A bumpy indoor, but generally high-traction, track. 2K and 3K made it too darty. It wanted to claw all over under full acceleration (a "diff-out" issue perhaps?) 5K seems to make it go straight under hard acceleration.

5K doesn't seem to increase the tension by that much. It still steers just fine. Running a 4-gear rear motor configuration, by the way. Tons of rear traction but it still turns.

A little unconventional, I know. But don't be afraid to try new things to see if it works for you. Maybe it will work for you and your track and maybe not.

Really are you not going to browse through the pages here and find your answers? That question has been asked a lot, have a look.

turnbuckles? I heard about people running TC5 ones but supposedly the ball studs threads are too small to tread in

They fit fine. Thats what I was running on my old DEX410r along with rpm ball links. On my DEX210 i have not had any problems with the original HD links and see no reason to change them out.

ream the stock ends a tad so they have some clearance over the turnbuckles and the stock ones are fine.

+1 and if you put super strong ones in the rear your more than likely going to break the gear case instead of popping a cup off. Nothing wrong with the stock ones.

I'm still waiting for the red aluminum shock caps and gold front nitride shafts to get in stock. Also need a ball diff rebuild kit.

Would be nice to see the aluminum rear hubs and aluminum rear wheel nuts in stock somewhere too. Yesterday someone at the track broke a rear hub. Interesting break too. Snapped all the way across the top of the toe insert hole. Complete separation.

Marcus or anyone else using the TSR bladders...are you having an issue with the caps bleeding excress oil? Like, puking out and loosing half the shock capacity? One of the bladders will not seal. Was thinking of gluing them.
