    So i havn't found any posts while looking around the internet the past couple weeks on little changes and tweaks people have made to their Talion to improve how it has been handling. so i figured i would start it off myself.

    My talion didn't come with an antenna tube so i took the time to cut a short piece that comes up just shy of the underside of my body. then i pulled the antenna back into the waterproof receiver case until i had just enough out to fit into the tube. Finally I put the tube in the mounting hole and capped it to keep it clean. This as worked like a charm for me. and hasn't come loose or been damaged after multiple batteries and rolls/flips.

    It's my Arrma DEX8Talion

    Got this Talion roller and wanted to use the DEX8T body, so I ended up having to get the front and rear towers and rear body mounts. also had to use the front upper control arm bushing carrier from the DEX8T which mounted perfectly beneath the red Arrma aluminum steering brace.

    I also notice quite a lot of slop in the upper arms. When I got the parts to convert the shock towers I ended up with some extra shim clips. So on the upper hinge pin stock it had 1 large one on the shock side and 2 small ones on the servo side. So I left the large one on and removed one of the small ones and replaced with another large "thicker" one. 95% of the slop gone and no binding or movement issues

    The DEX8T body sits quite a bit lower than the stock Arrma Talion so the body now sits down nice and snug and seems to have helped lower the CG.

    Rebuilt all the diffs used 10k in front and center and 5k in the rear. Running a Tekin RX8G2 2250KV on 15/50 gearing. and a Savox 1258TG, some slightly longer and stiffer Tekno springs, and rear mud guards

    DE Racing black dish wheels will meet up with some badlands later today.

    Not sure if I will go full on DEX8T chassis, center diff and drive shafts. but I may end up installing the adjustable diff/hinge plates. Will have to see what happens when something breaks.

    Will post more pics once the wheels and body are finished. IMG_1033.JPG IMG_1034.JPG IMG_1035.JPG IMG_1037.JPG

    With my nitro truggy
    I always end up slaping bottoming out the back even with stronger oil shocks and spring
    I used nitro gas tubing on the shocks shaft
    Now when it jumps it will not bottom out
    That rubber tubing will prevents it
    And those shocks still work fine

    This thread was on the Kraton forum, but IMHO, this same mod is needed for the Talion - Especially if you upgrade the stock servo to one with a proper amount of power and speed.

    DIY Servo Mount

    I am amazed at the difference... I honestly didn't think it would be as noticeable while driving, but you can really feel the extra precision.

    Bottoming out for a Truggy is by design. If it doesn't bottom out and slap then all of the force of the landing is taken by the suspension. It might prevent a few scratches on the bottom of the chassis but I suspect you will have more bent shock shafts, broken shock ends, etc as a trade off. You want the suspension to soften the landing but the slap is supposed to prevent the suspension from taking too much. Skid plates can protect the chassis from the scratches.

    By using as much fuel tube as you have on the shocks you are limiting their travel and effectiveness. What exactly was your reasoning for wanting to prevent bottoming out entirely?

    What vehicle is that? It looks like it has aluminum arms so I doubt it's Arrma.
