Another option for shocks is always the Losi 8ight 2.0 buggy shocks (f/r). If you use the ball studs from the bottom of the stock Ten shocks they fit right in. The standoff holes on the Ten towers is 3mm, the 8ight 2.0 standoffs are 4mm. You can either drill the holes to 4mm, or buy the RTR shock caps for the 8ight bb's and those will bolt to 3mm. Or you can always get longer 3mm bolts and make your own.

Losi 8ight standoffs with BB's on the Ten T.

I have been running a 5.5 550 motor in mine and it powers it pretty good on some tight indoor tracks. Going to get a 4.5 to try out in it next week.

[QUOTE=CarlCrocco;8519336]Hey All,

What do you think about running 4s on this truck with the new Mamba Max Pro SCT setup from castle as a viable track car. I've read comments that this would be insane, but i thought maybe with proper gearing this would work.



Are you talking about the new 2400kv system? it would be to much on 4s, about perfect on 3S. The only problem is most all tracks have a 2s limit in SC.

They would make it outside the legal width by quite a bit. You will have to run a zero offset wheel, like the Proline Protrac.

So does this SC look rather slender compared to the others out there? Would after market bodies fit this chassis?
It is only .2mm inside the class rules. its actually one of the wides in the class. The only body that would cover good is the blitz body or the dezert rat 2.0 for the blitz.

You need to run a Blitz style body. The widest I have found is the J-Concepts Truth for the Blitz

I am running 5-7-2. Others are running 3-3-2 and 10-10-2.

We are kind of all over the place but the truck works great with all of them.

I would start with 5-7-2 and tune from there. Not because that is what I am running but it is in the middle!

Closer to the release of the truck we will get some setups posted.

The slash fronts would make your truck an inch wider than the stock wheels. So you would have quite a bit hanging out of your body.

+1 on the 5-7-2. Turns great and still pulls strong out of the corners.

No comment on Viper, but remember... "Good things come to those who wait."

Don't get me wrong that has been my plan from day 1 with my 2nd set of 2.0B shocks but until testing is done with shock limiters to keep around the same droop settings, I don't know if that will be my best option and that comes from experience of trying to get longer shocks to work on a car that is made for smaller shocks to get the intended droop settings that the car is designed for.
Are you running limiters in the shocks? I ask because there is about an 8mm difference in length for the fronts and rears when compared to the 2.0B shocks. I just don't see being able to get the truck to handle the same without some amount of limiters.
I probably won't notice it too much on the local 1/8 scale track but sure would on the local 1/10 scale track.

Another thought: maybe raising the top location the 8mm on those carbon towers would be another good option to limit the downtravel as well.
