Ackerman, you need to shim the ball studs like Hodge / BK / RBlove has in their set ups. However this will require longer ball studs. And maybe 6* blocks for carpet. Mine was twitchy and this fixed it...

Yep, you'll need to open the opening a bit for the LCD's to clear...

Check out Rob Love's set up on JRXS.com it's been real good for stock and mod/19T...

I just got to try the car in a more traction friendly condition and WOW!

I was convinced that I needed the sway bars, but I after this run with a little different setup, I don't think I need them as badly as I thought.

Can't wait till the next weekend to try it out on the track again.

And I reallly like the Skoda 2 body.

Run the 4* and just slam the roll center up front (flat)...Put the 2* block on the rear with the 0* rear hubs, the 2* of rear toe is good at Bio's....

Use the new style AE studs for the TC4, the hex heads are dialed!

As for springs, Bob at Granview Hobbies has the 50LBS, but for tomorrow you'll have to run the stock ones, just stand the front shocks up a hole if you have too much steering, this will add dampning...Rob and I will be at WOH in Cinci tomorrow, Sorry!

Good luck!

KE

Default Battery Bars

What are the best battery bars for maximum chassis clearance? The ones in the Losi "Todd's Trick Tips" website look much flatter than the bars I currently have on my packsİ I am concerned about the bars touching the chassis during insertionİ Has this caused any issues for anyone else?

All my bars clear, but the trinity bars clear the rear belt by the most.
