For those that were waiting for the AKA Cyclone wheels for the SCTE, I just got 2 sets in the mail (8 wheels). After a close inspection of the wheels, I'll probably be sticking the the DE wheels. The AKA wheels looks nice and seem like good plastic, but they seem to have approximately 1mm more backspacing than the DE wheels. That is, the truck will be about 2mm narrower with the AKA wheels. Now what I don't know is where the stock wheels fit into the mix. It could be the AKA wheels are fine and the DE wheels actually make the truck wider. Regardless, it doesn't seem like narrower would be better. The other thing I don't like about the AKA wheels is that they fit very loose on my wheel hexes. Where I have to actually press the DE wheels onto the hex when they are new, the AKA wheels slid right over the hex and kind of flop around until you tighten them down.

Kyosho rims also work on the rear but give a wider stance, tried them on carpet with long schumacher spikes

I did just find them in stock at Nitrohouse and ordered a full set f/c/r and the light weight steering tubes from Jammin.

2 questions:

1. Is the airtronics mt-4 a good radio? If not what should I be looking at? I've been using a spectrum Dx3s I got with rtr 8ight couple years ago but ready to upgrade.

2. I've seen a lot on here about emulsion shocks. My question about this style is can they handle big 1/8 scale jumps? Or better suited for smaller jumps?

i hardened all my outdrives myself too. i have ~25 packs through the truck now and show little to no wear at all.

1. Yes. I recently purchased one and i'm very happy with it. I went from a Fly-sky gt3b, and the difference is huge. Lap times have improved considerably!

2. Depends on what oil and piston you put in them. Can't see why they should have any problems with larger jumps.

run ryan dunford's setup, u will get all the steering u will ever need. WCRC is also my home track, i tried the aaron lane setup, and ryan's setup is what i prefer.

One modifications to the instructions above. Make sure it is used Motor oil, carbon in the oil is what makes it hard. Besides that it is correct.
