I still run the spacer in the stock location, I just switched my kick angle and caster block to get more steering.

I did it to try and since my steering at the time felt good I kinda wanted to see how it felt so I move them to shorter position. I notice a tad more steering but not enough to upset my truck so I just kinda left them short after that.

I have not had the truck but for 2 weeks and and my new buggy only about 5 days so I just didn't get to mess around much with changing many things. Just wanted to run the base setup til I got good and use to it first.

Traxxass steering links installed after ball cup popped twice in one heat in Friday night. Very tight technical track with lots of rubbing = ain't got no time for no popping ball cups, fool!

I did ballcup mod, and they still popped off, most times I was looking for the complete camber link on the track.. It's weird as I've had the buggy since it first come out and never had any pop off, even with some massive wrecks..
Anyway, problem solved now with traxxax parts.
Loving the truck

Yes

Ball Cup Issues
No

Ball Cup Mod
No

Revised Ball Cups
Yes


Note: I've never had a revised ball cup pop off until yesterday when I told someone I didn't have problems with the revised ball cups popping off. I put the car on the track, grazed a pipe as I was going about 1/8 speed to head to the starting grid and off it came. No problems before or since then though - so the first rule of ball cup issues is to not talk about ball cup issues.

Plastic Servo Horn
Did at first, switched when it was time to replace the steering rack

Aluminium Servo Horn
Yes

Ball Cup Issues
nothing abnormal, popped 2 times on the old style cups directly related to crash

Ball Cup Mod
Yes, I did mod the 1st set

Revised Ball Cups
Yep, when they 1st came out, only put them on the 4 steering ends, saved the others for spares.

Mod steering rack for clearance
Yep, do that also. The new cups will still hit the rack on full compression.

This is true!

Actually I had been having very good luck with ball cups. Besides popping the first day I ran the truck I had very few incidents following until this past Friday. New track - tight and technical - and sure enough I piped it a couple of times. One cup popped the first Time. The second time the whole link went flying - so off came the ball cups and on went the traxxass links.

Time to finally do my 22T as well

The spacer is for switching between trailing and inline spindles. Run it behind the trailing spindle and in front of the inline spindles.
