    Just ordered a 3 cell and mods are being installed as we speak!

    About to install the new trenchers and desperados....front and rear rmp a-arms.....aluminum shock caps..and cooling fan. Does it matter what way the tires go on the rims? There doesnt appear to be a certian way.

    Also, do I have to program my truck to work with the 3 cell or will it automatically work? Im still prolly going to mistly run a 2 cell for bashing what I had to see what this 3cell busines is all about!

    I wouldn't go higher than 11t till I see the temps. You gotta count the trenchers as 1-2 teeth gear up too, they'll stretch right out like pie cutters lol.

    11 is stock if Im not mistaken and I dont think the trenchers are and taller are they? I do have to admitt I just installed the trenchers on deseradoes and aluminum shock caps and the truck feels faster. Ohhh and also, I taped my tires so they would not balloon as bad

    We will probably want to get Mip X-Duty shafts. You will break lots of stock shafts on 3s.
