4wd will have lot more control in the air. If you have drag brake in your setup the front wheels stopping in the air will drive the front end down. The truck will jump a little nose down so you kind of just need to learn to jump a little more on throttle. Where in 2wd you would let off right away to get the nose down you need to stay on throttle a little longer with a 4wd to keep the nose up.

Don't bother with the Mip kit first. Tune your truck with the stocker first and then you can get a KH chassis or tlr. I use Chris's battery tray and that moves the weight a lot behind for just 30$ and its lighter than stock.

I have been launching and using more throttle to keep the front end up. Thinking about Chris's battery tray. Does it make that much difference?

This truck definitely has an issue with nose diving. I just recently switched to the MIP kit and it helps, but honestly I haven't run it on enough different layouts to say how much. It seems to have improved the handling everywhere else as well though. Specifically I like the responsiveness of it.

I tend to like the nose diving style of a stock scte. Really helps me land right on the downslopes of jumps.

Take some anti-squat out.

This will shift more weight to the rear. http://ape-rc.com/#ecwid:category=28...oduct=12247186

I run the ape tray as well its much better . But if your truck is acting up like a donkey then chances are theres some ish somewhere, bent shaft , swollen O rings. Tight arm holes on hinge pin, rear hinge pin brace could be too tight, bad aproach to face of the jump, the list goes on...

After struggling with back flips on other SCT's, I think the "nose diving" is a blessing. Helps me come down on jumps much better. That is preferred over ending up like an upside down turtle on the track.

It all comes down to driving style. The SCTE definitely has more weight on the front axle than other trucks. Some guys like stock chassis with the battery forward (52/48 weight dist) some guys like the MIP chassis (45/55 weight dist).

With my tray in the rearmost position the truck has a 49/51 weight dist. It tends to make the truck a little easier to drive and jump flatter.

running the KH chassis and removed the rear battery holder bar and slid the battery all the way back, moved the front bar all the way back to where its tight to the battery and this helped alot....Eventually i'll make the swap to the ape tray but for now it handles great and not complaining and just found out our local track will be open tomorrow so i gotta go get down to the basement and get the tires glued up so i can try to talk the wife into letting me run tomorrow

With quick flip of the APE tray, you can mount the tray esc forwards so the battery is at the rearmost position. From there you can adjust. The esc however then needs to be behind the motor (which was a 540 for me). I did not drive it with this setup yet. This on a KH chassis.

What radio gear did you end up getting since your FS(something i can say outloud, lol...both cus words) took a poop???

And using 8ight shocks isnt cheating...its smart! Its a heavy truck and uping to the bigger shocks isnt necessary but just made more sense to me personally becuz i didnt know when i would be able to do some serious weight reduction and i already had them
