No?

It is possible he got a set of the Losi 8 2.0 rod ends. They fit the same size tie rods and balls as the SCTE rod ends but are much looser on the balls. This is the difference between the old and new rod ends:



There was a running change and the old ones are no longer available under the LOSA6046 part number. The SCTE specific ones look like the old LOSA6046 but I don't know if they fit as tightly on the balls. Once I found out about the running change I bought as many of the old LOSA6046 as I could find.

Yes, all of the play in Tyler's new 2.0 is in the balls and links. The ackerman is actually very nice on fitment.

Hey Randy, I switched to the MIP dubro setup and it takes care of all that ball end slop.

We should hope and pray that Losi doesn't make (or hasn't already made) the same running change to the SCTE rod ends as they did to the Losi 8ight 4MM rod ends. Or we will all be stuck using the Dubro approach.

Just looked and Tyler's has the old style as pictured above. May go the MIP route then. It's just too much play for even me with it being brand new. Tyler's nitro 3.0 has a ton of gallons thru it and is not that loose. I agree loose is fast but, there is too much toe change with the links for me.

Hey Randy, Randy Cathcart runs them and says they last 2 to 3 times longer then the losi ball cups. The only down side is the ball uses a 4-40 screw but the hole can be drilled out to a 5-40. That is what Randy did. Give me a call and I will fill you in on it.

Yes Most of the SC foams now a days have 2 different lips, One side for the buggy side wall and One side for the SC side wall.

Casper or Ryan, what part number do I need? These will not work. The ones that came with the truck were a lot better when first assembled. The balls are not bad because some are still ok in the old plastic rodends.
Thanks

Everyone, we have a TON of stock of the correct part number which is LOSB4023. They have not changed at all. LOSB2187 is the part for the hard anodized balls that come with the 2.0.

Oh they changed, Maybe not on the Ball diameter, but years back when they were changed I found the New "updated" ends to be the worst of all in regards to the dreaded "Camber changing/Stripping rod end issue"

I cant off the top of my head remember the exact #'s, But the new ends were a Fraction larger in diameter resulting in less "bite" on the turnbuckle threads resulting is the problem getting worse.

Quite a few other Mfg's turnbuckle's are VERY tight when new and can sometimes be a pain to adjust at first but when you assemble a new Losi setup they aren't exactly tight by any means.

Are you using the silver springs because of the heavier motor?

He runs a 4600 its light compared to the HD. Think its to get the weight foward when off gass to help with steering. ( Silver )

I am running the Pro-4 and Dunford is running the Pro-4HD. We are both on silver springs. Only real difference in our cars is battery location due to him running the longer motor.

Where is everyone mounting their MyLaps? I've seen the carbon fiber mounts that are used in place of the center diff tops, but I already have a carbon fiber motor fan mount there. I'd like to mount it in the front, but don't want to rig it up by drilling a bunch of holes or just gluing it there.
