That's what I thought. Good thing I've already got a set.

Ryan already commented on this but to add some more, Ryan got taken out on the first lap and had to come from last. He worked his way up to 2nd and was easily on Barry's pace through the rest of the race. I finished 3rd. Ryan had he got out clean he and Barry would have put on quite a show. I have not run in 3 weeks and could not keep pace. It was me not the truck. By the main Ryan and I were both working on run 6 of our trucks and they were breaking in nice and handle great!

Kinda bugs when a question isn't answered. A lot of people have tried to even balance their SC while others around me like the weight forward. Has the 2.0 answered that and is more all around balanced?

I am sorry to have bugged you. This is a personal question in that, the optimum balance is really up to the driver. That is why we give the different settings for the battery placement. It will also depend on the electronics and the motor size. We tested 2 different esc's with both length motors, moved the battery around with 4 drivers for many packs...and thus we have things where they are now.

Ordered EVERYTHING to covert my truck! Cost me about $250.00 for people complaining about an upgrade kit, just order the parts needed. If you have a box stock scte your better off buying the new truck. For someone like me, I run indoor carpet...I just got this truck at the end of summer, (second one) and have done every possible tlr upgrade to it. To order the parts needed after that to do everything to my truck from the different size screws for front diff, and bumper, to the chassis and all mounting hardware it cost me around $250.00. So basically what you get is pretty much what you get in an mip kit. For 50 or so more dollars. Thats not too bad, and I dont mind paying that! Super stoaked for the parts to arrive so I can have my 2.0 put together!! Cheers to ryan for coming up with everything everyone has been waiting/asking for! It really is WHAT you need out of the box. THANK YOU TLR!

There's going to be some more races like that at my track. Only i think i'll be see a lot more of your trucks out there, (losi dominated track) Can't wait to see how the tekno and losi 2.0 race against eachother. So pumped for offroad season!

Thanks for the answer. The SCTE has given a lot of fun and it is great to see it continue.

The new 2.0 looks great. I have a few nitpicks about it but over all looks good and still the best looking shoutcourse.
I'm glad I've been broke the last few months and didn't pick up the original scte
