Probably front page linkage material.

However - unless I'm wrong - the 22SCT already comes with the carbide diff and thrust balls, the 3* LRC toe plate and 5* caster blocks.
It does come with the tungsten diff and thrust balls and the 3 deg lrc plate, but it comes with 10 deg front blocks.

They have no inner ribbing and come with fairly firm nicely shaped open cell foam.





Where did you get yours? I just got a pair for a great price.

So it's 40 Deg Caster overall box stock? 30 Deg pivot plus 10 Deg block. And the team is running what 25 Deg pivot and 5 Deg blocks for 30 Deg total?

The truck is setup out of the box a little more forgiving and for more med to lower bite. The team ran 25/5 at Hotrod which is high bite blue groove. Give the kit setup a try and tune from there

That's what I was planning to do for the end of the outdoor season out here as most stuff is low bite. Once we go inside for the winter I'll play around with other settings.

That's assuming we get the truck before it starts snowing!

I would love to see that. I have run a set of ultra digits on my 8th scale on blue groove and got a full 4 days on them! Probably 5-6 practice runs, 4 rounds of quals and 3 mains. Still had good tread on them and the further down they get run the better they were!

Sounds like these would be perfect for Pegasus?

Greens would work pretty good at pegasus when it is wet. Reds for dry. As long as the groove is not too dusty. I think a soft Panther raptor would be a better tire for Peg though

I have a set Raptors for my 22 but I prefer the Jconcepts Hybrids as I get traction on all the conditions at peg with those.

I ordered a set of green digits off ebay and got a great deal so I will let you know how they work and yes I got the green compound.

The SC tread is quite a bit different then the buggy tread. Worth at least looking at. The tread has larger lugs then the 2wd.

I agree hybrids are a great tread pattern for conditions like Peg.

I run Clay Panther Rattlers and have great success.

JC Gold Barcodes
Proline MC Suburbs are popular as well.
