Exclamation Thunder Tiger ST-1 Pro

Hi guys,

Does any one has some experience with this truggy?
I was looking for a decent setup which will keep the rear end more planted.
The diff I used is 7k/10k/2k for Front/Center/Rear.

Any advice/experience is appreciated for this tough truggy!!
I got the feeling that the car is used more in the bashing arena's and not at the race tracks.

Many thanks in advance for your opinions!

I ran a race with it yesterday.
Got TQ during qualifications and became 2-nd in final caused by engine problem.
The car is quite capable and just need some tuning.
I ran it with stock components and settings, using 35 WT at the rear and 45 at the back.
To my liking, the car is too nervous.
After the apex, when exiting a turn, the rear end is quite twitchy.
Before you know it, you will do a 180 degree if you re not carefull with the throttle.
In long mains, it will cause you the consistent lap times.

I'll try to go heavier in the front diff and will use 10k as well then.

Hi,

I'm running a TT ST-01. Just did a race previous weekend. To me, my truggy handled ok. Not ok is me, the driver . I'm using stock setup with 5K/10K/1K diff fluid & 35/50 shock fluid. Was runnng in third until the clutch gave me problems.

Here are some pics :






BTW, the super big bore Jammin' shocks works wonderfully on the truggy. The steering mod is also very useful too.

Thumbs up

Joeling,

Tx a lot for the link and info.
My bad, I meant 35WT at the rear and 45WT at the front.
When using the diff oil 7k/10k/2k for F/C/R, the rear end would slip away after teh apex when you are a bit too hard on the throttle.
I'm looking for a setup which will make the rear more planted.

I'm interested in the steering mod.
What is the result of this steering mod?
It will turn in better, but when? Off throttle, on throttle?
