I've got a 22B and run "shorty" packs. Considering getting a 22SCT but don't want to have to get another pair of batteries. Running some added weight in combination with the "Shorty" pack would be same as running a standard length pack right? Think I could just add some lead weights behind or in front of the battery to make up for lost weight.

Anyone running a 10.5 motor yet? I'm trying to figure out gearing for a 10.5 tekin redline. I was running 84/23 as per Casper on my XXX-SCT but I know this is a little heavier.

ball cup performance:

got to run my truck for the first time yesterday. put about 5 or 6 packs through it. naturally the truck took some decent hits. i had a ball cup pop off once. it happened when the truck basically landed on one of the front tires off a jump (so i didn't hit a pipe or anything). not bad at all. two other buddies put 4 to 5 packs through their trucks and they never popped one off.

so basically i don't think it's an issue. certainly not a big one.

the truck handled great on our loose, hardpack outdoor track. when i went to the higher grip indoor track, the truck definitely felt a bit lazy. i raised the ride height and that definitely helped but the suspension needs to be stiffened up to run a higher grip track.

Any bearing shop should have them. just take one in for them to size up

Witnessed a guys 22sct at track with only trimmed cups pop the steering rack balls coming down from biggest jump on track. Swapped to smaller xxx-sct rods,balls, and cups and still did it. Ended up with .030 washer under ball stud and i think he might of filed a little bit.Finished 5min qual and 8min main w/o a popped cup and posted lowest lap time ever on track with short course truck, didnt win but pretty impressive for his first time out with truck. Its a shame that such a nice truck can get bashed, seems it shouldnt be in those hands in the first place, they may want to stick with a RTR so they can blame someone else since there's no way they could've made a mistake assembling and setup ;-) You never get the complete story, if you did you'd have an obvious answer .

Yes, you can run extra weight to off-set the shorty packs, but if you are running stock, Travis Brock's setup is for a shorty pack, so I might suggest trying that.

Here are the gearing recommendations from the manual:


I'd start there and adjust accordingly depending on heat and performance.

Actually I think you're in a great position if you already have shorties - run them if you got 'em. You can then add the weight wherever needed most.

Coming in lighter than (ROAR) regs is always nice because you can choose where you add weight. When you're heavier your choices become more limited.

They're all 2.43:1 internal gear ratio for standard (rear) configuration. Though, I don't know if you convert to a mid-motor if that changes the ratio (since you add another idler gear).
