I see not much is going on with the Cutback thread. I can't figure it out.

Anyone with updates?

I got one for Christmas! I don't have a lot to compare it to, because my last RC was a JRX-T! Seems pretty awesome so far.... I have already cracked the body(in the back) but otherwise it seems to be running well. I am going to change the spur and pinion today to see if I can get a little more speed out of it. Love it so far tho.... Got it on sale for $239 minus discount codes so it was like $210ish.... Got a hitec charger and a SMC pack too...

I would love to get some good discussion going around this truck...

Changed the pinion to a 15tooth. Changed to the included 54 tooth spur. Wow! Took about 15 minutes. Huge speed increase. Crashes are extra spectacular now lol.

The "picture" is becoming clearer... Arrma has the same (I'm probably 99.9% correct saying this) 3600 motor; transmitter, and 80 amp waterproof ESC in a new XL Raider that's being released.

Yeah I missed out on the Cutback $249 + $35 off with a purchase over $199 deal Tower had up until the 28th of DEC. That's OK. I'm patient.

That actually had it for 239.99 with free hex set. With tower 9.99 super club membership ( which increases the plastic warranty to 2 years), 35 dollars off coupon and the 24 dollars from the ecashback promo they had running at the time- it came out to around 190 shipped which is a steal! I'm using the cashback to order the associated ess-one sound system which should be interesting to try in this truck.

I received mine but still have to run it The rear shocks had leaked out- any reccomendations on weights for the shock oils?

Also looking for a chassis cover so wondering if any of the outerwears fit. Any ideas? If not I may make some custom inner fenders for the front like I did with my hpi mini trophy truck.

I did the same thing and did the 9.99 Tower Hobbies club thing. Used my Ecash kickbacks to buy another body because I already trashed the one that came with it. Unfortunately the bumpers are flush with the body and do not protect it. Lots of cracks in the back...

Well I got one and after changing shock oil and tires I must say this truck can be very competitive against the big names as I was keep in up with some and faster then others it is very nose heavy so u can't jump until u can figure out how to lighten the front I am getting the cf front shock tower and front brace hopefully that will lighten it up enough but we shall see but it is a very good well built truck

some of the tips that work for the Tekno SCT410 may help you.

In general going to stiffer springs and different pistons for more pack really help.

I changed shock oil stiffened back up they make carbon fiber front brace and shock tower I'm gonna get and see of that reduces weight other then the jumping this truck is a competitor

when you run the vehicle, watch how it behaves when it hits the jump. You can even try rolling into the jump and then punching the throttle as you hit the jump to see if you are getting rear chassis slap.

This issue when seen on the Tekno can be solved by stiffer springs, usually rear but maybe a combo, pistons with more pack, and last resort position of battery which I don't think is as much of an issue on the tower hobbies cutback via the pics.

If they have pistons with smaller holes, or other pistons can fit, I would probably look there.
