Brandon - What style pack are you using?

Team Associated - Most of the team drivers use a basically stock Factory Team truck. As kingjz said, taking the aluminum arms off will help in the handling department, and will make the truck more durable.

I'm not a real fan of the K&N filter, but that's my opinion. I use the Ofna 1/10-sized air-filters, which are down-sized 1/8th scale filters, and they work really well. The stock filter that comes with the truck works great as well.

As far as shocks go, some of the team guys run Progressive Piggybacks on their shocks, or simply use Yokomo shock bladders (AE uses them in their TC shocks as well). They will make the shock easier to build, and a little more consistent.

From what I've seen, the Pro-Line GMC Sierra body is the best handling one available for it as well.

I use the yokomo shock caps with the bleeder screws. You can get 2 of them for $3.

The bladders work also but they add more positive pressure to the shock and you will have to compensate with shock oil weights.

You can also drill the caps and add a fitting and run a piece of fuel tubing between the shocks, fill the tubing with oil and over pack the shock with oil, it works as a poor mans progressive shock system. The gs fuel tubing seems to work the best its the most flexible.

I have played with all the shock setups I could think of and many setups from others and I have come up with using the yokomo caps and mip blue shock o-rings as bieng the best shock for the GT.

I think Jared was only using the piggybacks on the front of his truck this weekend.

HI all.

Just a quick one for the pro's.

I just got a new truck. Sorry not a Losi.

But I ran it a couple of times. No problems. Then I changed to a p94 motor. And it was like I had a radio problem with no control. 1st corner with a few cars in front and me on the inside. Flat out. Luckily I missed all them but not the fence. And no I wasn't living up to my user name as first thought.
The only thing I changed was the motor. What on a motor can cause this problem. And How do I fix it.

Thanks Heaps.

Brandon - It may seem like a tight fit but they should make it in there with a little coaxing. Have you tried flattening the battery bars at all?

ybakoff - Did you solder the capacitors on the motor? I never ran one of the P-94 motors, only the D5-D6 style endbells with the circuit board capacitors.

nitrokid - I would start at 20/88 and work your way from there.

Deans 3.0 bars stick out a lot farther then any other battery bar. Switch those out with some Trinity or Orion bars and your packs will fit fine.
