    Re-Building My Thunder

    Hi Guys,
    I have been running my thunder Supermaxx quite abit lately and I just got tired of the same old lay out. So I took some pictures of the current setup before I tore it all down.










    I think I m going to move the Tank, throttle servo, and battery around. Maybe give it a bit more centered weight. Probably going to upgrade the servos too.
    I love my HDD Rollbar so that is defiantly going stay. Also will be rebuild my supershocks, and my diffs. I have pretty thick oil in the diffs now. cant remember but its either 30k in front 50k in rear or 10 and 30k. You guys recommend going with a lighter oil maybe like 10k in front and 7k in rear? I dont race, strictly just bash. Any ideas aswell as what shock oil weight works well?
    Thank goodness MM is making more Hardened PillowBalls. All 8 of these are bent. Along with a bent Ti Turnbuckle.

    Red shocks front, blue rear.
    45 wt all the way around.
    For sharp great turning 10k front, 3k rear.
    For bashing and off roading 10k front, 5k rear
    (7k makes it hard to steer the truck; get a bad push)
    -2.5 toe-in on the rear, 0 toe-in front! 0-3 camber rear.
    0-3 camber front.
    Get kyosho rod ends for the turnbuckles.
    Ofna fuel tank

    Thank you Respi, That was exactly what I was looking for. Ill try what you suggested. I also just ordered the Kyosho offset rod ends.

    I was watching some of your videos on youtube about your set up and that gave me the motivation to change mine. Even ordered the LST bumpers. Hope you dont mind me stealing your ideas.
