I have the STRC jammin parts on my hyper 10sc with the bearings and it is silky smooth and not to mention bullet proof. This is definitely on my list of upgrades for my TT. My STRC kit comes with 2 upper servo saver pieces. One looks to be a lot thicker than the other. I know the "tips" thread on rcshortcourse says not to use the Jammin upper half but mine has worked well with the thicker strc aluminum upper arm (the one that goes directly to the servo). Hope this helps.

EDIT: Apparently I can't even post links to other rctech threads, but it should be post 3829 in the Hyper10SC forum.
Here is the link for you.

Default sweet!

ran it at the track today, and it is easy to drive! no bad habits that bug me. my older ss5800 gave up but it was on its way out i think. i'll ordered some pinions, so i can try my 6.5 again. also thinking 4.5 550 mnight be a good choice?

For those of you still on the fence about these things, all I can say is dont wait, go buy one. I finally got to use mine for the first time today and all I can say is WOW. Such a fun truck to drive.... and they handle like they are on rails especially if you are used to short course recently.

I ran the Sidewinder SCT system in it and its got all the power it needed. I was running the box stock suspension/diff setup just with Caliber tires which are the hot ticket at this track. I ran the truck today on a track that is about 125 feet wide and 70 feet deep so its pretty big. The truck is also durable. I head-on'ed an 1/8 buggy at the end of the straight (he was parked) and the hyper was fine. The only thing that happened all day was I did pop a ball cup off of the spindle so I will be doing the captured pin mod here soon. Anyways, if youre on the fence, dont wait... go buy one!

I ran mine yesterday, two 5 min heats and a 6 min main. Despite how tight and crunchy the pinion to crown mesh is, I didn't notice any ill effects. I'll hafta to a tear down during the week though, I can't stand this and hafta see if I can find a way to make em work together more nicely.

Thumbs up yo!

well i smoked my poor ss 5800 but i got a novak balistic 5.5 and a 15 tooth, it barely gets warm. no track test untill this weekend, but i can tell you the 550 is the way to go. they also have a bigger front bearing and a 5mm shaft, so you can use 1/8 scale pinions!

I was actually referring to two hardcase 5000mAh stick packs for some crazy 4S setup, but I'll keep that in mind as well. I can make a custom LiPo tray if I need to. Do you mind taking the dimensions for me?

2 2s lipos wont fit in the case. i tryed doing that and you would have to cut one side of the tray off for them to fit

Ok, I wouldn't mind doing that either, could probably do it on the inside wall and then put a velcro strap across. Dimensions please? L x W x H if possible
