Ok raced it!
And it performed really well! I dropped a spring rate in front and it really helped. The car is still pushing compared to my other but it still feels great. Very planted and easy to put it right where I wanted it. I finished 4 right behind the 3 fast guys that are always on top. Today was one of my best days in a while.

I'd suggest using TLR or Losi shock oil for your kit builds, since the TLR and Losi oils are tested and certified accurate, while the kit oils are not. The reason for this is that the TLR and Losi oils are made in the US, while the cars are not.

Frank Root has commented a couple times that it's not needed or wanted with I believe the front end changes. I can't find the proper explanation right now thou.

I think Frank said that the same effect can be had with the shimming of the axle in the rear hub.

quick question for Frank or anyone else that gets this...

I'm running my 2.0 w shorty packs and ran into an issue yesterday. I believe I have the battery tray set up in shorty position. There are no other holes available to move it any further back towards the tranny. Frank mentions using only 1 spacer pad with this set up and it appears he has this behind the battery. Hence his pack is all the way forward in the setup. I'm trying to run my pack all the way back and need 2 pads to keep it secure. One needs to go in horizontal and one vertical. Makes me think I don't have the battery tray set up properly.

I also found with the pack back and the spacers in front, battery cover doesn't line up with my bullet holes on my battery. To make it work, I would need to dremel out some of the holder, which I really dont want to do. Again, I'm thinking I have something set up wrong, but can't seem to figure it out. Any ideas?

There are only 2 positions for the battery stop, closer to the rear for the shorty packs and closer to the front for standard packs. I just need to determine what packs to run (shorty)!

I was reading on another forum, and someone posted that the 2.0 chassis has an additional 1mm of step-up compared to the 1.0
Can Frank or someone attest to this, or is just another rumor?

Hi guys, thinking about buying my first 2wd buggy for indoor. I have only ever raced 4wd SC and ebuggy outdoor so this is all new to me but my indoor track is carpet and want to go mid motor config, does this mean I have to buy new shorty pack batteries or will my standard 2s lipos for SC still work?

For mid motor you would have to run shorty's or saddle packs I believe. If I am wrong, someone please correct me.

Thats what I thought, which means something else is wrong here. mine is in the shorty position and needs 2 spacers to hold the pack. 1 vertical and 1 horizontal. Not to mention the issue I have with the battery holder not lining up w my bullet holes in battery.

Is the 2.0 not meant to run the shorty all the way back?

Ok great, what kv or T motors do people run in 2wd buggy? I have a 9.5t viper sitting around, is that race worthy or do i need 8.5 or 7.5?

Standard batteries still work fine.

In 2wd buggy, people like to be able to move the battery weight around depending on the track/traction. Unlike 4wd SC and Ebuggy. these 2wd cars can get pretty loose at times. Probably won't have to worry about that too much on carpet though.

People also use shorty packs to keep the weight down when running 17.5 class.

That is great news, just bought a bunch of SMCs and didnt want to have to buy all new for indoor to run midmotor. I say midmotor because from reading it sounds as though mid is the best for carpet?

Sounds like I need a 17.5t motor for this class? I am going to get the 22 SC too, I like the ability to share spares, I run the Tekno SC and EB in the same way, love it.
