Thanks to the help here I’m nearly done with my first ever build. Photo below and excuse the 💩soldering! @Nicochau I went through with it!

1. Suggestions on ride height and shock adjustments?

2. Any toe / camber suggestions? I still need to adjust mine as you can see it’s out.

3. Anything else??? Can I send it now?

Looking good!

I do a bit of toe out (like 0.5 deg) and -2deg camber all around.

Ride height is set when arms are perfectly horizontal.

Looks good man

in my experience running the battery in that position is not good.

The yoke on the center diff will rub the cables. I always have my cables facing forward. I think it is just safer.

I love TEKNO

but that is a issue I have were most of my battery’s are very close to the open driveline and yokes i had my balance port get eaten up on the first run

I saw your post on FB, did you manage to fix your battery?

You can also run those parts that people 3D print to help contain the battery. I personally don’t like to pinion cover, but run the battery side as a good way to keep battery connectors out of the driveline.

also, always strap connectors to make sure nothing is shewed up.

Hey I got the same results got the battery cables chewed up. I did fix the battery. removed the shrink wrap, soldered new wires and connector adn re-shrunk wrap. Works fine but now it's always oriented as you mentioned and works fine.
