What rear diff truss did you use for the link mounts on this?
RuffStuff truss, all the links/tabs/heims from Artec....Artec didn't have a "small" truss

It's getting there....my list keeps growing however...but it IS pretty capable right now :)

9s are cake, ran TNT for the first time on Sunday, zero issues....now to keep making adjustments to conquer all the 10 lines :)

I am amazed at the difference between a Sand Hollow 9 and 10. I bet you will make those 10's in no time.

10's are not an issue, for the most part...ratings are rising tho, a few trails are WELL above 10 (ie: Super Smash Brothers) The number of new ridiculous lines here is growing quickly...
