ILDVR....
I am running 50 up front no sway.. and same pistons.. truck feels good slight push in the middle but crisp into and out of the corner...
Our setups were pretty close awhile ago..
only change I have made to what we spoke about then was the R diff running 2k..
and i moved my reaer shocks outward on the arm.. middle hole..
I want to get the 3t2s plat but keep forgeting around order time

Thanks, I am planning on trying 40 and 50 in my front shocks tomorrow. I also have been running 2k in my rear diffs.

I just bought a set of standard offset wheels to try. I have been running the 1/2" offset and I like how stable the truck is. I will let you know what I think of the standard.

Default Toe, Camber & Caster

Does anyone have any techniques to set up the Toe, Camber & Caster... and is there a setup station available for Truggies, unsure if the Buggy stations would work seeing that the Truggies are wider...is possible to make your own setup station...Cheers

The Pro-line CP MSR fits perfect, but they discontinued them. I still have many in stock.

caster is easy, you bolt the C-hub with what caster you want on, and your done, camber you can buy a RPM monster camber gauge, they are pretty cheap, and work well, for toe its easiest to just go by eye,

for set up stations, you can modify a buggy one to work fairly easy, you can buy a set of 17mm hexes and the side plates will bolt on, but the fit will be sloppy unless you shim the hexes every time you put them on, or you could drill the hole in the side plates out to fit the stock 23mm hexes, and then for the toe plate, you just have to cut two slots beside the existing ones to make up for the truggy being widder, but dont just make the exisiting slots widder, becuase you need the exisitng stop points because they set the zero point for the toe, you need to leave a space and then make two new slots, otherwise the degree markings on the plate are more or less useless because there is nothing stopping the plate at zero, if that makes sence, lol

Hudy also makes a Truggy toe in plate too so that would be an option, also check on ebay there is usually cheap options on there as well, or at least there used to be,

A few pics of my Matrix TR and its little brother.

I am very happy with the quality of these kits, and the build went very well.

I have the new CEN cross pins and cases in stock (MX212,MX213). I also have my hardened cross pin convertion kits in stock. The CEN kit for 3 diffs are $30 shipped, mine are $40 shipped and will work with all 3 cases (MX036, MXS39, MX212) and last much longer.

Gene,

I had read something earlier about you carrying eck tec products. However, when I sifted through the post I must have missed it. Anyways, I was wondering what your price is on the rear hinge pin plates as well as what your oppinion is on them in comparison to the cen made plates?

Thanks

Is it just me or is the cen center diff a real bear to service? Not hard to get out but difficult to put back together. Lining up all the brake pads and all. Maybe there is an easier way that I am missing? By the way, Genes conversion went in flawlessly, used the old cases, what is improved with the new cases?
