I bought my 2.0 used 2 years ago. It was a fresh build with about 2-3 race nights on it. Raced it twice a month since on outdoor low to medium traction dirt. I had one, I repeat one bearing failure on my truck. It was the outer pinion bearing on the rear. I just recently went through the truck and the only piece that "needed" replaced was my front drive shaft. The pins on the center diff side were all that were worn. Very worn actually. But held up through the last race. Very well built truck IMO and reliable. Will I get the 2.0 2.0??? Sure... Who doesn't love a freshy!! But this truck will last longer then most. Kudos to all involved with the design and redesign with this truck!!!

We dont need to rehash the losi plastic ball ends and alum balls. The rest of the plastics are great ive seen them survive huge crashes. Our losi eight buggies and truggies that use the steel balls must also use a diff grade plastic,they far outlast the scte 2.0 and take a harder beating. I am deff a rc tinker kinda guy,I like to know what works and what doesnt and I dont like to do more maintenance than I have to.
I built the front diff with stock losi washer on one side,mip on the other,tekno out drive axle and cvd on one side stock losi on the other.In the back same thing but reversed sides and used a xray washer.Used a front tekno drive shaft and a rear losi.used stock losi motor carrier in rear and kinghdz front After few months of hard use. The stock losi washers were worn almost half way through no visible wear to mip or xray,The out drives looked about the same both sides,but the ends of losi cvds were almost completely worn through,The losi axle holes for the pins were wallowed out 3x larger. The tekno axles and cvds were very hard to see wear at all.The losi drive shaft had 3 x more slop than the tekno even with less load and angle used in the rear than the front tekno supported by the dual bearing kinghdz. So take it for what it is,if you use the scte alot,but these parts and perform less maintenance or encourage losi to make them better.In the scheme of the whole kit they are very minor parts to improve on.

As I said I replace the drive shafts. Axles and outdrives last.

Thats not quite what you said,you asked me why i was heat treating axles cause yours lasted forever.that was just my answer.I have not tested a heat treated losi against a tekno,but im sure they would do far better. Big thanks for all your help in making this a better SC,Im looking forward to seeing how much better the revised kit parts do in comparison. The big question still remains,when will the revised parts be available as replacement parts?

Has anyone run into issues when using the Losi 801 buggy 17mm hexes with rubbing on the body? I just painted up a JConcepts illusion high flow and had to set the body post 2nd from the highest setting just to barely get any rub at full compression of the front shocks.

Im running Sc8 wheels with Aka city block 2 wides

This is a hop up option part for anyone looking to get more rotation while maintaining rear traction on the vehicle. The updated truck still comes with the standard length chassis is is well proven and works great many places.

The -3 chassis helps the vehicle be more agile and turn in and out better.

Does this chassis require any different parts?

Will the new -3 chassis be a direct bolt on to the existing 2.0. Without having to shorten up the middle drive shafts? Thanks
