i'd use the velvets but if you have a set of losi's layin around mount'em up and try'em.
My spare losi shocks went on Axial and HPI cars.

I added weight in the back and I'm up to almost 3.5 oz under the rear shock tower. I also went from -1 rear camber to -3. Those changes have made the truck way better in the corners. I am able to run pretty smooth now. I will keep working on the settings etc... might remove some weight from the front to make it more balanced.
Thanks

I am about to finally get to race this truck, and was wondering which setup I should start with for a very high bite wet clay track. The track is medium in size (80ft straight), and the clay gets very tacky. We usually run clay or gold compound tires like bar codes, and switches. Thanks for the help.

i personally like to run all my cars with the stock setup and go from there, other guys like to start with one of the tebo setups. so its really up to you where to start, there are lots of setups at petit rc

I always ran slash rears on my SC/R unless ya want a lil more offset, then go with the slash fronts.

Silly question but not sure about it. When you set ride height do set it with battery on or off truck.

Normally I would agree, but the stock springs on the SC-R are waaaay too stiff. So I did the Tebo setup.
