I wound up breaking a pin with that setup though. If some has some or knows of a better way, I am all ears...

Thats part of the reason to run the shorty packs......... You'll drop almost a 100 grams off that weight and be able to adjust your weight bias more easily. My car is around 1630 with all stock hardware and steel turnbuckles. Put some titanium turnbuckles, titanium and aluminum screws and I should be just under 1600 which is good enough for me. I also dont run any extra weight and so far havent found the need to either.

Unless he gets the mounts for the ball studs to be further back than the way it is on this B4 version, it will still end up at an extreme angle although it will be a better solution than the current carbon shock towers. If you look at the 210's front tower, the ball stud location is even with the side of the tower.

well, you could turn it around. that extra 100 grams could be usefull in some situations. specially when our track is dry and dusty.

still with the rear motor setup I have almost an inch of room to play with the weight bias


most buggy's I see at our track are adding weights, B4, kyosho, losi 22, ansmann, X6 they all need extra weight at our track

TD is rather impressive! although not much of their 'rep' online to interact w drivers, they are actually pretty quick to address 'issues' and questions regarding their trucks on their website/blog.. and above all they had bothered to use pics/diagrams to help guys to better understand the setting up of the trucks..
a great help to newbies like me

keep up the good work TD!
