thx
Yes those towers have been out a while and are designed for the 8ight 2.0 shocks which were 9mm longer than the scte shocks. The 3.0 shocks are about 9mm longer than the 2.0 were. The 3.0 shocks will physically bolt up and work but there will be the same problem as running 2.0 shocks on scte with stock towers. Too much down travel and not enough up travel for best performance.

Well, its finally done. Managed to find a receiver box small enough to fit the 2.0
Wires are cleaner safer. Here is the final product.

Casper likes the ride height a bit different so you may want to play with that some depending on your personal driving style.

Please let me know and please if you are going to try it, try the whole thing and you can play with bits of it past that. This is the first setup specific to the SCTE 2.0 that I have done.
On the Ryan Dunford setup sheet it calls for 1 up hinge pin insert front inner and 1 down insert front outer. What about the rear inserts? stock set up?

I'm noticing that on this Dunford setup he's running a 39t spur. Does anyone other than MIP make a 39t?

Hows the class at Pegasus these days?
I'm going to be heading out there in about a month, its been 2 years since I was there last and I had a great time.
Ya,what`s up Doogie?
The track has been off and on for a while, alot of nights no 4x4 sct at all,but lately there has been some.Don't know if IERC was here last time you showed but worth a look for sure.Ya my truck had the glued up 22 pistons and then 1 came unglued LOL. I really liked how the shocks felt on the 1.0 so that's what I run.The new Dunford set up uses silver rear springs I think? My 1.0 had the BCE chassis, so does this one, maybe it just feels more like what I was used too?LMK when you get here!

Hi,
I'm new to RCTECH and just in the progress of switching from a Durango DESC410v2 to the TLR SCTE 2.0.
(The desc410 is fast but I had some issues with the durability and quality of parts and I want a SC that is easy in maintenance)

I've been attending some indoor races so far with my rango and now the next 4 races with the TLR will also be on carpet... I'm looking forward to build and setup this badboy

While I had been running a 5.5turn VST2 550 2 pole Team Orion on our medium-small outdoor track, I did us a 4600kv 540 4 pole VST2 Orion for indoor carpet racing so far... seemed to have enough speed and power.
But when I look at the (US) Nats or EOS and other large races, the pro drivers seem to race 2 pole 550 cans more often? Is there a reason for that?

Thanks,
Dave

I dont think IERC was around when I was out there last, I know I got to hit up Pegasus and Revelation a couple times each while I was out there.
I'll definitely give ya a buzz when I get out there, looking forward to racing out west again.

I should be picking my 2.0 up tonight, got a smoking deal on a basically new kit. All the seller has done is put the steering assembly on the chassis, the rest is in bags still.
I've already ordered a couple of feet of wire and a 275mm sensor wire for it, so hopefully TQ gets that stuff to me quick and wont hold me up too long.
I'm really looking forward to getting this one built and on the track.

Good to hear. How do the mip shafts hold up on a blown out 1/8 track?

ROAR rules. ROAR specifies that 540 4 pole motors OR 550 2 pole motors are to be used.
