Default Stick on weight

Years ago there was very thin weight tape just for balancing tires. Now I see all they use is clay. I would rather use the firm tape for wheel balancing then clay. Heck I may wash it off when cleaning the tires.

Clay actually works quite well and also using some poster puddy works well. You can typically find it at a $.99 store or the like. Using something like lead tape will be hard to tune. Using clay or similar makes finding the fine balance easier and you can retune your tires as they wear if you choose.

That is an OLD setup.

I would guess as it is not noted you have 0 inserts in the the front end.

The rear end 1's up give you 3 deg of antisquat.
0's in the back give you 3 deg of toe in.

These are for the 8ight but the adjustments are the same for the ten

No it will still be the SCTE 2.0 from what I understand it's not new its just updated parts/materials for better wear. and things like heavier swaybars for more tuning options and so forth.
It's not a redesign it's a refinement.

Actually parts in the kit are the same as in same kit setup (read as swaybars and any option parts included in the box).

New vendor and retooled molds fix very minor issues in fit and finish of the kit. Same truck just new!

The thicker swaybars are option parts coming in soon from what Ryan has said. They are stuck in the harbor due to the longshoreman's strike/what ever they were doing.

Default Is this a TLR scte 2.0???

Hey guys I need your help identifying this scte truck. The guy that is selling it claims this is a TLR scte 2.0 but the chassis does not match the photos on the TLR website. Did the truck change chassis after the 2.0 revision? Any info would be great thanks.Official TLR TEN-SCTE 2.0 Kit Thread-losi-2.0.jpg
