Really? I havent checked mine for cracking but I didn't do this. I just made sure it was halfway in to give an even amount of support between the rod and the rod end.

Ran the truck today for the first time. Corners great, but on the blown out jump faces, it nosed over every time. My battery is back and my rear ride height is 29mm, front is 27mm. Should I try moving the battery forward so there is less weight in the rear? It seems the rear still bottoms out on the jump face when I increase my ride height. Also, is it possible to fit a 21t pinion with the stock mount?

No 21 t wont fit stock mount.The jumps themselves could be part of the problem,try to let off as you approach the jump and then pin the throttle and don't let up until you come to land.or just keep it pinned from start to finish. If this is your first 4x4 sct it takes some drive time to figure out the characteristics of this type!Look at the jumps closely, and do not run drag brake or push control on your speedo! Cheers!

I think this is what you require.
This also.
Not sure though... Anybody on this?
Saw it in the thread somewhere but can't seem to find it now...
I am trying to see myself as I would like to gear up on my CC MMP 2400 Kv.
Best,

Wont work , the hole spacing is wider on the 8ight mount .

The Elite mount is expensive but worth it IMO as it wont flex/strip like the stock mount can .

For a more blown out track, I would consider making sure your truck is flat or even a little rear lower..so go to 28mm front and rear or even go 29f, 27r.

Is there a tool available to remove the shock cartridge or just pliers?

Has anyone else managed to strip the holes in the rear diff (gear housing)? not the actually diff itself, but the housing around in.

Somehow, the two short screws just fall out now.
