I'm still running my original rack from August. I think it gets better with a little more slop and doesn't bind.

Does 7+7 equal 14?

It's a truck to truck basis.i had one rack that would catch on me at random times but it was only when I turned right and while the suspension was compressed.I went through my whole truck replaced everything but the rack because it was free Everytime I checked it.my buddies was doing the same thing and when he replaced the rack it stopped.After about two weeks if it driving me crazy I finally said fine ill replace the rack.Problem solved.Niw I just saved self the aggravation and replace it before it gets too sloppy

Sometimes I wish there was "like" button, or a "+1"

Casper, Do you have a suggestions for gearing for 13.5 blinky?

This depends on motor and endbell timing but using an educated guess I would start in the 23-24/76 range and adjust from there.

Casper, My son and I have two 22sct's there both setup with tekin RS ESC's driving Ballistic 17.5t motors we are just getting in to racing (blinky) the track is indoor clay medium/high traction what would be a good starting point for gearing?

Novak Ballistic motors tend to run a little on the hot side. I would start 25/76 and go up from there temp permitting. You want to keep the motors under the 160-180F range if possible.

i tried out the setup with the droop that casper mentioned with no limiters and turning out the eyelets. Thanks casper, i can now take the sweaper at the local track at almost twice the speed and the truck handles like its on rails now. Very forgiving on the whoop section and doesnt have any on power spin outs now. I didnt realize how much droop on a 2wd truck mattered until i did what you said. "the fast guy" was there today at the track during lunch break when i went and i was staying with him the whole time. More than pleased with the truck. Best money ever spent IMO for a short course. Great job Losi on this truck. By the way, he was running an sc10.
