Tighten that saver up fully lock it and loosen it a little bit. Other thing you can do is mount the Front shocks into the middle hole on the Front arms but than you will need to lower the ride height though.

But Tires are the most factor into that though .

I am in the outside hole on the arms now. I run 553 diff oil. I run the heavy sway bar up front. Might try a lighter sway bar next. I run goose bumps for tires and it is a toss up between those and rebars as for the tire to run at the track. I have driven trucks on rebars but liked my tires better. I won my qualifier but wasn't tq. I finished 2nd in the main. I did run the quickest lap in the main though. I just need that little bit more. It is on a hard pack surface.

I will look at a set of the wishbones. I have a set of wheels here and am wanting to try a set of tires that are different just to see. Sounds like I might have some to try.

I'd leave your diff oil alone, try going in on the bottom shock mount first, if that does not help, go softer sway bar, then no sway bar, you can gain alot of steering by removing the front swaybar.

Noticed nice level flight, sat down a little more in the rear and got great power down, I did loose a little steering, but I wanted to do that, had plenty of steering before. The truck was very stable thru the rough sections and really nice to drive, did I say fast?? I was getting within .3 or so of the lap record ( witch I hold) every race and average lap times were better.
Great mod for $00.0.

How did you do it to get the ESC mounted forward and the battery tray more toward the rear ? It looks like you swaped the Rear axle to the Front and the Front axle to the Rear also ?

Any drilling involved ?

I cut down the battery holder and re-mounted it at the rear, cut ESC mount off, just used the holes that are in it and re-drilled the chassis and bolt it back up. (drill the holes right thru the holder, that makes it easy to drill the chassis) I did make a new battery mount, but it diden't sit flat on the chassis and looked stupid, so went back to the stock one as is sits a little higher, and flat. The ESC is mounted with a pad under it (you can see it's green) straight to the chassis. Yes swap the front and rear drive shafts, move motor back and re-drill chassis mounts, this is what they did on the 2.0, just swapped axles.

My thinking was if I diden't like it I could change it back easy, but it's a keeper. A long time ago I made a easy mod for the center diff as well and added two bearings, one each end, at a cost of $00.0, bugger paying $40 US for an easy mod, all it took was some thought a drill and a dremel.

Has anybody done the 2.0 motor mount mod to a Kingsheadz chassis?

That battery reverse mod does look good !! This is the set up i run , by far the best the truck has ever run, been running it for 3 months or so, only thing i did was go 15mm rebound on shocks all round, and run 5,7,3 in diffs. My ten scte is the fastest ten scte around our track and i normally battle for 1st to 3rd with new teknos and ten scte .2 at our track. highly recomend it !!!

I noticed the rear of my truck was not rebounding like it should and found the problem to be bent rear hinge pins. Are the Ti-Nitrate ones stronger then stock?

I believe they are the same base material but the tini pins will be smoother and help the suspension do its job better.

Can you guys teach me about servos? What are the major differences between a $40 servo vs a $100+ servo? I am going to be servo shopping after pay day.
