I had a question about shock pistons to confirm. Shock piston 1 has the biggest hole, and 2 slightly smaller, and 3 smallest?

Thanks

Answered, it is

I finished putting the kit together and I ran it around in my basement and the diff sounded really noisy. Since this is only like the third time I have ever put a diff together I figured I did sometime wrong so I took it apart and rebuilt it as shown in the manual and it still has a lot of noise to it. Has this happened to anyone else or is it just because the gears are new and will the diff just work itself in. Thanks

If all is correct.Just run it around without to much motor and break it in.It will smooth right out.

I had quick test with a 28t pinion and stock spur, feels like running the CO27 with a 24, Ill have to see tomorrow what its like on the track.

got my new ft t4 and ft b4 broke in today racing......

but our track is getting into slick territory, wondering what everyone things of holeshot m3s (kit tires) made into slicks on moist clay (track holds water very well through the whole round - not being out in the sun helps to) the tires i have been using are switch 2.0 clay in the rear, and switch 1.0/bobcats in the front both the t4 and the b4 feel very stable and are slightly loose with this setup, but as the track goes to full-blown slicks i don't think they will work as well, and im not up for grinding down a brand new set of switch 2.0s.

the plan is for slicks in the rear, and leave the switch/bobcat in the front, just wondering if the m3 compound in slicks is a viable option, or if i need to order something else.

At the track I race at in the winter, its kind of mixed when it comes to slicks. I think the type of tire foam may make a bigger difference than the tire compound. I use silver taperpins or Panther med-soft bobcats, Trinity blue foam, and tire sauce. Others at our track also use silver, M3's and even Reds. Pinks are rarely used, unless we run a treaded tire race.

Has your track ever run slicks before? If so, what did the fast guys use last year?

Losi pink taper pins are probably your best bet along with Panther switches in clay compound. Grind them down until there's just a little pin left on the outside of the tire and you should be good. Might also be a good idea to ask the fast guys there what to run tire and insert wise...

believe the track began just a few short years ago, they have a huge outdoor track for the summer, and a really nice indoor track, and they always come up with amazing layouts for the space they have.

Thanks
