Casper - what are the sway bar sizes? Is it 1.8, 2.0, 2.2?

Good question. I will check or Ryan will be by to confirm. I have not played with the swaybars in so long I forgot!

Read on an earlier post that taking the front swaybars off will help the turning. I really had to work for my truck to turn properly. Took them off and it made a huge difference.

I tried the RCshox 2 stage pistons for the first time at my last race, I ran 32.5 front and 30 rear with standard blue springs.

I run on a UK outdoor bumpy track, I tried using big bore shocks before as I needed more pack for the bumps and jumps but was never happy. Don't bother changing the shocks just the pistons, the RCshox 2 stage pistons are awesome they give better response in the bumpy sections and good pack for the jumps, I could corner so hard without rolling the tyres came off the rims!

Excellent job Marcus

Default Issue with servo

Since a couple of days I own a brand new Losi TEN-SCTE.

I've built in all the electronics and now I'm having an issue with my servo, I think.

Here's my config:
- Castle Sidewinder SCT ESC/motor combo (new)
- Spektrum DX3s Tx with SR300 Rx (always used in my Traxxas Slash 4x4)
- Sävox 1258tg servo (new)

When I turn on I hear some beeps from the ESC/motor and everything is quiet.
From the moment I turn the wheel on the Tx, the servo makes some noise, just like there's some interference... I hope you understand what I'm trying to say?!

When turning the steering quickly from left to right, a few times after each other, sometimes the servo does some weird things and wants to go back in neutral position. All the time the servo makes noise.

Someone an idea?

Any other suggestions? Just would like it to rotate around 180/90 degree turns a little better.

Thinking of trying 7k in the center diff (573) or run 2k in the rear (552).
Try the 1.8 front swaybar. I recently ran on a tight indoor track and going smaller on the swaybar really helped around the 180s. Just don't forget to change it back for more open tracks. I couldn't figure out why my truck was so loose.

For a smallish medium traction indoor track (same one rcgod is referring to I believe) I am using 3/3/2 in the diffs and medium bar front, small bar rear. I tried the small front bar and got too much steering response.

Thanks Ryan! That helps a lot when workin off someone's setup!

I've been using 1.6 front and 2.0 rear. My truck still seems a bit loose in the rear - I was over steering at the end of the long straight all weekend. Does this indicate too much steering or too little rear grip? Maybe I'll try a fatter front and thinner rear bar.

It could be both. I would go stiff in the front sway bar as this will transfer less wieght and should help with high speed steering.

This is typcial for digital servo's They are always trying to find center and if there is any friction on the front tires it may not get all the way back to dead center and they will hum. Perfectly normal.
