    I forgot to mention I moved the shock back to the stock position with the sway bars on the front and rear. I'm happy with it for now, it's not a race buggy so it will all tend to rollover if I don't...

    My temps were taken on an indoor track, around 68F. I was going to try a bigger pinion (14t), but it seems like the stock 11t is the limit for running for more time than a couple of speed runs
