I'm pretty sure that's what the stock black springs are.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

This is where I am confused. Some people say no swelling is acceptable, others say they will swell a little under hard loads but will return to normal. In my SCTE, I have never seen a battery not swell, even if it's the tiniest amount, and returned to normal.

I dunno which way to lean on the subject

Bah stop being a big baby n run that truck hard!! If it catches fire oh well, its the risk you take! Better then being burned marshaling nitros
I have a buddy that runs lipos bigger than tge stay puff marshmellow , cracked cases , duct taped together. He actually poked them with a pin to get the swelling out and filled the hole with silicone and they still run, i actually liquid gelled a pack , it felt mushy, charged it again and it ran fine, but a dude at the track acted like it was dooms day lol
My bad

After a short break from shortcourse racing my SCTE is now in for a rebuild, KHZ chassis, Tekno centre shafts, rpm front bumper and some new plastics on the way, can't wait to get her running again :-)

The packs are sealed and air expands when it gets hot. Different than the actual chemistry causing them to permanently swell.

Getting ready for the fall season on the east coast. This truck is still the way to go in 4wd sc, it just needs some "minor" updating.

I'll ask Bennie what he was doing with those jars! He put it together for me down in virginia. I think there are about 15% of the stock parts still on that car, we call it Frankenstein.

It's ready for eastern states, barnstormers, and lcrc this fall. this is strictly an outdoor car, unless someone reopens vineland's indoor track.

No such thing, Dom! The SCTE dominates indoors or out.

I'm using Aaron Lanes setup and wondering what the shock length should be? It says full droop plus two turns out... I'm not sure where full droop is. Would that be shock ends screwed all the way on then out two?
Also do I run "0" front bushings?

Full droop means droop screws unscrewed - so they do not touch the chassis. On top of that you make the shock length longer by unscrewing the bottom link end so the effective length of the shock is longer.
