Also, I would say the Gen2 has a built in capacitor on it whereas the Gen1 may have some issues. So, depends on what generation RX8 you are running.

whats up guys and gals if there are some. got a chance to post a video of my scte 2.0 at trackside hobbies in wisconsin. the setup is from a outdoor dry dusty huge track so it wasnt prime setup but it was pretty good still. I have never been to this track it was a first time visit. very nice place.

Any one tried the "T-Bone Racing" front or rear bumpers for the SCTE?

Also, is there a better rear chassis brace out there than the kit one? I've broke the plastic rod end on mine twice.

A buddy has them on a 1.0 TLR truck.
They are pretty beefy and he hasn't broken them yet. He likes to drive into curbs at full speed and the bumpers allow the truck to deflect off the curbs.

I thought about putting them on the 2.0 truck but then thought they might affect the flying of the truck compared to stock

One trick to get the plastic rod ends to last longer is to make sure to thread the set screw ALL the way into the plastic rod end first as this fills the hole int he plastic and makes the entire part stronger. What is left over is more then enough to thread into the alum rod and this small trick makes the entire assy stronger. (this was covered in the SCTE 2.0 build tips.).

The stock bumpers have been revised a few times and are quite strong.

I agree they are strong, but mine are tweaked and I have to put a pair of vice grips on them over nite occasionally to get them back in the right spot (esp. the front).

I've broken the rear bumper too (with some help from my 8 yr. old).

I've got the T-Bone's on order. I'll post some pics when I get them.

I have a chevy silverado flotec that I painted up and cut for my sc10, but then sold it. I am wanting to mount up the body on my scte 2.0. Anyone know which mounting holes I need to use?

I run my mounts just like the scte 1.0 (without the spacers). That way I can use some older body's I have laying around from my 1.0 & xxx-sct. It also takes the guess work out of fitting a new body that is not marked for the 2.0

Look before you make the hole. I think there isn't an exact hole. And the 2.0 body does come with instructions check them out before you make any holes

hmm, ok. in the good ole days, I used to put a dab of grease on the posts and position the body, then drill out where the marks are on the inside. so much easier to do this when it is clear, lol.
