why do you guys run the pro-line shocks? I have been running the V4 13mm rear buggy shocks on mine for about a year now, Of course with my CRP race towers though.. The V4 shocks are hard coated and bad azz

Racecase is running the carbon towers. I think he runs the inside hole on the rear arms and outside on the towers.

My son runs the v4's with no problem ... And I'm inside hole on a arm 1 hole in on shock tower just in rear I have font out side and in the middle

The proline prospec shocks are a work of art. Pricey though. Even with a dealer discount they are still over $40 a set I believe. The good thing about the prolines is you can get 5 different spring rates for them and they come with about 5 sets of pistons.

The caster V4 shocks do work great as well.

I've heard the pro specs were great too. Kyosho smooth too. I'm sure they will fit being the powerstrokes do. I only run main spring on them green rear in front, blue's in rear 42.5f/37.5r 7f/10/5 diff rx8/pro4 4600 atm. Only thing I notice last east was a bit of a push in the front. Going to add some more wieght to it up their 1st see if that helps. If not maybe blue spring up front.
My caster has gone about 7 races without a break. Other than a kid killing me after a race broke spindle. Like Freddy said its a rocket! it will out accelerate anything on the track.

I can only imagine ... I have been running a pro4 4000 in my rapture and it obviously weighs much more and it went pretty fast.... was toying with the idea of putting the 4000 in the sct as soon as I get some upgraded parts on it.

My SC and Tenshock is sick. I couldn't ask for a better handling truck or more reliable motor.

What all upgrades are needed for this SCT? I'm thinking of getting one but have never saw anyone running them yet. I just started running for caster and I'm switching from durango. How does is handle compared to a desc410v2?

Finally was able to take my new truck out and run it. I have to say it was very easy to drive. The track I was running on was a tight technical track mostly for buggies, but this truck handled it well. I am going to use Race Case's oil setup as I have 50wt all the way around and just seemed too stiff to me. It was quite comical as there were about three other guys with 4wd trucks that thought they were as fast as I was because I was not trying to hack my way by them. Once I was able to get by them I would leave them behind. One of the guys even stated they were trying to keep up with my truck but it was too fast. Heading to Traction Hobbies for their race next weekend to give this truck another run. So far great truck and very durable.

Anyone have a good starting setup for a loamy, rough, outdoor track. Took my truck out using my indoor setup and I struggled to get the rear hooked up.

I'm sorry, I only have setups for indoor smooth tracks. I hope someone here might have a rough setup for you..
