Also running the gen 2. After 10 min final temps are around the 60c area in Qld heat.
Good idea to check temps every few minutes when gearing up.

I don't know if being in that small of a range is that important, but try to keep it under 160*, and you should be fine. over 170 is pushing it a little. NEVER over 180

As I understand it too much antisquat = not enough weight transfer, lowering initial traction. Or is this incorrect?
I agree, if you need the forward bite, run less anti-squat. kit set-up is 2*; I say run 1* or 0* if you need the forward bite, and try 4* rear toe.

I also race on outdoor clay tracks with a fair size straight on all tracks were i need a bit more Top end..
Can anyone help
YES, the number of turns and./or Kv rating of a motor has a big role in the gearing.
the manual has a recommended starting points for gearing. keep the motor below 160*, and check the motor temp every 3 minutes while testing.
ask aroung at your local track, try and see what is a popular range for FDR's at your track.

at my track, people (including myself) are running 17.5 blinky; and most are in the 6.8 to 7.6 FDR area.

nope, the 22SCt shares the same offset as the Ten-SCTE. the XXX-SCT wheel is similar to the SC10 +3mm offset. they will add a few mm to your 22sct.
if you ran the PL front hubs, and the Losi xxxsct to Ten SCTE adapters, then you would be able to use the same wheels.

No the 22SCT has the same offset as the SCTE. The stock XXX-SCT whieels will make the 22-SCT too wide. (fronts won't work at all as 22-SCT uses hexes front and rear.)

Casper, Im running the ryan\casper setup and its working great. However im having a very hard time keeping my truck steady on the straight away. It pretty much ice skates the whole time until i let off the throttle to get it stabalized. Could it be i need to loosen my clutch a bit? The only thing im running different on your setup is i have a gear diff instead of the ball diff. Currently running 7000 oil on the gear. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you running mod? I had very poor results running the gear diff with a mod motor. It could not put the power down smoothly and consistantly and would skate on the straights. 17.5 was OK with the gear diff, but overall the ball diff seems to be the way to go.

Hum. What tires are you running? Maybe a bar type tire in the rear (barcode/suburb) and a smaller pin tire up front (pressure point/wishbone)

I have not had issues with the truck swaying on power. May be too agressive a front tire is my guess.

Yes running a 8.5 and yeah i can see how the gear diff may be part of the problem...

I was originally running barcodes on all 4's but was not getting very good traction so i switched to Suburbs all around. I will try suburbs in back and wishbones up front. Which tires do you run casper?
