I've been running a CRC 6100 55c and it an awesome battery, been using for 6-7 weeks now with no issues. Mmp/tekin 4.5. Savox servo.

i run bump steer up. as from what i was told you want bump steer up in "rough" tracks.(correct me if im wrong) stock i believe they come with bump steer down just flip both up like i did. the ones you should be messing are the ones by the bell cranks next to the anchorman arm. if you mess with the outer one which i did by mistake the rod end binds with the arms where the ball end cap is supposed to be instead.

So so far, these batteries have cost me 3 races (well...actually 2 but since I didnt get what I paid for I had to use a turnigy for the 3rd!).

I ordered some Nanotech 6000 packs. I had a good experience running those turnigy 5200's for a year so I'm going to give their nano-techs a try

i finally got to run my nanotech 6000/65C last weekend. after hitting a very conservative lipo cutoff (7.4v in pack), the pack took 6178mah. so far very impressed.

Yep- awesome battery! Had one since March and it is as good as the day I got it. Great power and long run times. 8 min mains with plenty left to spare running a RX8/2650 on my SCTE.

They are the same setup except for a ride height tweak. This is a high bite smooth setup. Not saying it won't work in other conditions as we ran it on a wet outdoor track with great results but if you are running on a large 8th scale track with ruts and bumps casey's setup might be better.

Sorry read my post you quoted ,I didn't mean you ment I thought opposite.




Casper , maybe you can explain this as your far more knowledge able on the set up then I am . We spoke before about these two set ups. In my findings I felt the lane set up was very stable ,great traction , more corner speed ,but couldn't rotate that well . Then with peck set up it feels it can rotate a lot better,still stable in corners ,little less traction but not bad.


From what I can see peck set up would be best on a small track ,as it rotates a lot better for 90's and 180's .

Lane set up works better on bigger tracks as you don't need the rotation like you need on small tracks.you can hold throttle more in long corners. Good traction for high speed .

I know set ups are different track to track ,person to person ,so I'm just trying to understand your thinking on this .

I run the lane setup on some pretty tight tracks. I agree that going to 5K in the front diff will let it steer some more on tighter tracks but with good traction the heavier diffs really help with acceleration. On a more blown out or rutted track the lighter diffs will allow the drive train to soak up more stuff and keep the truck more stable.

Again guys no one size fits all here. We all have different driving styles and different wants to how a car runs so this is not going to be for everyone. No setup is or should be. We have three guys that have worked hard to develope the lane setup and we all have slightly different driving styles but all are going very fast with it. We are 1-3 in the standings for the JBRL which is our local traveling series. Most of the tracks we run on have decent to good traction. Low dust conditions. Truck works awesome for all of these places. We don't run our trucks much on outdoor 8th scale tracks so our setups are developed for the conditions we are racing on here in So Cal.
