Well the truck and the thread have been going a year Feb,and the chassis debate is well documented, every one thinks the one they chose is best(of coarse)If the thread was not 2 million pages long it would not be the truck it is!!!!!(Which it is)(The Best)!!!!So if You or Him actually follow the thread You would understand what He is trying to say! (The chassis debate is just a war of words) Buy one and race(not you specifically) but the masses is what we are trying to say!!!:t ire::tir e:

Yes, the sides are very thin. I did cut through the side while scoring

The body posts are stock only upside down. When mine broke I flipped them over. I did drill a new hole in the rear so that the body rest pivoted the correct way but I left the front with the pins at 90.

It's a 4Pole motor, use zero timing. Bring down the Current Limiter to 70%-80%. Stock it comes with an 18t pinion, that's a good place to start

Ive done 5 bodies between 2 trucks and ive never had the dimples wrong. Ive done both Jconcepts and Proline bodies.

Its a body that was made for this truck, it should always be marked with the stock mounting positions for each truck (2wd/4wd).

At least explain that the paper is supposed to be cut out and used as a stencil. The way i saw it, its just showing which dimple goes to what truck.

Im still trying to figure out what the 5 dimples are for? If they are for other trucks, where does it tell you which hole goes to what?

Looks great on my iPhone, too. No need to limit your size.

I'm pretty sure the dimples are just spots in the mold where suction holes are located.

Anyone have the link to the site that sells better diff parts for the SCTE? They sell the steel bushings that replace the aluminum one as well as steel shims. Ive been searching this thread for the past hour and still havent found the link. Thanks!

We have always done it with the body off on this truck for some reason. I guess maybe I ruined all that as I just found it hard to get in there with the body on. Typically though with all of the other vehicles, its with the body on.
