What is it for?
Clear Grease? Are you sure that is not the shock oil?

For those that are searching for more steering out of the 2.0, I'm not sure if anyone has tried the forward rake like the 22-4 (as described by T. Hodge)??

The bottoms ones go right in without a problem.

Sorry for asking another newb question...
I'm trying to find a dirt cover for the SCTE 2.0. I've seen that it's possible to mount a 1/8 buggy body as inner body?
Does anybody know, what type of bodies fit best? Losi/TLR?

Thanks!

STRC does NOT make any that I am aware of. Hot Racing and Integy does though.

Just went through the first 4 packs as I've already striped a rear driveshaft pin... luckily I got my second SCTE 2.0 today (need 2 to be able to have enough parts for racing).

I guess medium to high bite carpet puts more stress to them than normal.

youtu.be/FCEVzZ69m_w (just a few seconds before it striped)

I've read about the MIP Pucks Center Dive System, which I think I will get. How about stronger driveshafts? Is the Tekno RC M6 the only optional set?

Thanks

I would go with tekno driveshafts front rear and center if you're running carpet. I have the MIP pucks and they are really nice and light but you might see some quick wear on the plastic inserts and aluminum bones. I run mostly on medium bite so I'm not putting as much stress on them and have minimal wear.

I tighten mine as much as I possibly can. Using a savox 1258tg, not worried about breaking gears. Ran it like this for almost a year now with 0 issues

I had tekno's on both the front and the rear. They are stronger, but also much more expensive than stock losi parts to replace. I just put the stock shafts back on the rear, left the Tekno's on the front.

I love the tekno's but 2 stub axles are $18.99 vs 9.99 for stock losi axles. Same thing with outdrives and shafts, twice the price for Tekno replacement parts. Now that i've learned to drive it better, I think the Losi's should hold up fine

Does anyone have a droop measurement for the Dunford setup?
I know it says " Full plus 2 turns" but I would like an actual mm measurement if possible.
Thanks

I'd like to know the answer to this too. Front and rear settings.

Anyone know if bye MIP puck inserts will fit on the stock shafts? I want to take some play out of the driveline but am not ready to put down that coin to replace working parts.
