Casper,I am running 0deg front casters and I have too much turn in..will 5deg help with mid/exit steering?I don't really understand how caster effects steering..Please explain..

Thanks,
More caster will smooth middle though exit steering. Less caster will give more on power steering. You can play with 3 and 5 as TLR offers both for fine tuning. Just a heads up you don't have to jump all the way to 5

Do you really think there were never high powered motors until BL came along?
You might think it necessary, but that's because you don't know any better.

For some dumb reason, when i posted this, i thought Losi racer was talking about the idler gear in the trans. but i have never had a spur issue either. WOW, the older i get.........

Can you guys help me with what bodies will fit the 22SCT? I'm really not a fan of painting bodies or paying $50 for a sticker that goes on them. There's a lot of XXX-SCT and stuff like this: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ilver-Red-Blue
That are available for a very reasonable price. Like these: http://www.amainhobbies.com/advanced...d+short+course

So anyway, if someone has fit any of these bodies on reasonably well please let me know which ones will work.

i don't know about the vts, but I actually calculated the surface area of the Avid Tiad slipper vs. the stock losi slipper.
I came up with abotu 700 square mm of surface area on the avid, and over 800 square mm on the stock slipper.

the one thing I don't like about this truck is the awckard spacing of the body mounts.
the extra day the engineers could have spent to get the body mounts to line up with the TEN-SCTE would have made me all that much happier with the truck overall.
and the body mounts are uber flimsy on top of that.
I know the Jconcepts Hiflow fits and the Jconcepts Chevrolet 1500 body does as well. (local guy I ran with has a 22sct runs the JC chevy)

AndrewTom or anyone else..I purchased this truck used here on the forums.
Does anyone know what body this is? I ran this truck for the first time saturday,and I would think there are bodies out there that are more air friendly? Please give me your thoughts..

thats a ford body. you can tell by the side window, that little step down. it looks like the Parma Raptor body to me, a front grill view would help a lot.
The stock tlr hiflow body is really good for anti-parachuting in my opinion. my XXX-SCT had a PL flowtek, and the TLR feels a lot more stable in tha air. and its easily 2 oz lighter then the flow tek.
the Jconcepts HiFlow should be good. thats my next body, so once I get one, I will let you guys know how I like it.
someone else on here had the JC hiflow body.

the associated slipper
I think ScottKelly911 has the VTS on his truck, he should be able to tell you if it fits under the gear cover. I don't think it does, but I don't have one.

Ryan/Casper or anyone that may know the answer. Im having a major problem getting my truck around the track consistently. Im running the ryan/casper setup and it feels great on landings and straights but it has way to much steering.

If i run suburbs in the rears ans either barcodes or wishbones in front... It turns like a bus. If i run suburbs in front, it traction rolls on low or highspeed. I cant seem to find a good middle ground.

Can anyone tell me what parts of the setup deal with steering so i can play with those settings?

Thanks in advance
