    My track is hard pack clay with dusty sections. The holeshots really work on the front. Keep in mind thats my local track, your surface is probably different thus needing a different configuration.

    Whats the down side of having a bit wider track in the rear? I would think it would add a bit of stability...but it's been awhile... think Tamiya hotshot (1986) since I've done this! :o

    How do the STRC rear carriers with 1 degree toe in not give any rear toe unless the factory Rustler is set up with 1 degree positive? My monster gauge tells me it's zero.
