I had a dinky kit on my Xj and it was very soft in the rear, I was going to try a sway kit but went back to 4 link instead... banana had a dinky kit tuned with a sway kit.. He may have some good feedback. .

I'm going to have read up 1/16 cantilever slash setups. I heard getting longer and shorter rocker arms and different springs will effect the setup.

Rear does feel touch soft. I need to get softer front springs. Still have stock dual rate scx10 springs

I like the look of the cantilevers on the outside a lot. What oil are you running in them? I had the setup on my J2 Skeleton, and had to run 80-100 weight to slow the rear end down enough, due to tiny shock size.

Got my chassis rails installed.



Excuse the messy work bench, I really need to spend a full day cleaning up.



I had to use bass inserts on my smw skid.



I made templet winch/ electronics plate. Need to decide what material to use for the final product. I also got a cbe Titan 300oz winch.

I took my truck to AZ scale comp. I didn't do well at all. My springs were to soft and last course for me I ended up breaking a pin for the portal gear. I also made a last minute decision to run ottsix Tko housings.

After I got back from scale nats. I fixed the pin that broke in 3 pieces. I rebuilt my front shocks with 30wt oil and green slime. The rear also got rebuilt with green slime and 80wt oil.
