that holds the bushing in the acerman plate. How many of you have replaced the bushing with the flanged bearings as described earlier in the thread? How much difference does it make in handling/smoothness?

The truck was awsome today! I hung on the same lap with the experienced leaders most of the day.

Well, second race today for me with the TR Arena. I like the clutch setup I used this time around; CEN flywheel, engine nut and and stock 13T clutchbell, Dynamite Max-life Aluminum Clutch Shoes and Mugen 1.0 springs.

It handled the bumps, jumps and rough stuff well; but I need to get more turn in and I had a problem with the right front dogbone coming out of the drive cup.

Are you using the inner shock mount hole on the front arm? It should never pop out there. But if you use the middle or outer hole, I suggest using the long shock end to limit the uptravel. That will stop the CVD from poping out also.

I just cut 2 holes in my practice body where the shock mount hits and I think this is a winner!! body looks like it bellongs there.

Default Hey guys

Hey guys you know how in the kit they give you a little white contaner filt with diff grease. Well I have been running 2-5-1 in my diffs and today I decided to try out the diff grease they give you with the kits. I put the grease in my front and rear diff. I will now be running grease-5k-grease. I will see how it does.

Out of town for work, so I don't have the truck in front of me, but it is the RTR with most of the aluminum ugrades added.

Setup is still pretty much stock and thus the front shocks were in the outer most holes on the front arms.

I don't know what size the shock end is (short or long), but it is whatever came on it with the RTR.
