yes rt5 and scr turnbuckles are the same.
offset will make the truck feel different. wider usually makes a vehicle feel more stable. if you run a wider rear and you will actually loose traction. a wider front would pick up a push.also if i remember correctly the sc r and rtr used the widest offset available i think everything else was more narrow.

Nice wrench but a bit pricy. I will do some digging around for something half the price.

do certain brand motors run hotter that others? I run speedpassion esc and a speedpassion 7.5...On a warm day I cant run more than 5mins without it reaching 160..I like to keep my motors running cool...I am geared 81/17. Also,I have no timing set..

how cool do your motors run on a warm day? Do esc's effect motor temp..what is the target fdr for the scr?

I run a hobbywing esc with an x-12 lrp motor geared 17-82 with no timing or boost or nothing. In a 95+ degree humid day I see about 140ish. I electrical taped all the holes in my motor the other day although it was a bit cooler day I didn't go pass 127 after a 8 main. What's the timing on the motor end bell? Mine is at -10 degrees.

Then perhaps it's just normal for speed passion to run on the hotter side? There is a thread some where here under the electric section about off road esc settings

Ps is your motor open? If so check your bearings. Mine is and let's too much dirt in locking the bearings making it run warmer



This looks funny but my bearings didn't lock this time and it didn't even run hot at all.

Im running a Ballistic 17.5 with a gtb2 and ive had to had to add 9.5 ounces of weight to get the planted feel that i like in the truck. Running on really hard packed soil with a bit of dusty on top. The truck now handles like a dream, i know adding that much weight may seem to be crazy but it has worked for me so far, Just thought i would post my findings.

If your motor is "open" or slotted to allow airflow, maybe you could try some of this self-adhering tape that would at least allow a little airflow. http://www.acebrand.com/wps/portal/3...gl4TW8S08GCHbl
We used to use a similar product back in the day, on brushed motors, that they sell in farm and feed stores, that came in different colors to wrap horses ankles (could not find a link for it though).

those looking for the blue battery tubes,I used the set for the lazer fs2..4 come in the package and only minor mod to get them to work..I simply shave about 2mm off the end of the battery strap that goes into the rear bulkhead.. Good fix for those that want to use the gunmetal
