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.
That's some good info there thanks for sharing.

The motor support is just the first thing that shows itself as a issue with the out drives floppin and center diff wearing out and leaking. If you have not noticed massive slop in your axles and and drive shafts,you either havent ran enough packs in the scte or you already have tekno gear in it. We are just pleased to hear the revised kit has some things made better. It does help to heat treat all the steel parts in oil,but it would be nice to not have to do that.the motor support does not need to be alum at all,A plastic part recast with dual bearing support would save people 80 bucks on on the kghdz a/m mod

keep in mind we are talking about running MANY packs at the track with plenty of large jumps through these,not just casual use.
I'm impressed with all your testing and your efforts to get results that do make a difference. Its a tinkering level just beyond what most have done. Thanks for sharing your info. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Gave me a few ideas I have not considered. Hope you keep posting stuff like this. I know I want more of it.

That's not a chassis length issue, it's a setup issue.

When exiting turns the most common ways to help are move rear hubs forward or lighter center diff fluid. When entering turns move hubs back, stiffer front springs, move camber link up on tower, heavier front diff fluid. There are other ways to help like camber, ride height, sway bars, etc. What setup are you running?

agreed.

ride height could be off, put a Dunford setup on it to the T then test.

Could be as easy as tires too.

Dangit just freakin rebuilt the truck top to bottom and now I got to tear it right back down for the shorter chassis Thanks TLR for the new option chassis, think it will help on the smaller tracks a bunch.

Did your kit come with blue or black front springs? Are you running drag brake? You're sure the tires are right for the track conditions?

One thing I have an issue with is a push on corner entry, it comes out of the corners nice and settles down after the jumps and goes nice down the straights. I am running a modified setup from the manual, waiting on the new stuff from TLR to switch the sway bars and such.

Steering and jumping ability of the 2.0 combined with the ability to push the car as hard as the 1.0! I had the BCE on my 1.0 and it was awesome,never bent anything and made the car amazing. Can't wait to get mine!
I'd like hear updates on this. I have worked with the bce
chassis on the 1.0 and can't get the 2.0 to handle as well with stock chassis no matter what ever tried.

Unless you can find one at a hobby shop or used they're not available anymore. Bill passed away last year and no one else took over.
