    Well, thought I would post some pics of my fresh off the setup station Electric Truggy. I went to the track Saturday and ran my SC10 4x4 and my RC8.2

    The Truggy class was mixed Nitro and Electric, which in my opinon the advantage heavily favored the electrics. 10 min main, electrics have way more torque and speed for the new technical/smaller layout. So, I decided to break the E Trugg off the shelf and apply some setup similarities from my buggy. I attached my setup sheet. Tell me what you guys think on the set-up. It's a beast...:sneaky:

    I will. I have to break it down to show a lot of the Mods. I am going to work on a SC104x4 thread and RC8.2 thread also.

    Nice man ! Yea i run the Tekno V4 conversion also i run alum chassis braces front and rear since my track is pretty smooth now. Im looking at using 37/12 w in the rear shocks compared to 35w which is to light for the rear it bottoms out and rolls into the corners a bit much . And its been hot as hell here in the Northeast . Im running 40w f/silver spring/stock pistons how to do you like the bronze springs front and rear that would seem pretty stiff .

    Heres the track i race at .

    Yea that day it was hot and pretty humit/ high winds it was hard to keep the moisture in the track even if it was sitting to soak the water in it was watered three times but the wind gust would just dry it kinda of fast lol. Fun though its not real loamy actually it used to be i was watching like crazy to get rear side bite that day by changing to the lower hinge pin hole on the hubs / standing the rear shocks into the lower holes which made it worse so i went to the outside hole on the rear arms and it started to work much better. My soft City Blocks at least on the rear were slide city on that day usually they hook up great there ! So the I-Beam rear/City block front i tryed for the main race which is in the vid i posted worked the best ! I was the neon Green body RC8T on the vid ingore the couple of times i crashed lol :laugh:

    how did you setup your chassis that way, I never seen this configuration. is this custom or did you use a kit? I have the original RC8Te and I like your setup
