Default Losi ten scte 2.0 build

Hello guys I am building the scte 2.0 kit and I am currently working on the differentials. There are 3 tubes of oil in the kit and I am not sure what to use where. I think the 27.5Wt goes in the shocks but where does the 5k and 3 k oils go? I searched the web and the manual and I cannot find anything on it. Please help.

Thanks,

Tom

Yes 27.5 in the shocks and 5000 in front diff/5000 in center diff and 3000wt in rear diff.
This might help with diff build and how to fill them properly,

Anyone have any tricks to rebuild shocks with out that special wrench with the holes to hold onto the shafts?


Trying to rebuild my SCTE shocks and put new pistons in and I can't I do the nut with out the shaft spinning. And I don't want to buy that specialized tool.

Before I got some shock shaft pliers I just used some diagonal wire cutters and held onto the shaft right above the shock eyelet. The wire cutters on the inside of needle nose work as well.

A piece of rubber like a bit bicycle inner tube wrapped round the shaft and gripped with some pliers is what I used to do

I am seeming to have issues with my center diff install. The motor mount wouldnt line up with the chassis whatsoever. Now that it is on with some brute force the spur gear seems pretty stiff. It doesnt rotate freely. Ideas? Is it normal?

No not normal. Sounds like the bearings need to be pressed onto the diff case further. Hold the diff case up to the light, there should be no gap between the bearing and the case. if there is you need to tap the bearing on further.

Thats what I thought. Bearings are almost like they are to small. Been smashing them almost just to get them on. Not to mention my hex tool just snapped off inside a screw going into the diff. What a fantastic way to start a build.

sorry about the frustration, lots of good build tips towards the beginning of this thread.

use these for your diff screws, slightly smaller diameter with a larger hex

http://www.amain.com/HPI-25x12mm-Fla...crew-10/p56197

use deep sockets to press the bearings onto the diff outdrives just make sure you are pressing on the inner race as much as you can

Are those metric? It was my fault. Used crappy tools. Have a nice metric set but didnt have a nice standard set on hand.

Ended up getting the hex head out of the screw that broke off. Stayed up from 11-5am finishing the build. I work probably a lot slower than most of you all. But good news is, it's done. Eager to get it out on the track now.

We didnt have these bend during our testing. Once they hit the public, a few bent due to some pretty hard crashes so we changed the material. The latest batch should not even come close to bending.

Latest setup is at casper-rc.com. And we are not using a mugen sway bar. Most are using a front 8 sway bar.
