I am sure this has been answered, on the rear hubs what would be the handling changes of the ball stud in the different mounting holes. If I use the 1st row, second row or third row ?.

changing the length of the links has an effect on stability and camber gain.
there are a lot of helpful websites out there to help.
XXXdad has a good thread linked.

(off topic) I have the Avid Triad. Loving it thus far; it works really well! I was a little quick to give up at first, but now that i have a little more experience setting slippers, I have it figured out now. I am going to order the Red pads, supposedly more aggressive lock up.

Scott did a nice how to on the VTS slipper. i remember you need to put like 3mm behind the gear cover to gain clearance for all the drive plates.

Off topic here too, just a quick question, how did you set your triad for this truck, being that its sort of heavier than most. Did you set it up with a 1 to 2 inch lift or with just a lift movement without actually lifting the tires off the table?

I use the Triad slipper. Works well: very smooth and consistent once you get it set. Lasts a long time, too. I haven't had to reset mine yet. Set it just like you normally would any other slipper. However I suggest you start with the nut screwed tighter than you might with a standard slipper. There is a lot of stuff to compress. Also, the pads are small and tend to glaze easily. Keep that in mind while tuning the slipper. Wheel lift method doesn't work with an SCT. The front is too heavy. Besides, you want to set it for the specific local conditions. I set it loose enough to get good acceleration without wheel spin that causes the SCT to spin out at full throttle from a dead start, but tight enough to clear all the obstacles on the track. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I never do the bench test. on the side of my house, I have about 30ft of concrete. I punch full throttle from dead stop, and listen for the slipper. I try to get a baseline. I run 17.5 blinky, but for the first 1-2 feet i try to let it slip. I typically start with it tightened down a bit, but not locked.
EDIT: works good for me for a baseline setting.
same for my 22T w/10.5.

Thank you for the info, i currently have mine set to lift about 2 inches so that may be the reason I have to be easy on the throttle when turning into the straight and punching it.

Cool thanks. I have mine locked down on the 22buggy and works great, just trying to now figure it out on my sct.

Hey guys, I'm buying the tlr 22sct rtr for my brother and I'm wondering if the included esc will be able to handle a 10.5?
We have a 10.5 class rule for sct in Australia
