Anyone have a good starting setup for a black dirt, hard packed bumpy, low traction/slick track with very small jumps but a few sharp 180's

Casper's suggestion is a good one. Here are some words about it to give you an idea.

I wouldn't try this myself. There is a reason almost every esc are designed with caps from the factory. I've had a bad cap before and the ESC was really hot.

I tried the mid motor last night and I have the short pack starting set up on it and I don't have any extra alum parts that didn't come in the kit and it worked great with great surprise to me .. I'm glad I tried it and I'm looking forward to more track and tuning with it ,thnx TLR drivers for the hard work you put in on set ups .

Any chance we can get a peek at Dakotah's mid motor setup? I noticed he ran saddles and only the 7g weight, which seems to be much different than the newest MM setups posted!

I'm having issues with the rear hubs. I broke two plastic ones the first week I had the kit completed using the center D hole. I bought the stronger aluminum ones and now instead of the hubs breaking, the ball studs both steel and titanium broke off in the holes making the $30 aluminum hubs worthless.

Many of the breaks are happening on normal landings on doubles at my local track. Possible design issue or is there a fix for this problem?

Normal landings and breaking? Not sure I can concur that. I hit pretty good sometimes and have yet to break a hub or an arm or...... heck only a spindal once on the 22 2.0.

You drive at the same track as Wildcat?

It sounds like something is binding up when you land. Hold the car and compress the rear shocks all the way. Make sure something isn't hitting.

awe, thats not funny, lol. Mine was because of the C hole. My daughter has used the A or D hole for months. She gangs the crap out of the pipes and has never broken a hub. IMO, the only issue I see is in the C hole. What that other guy is experiencing is poor driving. Now way to do that much damage otherwise.

check this link out bud.. this should help you out a little.

http://images.amainhobbies.com/image...Table_v1_0.pdf

I run these on my xb4 '14 and xb4 2wd.. they are great pistons, but to be quite honest the stock pistons on the 22 2.0 are just as awsome.. I really like the 2.0 suspension, I would just play with oils and springs before you change pistons.. The pros are running the stock pistons and they seem to be working really well so like the saying goes if its not broke dont fix it.. Sticking with the stock pistons is your best bet, IMO..

Hope that helps

Finally decided to go with saddles. Just ordered 2 from hobbyking. They're shipping from Hong Kong so now begins the terribly long wait. Plus they won't be back to work until Tuesday

After running my rear motor 22 2.0 on a sugared track and noticing that in the corners it is very sketchy and doesn't feel fluid I'm going to convert to mid motor. Does anybody have a starting set-up using saddle packs, the esc mounted in the stock location on top of the battery brace and with no extra parts like the Rocket RC brass hinge pin blocks?
