I just broke one at the same spot at Motorama during the A main. Hit a pothole mid turn and just snapped. I have seen a couple break on high bite off road carpet but I've had my truck since it first released and had no issues as far as I can remember

Does this only happen in the front, or in the rear too?

I had this happen on a front CVD and found that the crosspin slot was not machined all the way in the other one of the pair (that didn't break). I actually ended up with 4 pieces like that. I thought about taking pics to illustrate the problem and calling Losi to get replacements but in the end I just used the ones that weren't machined properly in the rear where it didn't make any difference.

Default A little clueless

Putting a rx8 gen 2 and a thunder power 4.5 550 in my 2.0. I remember reading some pages back that it was critical to adjust the timing with a 550 motor. Now I see the numbers on the back of the motor, I'm assuming to adjust the timing......could u guys please break down and give me an understanding of what timing actually is, and how I should be setting this set up, up. Critical did sound pretty important. Please advise.

Tekin suggested profile 4 on the timing and zero on the can. Gearing should be a 13, if on a big track then 14.

Unfortunately, it's all the way around the truck. The last 2 that did break were front but im sure the rears are soon to follow. Think I'll leave the scte at home for this last weekend of felt racing and have a go at it once the dirt is in place and see what happens. I will also give her a good once over again before I lay this heavyweight finger back into her again lol!

[QUOTE=hacker07;13064911]Ken, this play is normal and actually for most people will make the truck easier to drive. It is that way by design.



Thanks for the response. So how do you go about getting an accurate camber and toe in/out settings with the "play" ?

Thanks
Ken

Drop the truck and roll it forward a few inches and you can get some pretty accurate measurements.

Toe is kind of by eye always.

DE setup wheels make all this so much easier and more accurate.

Thanks MadDog, looking forward to running this motor. Ran a pro 4 4600 before, looking forward for something new.

First... love the SCTE 2.0. Been a great truck! I went to the JR Mitch setup last week. Changed the shock inserts from the stock from stock #6 to #54 and the rear from stock #7 to #55. I closed off two of the four holed on each of them.

Truck runs great around the track, but I'm getting a nose dive effect now. I can't keep the nose up in the air off the jumps unless i'm on the gas full throttle. I have 35wt in the front and 27.5 wt in the rear. Any thoughts on what else could have cause the back to kick up and the front to nose dive? Little help here.
