Broke the center front drive pin lastnite in the second qual and the track store had Tekno cvd's for $18 or losi for $14, I'll give the Tekno a shot, they seem to make great hardened parts. That was the first broken part since I got the truck on it's release. Very pleased!

Do I have a problem somewhere? Has anyone elese had this issue with the standard setup.
Give the new setup Dunford posted a shot. He has added a bit more steering to the truck without giving up rear stability. Make sure you look at the details. Shock length (droop), ride height and make sure the rear arms are not bound and sway bars don't have too much play all that little stuff. It all adds up.

How did you guys do at Jbrl yesterday? Did you run the new set up there.

Hay Ryan did you get a chance to measure the length of your shocks at full droop? I did the turns out on the shaft ends and I got 89mm in the front and 103mm in the rear. Is that about right?

Btw, is this a stupid idea for practice runs? The Pro4HD 1850 as motor in this case.

Now I'm moving outside onto lower bite tracks so things will change more.
Corner entry speed. Really bad. I'm going to give Casper's suggestion a shot.

Thanks. I'll give it a shot.

Lipos are 2 x 2S shorties in serial, so 4S combined with a 1850kv Tekin HD motor.

Point? Keep temps low and amps at reasonable level without sacrifing any expensivse batteries. Controlling the punch/power by limiting CL in ESC and EPA on the TX.

Only downsides are of course the added weight, 90g more on one side.
I have'nt tried this yet. Only an idea for a practice setup for a hight traction track where the electronics are put to a max on 2S.

Get the pro4 HD 4300 and some protek 100c 7000 mah stick packs. Tons of power and good run time as well. Able to make 8min main and practice laps as well. I think I saw some posts out there that amainhobbies has a 10% off $100 going on right now.

hey guys, I am helping a friend purchase his first racer and he decided it would be the losi scte 2.0. I have told him to get a gen2 rx8 and a pro 4 HD but he seems to think the regular pro4 is better for some reason. Is his correct?

Also- what is the minimum torque the servo should have?

Thanks

I run a Savox 1258 and it's more than fast enough and strong enough. I don't think you would want to go much lower than this in the torque department.
http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SC1258...avsc1258tg.htm
The standard Pro4's have the nice advantage of quite a bit lighter weight. The HD will have more torque. I can't really imagine needing any more power than I have right now with my Pro4 4000kV but that's me. This class seems to be a bit over powered a lot of the time anyway. As they say many times....slower is faster.

The 2.0 is light enough that the regular pro4 hauls it around just fine.
