What it does is give just a little slip too the driveline when you nail the throttle , this helps keep the rear end from getting squirrley . I am using the stiffest springs with a 16T bell , and yes I do like it !

Thanks bashem. My mini 8ight is better than yours lol Yeah my buddy put the trackion drive on his truggy and said the same things you're saying. I know in a truggy the trackion drive is more beneficial for sure because of weight and torque. What size bells do they have? I want to be able to have the same choices as I do with the pinions for the eb48.

Not sure on bell sizes but Tekno has bells from 13t to 18t but HPI has bells up to 22t I think . Most standard 1/8 size clutchbells will work with the traktion drive .....

The o-ring is to help keep the servo saver setting from moving. Without it, the aluminum ring rotates too easily and will eventually screw itself to the bottom.

The 5mm listed in that step seems to be too much. With it cranked down that much, the spring is nearly compressed. I'm talking maybe 2mm travel left. What am I doing wrong?

Nothing wrong, I think we may have adjusted that number. Make it so there is about 4mm of compression.

Are there any other body options that will fit? Maybe a serpent body?

Tekno....any more thoughts on a "tuner" package?
A package deal for springs and sway bars would be great.

Probably a little bit down the road. We have a few other things to get out first.

Tekno was using a Serpent body during testing. There is a pic of it in this thread somewhere.

I'm sure either Proline, Jconcepts, and FTW will have a body for the EB48 soon I would imagine.
