Some people only see the bottom line and fail to realize how to get there (not you, just general). If you are racing RC and 12.00 is a breaking point, maybe dont drink a Monster drink and eat a salad for dinner will make up the difference nobody complained about the price of the extended balls for the 8mm mod, now thats a steep price. Try buying a set of Kyosho springs or shocks
Thanks for the info. knowing that now maybe 40 pins was excessive LOL.

I agree though, it is amazing at what we consider a fair price for performance in RC. A lot of it I think goes to perception of cost. After running 1/5 scale, I can see they use that in pricing similar sized plastic components in comparison to a 1/8 counter part.

I have 50grams at the front left, but its not my final-setup. I will use some more weight besides the servo and a steel-plate (100-200 grams) in the chassis to get more weight down low. Why don't you just weigh how you're weight is distributed and try it out? It depends on the weight of your battery and electronics anyway.

I am sure this has been asked many times back when the FT version was released. Would like to know if an original SC10 4x4 can be easily converted to the newer FT version and what parts would be required. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I would say yes if you are speaking about what really matters (saddle pack conversion, chassis brace, etc) and not what comes off more as bling (shocks, blue aluminum screws, etc).

Not saying they don't have something of benefit, but in comparison some things matter more.

With the price these are going for which may be a reflection on how they are doing on a lot of tracks that aren't the ideal conditions for them, it may be cheaper to actually pick up someones loaded vehicle versus buying the parts you need new.

Thanks to RC Shox Center Diff and the M2C Toe in Block system, I have been hard pressed to let this vehicle go and go all Durango (got the 2wd buggy recently, looks very nice).

The M2C block set at 3.5, the RC-Shox center ball diff, the +8 mod (well mine is mre of a +6 outside and +7 inside) and a set of holeshots have proven my truck on an outdoor very loose track. Yes Glitch. The very first time I ran it I took 1st place, no real practice. The truck drives awesome, but sadly you do have to put money into it.

have you tried the truck without the 8mm mod but using the M2C block? Curious to see what you think. You may need the rear link position longer than where the 8mm mod has it on a lot of trucks (middle on stock hub versus 8mm mods outer position on riser)
