I run 39 front 38 rear for ride height. As far as droop, ill measure in the morning and get back to you. I do run the buggy rear shocks in the front to get more droop.
the truggy is great and I would like to see more group chats. It would be nice to get more input.

For droop I run 114 front / 128 rear, kit shocks with the shock ends unscrewed 2 turns, inside holes on arms, middle on shock tower
as far as ride height I run driveshafts level

too much front droop takes away too much steering

try the 12* deg aluminum caster blocks, A215 Sv steering plate and +2 deg rear hexís

also a few of us are grinding the steering knuckles for a bit more steering throw to to help with tight low speed corners

EJF would you mind posting a picture of what area to grind off on the steering knuckle?

Lutz winning SIC race with the 215T is a big deal. First...he won. Second...he beat Tebo. Third...Tebo had a Tekno truggy which is a good whip. So this says a lot about our driver and our truck. Iím racing at January Jam this weekend at Flowood RC. Lutz will be there and I look forward to picking his brain on the truck.

I picked up a used a8t... and was curious what would have to be changed to swap over my truck to the new a215t chassis. Meaning will everything bolt on to it from the a8t? I know some things would have to change with the chassis like guards, servo tray and body... but any other must changes? Would like to slowly change over while keeping the truck drivable if possible...Thank in advance for any insight

*** I'm aware of all the differences between the 2 trucks as someone listed it here a few pages back. But I would think some of those changes will not have to be changed if everything from the a8t truck lines up and bolts in. Thank

Hey there, the front clip will bolt on as is. Iíd swap the A and B plates to the 215t for convenience but original should go on to the chassis. When when swapping to the new hinge plates youíll need the new inserts and the longer black coated hinge pins. The rear clip will need the newer rear gearbox with the a215t C and D plates as the C plate locks onto the chassis differently and the D plate accommodates for the kick up in the tail of it. The center diff will need the a215t outdrives with the double bearing setup then your center shafts should work. If you swap arms ever, youíll need to go to the a215t outdrives and second bearing to accommodate the added length. Again the shaft remains usable still. Towers arenít that different. The steering crank system would be a nice upgrade.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need part numbers.

Thanks alot, you pretty much confirmed what i was seeing based on part numbers from the original A8T and the new A215T. The truck i have has the steering bellcrank from the A215T so thats one less thing to change. I think i'm going to give this a run bc the chassis on the A8T is trashed and if the balance is that much better with the new chassis i might as well start the hybrid swap over. Appreciate the help

1 more question, can you confirm all parts from the buggy A215 will swap to the A215T as long as it dosent have a "T" at the end of the part number. Im pretty sure thats the case but since you seem to have the knowledge of the truck i figured i would ask for confirmation. Thanks again

not all parts are but some. Even the ones without the t I believe. I own both. I can switch alot of parts back and forth but definitely not all
