I still have to complete the rear end of the build. That is the only thing thus far that the manual should tell you to do, but doesn't. It has you complete the front diff case prior to attaching the CVD. I've built dozens of 1/8 kits, so was surprised it didn't have me do this. I made sure it was tight and mesh was good.

First Losi 4wd build and so far am really impressed. Front end suspension and steering is a bit tight, but should wear in.

I did. I took the case off and held the bearings in place. I gave it a little throttle and I watched the gear wobble back and forth slightly. I called horizon and the have hd diff cup on its way. The plastics are warped.

Well i dont own the 2.0 SCTE but ive driven one with a guy who runs one . I can only tell you how it is on carpet with the stock setup. It was pretty twichy, i noticed but i told the guy i race with to turn down the Dual rate and it was better but still to much he agreed. It was traction rolling easy so he changed the shock oil to 35w F/30R and increased the rear Camber. I tried it out it was much better seemed to turn into the corners better and jumped better than by 1.0 but than again im running some stock stuff on my 1.0.

I liked it but im going to try to get the most out of my 1.0 as i can.

Ok, finished the build today. I haven't ran SC since before the 1.0 was released. I used to run the jammin and drilled holes to lay down the battery, put Losi 8 shocks on it, etc. etc.

This is one nice kit. Truely a race worthy product! Excited to get it to the track

You get what you pay for

Ryan/Casper - what is the part number or size for the set screw used to adjust the play in the sway plastic mount (page 18, 30). The part number listings on the left side of the pages are wrong, duplicate, or refer to a complete set.

Also, are there any HA 7075 options to replace the plastic LOSIB2103 spacers like we have on the 22?

Honestly you're obviously going to get different answers for this or people are going to tell you what I'll tell you, this is 1 of those decisions you have to look into and research for yourself and choose what you like best

I was in the same boat, If you want to try something different, both trucks top notch. I had the SCTE since it came out (about 5 of em lol) Going to buy the tekno to try something different!

Ran a 2.0 for the 1st time tonight(thanks HKrob) and it felt very good,was more forgiving and felt as tho the speed was there.With in a few laps I was easily hitting faster laps than in mY race w/ the 1.0. This on a truck not set up for me, have no idea what tires and a radio i`m not used to. One truck will fit your driving style better,or just pick which one you feel like wrenching on ,or which the peeps at yer track run.On this thread we`re prolly gonna say go 2.0

They run quite well. They don't have the bottom end of a 4 pole but seem to run a little faster then the pro-4 if geared right and some timing. The are 2.5oz heavier then the Pro-4. It is on just a couple grams.

I believe these are 3.5mm holes. I am not aware of any alum hub spacers that have the 3.5mm hole.

I finished my build yesterday. Only issue during the build was the tight shock bottoms. Everything else went really well which was pleasing since this was my first kit build. My SCTE 1.0 was almost stock full weight running a Castle Mamba Monster and a 1410 3800kv (obviously sensorless). The new truck is running a Tekin pro4 with a Hobbywing 120 V3 running sensored. The old truck was running bladder shocks and the new is emulsion. I guess I'm trying to say that despite it being version 2.0 of the same truck they are very different. To my surprise the new truck drove very well with default setup (apart from 30wt shock oil because it's hot here in northern Australia) and felt somewhat quicker than the old truck in every way..not a great deal quicker at any single point though just quicker everywhere. It has more rear grip out of corners yet doesn't understeer as much on sweepers and larger radius corners. It turns in a little better to the point where for my first few laps I was hitting the inside barrier on hairpins because the old truck would drift wider. Despite the additional power of the pro4 4600 on 13t pinion vs 15t on the castle (it's a tight track) it got the power down a little better onto the straights. It was more settled in the fast sections that had small elevation changes that would have the old truck bouncing around. It jumps better and feels more controlled in the air. Our meet is this wednesday night so I will have times to verify if it is as quick as I think it is. At this stage I expect to beat my PB even though it will only be my third pack through the truck.
