Looks like it has the TLR tuning kit as well (HA aluminium shock caps, HA aluminium threaded shock collars, one piece shock standoffs, aluminium hinge pin holders, carbon towers?, can't see if it has the aluminium rear hubs). You probably don't need much bling at all .

It does have aluminum rear hubs.

The steering rack seems a little sloppy so im going to address that first. I want to get a complete screw kit and break down the chassis and clean it up

What do you guys do to stop the oversteering on the MIP conversion for the 1.0 it seems like the Rear end likes to come out of turns ? Im using the TLR towers on it . The Front end seems much lighter than the Rear end for sure also and it tends to catch me off guard and get twichy kind of.

Im coming from driving the typical 1.0 layout with the TLR flex chassis so this was the first time driving the MIP. One thing i notice is the MIP has a ton of corner speed and it does seemed to have more turn in.


So im thinking about trying 5,5,3 from 7k in the center diff and using 32w shock oil on the Front end some lead weights maybe on the Front end .

run 5,5,3 first before you add weight it should help with your problem

Ok what about doing 32w shock oil on the Front shocks insend of 30w ? Im running 3 hole pistons. Im thinking that doing 32w on the Front shocks will help to stop the twichyness and make the Front end more of a planted feel .

I run the truck outdoors with usually dry dirt. The 7k in the center diff worked good on the TLR flex chassis 1.0 . But that was a heavyer truck totally diffrent layout.

It couldnt hurt to try but I have never ran 3 hole pistions so im not much help there. Maybe make the roll center higher? Just to get some more weight transfer

Move the camber link on the front tower up ? I have it on the bottom hole on the tower with 1 degree camber .

On the rear im not sure i know if i move that into the uppet hole il lose some rotation but it will be more stable on the rear end . But that many help a lot with the lose rear end .

Yea the roll center thing is confusing with all diffrent opinions .

Check out the tuning with camber links thread. That helps clarify the roll center adjustments. Going to a stiffer front oil will help keep the weight from transferring rapidly to the front end under braking coming into a corner. Decreasing droop in the rear will have a similar affect but I have never liked decreasing droop on my SCTE. It has just never felt right. If you are loosing the tail of the truck on corner exit (stepping out like a posi on snow), you could try even lighter rear oil too (2K).

You could also try running a short camber link in the rear. Bringing the rear hubs up to the short wheel base position could help lock the rear end back in too.
