Well I'm ready to say goodbye to my XXX SCT - Rad good last night but it's time to go!
same here, i had the best time in the second qualifier last night. still started 3rd in amain, guy in 4th wrecked me on the start. i was in dead last throught the first corner (6th), i made it all the way back up to 3rd, and i was catching 2nd, and extra 2mins would have been enough. good ol XXX-SCT, keeps the sc10's fighting!

i would guess that both use a 4mm wrench, because im sure there are not that many 3.5 mm wrenches out there. i think the different sizes is thickness of the turnbuckle not keyed for the wrench. im not sure, but thats my current understanding.
anyone know better/different?

It's the size of the shaft, not the hex.
Just fitted them, so thought I'd take a pic.

LMAO!!!

now back to our regularly scheduled programming:

so if the truck is at the ROAR limit for width, why would you want to buy hexes that are wider than stock (putting it over width)?

While the 22-SCT was not completely dialed in, it handled well enough at 90% that it made me a believer. Even though I had to feather the truck around the track with the 6.5 motor it had in it, the truck just danced around the track and went anywhere I wanted it to go with ease. The truck was very quick through the infield and tight turns. It did have just a touch too much turn in for me but would be easy to tune. One thing that really impressed me was how well this truck jumps. It takes off very light and lands perfect off every jump. Never got out of shape and you could get right on the throttle and power out. Very impressed with this truck. So much so that I hate to say.....I am going to have to order one and put an 8.5 motor in it.
8.5 yea....just what you need..... I had to laugh when I saw your text last night, you must have been up ALL.....night reading on the truck. I was passed out, look at who said I'm going to wait on getting one till I see how yours is. Guess thats all out the window now. HaHa.... and that was with no weight in it.

The rear is not at ROAR maximum width so you are able to use the wider offset aluminum hexes on the 22 SCT. The front is at maximum width with the stock hexes and is the reason we are not offering additional front hexes.

I knew I should have hung out and drove that thing. You're XXX is dialed for sure Mike but the SCT will have a greater opp to be even better. Better get you're name on the list, they are going fast..

Yeah but only with the 3 deg toe block. If you run more toe then 1.5 would make the truck too wide so the +offset you run is dependent on the toe in block you use.

Well, I have two on order and if they come in within the next ten days it will not be me as i do not get back until the first week of Sept. I know Nagler is first on the list when they arrive so my bet is him or you

Guess we will see !!!
