Do this easy mod

This was a known issue but they decided to release the truck with this "service annoucement" instead of delaying the truck a couple months because of it. It is very easy to do and a simple fix. It is only needed for the steering link ball cups!

Where does it say that. I am not disputing you just don't know where you read that. My kit came with a diagram of what to cut out in the sticker bag with a diagram on what holes to cut in the body.

They released this body after the first one. This is a different part number they also have the body without vents cut which is what you can buy today and is what comes with the kit.

We get the TLR8060 with the kit. Exact same body but vents not cut out.

The 61 pre cut body is scheduled for release in november.

That is the OPTIONAL Pre-cut body available separately. That is not the body that comes in the kit. The kit body is not cut out.

No, the RX is mounted right behind the Servo.

I suggest 17/86 for a 7.5T and 18/86 for an 8.5T

To bad they don't have a shim that you could reverse to take a little of the 30 kick out
You can't make a reverse shim without drastically changing the roll center of the front end.

I expect most ESC's to require a 3" extension, I know it is required for the Orion R10 Pro.

First off, TLR8061 does come with all the vent holes cut, except the rectangle in the back of the rear fenders, which can help reliability. It is awesome, so fast and easy.

Question to the pros on here, what servo are u guys running on the 22sct?
The servo I'm running is Align 610 which is just like a savox 1257, I believe that number is right.
Anyways the servo rubs on the link, and is too close for me , are u guys running a smaller servo , that is flater in the front ?
Thanks for the help
Ps I use no shims, also my tekin rs is glitching so now have to run a cap
I run the Spektrum S6040 servo and I love it.

Did you do the modification to the ball up? Check it out here, that should take care of the issue.

How was the truck loose? What type of track, maybe a youtube video link? What tires did you run, and what tires to the fast guys at your track run? Was the truck loose entry, middle, or exit? Was it not rolling into the grip enough, or rolling too hard, dumping and sliding?

I did the quick mod to the ball cups and still pop off with the suspention compressed. So to fix that even futher I tapered the edge of the rack with my dremel and the ball cup right where the hex ends and dips down to the cup. Wish I could take a pic of it. Basiclly compress te suspention and watch the ball cup hit the rack and pop the cup off.

I did do the ball cup mod but may have taken alittle too much off of one of them I'll try getting some new ones..

I'll try to get a video next week we have a race on labor day. Here's a link to the track page you can at least see what the track looks like in the photos.

I also installed the aluminum steering rack and it completely bound up, it must have gouged the plastic and just got stuck I intstalled the plastic one just as a quick fix so I need to look into that also.
