AND don't go and tell me there's no problem with your faulty product and say its not your product. Been building cars for years and its a flat out issue on Losi's end.
I don't know what you're talking about either. Mine went together just fine.

Kit looks real nice but Losi really needs to improve the quality of there screws. Too damn soft. I just started the build and already stripped the diff screws.

I live in a city with a population of 8000ish people and my LHS DOES NOT SELL ANYTHING OVER THE INTERNET and yet he sells $200k from HH alone and he also orders from other companies that dont have what HH has for other customers and so far he has sold 5 of the SCTE 2.0's and he cant keep them in and if one for a day or 2 before it sells with mine being the only 1 he ordered for a person the rest were just 1 or 2 he ordered and then sold so he ordered more so its obviously the lack on your LHS to order and sell becuz our SMALL hobby shop doesnt have an issue..
as far as the don't blame HH coment , my LHS did about 95k in horizon sales last year (what i was told) and they have a great selection of losi parts/kits the best in probably 100 mile radius what ever part you need for the scte/8ight there is a 99% chance they have it but they are not a certified partner... they have no POS system so the only way to become a HCP is the 100k a year. but you say blame the LHS? i find it funny that TLR is no longer participating in the HCP program. but you still think it is the LHS that is the problem.

[QUOTE=SuperDaveNT;11991924]This kit is all Metric Nuts and Screws now right?[/QUOTE



Nope sadly no. Although i know the team drivers dont recommend this but but some of the screws are 2.0 mm and ive used a Metric hex on them because some of my standard hex drivers are shot. But using the Metric Hex will eat into the stardard screws overtime, so i would take a look at the Losi Muti Hex driver with both Stardard and Metric.

Most of the flat head and button head screws are 5/64 head. This is almost the exact same size as the 2mm so you can use either wrench without problem.

The kit is all std hardware. It would have cost far too much to retool the entire car to mm hardware and the Ten and Eight series have all been std hardware from the get go.

Is the slop in the steering/outdrives still in the 2.0 like the 1.0 after 3 or so racedays?
