i believe i have every SNR piece for this truck.. and have not had a single issue with any of it.. quality is supurb.. and i run my truck alot, 2-3 times a week at the track.. and customer service is top notch.. if you have any questions/concerns, contact SNR, he will get back to you right away... wish i could say the same about many other companies...

The updated ones have a revA on the back of the header card but the same part number.



I would have done it too, lol. You really want to use emulsion shocks on that track. You can send them in and I will drill it myself.
Hey Ryan on the emulsion how far up from the bottom of the shock cap are you drilling and.what size or # drill bit are you using? Looking to try this out for our pro series this weekend. What oils would you recommend for 1/8 size track with big jumps.

Have you purchased any parts from SNR? Have you even seen any in person? Doesn't sound like it. Save your thoughts on SNR until you have first hand knowledge. I've got pretty much every part made on my truck except for the towers and it all fits fantastic. I've also put it through the ringer and it's held up perfectly. I agree with you, Steve should change the pic of the towers on his site, that just doesn't look good. But I can assure you, his parts are high quality and durable. Slightly textured raw looking vs. shiny, I bought my pieces for the performance gains. They could look like they have warts all over them for all I care, if it makes me faster. But they don't, they have a unique look that I think actually is pretty cool. Everyone that's looked at my truck in person agrees, including a few of the TLR drivers. There's many more happy people with his parts than unhappy. Customer service is second to none and if something is wrong with the parts, I can assure you he'll make it right.

I have it geared at 13/40 with a 65ft strait. I have a race tomorrow night, and I would like to see if I can get the temps down a little. Any advice?
To start remove the drag brake.

This post is absolute garbage. What you see on this thread is a guy working his butt off to supply us with aftermarket parts and openly sharing the development of these parts with the people on this forum. I own all but the chassis plate and the parts are great and work as advertised. Shut your pie hole and go somewhere else if you can't handle yourself any better than this.

you mean this?

the snr towers i have are smooth as glass

pretty well said! With that said, its pretty much irritating for him coming back here and saying the guards are hanging out, the finished quality isnt up there when there has been talks about this for weeks and on a daily basis. search feature is one hell of a free option

The problem is not SNR. Everyone with a mouth and a sphincter has an opinion. The problem is too many opinions coming out the wrong end. If we were to publish a picture of every SNR part delivered in perfect flawless condition this thread would be nothing but pictures of nice looking carbon fiber.

To kind of change the subject, I am planning out my build. I have not even bought the kit yet. I am getting all of the electronics and hop up parts first. My goal is a 200 gm weight reduction. I don't care about how smooth the chassis is as long as it is the lightest one and it is durable.

SNR 3.7mm chassis = -110 gm
Titanium Turnbuckles = -10 gm
Titanium Hinge Pins = -10 gm
TLR outdrives = -13 gm
SNR Hingepin Holders = -35 gm
SNR or TLR carbon shock towers = -?gms

That totals about 178 grams without taking into account the weight of the carbon shock towers. What is the weight savings of the shock towers? I think they might put me where I want to be at a 200 gm weight reduction. That should be enough to put a kick in its step.

Also, is there any titanium hinge pins yet for this truck besides the limited production run done by Chris? That is an easy 10 gms if there is.

I have seen the SNR stuff and it is nice quality.

With that being said lets move on from SNR talk in here and get back on subject. If you guys want to talk about the need for SNR stuff or the quality start a thread about SNR and talk about it there please.

I have the snr shock towers and hinge pin holders. Towers are holding up great. Hinge pin holders not so well. The front of the front holder blew apart where the pin slides in and in the process took out a shock cap. Running aluminum now.

Nothing different in the ARR and the RTR. The shims imbedding into the blocks should not be a big deal with the new gears. The new gears are so much longer with better contact between the gears even if this does happen should not effect performance or life.
