Casper, I dont know if you saw my post earlier. I put your latest set on my truck last week. It handles great. I even won the SC class for the first time. But the question i have is, when the front shocks are fully extended, there is a gap between the spring adjuster and the spring. Is that the way it is supposed to be?

Anyways I moved the rear hubs all the way forward, I switched out to a gear diff, and turned my throttle expo up. All that was a night and day difference as I finished 1st, 2nd, then a bad tire change put me in 4th in the main. Not sure what else is left to adjust except tires but I'm almost there.
Maybe your front end is too well planted, that will cause hooking.
You could try one or more of the following to make the front end push more:
Heavier front springs, thicker front shock oil, front sway bar and no rear bar, reduce your steering travel limit, move the battery back.

Sorry I missed that. Mine are the same way and this is ok. We ran a similar situation with "buggy" front springs on the XXX-T and XXX-SCT.

Glad you are having success with the setup!

Would more toe in also help in more forward bite on the straight? I have the stock 3deg... maybe a 3.5? not sure what i would loose by adding more toe in.

My understanding is adding more toe slows you down a bit by adding more resistance/traction, this is really only an issue in Stock racing. Mod guys I know tend to run 4* including myself because there is enough power there that the extra resistance won't matter vs the gained traction. example on my stock 22 buggy I run 3* and am considering going down to 2*.

Hey guys,

Built my shocks on the 22sct. The question I have is why do the shock springs rub against the shock bodies. I moved them around turned them upside down to try and find a smooth spot and normally I can but with these springs I couldn't. Is that fairly normal and does the spring hitting the shock body hamper dampining? Thanks.

The springs are not going to be perfectly flat on both ends so a slight rub is pretty normal.

Thanks Casper,

One more question on wheel hexes. If I go with the 1.5mm 22 frt hexes and the 1.5mm 22sct rear hexes will this help with traction on loose bumpy tracks and is it still ROAR legal? Thanks

Front yes legal. Should be slightly more stable.

Rears assuming you are not running a lot of toe it will be legal. Wider rear end should have some more forward bite narrower rear more side bite.

If it's too fat for the holes, check your packaging to make sure you didnt accidentally buy the threaded hingepins. You need the threaded Kingpins check front page post for the correct part numbers.
