And thanks BMain for rubbing it in...the kicker is, it was almost 60 sunday(3 days ago) and NOW it was like 18 for the high today, maybe a bit warmer but still not nice enough for me to get this biznitch out
Many thanks!!
I wonder if QTEQ is making one for the rx8's

Hey send me your truck so I can 'admire' it here, plenty of sun year-round

thats what i did and i was very happy withthe results..i was running on damp med bite traction clay with ions..only changes i made were things i did on the 1.0 i ran 5/7/3 in the diffs and set the droop(schock length) at 101 in the rear and 86.5 up front..same layout i ran 3 weeks ago with old truck and last night i was faster on the first pack....

as far as an indoor clay setup i sometimes go 773 in the diffs depending on how tight the turns are..outdoor i always run 773...do the same thing on my 8th scale nitro and e buggies as well

Tekno seems to corner better seems steering radius a little better. I have turned my steering Down in my truck...

I had old Losi not new 2.0. do not think this was changed with 2.0 was it?

What's the verdict on this truck? Does it drive like the old losi? Any issues with leaky diffs, bent chassis, worn out drives?

You won't find much wrong with this truck if anything at all .Diffs are awesome. Chassis layout is sweet allows for better handling jumping and rotation. The out drives will last longer then the 1.0 because if the different alignment if the drivetrain.Youll still have your normal wear and tear. I've tried all the 4x4s besides the techno. This truck is Definately top if the line whether its for bashing or racing. For the amount of abuse this truck can take you can't even compare.

The 2.0 has almost exact layout of the MIP chasis. Looks like it will perform/handle very well. This truck should be right up there with MIP, Tekno and Team Durango. Will be interesting to see how things develop once 2.0 drivers have more track time.

I have put several packs through this truck and really like it so far. I haven't had any leaking diffs or bent a chassis yet. The outdrives are holding up just fine.

As for driving it, it handles great. The balance is good, steering is great. It has a familiar feeling to the 1.0 TLR has taken all the upgrades and weight reduction tips learned from the 1.0 and put them into this package with some tweaks along the way. I am already faster with this truck over my upgraded 1.0

The amount of SCT410 drivers around here is amusing and the biggest compliment to the SCTE 2.0! Thanks for your interest guys!

Drives even better!

New diff housings and gaskets so no leaking (my 1.0 never leaked).

TLR flex tuned chassis standard so no bending.

HD outdrives standard on the 2.0, so they should last a season easily.

TLR really fixed all issues there have been for some of the owners of the SCTE ARR!

You are welcome to switch to the SCTE 2.0 and enjoy it as much as we do!
On the other hand, between the TLR and the other truck does not seem to be a lot of difference performance wise. It is and has always been the driver which makes the difference!

The truck hasn't been out long enough and in enough hands to get a good sampling yet. IMO - it's DIALED!!!

Really feels like a whole lot more nimble truck vs the 1.0. Turns on a dime on power or off - doesn't push at all and you dot need to hammer it to rotate around the corners. Very nimble.
