Just wondering if the alum hubs and steering knuckles from the SCRT10 fit on these?

Hey is their another body that will fit this kit? When I had my Hyper 12 mini STe I never ran the stock body (fugly as hell!) but rather I made the proline crowd pleazer for the CRT.5 fit. Looked much better. This body too is ugly. Has anyone ever got another to fit?

-Tony
about page 190 or a little earlier, some one used the Hyper 10Sc front upper shock tower and body posts on the front and rear. He fitted it with a HPI lid. Looked decent and allowed him to use rear shocks on the front.
This is kind of the way i am leaning..

i have not had any break on me and i have been throwing it around a rock pit and i hit a sewer drain last week. Also hit many pipes and endos at the track. The upper arm mount behind the shock tower is what broke. The lower alum pin mounts bent a touch too.
Honestly other than the pivot ball slop, i am not concerned over them.
I'd run it and see what happens. You may be surprised.

id go between ring gear and bearing. It is a flat hard fit where the diff case to bearing may not be..

Just replaced the stock grease with 5-5-2 and all tires to caliber M3. Also shock oil to 40 all around and remove front sway bar. Amazing performance and handling with castle 3800 4 pole and HW 120A esc. Highly recommended truggy.

I'm going to guess it's just the top of the centre diff?

I am going to start racing my 10tt on a indoor carpet track. What would be the best tires for this and where can I get them?

Thats what I figured. I may use it since I won't be mounting anything up there.

I'm thinking a Tekin 8.5 (5300kv) may be good for the motor, but I'm not sure on the ESC. I'd take reliability over performance. I know the the MMP well proven and I hear the Tekin RS is the best performer. My budget isn't huge for this also. Any tips?

-Tony
I have been running the Hobbywing Xerun 60a V2.1 with 8.5t 4000kv motor pinion to 15T. i think its plenty fast already. temperature is running 60deg C. consistent with 3 packs back to back i ran up to 67deg once. ESC temps around 42-45. have been using this setup for over 3 months now with no issues.

perhaps a XERUN SCT pro with tenshock SC401 4600 will bring it up to speed a little more with the torque. friend of mine ran it with 13T pinion for 4 packs and temps were just over the 50deg C and 37deg average. all these setups were less than 200usd for esc motor lcd program box and also with extra pinions and super capacitors.

batteries were turnigy 65c 6000mah nanotech and Gen ace 5000 mah 7.4v packs.

I'm new to electric been running nitro for years and I have a question. I am going to run a 10TT with CC SW 3800kv and 5000 2s 7.4 40c lipo. My question is do I need to upgrade my 4mm bullet connectors to the 5.5mm or even the 6.5mm bullet conectors since I will be pulling such high amps? Please help. Thanks
