Default Post your tips&tricks here.

Searched and didnt see a thread like this. No major modifications, just simple tweaks to get more flex/steering/etc.. that you used on your SCX.

Remove shock bump stops. Remove lower shock link ends and install tra2742 link ends, gives you alittle more height and articulation!
Tra2742x links work well on the rest of the links except the off set ones.

Get two 3x8mm counter sunk head screws, install them inplace of the front button heads on the c hubs. Should give you a couple more mm's of steering for the knuckle that hits it.

Cut butter bowls in half, paint black, drill holes, mount to shock mounts. Then you have a set of inner fender wells.

I know I'm going to shoot myself for not knowing this but how do you get the ujoint pins into the yoke? even though they have notches its not even close to slipping in.

I have a tool that came with an older kit, shaped kind of like a two-pronged fork.

What I used to do back in the day was notch a slot into the end of an old screwdriver, then just push it in while flexing the ear out a little bit. It's a pain in the ass part of the build, for sure.

I'm assuming the fork is for holding one end of the pin while widening the end yoke.

remove the bump stops from the shocks
4-link the rear
weight the wheels
lower the battery tray by trimming the spacers (only if battey is munter in front)
alum. C-hubs and kunckles
MIP or Axial front cvd shafts for a little more steering

Soak in hot water (not boiling, just hot) for 5 mins. Slips straight over.

good tip thanks. I relized you can get a bit of it in at a time instead of all at once.

Is there a step by step / DIY for moving the battery forward? Just got my dingo and sounds like a good first mod.

i just grabbed it with a small needle nose and gave it a twist and it popped right in. but that screw driver idea sounds like a winner. just insert pin in one side of joint then push the other pin with screw driver till it snaps in hmmmm.... sounds easy.
