Rear hubs are the kit plastic. I haven't found an answer to the difference in handling between the long vs short steering arms that come with the kit. Have the long ones on, will the short ones tame the steering or make it even worst?...
We saw with lighter oil more rear grip relative to the rotation, the rear end didn't want to step out like it was doing hence making it feel more consistent and less twitchy to us at least, since the rear was breaking free too easy.

You are running all 4 gears? In the shin setup it mentions 2 from what I recall, I would go down in oil if sticking with 4 gears then for sure. I think when doing 2 versus 4 gears I seem to recall I was at almost half in oil weight, so 15K gear I would probably do 7K in 4 gear feel wise. You will have to play with that.

As mentioned by mes, negative expo can be an option too (some spektrum radios the opposite value is used to calm it down, don't know why)

One other thing, as for roll centers in comparison to the guide I posted versus what I think the hudy setup books have, there is a discrepency on the effect. I reached out to the creator of the helper sheet about this and he mentioned what they were seeing versus what the hudy book was saying was different. Again, I think its this section in question, which would explain why from what we are seeing by adding in more shims under the front tower ball stud we are seeing a decrease in steering into the corner and the car being less responsive. Good thing is its a quick change to try.

Get the 87mm bones or whatever they are instead of the 89mm . 89mm stockers bind up against the diff we found when running the diffs risers.

For carpet, the shin setups on petitrc work very well.

you may like the LC tranny to try versus the LD I beleive it comes stock with.
does the lc trans case work without modification? I know it would be missing the front two screws.

You need the larger idler Z2-503IC and the LC case. Bolts right in, all the holes are there.

Having a bit of a problem with the ballcups rubbing really badly using jconcepts rims. It seems like the yokomo ballcups are way too thick. Has anyone tried the angled cups? Or is there a thinner 5.5mm cupnout there other then running ae cups on the steering tie rods.

I have a simple question for the group.
Are there any bodies available beside the "stock" JConcepts body that is kind of hard to find in stock?
Something that will fit and NOT look like a turd that is!

Bodies are cross compatible with the T6.1 and Xray XT2 '19.I just bought an Xray body for my son's truck, but I am looking forward to the JConcepts Finnisher the team used at the ROAR nationals.
