If you are looking for that next step with your S10SC and want to get your lap times down, then I would highly recommend that you get the CRP-STAGE 1 race kit... now in stock
This kit was the single best thing I did to my SCT.

I got my truck out for a shakedown run after getting it ready to go and FINALLY getting a dry weekend/track. Was going great, doing some fun time with a buddy on his track and liked the way it jumped and was then doing some circle tracking with him. Well the stock tires and a 4700Kv motor, a quick blip of full throttle and spinning out into wall hard in the corner and now the whole frontend sits about 1/4 inch to the right of the chasis,,lol,, my fault not in any way trucks fault, it really was a hard hit, right where the wall has a post for support so no give in the wall either. so now time for the aluminum upgrade parts I got from Thumb rc and will put on the proline tires also for a bit more grip. I just almost feel guilty running something with upgraded parts without first running the stock parts, want to get my money out of the stock parts a bit first,,lol.
Now hope weather holds out to get it back together so i can run it some more.

I know this probably taboo, but does anyone know if any other brands ballstuds work on these trucks as i broke one and the "local" hobby shop is 45 mins away one way, so i would like to know if ballstuds are prettymuch standard or do they come in many different sizes.

Okay,,next question,
Do you still use the front bearing spacers when you upgrade to the aluminum steering blocks, because when i put them in with the bearings in the aluminum piece it pushes the bearings out a little past the bearing surface, but when i take the spacer/bushing out the bearings sit flush with the aluminum steering block surface. Hope that all makes since, kind of hard to describe. So just wondering how everyone else is running them.

Just like any car you can run whatever ball studs and ball cups you want. You just have to use the appropriate ball cups to fit what ever studs you want to use.

Yes you need to use the crush spacers as they keep the bearings from binding. But with all plastic parts some filing may be necessary to get the fitment you are after. I would file the spacer or flat sand it till your bearings are flush.

Correct spacer,, but by eyeballing it so far, it has the bearing sticking out by the thickness of the spacer, just going to see how it all goes back together with some tension on it or something

was wondering ... 2 questions?? is there any one working on a aluminum or carbon chassis for this SC?? also does the aluminum steering plate provide better steering than the plastic one? .. I find that the plastic one creates a situation where the ball cups runs into another part of the car limiting steering.
