    Go over your car and see how different you are compared to it. This setup works amazingly well for me and everyone of my friends who has tried it.

    Also keep in mind that the team setups use PT Racing Oils, not AE or TLR. They are significantly thinner. close to 2k thinner on diff fluids. So 7-7-5 PT is closer to 5-5-3 AE.
    Are the pistons with this set up tapered with flat side up?
  • I posted this on the Tekin thread but didn't get much help , I'm using the Rx 8 gen 2 combo in my EB 48.3. Today at the track everything seemed to work as intended when the car was on it wheels goin around the track. But when I flipped it over and I had to walk out there to flip it over, I noticed a few times the wheels would start to turn on there own. The last time it happened it was like someone gave it a serious throttle punch and it wouldn't stop until I used the radio to stop the wheels. ive used the buggy for about 7 other times with no problem. Spektrum receiver and radio with glitch buster. Radio calibration was done, push control is off.
    Any thoughts ?

    Not intentionally bashing on them, but this would be the first thing I looked into.....just saying. I had nothing but trouble out of the Spektrum I used for a while, and have seen too many others with similar stories.

    kit....4x1.8

    flat up, taper down
  • Quote: flat up, taper down
    Are you sure of that? Kit instructions are taper up and I haven't heard of many people running the other way.

    This is how I am running mine..
  • Anyone cutting out the vent holes on top of the body? I am about to paint mine . Looks like its gonna be a tight fit as low as the body fits...
  • I know no one running taper up personally. I've never even tried it

    *edit* as I said, I can admit when I'm wrong!

    Talked to Joe and he runs Taper up /_\ in all conditions unless it's very high bite or really smooth.
  • Taper down for quicker rebound...That's the way I run all of mine.
  • diff oils
    Currently running 7,7,5 southern nats. If I'm looking to lock down the rear a bit off power, and I mean just a touch. Would going up in the center and the rear help or hurt?
    I realize it might create a whip effect or drift on heavy throttle, but I'm developing a controlled finger pretty quickly. I like the way the front feels lots of off power steering and a tad of mid push is making it really easy to drive so I wasn't planning on changes there. Any ideas

    Just spoke to Joe and he runs Taper UP unless the track is super smooth.

    When you say taper up you mean the piston looking like this? /---\ Taper pointed toward the top of the shock.
