Yeah, I think you're the one that missed the sarcasm. It was a joke just in case you missed it.

I have another question for yall.

When you cut the side bumpers off the rock guard do you not have a problem with the side of the body and no side support or allow for parachuting?

Im just use to having my car bodies close to the car.

I can appreciate the aluminum shock collars and caps, but have never had any problem with the plastic shock parts that I still run today. And they're lighter.

Shock standoffs are nice, for sure, and can aid in quick shock adjustments - but I can tell you I think I've moved my shock locations a grand total of once so far.

Aluminum rear hubs are nice, and perhaps they make your bearings last longer, but for $1 a bearing from Avid I'm not too worried about it. I think the dirt and grime will get the bearings before the plastics will.

The parts I do appreciate from the tuning kit are the carbon fiber towers, and I'd probably add those to the list of Ridley's should-haves.

The tuning kit does give you a lot of items for your truck at a very good price. And lets face it .. we're all in love with the truck and what's it hurt to add a few more quality pieces for it? There are no WRONG pieces for this truck. Just need to prioritize what you want. Some people just love to tinker anyway ... it's all a hobby. Enjoy!
I absolutely agree with the shock towers, at least the rear. Something other than stock, anything really, is a necessity I would edit my post but it seems others are enjoying doing that for me

I was trying not to get suckered into another pisssing match, so I was hasty in making my list

Ridley can you recommend a pinion to start with ? Im using the pro 4 4000 .
I know you mentioned it in the past but ive forgotten. Gna test on friday and work out the temps
Im running at this track, my truck is the white one with white rims , proline malitia body...

I run the pro 4 4600, and use a 14T/40.

I have a friend that uses the same 43T 2.0 spur. He insists he can feel a difference in punch with the 43 even though the final ratios are near identical. I would think you should be able to get away with a 17/43 with the 4000kv, at least a 16t. If you can't, there might be some other issues with drag/bind/bearings.

Just watched the vid and saw it's carpet. As you have more traction than dirt, you'll be drawing more amps and creating more heat than dirt. I've never ran carpet personally, so I could only guess you'd have to gear down at least one tooth from a dirt settup.

Pro-match hands down has been great for me it's 65 bucks for a 6000mah 60c battery.. 1 year warranty can't beat it... He is hit and miss on stock but took 3 days to get it here didn't sit in customs for 3 weeks A guy at my local track turned me onto them and he finally had one give up the ghost after a awhile and had to buy an orion 90c untill more pro-matches showed up and didn't see a difference at all in laptimes from the orion or anymore punch so I'm thinking the C rating stuff can be kind of blown up

I have had some good and so so experience with Pro Match. Bought two 2 cells packs from them. Both ran great but one puffed so much the hard case separated. I picked up some battery heat shrink and it was fixed. Now my standard is to wrap each battery from the beginning.

I also think that the stock bearings are not to good either, I'm replacing mine with a set of Boca's ASAP..
They look nice and in the kit it is worth having if your the upgrade guy that is for sure.I have been racing on the same set of Stock rear hub carriers since new! About exactly one year ago!!!!

Same here, I race every weekend and ive owned the truck the day it was released. My stockers are still holding up fantastic. PLUS the aluminum carriers weigh more.

ok I have a funny to admit...

I thought I had 3k diff oil in the rear diff...

I went to rebuild the front diff and I was going change it from 7k to 3k, sooooooooo I remove the front diff, take it apart and clean it. I grab the 3k diff oil and I notice that its 30000! opps

I pulled the rear that had the "3K' and wow was it thick.
