I am sorry but it is too long and would crash into the center diff.

Went past my LHS last week to order some M4 Calibers for the 2.0 and was horrified to learn they are discontinued!!!!!!! so I asked him to get M3's and hes not able to get them either... Proline still has m3's on their website but the M4 is gone......
we people in the north and East that dont have sugar coated concrete NEED these tires!!!
I just DID order 4 pairs from AMAIN where the m4's were still in stock..... getem while they're hot kids

Do you think the new servo mount/top brace for the 8ight e 3.0 will fit the scte 2.0? It's regarding the receiver box. TLR241004

Thay said in the 8ight 3.0E thread that none of the parts interchange with the scte only some screws will work.

Is SCTE 2.0 and SCTE MIP same car geometry wise if MIP has same shocktowers than 2.0.

I have MIP and it has weird problem when driving 180degree corner. In the last 1/4 of curve when you are accelerating out car kind of hooks and turns much more than you could anticipate.

It feels like inner rear wheel lightens up too much and rear diff cant transfer torque to outer wheel and when car settles and inner inner wheel gets good contact with track it like pushes car and it turns too much.

What to do to prevent that? I have quite basic setup. piston nr 3 all over and 30W oils. I have medium swaybars F/R. Running height is about 26mm F/R

Front has soft springs and rear medium.

I have tried quite many setups but without good results.

Diff are something like 10/7/3. I have to check reardiff because it feels like empty (New diffs installed)

I have tried different kickups and rear toe settings too.

Do you make 0 rebound for shocks with bladders? I have 0 rebound.

Sounds like you have a case of diff whip as the tekno guys would say. Basically your rear diff oil is too low. Try going to 5000 in the rear. The MIP towers are different then the 2.0 scte towers.

The no box servo mounts are identical between the two. As far as fitting the servo mount with the receiver box, it might fit with some dremeling, meaning the screw holes line up perfect to the chassis, but the sideguard gets in the way on the SCTE 2.0. So you could likely get it to fit with dremeling if you really feel you need a receiver box.

I did... I put most of it together last night. ordered the 2.0 braces. I heard the plastic ends are the weak link. The part number for them is the whole brace. Can I just buy the plastic ends to have as spares? If so what part number am I looking for? Is there a more heavy duty option for the plastic ends from a different company or perhaps off the 8th scale buggy? And yes I know to screw the set screw all the way into the plastic to make them last longer.
