IF it has too much steering dial out a bit of dual rate.
So the sheet says he: 'Ran old R/R suspension block #2'. What is the equivalent with the new stuff?
Do you know if he runs the 5mm mod on the front arms ?

I have ran my first race with my new V3 last weekend and EVERY qualifications and in the final a ball end pop out and ruined my race ( no crashes), I ran on a tight technical and slow track with littles jumps, ordered AE studs and rpm cups...Besides that pop out problem I love this buggy.Another question, do you put a spacer between the hex and the bearing when you tighten the wheels locknuts?

Alot of it. My saddles are about 70g heavier than my shorty packs. We already add weight to the rear with them.
I don't know about the car not being balance and twitchy I have been running mine with shorty pack on open MOD the car was really easy to drive and very nimble and its much lighter so it's easy on the motor... I set a new track record at my local track and I broke my own track record by .3 tenths with the same setup... just make sure the spacer you use is equal in size so your battery is dead center to balance the car left to right...

Can you post a pic of your battery set up?

Looks real clean. Nice job. It looks like the shorty fits almost perfect. I cant see any foam or spacers. Did you play with the weight locations on either side of the shorty?

Tried to fit my promatch shorty pack in, but it must be a tad longer. It wouldn't clear the front battery plate holddown tab on the rear center diff bulkhead. These are the packs I was using in my DESC410R shorty pack setup. Are people trimming the holddown tab on the center diff bulkhead to clear the shorty pack?

I had an slow day at work. Figure lots of people ask what the differences are between the versions of the buggy. Came up with this idea. What do people think ? anything I missed ? Is it useful ?

So i put lighter fluids in shock, shock limiters in front shocks, 10k front diff, 5k rear diff, adjusted camber and tow and added a little drag brake. This things drives like its on rails...no rear end sliding and just soaks up the jumps and woops. As for durability, i wont say its indestructable but i did tumble it a couple times and nothing broke. I got on the rail hugging a corner and stripped the cheap plastic servo arm. My fault for not installing an aluminum arm. Other than that, this buggy is the shizzzz. The geometry aand engineering that went into this is second to none.

Here's his updated V3 Nats setup. No we don't do a 5mm front arm mod.

I'm Using CRC 4200 Shorty pack it a little tight and you might need add a litle pressure when putting your battery in but other than that it's all good.
