Replace the bearings with AVIDs and get the optional center brace, thats it! As long as you shim the difs properly they will last forever.

Took TQ today but with a combination of me traction rolling and a day dreaming Marshall I dropped back and finished 3rd overall. Truck is dialed in now but I'm going to go with a heavier away bar to help with my traction roll issue.

If its the orange one, lengthen your rear shocks 2- turns....Should help with the rear being loose on hard cornering.

I'm using the ten-scte shock, much longer than ts4 shocks.
I tuned the car to have oversteer when off throttle, and understeer when pushing. It's cold friday night, the traction isn't high at all.
Done 5 packs of practice today (50mins), getting stable low 16s laps, many low-mid 15s laps if I did the triple well. (fastest lap done by green truck is 14.9s, fastest lap I did in the video is 15.8s)


The triple is difficult because:
1. I was pushed to stand on the left side of the driver's stand, because the man on the right claimed it's his spot, even when I was standing there before he got there. He's fast but that's rude.
2. The jump is really difficult. To get a good jump , there's pretty much a small area you can land after the big jump, it need to be the inside lane, and you can't overshoot nor undershoot it. I was being a bit cautious so I usually overshoot it a bit, and didn't got too much into the inside lane.
3. Other people making mistakes can produce some messy problem. because it's right under the driver's stand, things can be less predictable. Smashing into those slow cars isn't a good idea, and whenever you can see something happens, you truck is pretty much already in the air. I almost hit the track marshal once, and that red truck is everywhere. All avoided with messy landing, lucky the truck hold up well.
4. After finished the race, I had about 10mins with the truck. The last time I drove it was mid Dec, 2012. I'm quite happy that I can still jump it almost right.

Default TS4

Well after a grueling main yesterday in our Mike Reedy Memorial SC Series I was able to pull off the win with the main only being the 7th pack through my truck it ran great and very fast. With this being said has anyone figured out how to get more steering throw out of the truck it just doesn't seem to turn sharp enough for me.

I run 7,10,5 in my diffs and can hug the pipes in corners. 5,7,3 gives a lot of steering as well as 5,5,2 and 7,7,3. The heavier fluids causes my truck to push. Out of everything I have tried I like the 7.10,5 the best

Check you endpoints of steering make sure your wheels are turning all the way. I had to reset my steering rack and linkages a few times until I got it right. The ball cup will hit the diff case and can limit your turning.
