Need a little help..i am changing the rear hubs out to the upgraded ones in the TLR kit. Once I remove the tire, how do you remove the large hex looking nut off of the axle. I don't want to booger this thing up..

I have one last decision to make before I order all my stuff to finally get mine on the track and that is what Spektrum TX to get DX3S or DX3R Pro.

The reason for the indecision is I plan to race this but my skill when it comes to racing has a long way to go. Thoughts people?

I have also seen Protek now has 70C packs out! I got one for my 22T, will report my thoughts on it this next weekend!
Can't go wrong with these.
I bought 3 (6.0 / 65C-130C) for the price of 1 2S Orion Lipo at my local HS.
No problem so far.

Default Cracked Front Diff Case

So I was just tearing the front down to put 7k fluid in instead of the 5k. I only ran 4 packs through it on its maiden practice day. It was my first time back in 20 years and it took all 4 packs to get back to not crashing horrifically.

Anyway, I guess that one of the hard hits the truck took started to tear the screw that holds the front hinge pin holder to the diff case, out of the side of the diff case. It had not torn clean through, but a couple more hits and it would have.

I found that on the track I was running on, Coral Springs RC track, that the 553 fluid combo gave me way more steering than I wanted. The truck wanted to over steer coming out of corners on power and it would kick around every time. I had to stay so ginger on the power that I could not maintain speed on corner exits.

The turn in off power was great, just let off the throttle and the truck would come right around. I was running everything in Dakota Phend's set up accept for the 753 diff fluids. I think that will calm down the steering for me.

I also had the 4000 kv tenshock geared down to 13 tooth. I can get away with a higher gear. The car had to much torque down low. I am new to this exponential thing on the controller. Guess I will try that next.

Hi there,
Quick question to the knowledgeable...
I used to run the following setup:
MMP SCT Pro + 1415 / 2400Kv
19T pinion
NanoTech 6.0
I have changed to:
MMP SCT Pro + 1410 / 3800Kv
15T pinion
NanoTech 6.0
What is going to be the difference in terms of:
1. Torque
2. Top speed
3. Runtime
Thx for the feedback, much appreciated.

1. Not sure
2. From 49,5km/h to 61,8
3. What did you get with the 1415? I could probably go 13-14 minutes with that motor and battery.

Hi there cavg,
Thx for your input: do you mean I will go from to 49.5km/h to 61.8km/h while moving from 1415 to 1410?
Would that gearing (15T) be adequate?
As for runtime with the previous system (1415), I used to get quite a lot of runtime; more or less 15/20 mins.
Again, thx for your feedback; much appreciated as usual.
Best,
V

Changes i made to my truck this weekend made a ton of difference.. i been working on getting the truck to turn on some tight slow corners.. truck is really good now..

diffs..
3-5-2 (gonna try 3/7/2)

Shocks
30/27.5 shocks, front rear (gold/ stock black front rear) new springs coming this week

Front
middle tower, out on arm, the upper hole camber link on tower
1* toe out

rear
same as truhe setup, 2.5* rear toe, 3* anti squat, hubs spaced forward, with one shim in front.

Truck was awesome all weekend.. only issue i had, i got the new axel couplers with the set screw for the center drive shafts, and one of them broke at the indention for the set screw. set screw is still in place and everything. luckily i had a spare set.

Increasing the front diff fluid will not calm the steering down... It will increase the corner exit steering and decrease the corner entry steering.

First you need to find out if the truck has too much steering or if its over rotating on corner exit. From what im reading it sounds like it is over rotating. To settle the rear down on corner exit either lower the rear ride height or go with a lighter sway bar in the rear.

I would change the rear sway bar if it was me. If you change your diff fluid it will change he entire cornering of the truck.

Yes you are correct but you do not need to take away too much material to make it work. Proline themselves put out a video to do this. I was thinking the same thing though with the stock wheels. I think I will be getting some stockers until the other companies figure out how to make a better wheel. Thanks for the insight!

Yes speed will increase. And if it will be adequate.. all i can say is that it depends on track and track conditions etc.

It's a good starting point.
