I need better chassis brace in the back. It would be nice if Tekno can make the chassis brace mount up to the rear tower instead of the bulkhead, in aluminum!. This way the brace doesn't break off the bulkhead. The rear chassis brace where it mounts to the rear bulkhead doesn't have much plastic. I snapped both rear braces twice yesterday at revelation raceway. I was even using m2c brace support with it.

Try a longer screw and see if that helps. That seems to be the fix people are using. I think I'm using a 14mm screw.

In my opinion with my own testing 8x1.3 Flat pistons are the ticket. JB wicked weekend setup is what I run. 3x2.1 wont give the pack necessary taking in consideration the weight of truggy. 700f 600r or 650f 550r with colder weather. I ran rear HRC this past weekend on my ET48.3 and they were $$$. Truck was over rotating on corners mid to exit and the HRC hubs locked in the rear. I was able to push it harder on exit.

Awesome thanks, I have the HRC hubs on the way to try, I have also just ordered a ET48.3 so looking forward to testing that

I never have broken a rear brace or mount on any of the vehicles. With that said, I no longer run rear braces on any of my vehicles.

Has anybody tried the hrc hubs on the nt? I'm wondering because I did and I thought the truck felt looser in the rear with the hrc hubs. I was wondering if anybody else had feedback on the hrc hubs on the nt? I'm running Joe's AMS 7.0 setup.

Perfectly normal observation to me, the effect sounds right.

Makes sense, should be a little looser off-power and more locked in on-power. If it's too loose off power you can go up on the inner camber link location.

So do the hrc hubs have more effect on the roll center than the link position on the tower? Too, I'm wondering if raising the links on the tower while using the hrc hubs would be better than leaving the links as is and going back to the original rear hubs?
