You are correct young grasshopper.

Casper - You're allowed to use some of these terms incorrectly...an older, ghostly rocket scientist calling ANYTHING "dope" would be extremely hilarious.

Thank you great keeper and controller for those who use the versatile word "dope" with is many variations of dopeness!

I hope to be able to get my hands on one of these new
"even more super doper than way super dope" AD2 kits for x-mas!

I hope to have it dialed in, in time for the Nitro challange. I need to get out and do some gas racing here soon so I can keep up with you younger geneation "kids" since I am now a gray beard ghost and the ripe old age of 28!

Speaking of the AD2, what is the hot Dirt setup for the truck? Are you still running the std AD1 setup or has it changed now that the rear end is super hooked up?

I'm 18 and I feel oooooold..hahaha.

My dad says "dope" jokingly..it's frickin hilarious.

I wish I had pictures of my new truck..the body is out of control! I don't think anyone has really messed with AD2 setups yet. We've been running the typical Drake setup with short-arm in the rear, and the thing is a wheelie monster. I plan on switching to long arm to kill a little forward bite.

The stock setup is different than the original Drake setup, and works really well. The setup was developed at Revelation and Perris, and Adam said it was very good at both of those tracks.

Thanks Aaron.

No problem dude.

Just remember..the truck won't turn without the front tires on the ground. And the scariest part? You can tune the truck to have even MORE forward bite. Sheesh!

Aaron - Will the rear hubs be offered seperately or only in LOSA9816 as a pair?

Any tips for ball studs broken off in aluminum hubs?

I was thinking about hitting each of the studs with a dremel prior to installation so that I have a ready made slot to take them out if they break. I am a bit worried about weakening them.

Ok I am a complete newbie and do not even have my truck yet, but I do have some questions.

1. what is a transponder and why would you use a dummy one?

2. I am getting a xxx-t rtr 2 and I was wondering what is a good first upgrade?

3. I was reading about something from a company called spectrum that operates in the 2.4 area. Have you heard of these and if so are they any good?

Thanks for your time.

A transponder is something you put in your car to count your laps during a race. It will also give you accurate lap times. If you are worried about the extra weight of the transponder effecting the handling of your car you can put a dummy transponder in during practice so your car had the same weight distribution as race time. Dummy transponders are used more in onroad thing then in offroad thing.

First upgrade.... Tires that work at your track and a good stock motor and then just practice.

The spectrum module will require you to get a new radio first. The system is only being used by factory drivers right now but the reports are outstanding. I would say in the super dope to way super dope catagories as previously discussed! Stick with what came with the truck for now and save your money for other things you will need.

Thanks for the help.

What would be a good stock motor?

My god I think this is going to become like paintball for me. I can see it now me spending $300 a weekend not to mention tournaments or in this case races.

Yeah you can get like that ($300/ weekend of racing) but it does not have to. Most club races only cost me the $20 in entry fees. Tires to now wear very quickly at my home track and tires are usually the largest expense for a big race.

A good stock motor. Well that will vary from who you talk to. For truck the P2K2 is a great motor. The Monster stock is very popular right now. I prefer the Orion Core/Peak Hellfire. You cannot go wrong with any of these.
