Depends on your track. Long is better for outdoor, loose, sweeping turns. Short is best indoor, tight tracks. Basically long is smoother steering and short is more aggressive steering.

Check out the TLR Tuning Tips, page 4 under Ackerman.
http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...000#prodSetups

The short link is quicker steering and the long link is easier to drive for most people as it smooths out the turn by slowing it down. I have tried both and use the long link 90% of the time when using the TLR aluminum carriers up front. Short link was useful 50% of the time without TLR carriers up front. Comes down to how you drive and what you like.

Just ordered the two link combo and the recommended diff washers. Truck is supposed to arrive Tuesday. I haven't been this excited about a project in a long time :-)

Thumbs up

Im in the same boat Lou, I just ordered all of those too! Cant wait for them to come in later this week. I am in the process of converting my 1.0 to 2.0, and it was a easy swap. Waiting on more 10awg wire to come in though, didn't realize the esc would be so far from the motor! My ebay list looks pretty intense from buying like 12+ things the past 2 weeks.. haha. Super excited to hit the track once i get everything put together! Unfortunately my 22 shock conversion had a bad shock body, so waiting for a new one to get here.

Hmm... What is the deal with the 22 conversion? What does that do for you?

I dont use one. All I use is a ride height gauge and camber gauge. For front end toe adjustments, I just eyeball it.

Default Lots of ?'s

Wheels and tires... I understand the kit does not come with tires but does come with two full sets of wheels? Can anyone confirm this please?
I see pro-line offers pre-mounted wheel and tire sets. I think I read there is an adapter needed for use on the SCTE? If so can someone post a link to said adapter?

Can anyone tell me if there are any oils included in the kit? I.E. Shock oil or diff oil...

I'm supposed to be getting my kit tomorrow and am hoping to be on the track this weekend...

Thanks in advance!

Lou

Lou, from what I've read the 22 conversion lowers the center of gravity with the new shock Tower so its not as top heavy, adds more tuning options, and overall just handles better. My bigger Bore shocks were leaking all over the place, so I went ahead and got the 22 conversion and so far I love how they feel. They also weigh less which helps.

Right on, that clears that up. I'll prolly look into that upgrade in a few months.

Yes the kit comes with 2 sets of wheels and NO TIRES. I personally do not like Proline wheels. I feel they dont hold up very well. I had a set of the F11's crack on me after a 2 day race weekend on a carpet track. I would look into DE Racing wheels. Good quality products.

The kit does come with all the oils you need to build the truck. 5000 and 3000 diff oils and 27.5wt shock oil.

Sweet action!

What is the wheel size? 2.0 or 2.2? 12mm hex right?

Thanks again. I feel like I'm being a PITA with all the little questions but I just cant seem to find the specifics I'm looking for.

Short course wheels and tires have their own size which are 2.2/3.0. Offset wise the SCTE uses a "0" offset and are standard 12mm hexes.
