Thanks!
I don't glue mine and I haven't had a problem, but it can't hurt. The stock shock stand off is two piece(screw and nut) where the one piece is, well, one piece!

1) I did 1 quick brush on to make sure, i do it with all my carbon pieces.

2) Stand off is the piece that physically goes into the shock tower. Right now its 3 pieces, the 1 piece is actually 2 pieces with the nut on the end. However, the rest of it is all 1 piece.

Man I feel the same way,Over a year now and still leave the track with a big grin everytime I love My truck!Some times I just stare at it like a kid trying to imagine being shrunk down so I can ride in it!Love it!!!P.S. cant wait for the 1/10th 4x4 buggy to come out so I have another 4-wheel drive to run and for those diff cups with the molded inserts we are all wishing for RYAN????By the congrats on your WIN Ryan~~~
Yes, the shaft has come completely out on two occasions and the set screw is still in place. I'm not sure what could be causing this other than the set screw came loose or the little slop in the ring and pinion gears. I was thinking of shimming the pinion to achieve a better mesh. I never had this issue with the stock shaft.

bro, is there any way for you to post a photo of this? I was having the issue of throwing the pin, happened a few times, but since the setscrew came out, it's been fixed. Kinda wondering how this happens.

Very disappointing that they're getting away with it at bigger races that should know better.

Whats funny too me is THEY (Team Durango) are seasoned racers and they probably know that the wing is not legal to race with but are doing it anyways ? Thats basically cheating IMO .....

The only way it is not legal is at a ROAR event .

Not true. Any track can follow ROAR rules, or implement their own, or if hosting a sanctioned event defer to that organization's rulebook. Any of which can make that wing (spoiler) illegal.

Is it done? Clearly not all the time. But there are plenty of non-ROAR races that don't allow wings.

Unfortunately, if an organized race has no rules to govern wing wing legality, then there are probably no rules governing body (probably only rules regarding electronics and such) and can thus you can run anything on a SCT dimsensioned platform that you want. Why not just use a baja bug body and a wing.

Now all that said, does IFMAR even address SCT?

And to make it more confusing, I understand that at lower level/local ROAR events a lot of the rules are discretionary - so even at ROAR events you could run a wing. But not much much at the nationals. How many are DQ'd for not having headlights?

Anyway, they just look stupid. Case closed. =)

Not really much a pic would show, just the driveshaft thrown out. This is not a stock shaft it is a Tekno. I switched to Tekno after throwing a couple of CVD pins in the stock front shaft, problem solved on front. My issue is in the rear after switching the stock shaft to Tekno. I haven't thrown any pins with the new shafts, just lost the entire rear shaft a couple of times. Guess I should crank that setscrew a little harder, but I still wonder about the mesh in the ring gear.

You can seal them but most do not and I have not heard of any problems. Being the towers don't see direct impact as they are protected by the body and the sides like a chassis do not get pulled seems to not be an issue.

The one piece shock standoffs are for the upper shock mount. They elminiate the long screw with the lock nut to a once piece design that is easier to move the shock position.

No issue here with the TLR rear hubs...other than I dropped 1 of the plastic spacer/shims between the hub and arm so had to improvise on that! But new chassis and deal bearing mount from KH will be here tomorrow....WOOT WOOT!

Default traction roll

my scte is traction rolling on hi grip surface like our indoor clay track. im at 27.5wt shock oil front and rear with the losi gold springs. i have the ride height pretty dang low and put some more camber in it, feels like the camber helps but starts to effect my steering a bit. any ideas??

Some may disagree, but limiting front droop and having the correct tires are my go to methods of stopping traction roll.

i actualy raised the front ride height a bit, it sits a lil higher in the front. im just above level with the drivelines in front and sitting a lil below level in the rear. im using barcodes on clay.
