are you using some very stiff front spring? or you've added too much weight in the rear?
silvers in the front, only added 84g. you have to remember that when you go stiffer spring you go heavier on the damping and vice versa. the truck ran well with yellows in the rear but as I learned on the SC10 stiffer rear springs make a world of difference in balance. Ryan Lutz was the first to come across this . If you add weight you must add stiffer springs to compensate for it or your rebound will severely suffer. The track you run on is super smooth and tight, our tracks are rutted out and beat to death!!
this is the "smooth" one!!

this is the rough/low grip track

Got the axial 50mm shock shaft.
Does give me around 6mm more travel, great.
But it doesn't support tlr 22 pistons, piston is too thick.
I took out the stock piston, sand it thinner and put it on.

What was the problem with the stock piston?
stock piston is 6 hole, what's that comparing with losi's 4 holes (i.e. losi 56 piston)?

For me personally, I could not slow down the reaction of the shocks with the stocks. I was going up / up on the fluids. Reading on here, i decided to try the losi pistons, saw better reaction from shocks on the rebound and seem more settled on the track. At least, that is what i saw.

what durango people do is to glue up 2-3 holes.
Seems the desc410r has the same style shock piston, 6 holes 1.2-1.4.

any picture of the track you are running on? big and smooth?

grey is the softest losi has I believe.
and red is the 3rd hardest for 22b rear springs. (silver, orange, red)
I started with yellow in the front, as someone's setup earlier. Doesn't seems to work. then changed to pink, works okay.
slight worried about changing to red, since our track is not so bumpy. if there's a bumpy track, and I need a pink/yellow front, there won't be an option for the rear anymore.

yes, evohobbies has some TS4 parts now.
Yep, I'm trying to stock as much as I can at the moment.

get grey rear spring as well.
Mine was running well with silver front and white rear. Grey rear could be useful.

you need captured rod end in the front:


they've used the traxxas titanium upgrade and seems working.
I'm using lunsford 3.5mm turnbuckles with losi captured rod ends.

are they the same ball ends and rod ends as the 4wd buggy? I've used the associated ti balls with RPM rod ends with success on all my Team C cars. The 3mm shafts with the standard ball size. I also use lunsford turnbuckles.

i don't have the 4wd buggy, but I do expect the same rod ends. it's 3mm turnbuckles stock.
Anyways, because of the caster, you need a captured rod end in the front, at least. Otherwise, side impact on front wheel will take it off quite easily.

are you running the 13deg caster blocks? the pictures of the trucks on the first couple pages don't look that bad on the camber link angles. I have no issues on my 4wd buggy and it is the same design. It it something that shaving a tad of the ball cup can fix?

I have yet to pop a ball cup on any of my TeamC vehicles!!

BTW guys testing lots of rear springs and right now i am using the AE RC8.2 green fronts on the rear with adapters it has been the best spring so far with the added weight. The SC104x4 green fronts are 3.5 and white fronts are 3.9, will give them a shot next week. The jumping is so much better with the 4.0's!!
Also went up to 15/15/7 on dif fluids

So my TS4 is on the way. I'm looking at bodies..... I like the slammed ones that have more of a fastback look. The raptors, and flotek. I also kinda like the original TS2 body. I heard they are stout. What are the opinions on the bodies you guys run. parachute effects and strength. thanks!

I have on my TS4, 3 times.
with stock ball cup, 3mins after entering the outdoor track.
All you need is some side impact, preferably on the front wheel.

TS4 has body with it, pretty good looking one.
Though I'm still using my old proline F150 raptor, with most of the cut outs. it is strong (or my driving still improves)
