  • Tkr 5086 - Allen screw lock collar @ rear stabilizer

    Anyone else strip these out? Alternative upgrade Aluminum collars? Something tells me this is going to be a common accurance.

    I've never seen them stripped out. The composite collar will deform into an oval before it would strip out. That being said, somebody did find some metal parts from another company. I think they were steel. I'll try to find the info.

  • Suggestions for a body that sits lower? Every body I've tried sits too high because of the tall shock towers.
  • 4 Tekno SCT 410.3 running a bumpy Astro track in the UK
    I posted my pickup truck shell a few pages back. This is where I race every other Sunday. It is more a 1/10th buggy track but the trucks handle the bumps pretty well so are competitive. Here is the first heat, I was doing OK but eventually lost the lead to the UK national SCT champion and never did beat him that day.

    Enjoy

    The Jcon HF2 sits low and handles great. I had to move a slight amount of
    Material for the rear shock caps. It lines up with a air escape vent so wasn't a big deal.

    I have a question regarding the rebound of the shocks. On the front pair I get one with zero, but the other, following the same procedure I get 60-70% travel. The same exact thing happens with the rear pair.
    If I open the cap on the shock with zero rebound the bladder remains inside the cap, but with the other it is sealed to the shock itself (not in the cap)I run standard vented. Any advise on this?? Its so frustrating not being able to get them more or less the same.
    Bladders tend to be a headache compared to emulsion.
    Have you considered trying it? Many pro's run emulsion on their 410's, so it might benefit you try it.
    Otherwise I don't understand what the deal could be if you are building everything exactly the same
  • Make sure the vent hole isn't clogged on your cap. I use a wire sized drill bit to keep them clean. I can't remember which. Maybe a 58....

    A few guys are running the tlr 22sct 2.0 body and it sits pretty low. I'm going to try one.

    yep, those are the ones but the aluminums , If you dont change the stabilizer to often you probably wouldnt have an issue & then the plastics are good enough.

    I might try it if I don't get the vented right. I just need to order new caps first.
    How accurate does the rebound need to be matched? +-10% , 20%??
    I have used a couple of losi bottles allready, trying to figure out why the other one is rebounding more. It seems like it almost rebounds the same amount, even if I try to compress the piston, and bleed out a more oil...

    I do put the bladder inside the cap when installing. The piston is almost fully compressed when I put the cap on. (could it be that the piston are too compressed and touching the bladder when installing the cap?letting in air etc)

    Good point! I used a 2mm drillbit, manually rotating it , to make sure nothing was blocking the vent hole. But it did not fix the problem.
  • When I do a vented bladder build, I fill the shock with oil, hold the bladder gently over the top of the shock, and push the shock shaft all the way up to the rebound that I want. If you want zero rebound you need to do this with the spring seat on otherwise the piston will drive up too far. Once you are at the rebound position you want, pull the shock shaft back down just a little bit to vacuum the bladder down onto the top of the shock and hold it there. Thread the cap on. Not sure if that is the perfect way to do it but that is what I have been doing.

    Thank you sir! That is a very good explaination, i'm going to test this when I get back home.
  • On the shock rebound issue, I run emulsion myself so not speaking from experience but I have seen from time to time that air will enter the shock through the o-rings at the bottom of the shock body in the cartridge. Maybe just check that everything is seated properly in the ones that are giving you a problem and the o-rings are not torn. Sometimes they can get a tare from the thread on the shaft during installation. Good luck figuring it out and let us know what you find.
