RCoverload - ECX Torment 2WD SCT - Body Venting Modification & Suspention Upgrades



I recently have performed a few minor modifications to this truck to help improve this almost impossible... indestructible truck become something even better.

To start off I was constantly running into issues with this trucks body and having to try and deal with the parachuting effect. so after doing a little bit of research and trying out a fee different areas to cut some wholes. I think I may have solved the problem. I went a head and cut some vent wholes up front over the tires, since I discovered that's were most of the air seems to grab the body underneath.

After that I also cut out a few wholes in the back to help with better air flow threw out the truck.
Next I went a head and installed some of Pro-Line Racings Pro-Spec springs (Yellow) into all of my shocks to help improve the smoothness of the overall suspensions. considering the dual rate spring that were on the power stroke shocks were a bit too stiff for the lightweight truck.

The last thing I did to this truck was install some new ECX Hex nuts for the wheels. Those seemed to be the only things to actually wear out on this truck so far!
