    I just used stock VXL replacement tips for mine. . . That protrac kit is a GREAT mod but it is VERY involved and can throw wrenches at you as well.

    it is awesome but i'm just havin trouble finding my sweet spot... i fixed it now just used longer rod ends.

    i blew all my shock diaphragms today on a jump my shocks are almost 6 years old.

    i'm havin the most problem with toe-in, i need a toe-in gage but its fun to tinker with it

    For future reference, use longer rods or rod arms to fit. Try some losi ten-t shocks if you're looking for an upgrade.

    No power strokes IMO. If you want Super beefy get the Ten-t if you want basher not super beefy then Big Bores.

    Camber adjustment I always just use a soda can standing next to it lol. I need to buy those RPM Camber/Toe blocks they have.

    I have the RPM camber guide and its been a great help. Negative 2 degrees was a lot less angle than I thought it was.

    Ten-T's are great shocks, have them on my rusty, and sl4sh, BUT..... They limit you to what body you can use due to clearance issues on the rear shocks due to using the standoffs. My Raptor SVT Body will not fit, all the other bodys I have fit, just the raptor SVT body is giving me issues in the rear and wont sit low enough to mount (binds with the shocks and standoffs). This is the body I really wanted to use as well, I'm sure something can be done to fix this.

    i have the slash body mounts since i the rear shock tower is for the slash. it makes the rear sit high thow.

    who makes good shock springs because the big bores i was lookin at dont come with springs?

    You should be able to find the set that has springs for a dew dollars more. But Losi makes GREAT springs. Get some of there blues in 2 and 2.5 and maybe mix it up with the stock bb progressive ones if you can find them.

    After that you will be wanting to play with oil weights. love this hobby hehehe.
