No, I don't race there. I race at Full Throttle in Green Island, NY.

I've been running this truck since it came and it's really good . I have box stock setup with the 25gram weight in the rear . The truck seems a little soft n the rear . Like it's transferring too much weight on the rear under acceleration. Pulling wheelies and taking weight off the fr . The rear is pretty much lock up with traction . I don't want takeaway traction but I think the truck could be better . I was thinking about moving the rear shocks out on arm or moving the hubs back some . Idk . Just looking for advice. I've won with the truck two races . It's on the same lap as the mod buggys but think it's got more n it thanks

I can't see how moving the shocks out on the arm will ffect front to rear weight transfer. You may want to look at anti-squat, less front droop or a stiffer rear shock package.

@Tlrracer - not sure what you mean but looks like your slipper is too tight. loosen your slipper it a bit.

Isn't going out on the arm going to make the shocks seem stiffer.there is a triple and double that u basically have to have ur slipper locked up to clear them .

I won't say it does not work, but so far I have only moved the shocks out to prevent traction rolling and slow down the steering. Maybe you should give it a try and tell the community about your experiences.

did you check that your diff is set right? it could be a bit too loose or you don't have motor to clear those jumps. i would consult with other local racers. there are many variables to look at.

usually when you decrease the angle of the shock (more laydown) you are decreasing the effect of damping your shock will have which may compound your weight transfer issue. A more upright shock with a heavier weight oil will help slow the transfer of weight to the rear of the truck.

The truck is not bad at all I've won the last 3 races with it . The last race i was really close to the mod buggys on heat times . I just feel like the rear is locked down and I have to wait to make the turns before picking up the throttle or it will push wide. U kinda have to point and shoot . Even going through the turns I feel like the rear is dipping over . I also thought about trying a shorter rear camber link or moving rear hubs back .my diff is tight the slipper is tight for clearing the triple also I have tekin 7.5 .

I race at 46rc. truck is setup all stock with 13.5. truck is great! save your money on 94mm. all you need is couple of shims on each. see me at the track if you have questions.

Issues mostly arise with the gear diff, as its outdrives are a tad short. But yes, some shims will solve the issue.

Can anyone tell me if a 22 4.0 buggy can be converted into a 22T without spending a ton of money?
