Mine is nearly stock. What is it doing that you don't like?

We run 55/45 oil in ours for a track with some big jumps. I am currently running Gold springs in the front and soft green springs in the rear. I have all the turning, and handling I need.
What are your friends running. Are they taking the turns better and smoother. Look at their setup, and copy it for a good starting point.
I am definitely surprised in a good way how durable these SC10 trucks are. We beat the crap out of them yesterday for about 5-6 battery packs with no broken parts. That is a lot of 5' drops on the front and rear bumpers too.

Good luck,
Stephen

That makes a big difference, and explains the very heavy shock oil. Most people's setups are for typical off road tracks. All I can suggest for you, is a good sway bar.

I have to agree... running these trucks on asphalt is now a total different animal. I would go something like a 55f/65r oil & gold (F) Silver(R) just to start & a roll bar in the front(silver) depending if she pushes? Do they make a roll bar for the T4? I havent a clue. Hope that helps & good luck

Lower your truck a bit. It will help.

Default suspension tips

alright man, think about it like this, EVERYthing comes into play with handling, EVERRYYYTHING. throttle control, braking control, oil, springs, sag, rebound(springs), shock absorber, caster, camber, toe in/out, tires, battery placement(big one). blah blah blah.

so heres some quickies for you. see what tires your local racers are running. go from there.

SC trucks have shorter a arms so throttle control and steering control are KEY, the fastest motor at the track doesnt do jack if you cant keep it straight.

try google searching SC10 setup sheets. the pros are not shy about sharing theyre setups with everyone.

LINE selection is also key in driving on tracks, youtube SC10 racing to watch the pros and how they take turns. turns are where the races are won and lost.

even if you dont want to take gold in the SC olympics, its more fun when your driving good and not crashing and sliding out all the time.
