Don't be sad now that I have it Lets blame it on the stiff radio wheel shall we?

The rest of the hop-ups aren't really critical though the plastic rear skid plate tends to collect a lot of dirt so the brass weight replacement is a decent hop-up to pick up.

Wiring it is a bitch but you'll feel like a bad ass once you get if figured out.

And I'd recommend using an ESC with a heat sink or fan because this car runs hot. I'm using the LRP TC spec.

The Rango is my favorite car to drive - by far. And I have some nice cars.
Cool, thanks for the update! I just picked me up a schu cat sx2... so now i got me a little 4wd to run with the rango's!

Happy Driving!

I have tried the 2 hole in the rear. Even with 20W losi oil it just seemed too stiff for my local track. The 3 holes are much better for the rear o fthe car unless you run on a track which is high traction and smooth as glass.

Yes, that could be part of it, having to fight the steering wheel

Someone posted similar issue a few days ago in this thread. Follow the Oople review article for best build results is what I am told . . .

You gotta break them in as well... metal on metal is going to make noise until it is broken in.

I only have a 0.1 shim(gold one) on the case side of the diff. Read a post on oople from team driver Adam S. and he is running either the 0.2 or 0.1 only on the case side, just have to play with it since not everyone is going to be the exact same.
