Hey Rid,what type of dry lube do you recommend? Thanx!

Not sure about Lunsford but Dubro makes some, they are bullet proof. I bought a bag of 24 and have swapped out as needed, sorry bro no part number.

I do just fine keeping them clean no lube etc.. but I'll admit I have spent a little less time maintaining my scte than my other trucks.. so far it's been a set it and forget it type vehicle to some extent. I don't wreck much (at least prior to the pin issue and the endo's) and tyipcally run 1,2 (even w/ the issue) but I'll give you I've had some hard landings.. as I noted 'two triples' and one is a platform triple and the other is just a large 1/8 scale triple that you bearly make on a tight line. On the comparison vs stock pins.. I've bent two titanium, zero stockers in 6 mos. so my math comes out a little different and will be sticking w/ stock for now. I'm just glad I figured out what was wrong, it was frustrating endo'ing off even easy jumps at times... let alone the big ones, not to mention brutal to my body and bumpers.

I am running a Mamba max pro with a tekin sc 5.5 on 5500mah 60c with a 14tpinion on stock spur.

Would any of you know what could be causing this problem? It's been running fine days before but i just have no idea whats going on now. Could the esc or motor gone bad? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks!
Well could be a couple things..one your soldering skills are might not be the best, a poor solder can cause an esc or motor to run over 20 degrees warmer. Also can cause the solder joints to melt off. Next you may have a bad bearing somewhere, this will cause the truck to work a lot harder to get going. Pull the motor out and roll your truck on the ground it should roll nice and smooth. Next it could be you lipo has too low a C rating causing heat to build up.
Those are my queses.

Ride height is the height of the chassis, off the ground. I just looked at Losi.com and saw the following for each:

Truhe has -1 front and rear camber (tilt inward), and 28mm front height and 31mm rear ride height.

Dunford has -0.5 front camber and -1.5 rear camber, and 30mm front ride height and 28mm rear ride height.

If you're seeing something different, then try to re-download the setups or update Adobe Reader. If this is what you're actually seeing, then you might be misunderstanding what the settings are/mean..

I like the same as Truhe, -1 f/r cambers, bout 3' out on front toe, 28mm front 29-30mm rear, I run full droop in the front ~89mm and 101mm rear as well.

No, he is correct. One of the setup sheets are wrong. I don't remember which one but I pointed it out about 800 pages ago and it never did get corrected.

We have all mostly gone to what I will refer to as the Aaron Lane setup. Sometimes we change out oil and all but the ride height is 27mm before body front and rear. This is not on bumpy tracks though, we raise it up for those.

I just went through my truck and used the Cactus Classic setup. It looked too stiff in the rear to my eyes. Glad I saw this. I'll drop the rear end down a few mm.

BTW: What is the pitch of the thread on the shocks?
