I was working on my son's car these weekend and noticed his front two axles were cracked as well.

Thanks!
Stub axle is losa3522. You will not run the washer or boot with the 3.0 axles.

thanks maddog9, that was also one of my ideas what to try next
as well I plan to reduce rear toe in to 2degr. - any thought on this?

as well one of things I find out that this buggy fly`s much higher and longer than my previous one...ok it lands much, much better, but sometimes I do not need such a high or long jump- what setup changes can reduce jump height?
Only ride height or also other tips?

This worked well for me at our spring shootout. I meant dusty, not wet on the setup sheet

Less antisquat will make it not jump as high.

Ok, but how it will affect steering? I think it will allow to squat car more, so it will make to push front of car even more, right?

It might push more as it will give the rear more traction while on throttle.

If you want more on power steering i would go 0-0 pills for kick up or (starting most frontal) even 1 down and 1 up for the kick up, so the least amount of kick up. Rear hubs all the way back. Thicker front sway bar, thicker rear sway bar. You can try thicker front diff oil, thicker center diff oil. all things according to the TLR tuning guide that will give more on power steering.

Last and most important thing double check your servo savor is tight. If it is loose your overall steering will be terrible.

I haven't been able to find any other options. I contacted JConcepts, as it looks like Maifield was running one of theirs on his buggy and they said they were working on something but were still 4-6 weeks out from market.

I wish there were more options, I like running different shells and changing up looks.

It doesn't hurt to try some of things to get idea of what it does on your track surface.
