Looks good! I'm digging the simplicity of the truck. TLR hit the nail on the head with this SC. They did not leave ANY room for aftermarket parts! HAHA! They monopolized their own truck

LOL, thanks...but there is always room for hop ups as lots of companies make stuff just because people will buy it. And some like to play around with weight (titanium stuff). And hey...we have a cool carbon battery strap (totally not a NEED, but it sure looks cool).

I am going to go Tekin 4600 so now I need to wait for it to arrive

I driven this truck now for about 8 packs and I am really impressed with the handling using the out of the box set up and I am prety happy, I am not using the 2 hole pistons

Running barcodes on a 100% clay track and the response is great. I really liked my 1.0 but this one is much better planted in my opinion

So nice to hear some good feedback. The weight balance and the camber link holes work hand in hand to really help excel this truck to the next level.

The bell cranks are plastic. Ackerman bar is metal, Steering posts are metal.

Can someone explain the setup sheet where it says bump steer. I pretty much know what it is but how to change it one the car. It says up on the setup sheet. Does that mean the rod end that connects to the bell crank at the center of the car should be up as high as possible? If thats the case then the manual shows it as low as possible. What about at the spindle? The ball end has a spacer on one side so if it is, bump steer up, the washer should be on the bottom at the bell crank. Is that right? Sorry if your all lost. I'm doin the best I can.
Thanks guys.
