Yeah I like how 30/0 sits on the rear a little more. The setup has piston callouts.

Front 1.5mm 2 hole on 27.5wt and rear is 1.6mm 2 hole pistons on 30wt.

Or maybe you were asking how I got them. I made them.

it should be set so it doesn't "quack like a duck" and from there for feeling is what i have been taught....right???

Surprisingly this does work with AE diffs. That's how I set it on my b4.1 - easy peazy. The 22 diff takes more feel and adjustment trackside.

the AE big bore pistons also works if you don't want to make your own. I installed the 1.5 and 1.6 AE pistons in my 22sct and they work well. The truck does seem to settle quicker and does not become as unsettled over sharp impact rhythm sections. I'm still going to make some from TLR pistons to try out as well.

What would be the most powerful blinky 17.5 gearing for a strong low end pull with great top speed? Thanks!

Oasis, the AE ones with Part #'s are listed on the first page. One of the benefits to the AE pistons rather than making them on your own, is that the flashing on the AE pistons come from the top so they're truly perfectly round as opposed to the TLR pistons that are attached to the parts tree from the side. So when you cut the flashing off the TLR ones, they're not "perfect" I know it could be fixed with sanding and careful knifework, but you can just buy the AE ones and not have to glue any holes and already have them perfect and ready to use out of the package.

I'm having some idler gear issues. The first set lasted a pretty long time but the second set I striped one out in one practice night. When I put the trany together everything spun really nice. Any ideas?

Anyhow, first night out with the truck and a random setup and it ran very well. As a blinky 17.5, I beat all the mod SC trucks and the normal fast guys came 1st/2nd... not bad for a new truck/class. I can't wait to get her dialed.

@Scott, thanks for starting the thread and most of all... Keeping the first post alive! Cya at WCRC or OCRC soon.

I snap a pic from my phone. Upload it to my photobucket account. Then copy the image code into my post.

I am running full packs in my SCT and 22T at this time but I run mod. If I was running 17.5 I would work on setting up the truck around the shorty pack as the 100g difference in weight is a big deal IMO.
