You're running 13.5? What did you gear it at?

Anyone try setting up the front end with 4mm trail? When I set mine this way the wheels hit the front of the a-arms when turned full. And yes my front end is built correctly per the stock setup. I compared mine to someone else's and both are the same. He didn't have this same issue.

I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing this.

Ah, that's good to see. I dropped it down from the stock 82T to a 78/22. Tomorrow will be my first time out with it on a track, so I plan on playing around with the 22/23/24t pinions.

I started with what was recommended in the manual. 7.5T with a 17 pinion I believe, stock spur.

Biggest temptation to me was the rear body posts being moved. It was such a pain to put pins in the 3.0. I can say that after the 27g rear brass weight was put on it handled like a dream. I feel that this truck is pretty nimble with quick turning all while staying planted.

I have that one still as well. Something about that truck, I just couldn’t part with it. I was going to use the electronics out of it for the 4.0 and couldn’t even bring myself to do that.

Thanks for the heads up. I built a 2.0 about two years ago but never ran it, and sold it a couple months later. The winter got too busy at the time.

Finally got mine out to a track last night. Settled on 78/22 for gearing on astroturf. Was still worried that the rear shafts would pop out of the cup (See earlier pictures), but they stayed planted all night long, even off of some bigger jumps. I did break one of the turnbuckle arms though, so my night was cut short, but so far I'm very happy with how it handles on a high grip surface.
