While I've only been out a couple times, the first round I had the nose dive issue but learned to keep up on the throttle a bit when airborne and it fixed it pretty well...
Dare I say you might have too much throttle goin on?

Love to hear your thoughts and setup with the VRP's. I've been debating them for a while now for not just this, but ebuggy too.

Default Carpet setup for sct 410.3

I have been looking everywhere for a good setup sheet for carpet. I can't seem to find one, does anyone have one, or know where I can find one? Our local track in a medium-large sized indoor carpet track, and my setup is decent, but I know I can get more out of it. Just looking to see what other people are using. Thanks.

Pretty much just your outdoor setup, with higher shock oils, lower ride height, and lower rear diff. IIRC, I was 650/550 and 7-5-3. Also stiffer sway bars.

A guy I race with has his Tekno on fire last season indoor carpet, small track using slick tires since we are not allowed to use carpet pin tires. Pm'd you his userid tell him Cain referred you.


For the Tekno's, what is the final thoughts on the 17mm conversion from M2C?

I've been wondering what the difference in ride quality is between the stock 12mm and 17mm ... the truck I bought already had 17mm on it so it's all I know.. not sure I want to spent the $$ on a set of 12mm rims & tires to find out..

Anyone run both setups and have some insight?...

I think 17mm hex's are the way to go. I think they have a much better joint between the wheel and hex. More surface area, stronger wheels (both in the wheel design and the hex area). I have the M2C conversion but and not a big fan. It works really well, but the alloy nuts used to attach the hex to the axle work loose easily even with blue loctite. They are very unique so you either have to have your own spares or your done for the day.
I wend ahead and did the Traxxas conversion method. Seems much stronger, kiss bent/broken axles goodbye. I haven't had the chance to actually use it yet, I have too many 12mm wheels/tires to use up first. I did use the M2C system and really liked it but for the issue listed above. Once my 12mm wheels are used up, I doubt I will go back.
my driving skills aren't good, but I felt that the stiffer wheels made the truck work better. It could have been in my head wanting to feel a difference.

DE 17mm SC8?

17mm do work well for sure as on my heavier desc10 its money. I wonder if M2C if contacted would sell the inner nuts separate?

So other than the inner hold-on nuts any other complaints?

Those DE wheels you linked are the ones I have heard, and the same I use.

Ok cool, I'm ordering the tekno 17mm conversion for the ebsl, and wanted to make sure those were the right wheels.

I'm getting 2 huge tubs of 1/8 buggy wheels and tires this weekend that I'll use on the sct for practice and just messing around.

yeah the DE racing wheels are very good. I have been happy with them.

So what seems to be the must have items these days on the SCT410.3s?

Do you guys go with different shock towers for durability (Tekno machined, M2C, etc)?
