    Great thread. :)

    I have two things I wanna bring up.

    First: When switching over to a 4-Link setup on an SCX10, The upper links should be the same length as the lower links, is this correct?

    Second: Ring and Pinion options.

    43/13 - AX30402
    38/13 - AX30395 <-- Upgraded Set w/Stock Tooth Count
    36/14 - AX30401

    Would it be possible to get some examples of Ring and Pinion Combinations that would "Reduce Torque Twist" or "Overdrive the Front for Climbing"?

    I have never tried to change the gearing to make it different from front to rear, but I would think it is as bad to do in 1:10 scale as it is in a 1:1.

    Ok, so going higher or lower is cool but just do it on the front and rear. That was my instinct but the axial website is kinda confusing.

    Yeah I would say that running different gearing from front to rear would put excess strain on the Slipper clutch.

    Over driving the front axle is a common upgrade! Less wheel slip in the rear compared to the front and it could "pull" you up an obsticle. One of my winter upgrades I'm planning on doing.

    That's why I asked because the Axial website "implies" you can mix ratios but as usual the specifics are vague.

    And your saying to use the lower gears in the front to climb?

    I have some brain damage issues that cause memory issues and so I can understand how adding or subtracting teeth can affect torque & speed but when I go to think about combining the different ring and pinion combos my swiss cheese brain craps out! LOL

    How hard is it to shorten the Honcho wheelbase? Is it a 2 nut job, or do you need to weld the chassis?

    I am about to get the scx10 but I need to know of a good battery for it. I want something that will last with good power. If anyone could link me to a couple good choices that would be great!

    I would go with at least 4000mAh nimh.
    If you don't want to change the plug find something with a Tamiya style connector.
    You can run 2S Lipo safely, but I would recommend a plug change to Deans, Traxxas, Losi, ect. something better suited for lipo.
    I also like hard case batteries just because they are tougher.
    Ideally the highest mAh you can find.
    Other than that the choice is yours.

    I have several different brands from cheapest out there to most expensive and they all work well.

    Do mean an adapter to go from on plug style to the other?
    I never use them.

    Are you leaning towards lipo or nimh?

    This is the battery I use the most-Hard Case LiPo Battery Pack, EcoPower Electron 2S Li-Poly 30C Battery Pack [ECP-LPH-5000-2S30] - A Main Hobbies

    Here is a nimh with a Tamiya plug -Venom 6-Cell 7.2V 5000mAh NiMH Stick Universal System

    Another Nimh with Tamiya plug-https://www.ckrccrawlers.com/duratrax-onyx-6cell-72v-5000mah-nimh-stick-standard-p-3449.html

    You may need to add the New Jeep to the initial overview. I'm not sure if it's different from the Dingo or Honcho in specs.
