Another hope is that Vaterra or aftermarket will release different ratio rockers that alter the ratio (force) that is placed on the front shocks while the front compresses. This is a very useful tuning option on the 10th Revo.

That's a understatement! Hell mine were leaking right out of the box, oil on all four shock shaft and the fronts were only half full. Then i put heavier springs on mine to find out that the stock plastic spring preload collars are not up to the task a they just slip up under any load. Glad I'm switching out all four shock once they get delivered.

The picture of the rockers on Horizon show 4 rockers in that part #. So it looks like they have 2 ratios. Anyone check of 1/16 revo rockers fit?

Those 4 pieces make a complete pair of factory rockers. Each rocker arm is actually two pieces that fit together, sandwiching the rod ends... Commonly referred to as "double shear".

Revo rockers are a bit bigger. Not the best pic, but I just grabbed it off the shelf. Ill break it down further and post some side y sides.

what bar you guys using for crawling? I just put in the lightest bar tonight to see how I like it; the middle was too much for crawling/trail truck. And I found it made the truck flip more on grass. The front end of this rig is very responsive; hard to keep it from doing donuts on payment with a little sand lol

I found medium too much and rear wouldn't articulate as much.


I don't find that mine handles, any better either, if anything it seems to flip more now and, I've been messing with front spring to adjust. High speed turns on grass always result in rollovers

It depends on your use of the TH. When I was running it at high speed, the hard ones were awesome. The soft ones were decent in the rocks, but under fast acceleration it would spin out. I'm running a brushless by the way.

The front end just grabs like crazy. Even on payment with a little sand it ls all too easy to spin out or do donuts all day long.

I find if I am wanting to go fast I dial down the steering throw and its better, but then dial it back up when trail running or on rocks
