To clarify, I believe thats only if you are using the one piece stand offs. I'm still on the out of the box setup and it is not an issue. Because of this, I'm ordering up some titanium button head screws and aluminum nuts.

I didn't struggle with the two outer ones, but that inner one with the Dubro ends was an experience. I found that using one of my smaller hex drivers through the bottom to hold the washer in place and then use it to pull the Dubro end in made it pretty easy.

The ones I have fit great , you could spread the end of the bullet out a little to make it tighter but then its really hard to get back out .

They fit tight on my 6.0 and 6.6 Nano Techs as well .

That's like asking which chassis to get!

Lot's of strong opinions, and there are many good options.

I'm looking to get my scte to slide the rear end around in corners more, I have a rear steer style. Can this be accomplished with diff fluid changes? Take off front sway?

I am new to the scte so it's all stock as far as diff and sway bars.

Thanks

I took my front sway bar off and switched to 2000 wt in the rear diff. My truck was pushing but now i can kind of do a controlled slide around corners.

Simple answer to the chassis debate and motor debate: SHOP YOUR BUDGET..... Buy what you are used to using....buy what the locals around your track are running... AND HELL WE ALL KNOW THERES AT LEAST ONE OF THESE BAD BIATCHESSS AT EVERY TRACK lol....

Question on springs: I see there are the sport packs and i was wondering if you guys that have purchased them are using all or just one set? Just wanted to know if i should buy just a certain strength or the total packs because they are all utilized.

Thanks

The racing springs only come in full sets. They are worth it though. Work much better then the stock springs.

Black front and orange rear are the 90% setup. That's what I run, that's what most people run and the setup sheets show.
