I found a thread for it . They also make the top shaft adapter to convert it but you have to use the offset motor spacer if you dont have one.

Just put the Avid slipper in my SCR with the Avid topshaft. Fit and finish is awesome and it worked flawlessly. It has a wider range of operation and did not fade or lock up during racing. I was very glad to to have it as the track I raced last weekend was very dusty and loose for 2wd cars.

If you are using the stock Kyosho slipper make sure you are using the big red slipper pads for the extra torque load due to the large tires. Also check your pads periodically to make sure they are not glazed over. You can freshen up old pads with fine grit sand paper or scrape the glaze off with an exacto knife.

Did you find that it worked better than the Kyosho slipper?

There are a few guys on the RB6 thread that have used the Triad slipper as well with good results.

[QUOTE=Mr.juarez;11858293]Nothing else in front? I currently have the front strc metal hubs on the outer position, is that the caster I want? I'm using the middle position on the bulkhead as I broke a ball stud in half on the inner side.[/

Im confused He asked about changing anti-squat which is the rear. When you say 'nothing in front', what are you referring to?

How much extra weight should I be adding when I run the open class? Running a 7.5 no timing

Not fully compressed, it needs to be uncompressed enough so that it still "contains" the bearing. Too compressed, and the bearing has nothing to sit in. Run it JUST like the manual says, but CA glue the two halves of the servo saver together before you install it all. Make sure its glued nice and true, and it doesn't take much, you don't want extra CA dripping down the inside of the servo saver. Once dry, install like the manual and only compress the spring as much as directed.

There is no one answer for how much weight to run in your truck... it 100% depends on the grip level of your track. On a loose track with low grip, you would run more weight to increase traction. On a very high traction track, you may want a lighter truck to take away traction....

I just got an sc-r but still have some sc10 tires. What is the difference in the wheels? I will slowly buy the kyosho wheels but have a lot of good sc10 wheels left

SC10 wheels have less offset. They make the track width narrower, which makes the truck change direction quicker, but make it more sketchy.

Any ideas of how much different the offset is? Perhaps I could just put in a shim. Buying all new tires is a lot of coin.

By a big margin. I would say about 8-10mm. I tried running SC10 Hazard wheels with +3 offset and it was still noticeably narrower.
