Default Diff air cleaner

Couldn't find any info or missed it. Is there a air filter kit you can link me to for the SH28. The stock cen either blocks the brake linkage or covers the hi speed depending on how I turn it. No lhs here to snoop in. TIA

4. it looks like you are running proline LPR crimefighters. do you use these on grass?

Thanks for your time.
The stock front and rear hub carriers are fine. They are also lighter thaqn aluminum.

Hi ! :

1.- Just tested the toe out setting on grass for the first time, ON GRASS its enough for me to have a very agile truck, on the infields where i need the car to turn very sharp i just use weight transfer front/back using little accel/brake so the truck when have front suspension compressed turns very very well. Cant say if im gonna end with this or more toe out in front.

2.- I just mounted the stock hubs because i think alum ones are not needed, the stock are very good quality and are lighter than CNC ones.

3.- Just routed the fuel line more or less per manual to test it in stock form, it will get better lol !!

4.- Nope, they are half offset standar MT wheels and tyres. And yes, i use them on grass without problem, other tyres with bigger pins just get too much traction for my taste.

cya !!

I have a brand new center diff pulled from a rtr Matrix buggy kit. It is complete except the brake outdrives. Includes the metal spur, internal gears, al diff cup etc. Let me know if you have an extra tr arena spur for trade. Thanks!

Cen racing website has setups for the TR

The only thing I would upgrade right away is the steering bellcrank, the stock plastic one won't last long, then as your skill level increases, you can start upgrading other parts. Pooldoc

I would also replace your front knuckles with the red, this will save you money in the long run. I also reenforced my front camber link as described earlier in this thread.

If you get a few minutes, try to read through this thread. There are many useful tips from various drivers.
