Which motor size is better Trinity 3.5 or 5.5. 550 can? Tight track with lots of grip and big jumps.

Default Beadlock wheels

Has anyone tried the Ofna SCRT10 wheels on the sc10 4x4? I know the SCRT10 axles are 5mm instead 6mm but thinking they could be reamed to fit easily. Anyone done this or tried it and it didn't work so well? Looking for some beadlock looking wheels with some color to match the paint scheme and not having much luck. If anyone knows of some that work let me know.

5.5, gives you more torque. Also less prone to running too hot.

Hey Marcus,
I know you keep going through idlers on your reverse rotation mod. Have you though about using a pinion? It wouldn't be able to ride on bearings but it still might work.

No but I have tried the $15 equvliant that uses the exact same principals. It may be smoother and more adjustable or whatever, but it will not perform like the center diff, it will perform just like the regular slipper but will do it properly where the stock slipper pads failed.

Yea I stopped at 5k/5k as it seemed the lighter I went the harder it was to hold a drift since it the back end would kick around a little unpredictably

At my local indoor track there is a double right before a 90deg that opens to the front straight. To get the drive I need out of the corner I need to land then get on the gas which kicks out the rear a bit. If i can hold it I get a real nice drive down the straight and sets up a good passing opportunity going down the straight into the sweeper.

One could argue that Losi doesn't have a 4wd buggy - period. Evans won the Spectrum race with a brand new (but still 15 year old) XX-4. Next year is an IFMAR worlds year, and Losi has a new 4wd coming.

Kory is no sap, neither is Max. Likewise, Valentino Rossi didn't forget how to ride a motorcycle from 2010 to 2011, although that crap Ducati he rides might make it easy to think he did.

Yes, smoother and more adjustable than the basket used now (maybe that is still to be seen) but still not as effective as the center diff in my opinion based on tracks I run.

Exactly my point! You look at the Reedy truck race and their was lots of competition there and the Ryans were able to do very well (granted they are not mere mortals when driving RC).

Yes, it would be more difficult for them to win 4wd SC than mod truck or mod SC. Therefore you just focus on trying to ensure that you are able maximize the number of wins.

Just FYI, if you purchased the option rack from Associated (91181) and your running a kit truck you will need spacers or shorter ball studs. The kit uses an 8mm stud so without washers/spacers you will need a 6mm ball stud.

For the guys running the stick pack down the middle of the chassis, how's the chassis flex after taking out the rear chassis section? Does the CF rod mod cover this without excess flex? Thanks.
