I am running a deans plug to connect battery. Battery is a SMC 6500. Sometimes this thing will only run 5 minuets and sometimes it will run for a 8 min race. Battery is sometimes still at 65% when it does this. Please help
Ya might try re-binding your radio and resetting endpoints.

Those towers are made for the 2.0 shocks. 3.0 are longer.

What is THE setup that everyone is using as a baseline? Also, anything not included in the kit that I should order? Different springs, pistons, necessary upgrades, etc?
Does the kit include everything to run this setup or are there any springs, pistons, mods, etc needed?

Not sure if the kit comes with extra pistons you'll need 4 of the #3s. You'll also need the option springs front and rear.

..I have seen this happen .just did not think it to be common.My guess( only) would be that a few prior hits would loosen something up and a few more hits would seal the deal. Here we have very groomed and near perfect 10/th scale tracks.no 1/8 track jumps or such.I have 3 rx8 on the bench that (should go back to tekin) so I know of the faults.
There has to be a benchmark with how much of a hit it should be able to take and keep on ticking.Perhaps the jump you speak of is over that very benchmark?.

I was wondering if the old "go to" spring setup from the 1.0 would work on this...
Hows the class at Pegasus these days?
I'm going to be heading out there in about a month, its been 2 years since I was there last and I had a great time.
