I did put team Thornhill red bump stops in the rear to keep the chassis from slapping so hard if I don't land the jumps right and they work incredibly well.
In looking at the Low-Frequency Springs it looks like they are a thicker diameter wire and longer because they are for SCT. Unless I'm looking at the wrong springs PN# TKR6104, these are the fronts. Do I use these for the rear and the fronts then? Sorry, I'm a noob to all this stuff.

Default Carbon Front Tower

What options do I have for a carbon front tower? Just finishing up the build and put the Team Joey Racing rear carbon tower for more camber link adjustment. Want a matching front but canít seem to find one. Thanks in advance.

I am giving some serious consideration into getting one of these, i am UK based which obviously means astro, can you guys give me a bit of a heads up with pros and cons, is a slipper an absolute must etc? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Get the heavy roll bars F&R, stiffer springs, centre diff works great (usually filled with 500k), low ride height (12-13mm, even if bumpy), i liked running no rear chassis brace (but risking chassis tweak doing so). It may not carry the most cornering speed but can be really easy to drive, handles bumps well and is at easily as durable as anything else out there.

My eb410.2 runs on a dirt track. Well, it's practically a sandbox. Drives well, no issues there. But the battery... So much sand gets around the battery that it takes several minutes to remove it every time, using tools to pry it loose, empty sand, pry again, shimmy, pry, etc.... This is a huge PITA, but if the battery started to melt down it would take the whole car with it since there is no way to remove it quickly.

Are there any alternative battery hold-down systems? I am using a Gens Ace Redline 5100 shorty pack. I am even considering going with a 22x-4 or RC10 B74.1d, and that's just silly, no?

Thanks!

If that much sand gets around the battery, how does your motor fare with all the sand?

I'd say 3m tape some hooks on the lipo so you can pull it out easier. I have a hard time taking mine out even with no sand.

I had the same issue - I machined the rear battery mount to take a little material off it and the batteries are easier to get out.
Also the battery makes a difference - the HV shorties from RCJuice are easier to get out than the Non-HV shorties that they sell.

I found the tool that Traxxas includes with many of its cars for assembling the joint in the slider axles works well to pry the battery out. It is just a very thin, very hard piece of steel.

I do not want to see the inside of that motor! But it hasn't been an issue so far. It's a Tekin Gen4 mod motor - if it does an early sandy death I'll go with something much cheaper next time.

I have been using Tesa tape, its a fabric tape used in VW/Audi wire looms. It lasts a couple battery swaps, not too bad.

Thanks! I'll try shaving some material off the rear mount and see where that gets me. If that doesn't help I'll try those batteries.

Are there any rumors of updates to this chassis any time soon? Looking at one for the indoor clay track. I have a sct410.3 and really like the build style (large parts) and overall rugged quality of the tekno stuff. I had a ET410.2 for the outdoor season but that class didn't translate well to the indoor track.

I don't need latest and greatest and I like a car that is easy to drive. I like to race as a form of relaxation and socialization and don't ever really need to get on the podium to have fun. But I want cars that finish and don't drive on the ragged edge of traction.

I've owned the current 22x4 and a previous 74.1 as well.

Is there any way to keep dirt out of the spur gear and pinion gear? Is there a cover or anything?
