I am pretty sure the wire they give you will get you to the motor. Not sure if there is enough left over for the battery leads though.

I notice these are both must have upgrades but Losi still uses same old stuff and that is what everybody ends up replacing. I don't want replacement parts from HH I want parts that do not fail. Version "2" should = improvement and not require the number 1 product being upgraded by a aftermarket companies.
We are very careful when we choose material. The materials we chose for this vehicle are what we use for the 8ight platform. I cannot imagine failing anything on this vehicle in the first run but I am sure it happens. If you failed the arm that goes on the servo itself, you may want an aluminum one. Or your servo saver may be over-tightened. If you choose to tighten all the way like some of us do, you have to run the aluminum horn. That is the price that comes with that choice. As for the rear hubs...I have heard of some failing or breaking due to a bad crash in very cold weather, but parts do break from time to time and the aluminum hubs are there as an option for those that want it just like the 22 series and the 8 series.

Is any body running the AKA cityblocks soft compound tire on their scte? if so how is the tire working out for you. I am trying to get info on what tires works better when the weather starts off cooler and gets hotter and dryer as the race day goes on and when the track gets dusty or slicker in between waterings.

Tires are track dependant. If the track conditions call for a tire like a citiblock (loose dirt) then they should work. It is hard to answer this question without knowing your track conditions.

From exprience running the City blocks on the Buggy and Truggy not SC they seem to work better on moist tracks. More than Dry/dusty they tend to slide to much when they have some wear on them new there good on both ! But it depends on how your suspension is setup.

The tracks are mostly large hard packed dry and dusty at times but do get watered a couple times a race day but as the day goes on it gets hotter and dryer here in the midwest so the tracks get slicker.It doesnt take long for the tracks to dry out in between waterings

I tried Cityblocks for our local track here in Florida. Hard base with loose dirt/sand on top. They seemed decent but wore out way too fast(like 3 times out). Once the initial upper knobs wore off, the tires were useless. I went to Proline Tazers (very similar to AKA Gridirons) and have been very happy. Much more grip all over. Just my experience.
