Default Just wondering

Are there any rumors of a 3.0 kit, looking at getting a new 4x4 scte kit. Don't want to buy a 2.0 and within 2 months there's a 3.0 kit.

I don't see a 3.0 coming anytime soon like that.

Feel the same way, had a 1.0 original version. Bought it when they first came out, nothing but happiness with it. Merry Christmas to ME! Just ordered last night, can't wait to start the build.

Check to make sure the shocks move freely. Many people over tighten the upper shock mounts and this binds the shocks. Also make sure you have your shock bleed properly. There should be no rebound in the shock.

I can't immagine that a 3.0 would be in the works any time soon as the 2.0 basically seams to have come out to address some of the shortcomings of 1.0

My 2.0 might be the most complete and fun rc car I have purchased. I cannot see how many upgrades would be enough improvement to justify the expenese vs the kit setup.

..I mean really what would you change? I guess that would be a better question (not to open a can of worms) I would not touch it at this point.The funny thing is,(or smart thing) Ryan took everyone's`s suggestions from the growth of the 1.0 and put all that into creating the 2.0...

Default Tekno M6 Drive Shafts

Can anyone confirm if the Tekno M6 driveshafts for front and rear require the Tekno outdrives, or do they work with the Losi Lightened and Hardened outdrives? My losi drive shafts that came with the kit are hitting the outdrives and started to wear. Want to replace them with the Tekno ones, but don't want to replace the outdrives if not required.

I've been running the Dunford setup on Casper's site on different tracks and it's really good. Have you tried it?

Tekno center driveshafts are direct replacement. The others require the tekno out drives.
