I don't know if this is your issue with binding. Is the front clip attached to the chassis? With the front off the chassis and the arms are dropped all they way downward my steering can bind but attached to the chassis it won't bind because they don't drop as much. That's what I noticed building anyways so it may or may not help you.

Do you have the caster blocks backwards ie the left block on the right side and right block on the left. Maybe you have too much negative camber at the moment.

Unless your truck is really getting blown around, I haven't found much advantage to the fully cut body. The roof vents in particular are pretty prone to cracking.
Thanks for the input Grandturk

Finally got to run the 2.0 last night on out indoor clay w/basically box setup except #2 pistons in front, #3 pistons in the rear and 5/7/2 diffs. I TQ'd and won the club night w/faster and more consistent laps then w/my Durango. The truck is fast and forgiving! Great job TLR! It's a dream to drive!
I did get the 200mm sensor wire from the pro4 box to fit but the battery tray needs to be all the way back and it's tight.

4wd trucks are heavy enough and the 4wd braking give better control of the car in the air so the holes are not as critical for the 4wd as they are for the 2wd. The venting of the body saves some weight as well as creates a little more downforce so it is still recommended for the 4wd but jumping handling (parachute effect) will not be as noticable with these trucks.

yea when I pick up another 1 of these bodies I'm only cutting a few holes, but jumping this truck is and overall handling is on point

Thumbs up I just got the E Mail from HH

So my Parts are shipped, I'm happy to upgrade this old girl. She started as a 810 Nitro... I made her an SC Truck with some of the first available parts to make her a Electric conversion. Making sure she is always Fresh and ready. Now she gets a bumper to bumper rebuild. I'll share some pic as the Re Build goes on.
