I just checked back and Frank says he's using the 22 2.0 axles b/c he thinks they rotate a little better and don't bind as much as the 22 SCT's
That's weird, I thought the axles were exactly the same with the 22 2.0 just having a longer thread on it. Don't see how one would bind more than the other but hope that's the case because it cost me 35 bucks for a set of axles.

The CVA always creates bind, and the distance from the CVA pin and slug to the inner and outer hinge pins can affect the cars handling greatly.

Why are so many of the set-up sheets using buggy rear springs? Why use those over the truck springs?

All things being equal except for the length, a shorter spring will reach full compression quicker (coil bind). Springs naturally get more firm near full compression. So running a short spring will make it a bit more progressive (essentially the same rates when the springs are fully extended, but shorter springs gets firmer quicker).

i dont think its like that.
the buggy spring is just more progressive then a truck spring.
and the LF are designed to be less progressive,
but i dont know if they are less progressive then the truck springs, Frank or Casper may know the answer.

Loose spring at full droop........????

I have my front ride height set at 26.5mm, shock unscrewed 3 turns, no limiters, blue truck springs (dunford/casper setup). When the front arms are at full droop and the shock extended, the spring is under no tension and actually has 2mm of vertical play. Seems like the spring can become unseated in the air. Is this ok?

So running a short spring will make it progressive, yeah but I thought buggy springs were progressive And you goehm just won what's behind door number one lol. As far as the shock being fully extended allowing the spring to become unseated I also wonder about that.

I will probably pick up a 22SCT in a few month... Is it possible that there will be a 2.0 update soon (this year)?
Thanks

According to what Frank Root has posted numerous times on this thread the answer unfortunately a big fat no.

Thanks! Sorry for asking again

I hope there is at least an update to the optional gear diff... as I would plan to use it a lot for high traction carpet/astro

No need to be sorry, heck hopefully enough people will e-mail them and ask in forums that they will take note that we would lke to see an updated kit like a 2.0
I know Frank is reading this too so........maybe a hint will get dropped by accident or something....LOL
