Default Stock body design

I wish losi would of taken some of the design ques from Proline. Every engineer learns that displacing material adds rigidity. Thats why automobiles have ribs in the floor panels and other structural areas. Every body vent in my flotek body is surrounded by displaced material to make it strong. After cutting the holes in my so called high performance losi body it feels super flimsy. Cutting holes in flat areas of the body just weakens the whole thing. After a couple of hits this thing is going to crack all over the place. Maybe I should do the old drywall mesh and shoe goo trick.

Got my support kit in the Speedtechrc.com deal, buy the truck and support kit tossed in free.
Pretty sure the deal is off the table now but those guys are still the place to shop for deals.

Did your support kit come with shorter springs than what came on the truck? I tried to use the pink ones and the hock screw had to be all the way down just to to get 24mm ride.

Thanks...

I'll try that out. It's ok now but I want it good..

yes, the rear springs in my support kit are the same length as the buggy rears which are shorter than the SCT rears.
It was explained to me that the shorter spring of the same color/rate is more progressive which is what the SCT responds better to. Kinda same reason they run sway bars on higher traction surfaces.
My collars are down near the bottom also, running full size battery pack, ride height rear 28mm front 29mm.

Had 4 hours of practice and tune with GNS Racing and others last night. The 22SCT is amazing fast lap for the night was a 16.6, super fast, I never broke into the 16 second bracket all night, but was able to turn some very consistant laps 5 17.0 in a row with traffic.

Question to Frank or Casper, the truck feels very planted, but is a little lazy in the corners (alot of body roll), currently have front and rear mounts set at the inside/2 mounting position. If I move both front and rear to the inside/1, mounting position, will it keep the same handling characteristics but reduce the body roll?

I should have tried this last night, but didn't think of it until today!

Try moving the rear shock mounting out 1 or 2 on the top. I found this reducing body roll and gained rear grip. This maybe need now since we do not have rear sway bars yet.
