Mafiaracer,
Thanks for the advice, Like you said the rabbit hole does get pretty deep but that is a great straight foraward answer.
Now if I could just change my driving like changing camber links I would be DIALED!

Thanks again

Aaron, got a question for ya. Ran the AD2 for the first time this week, and I noticed that the motor takes a while to get back down to idle speed when you let off the gas. The idle is correct because after a couple seconds it slows back down to a slow "loping" idle. I played with the bottom end (richening) but the truck then got sluggish, any recommendations off hand?

It also seems like the motor has to rev up a bit before the truck will begin to move, and it jumps forward rather than creeping forward. What is the best thing to do to the clutch to make it feel more like an ESC . Thanks.

Sounds to me like you have too much drag break.

Check your clutch. Make sure you put the spring on correctly and that your shoes are facing the right direction.

if the motor takes a while to return to idle it could mean the carb is not sealed. I just learned about this, as its been giving me tuning problems and the idle is one of the tell tale symptoms

Easily the os engine, even though it's a .12 and the gt motor is a .15.
