Thanks KD, Whats lunksford pins and rods? Never heard of them.
GO-TO I would like to hear what you have. But enjoy your dinner. Thanks guys
I have yet to break an A-arm OR turnbuckle making constant jumps and wrecks like this.
I hear the RPM A-arms are good to buy, and not that bad on price...I'd stick with stock 'cause they aren't easy to break and are cheap to replace.
For my truck I started off with what I'd call required upgrades. Receiver hump pack, steering servo, and throttle/brake linkage upgrade. From there I put 7000wt oil in the alloy cup 4-gear shimmed diff's.
From there I installed an Axial .28 with polished HPI pipe. Stainless clutch shoes and stiffer springs are a must at this point...I used 1.0mm springs and Nova R/C clutch shoes with the weighted set screw installed to tame engagement. I have the dual-stainless brakes and haven't had problem yet so I'm not spending money there just yet. I also got the HPI 308 hump pack battery level meter. Not required but great to have!
I wasn't happy with the exposed bottom and top-heavy truck so I went with the FLM LCG but non-extended TVP's and center skid plate. I also went with Raven triple-rate springs and removed all spacers. It's VERY hard to roll the truck over and still has plenty of clearance to withstand jumps as seen above (about 15ft up).
My next step is likely an LST2 shock upgrade. That'll likely be my last upgrade on the truck aside from having the Axial .28 done by AB Mods.
I think that's all at this point.
