like ryan wasnt fast enough, when he took spoiler off he turned his fastest laps.... i was qualified 4th and had no chance of hanging with him... oh by the way in case no one mentioned it, he was told to take it off..

I personally run the "stock" setting which is 0 all around. Truck works great for me! I am sure others will chime in.

I think it looks good. And why not? Lots of things have wings. Birds, chickens, wing tips, import commuter cars. Why can't a Durango have wings?

I'm attaching a picture of the real life prototype. I think it looks pretty good.

I'm guessing with all that engineering, plywood, and downforce, you could take a 35MPH turn at like... 27MPH.

I don't need to use a BEC or Glitch buster at all with the SCT Pro, whereas I really needed the glitch buster when I was running the Mamba Max Pro (otherwise same electronics all around). So perhaps still worth saving a couple of dollars if you find you don't really need it.

I noticed a little ring gear wear last time I had the rear diff apart and wonder if a little slop in there is the culprit. Thanks.

Wish i knew the feeling. I can't setup my vehicles for crap. I can drive just not too keen on the tuning side. I'm gonna get better at it though. Hopefully.

Don't make me stick an 810 wing out the aero cutouts in the back.

I was actually contemplating it to deal with the nose dive issue when I drive full out on a large 8th scale track though. It should be easy to put on for that and take off the rest of the time...except for the wrenching while threading through the body part.

Default 2 Newbie Questions

Hi, just 2 n00b questions from me as I await my delivery:

1) With the TLR carbon fibre shock towers, is it necessary to superglue the edges to keep it from delaminating/fraying?

2) What is a 1-piece shock standoff? I am looking at the pictures and also at the explosion diagrams and can't quite know for certain - is it the part that attaches to the shock tower that the shock cap then goes around?

Thanks!
