One thing I can say with absolut certanty is that te stock pistons are no good( even though they are very nice pistons in their own right ), they simply do not have enough pack so you have to run too thick of a shock oil, which results in a stiff and twitchy truck. I ran the stock pistons with 35wt front and 30wt rear, and it was ok, the truck drove well but it was upsettled in many spots on the track, and the back end wanted to come up off jumps. When I drove Marcus' truck it was much more planted, had more steering and was much more stable, and the back end didnt want to bronco buck of the jumps like mine did........

Some info here:
To get more droop, traxxas slash 4x4 front TiNi shafts add 2mm more droop part# 1664T
Also, traxxas 39mm aluminum links work for the steering and front camber links, and the 59mm links work well for the rear.

Alright, for you guys who will be getting the dual stage pistons for your TS4, here is a quick build to show you how to build the shock with these pistons.
http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...l#post11098314
You guys are gonna love the piston and oil setup.
Im running
32.5wt 1.1/1.2 with losi red springs in the front.
250cst 1.2/1.3 with losi yellow springs in the rear.

I did some testing of the TS4 at a track that I have not run it at yet, and also tried out the dual stage pistons on a rough bumpy small track, and found the setup to be spot on! What that means is tht the setup workes on two totaly different track condition. I managed to best my fastest lap of my losi which I have been running for months at the track the first time at the track with the TS4! The truck did everything the Losi did, but better, and my diff setup was way off! I was running 10/10/5, but it was way to thick. If I got off line and into the dust, it got pretty squirly. Im gonna drop the oils to 5/5/3. I am extremely happy with the way this truck drives, and cant wait to get the whole setup dialed!

Thanks again Matt for the help! Mantis and I got to race our TS4 for the first time on Friday night. He took 1st and I took second ahead of a field of Losi. I also raced on Saturday and took 1st. I spent all Friday aside from racing tuning and found that this truck is very responsive to it. Also, the RC plates that mantis sells allowed me to dial it in even more. I also let a couple others drive my TS4 and they loved it.

I pulled off the win but wasnt happy with my setup, it was great all day long and went to crap when the races started?? So im in the lab now working on a new setup! Sym and i had completely opposite setups. Damon had fast lap by 3 tenths on me but i stayed out of trouble.

I put my truck on the scales a few minutes ago and to my surprise the truck is 51/49 with equal ride heights! that is good news , looking at it you would think it was front heavy but not much at all. I really want to change the entire setup but its not really needed, only minor changes, it just seems to be very aggressive in the front and i think it needs a softer rear spring as . so this week I am going to switch to bladder shocks 10k front dif fluid and losi white springs with/without the helper springs. If that doesnt work i will go Syms route and lower front and rear roll centers but i will remove both sway bars and see how that works. The truck is very responsive to change.

NICE!!! What about moving to the outer hole on the hub. That seem to reduce some of that front end aggressiveness for me (at least i thought it did)

i put losi silver 22b rears on the front to give the front more lift off the jumps but lost steering, so i removed the front swaybar. On the rear I put white losi 22t rears on the back. Then I raised the inner camber link front and rear. The car is less twitchy, and more stable, it has alot of grip on and off power. I just need a little more on power exit steering, other than theat, the car is very responsive but stable and easy to drive. I also hit my fastes lap at M&M by more than a second faster than my losi, I hit a 22.7 which is pretty freaking fast.
