    Actually been a good boy but pushrods for bracing ?

    cant somebody sent me a picture of how exactly you mount the pushrod for both rear and front bracing and what partnumber you use...
    been searching the forum for the post giving me the right answer but there seems to be some oppinions about P2 and P3 and swaybars (which I do not have)

    thanks ever so much :-)

    If youre talking about handling, i didnt notice anything.. I didnt notice the RCS ccage much either, and that bugger REALLY stiffens the chassie..

    Not at all, it actually improves the ability to tune the suspension to behave the way you want. You no longer have chassis flex in the equation. Of course you still have the a-arms flexing which can be significant, especially if your running rpm arms but I suppose thats better than all the traxxas arms I had to replace before I switched to rpm.

    Here's how I did my front brace. I could'nt find a really good angle but I think you can see it good enough. Used soem carbon fiber rod ca'ed into a traxxas rod end and the other end just inserts inta a 1/4 inch deep hole in the body tower. I mainly rely on the rollcage to stop flexing though, I just added the braces because ti was a easy quick mod that didn't really interfere with anything else.

    No it still is one tuff truck. That age-old theory that stiffening one pArt stresses another area really doesn't seem to apply to this mod. The pushrods still allow the chassis and mount to bend a little. It's just not going the break the rear mount anymore since it is secured at two locations instead of one.

    depends on how hard you hit whatever you hit

    This mod is more to prevent the front or rear of the chassis from flexing upwards in a bad landing from a jump and breaking the bulkheads. It doesn't make it where it can't flex, it makes where it is harder to flex it enough to break the bulks. A head on impact with an immovable object is still probably going to break stuff if your going fast enough but I don't see how the brace mod would make breakage more likely than it would be otherwise.
