integy carrier and knuckle both work great together on the scte, couple micro shims to tighten it up,I also used teflon tape on bearing to tighten it up on fitment,they are about the same as the tlr rear billets,they need teflon on bearings also if you want it slop free and tight

I did some research a couple weeks ago because I had the same question. I haven't purchased them or tested them yet but I believe they will work based off the description. To double check, if you have digital calibers you should measure the length of your pins just to be sure.

axle pins, diff pins, hex pins....

Hey guys, I'm new here, I just got an SCTE 2.0 because I visited NorCal hobbies while on a business trip/interview (actually will be relocating to San Jose pretty soon) and I really want to get into racing. Bashing has been tons of fun, but trying to constantly turn a quicker lap is like a drug for me.

Anyway, I'll probably have more questions in the future, but I've got two for right now.

1) bought a j concepts chassis protector sheet and cut it out - one little session later, it started peeling off.. Do most people here constantly buy new chassis protectors or d a lot of people just say to hell with having a clean chassis?

2) what size is the nut that is used on a lot of suspension linkages and stuff.. I'm guessing it's standard, but most of my StuffIt metric and I want to order the right wrench.


Thanks again guys and looking forward to participating.

Shock length is measured eye to eye.

15 deg refers to the angle of the upright in relation to the arm. The 15 deg uprights are more laid back than stock.

I wanted to ask about the bump steer setting. You are sayin the direction of the spacer on the ball dertermines bump steer up or down?
Or is it the location of the ball itself that determines this?

On the latest set-up it has it labeled as> Bump Steer: Inside-down, Outer-up.
I read this as the location of the balls. Inside-down means the ball is down (spacer would be up). Outer-up means the ball is up (spacer would be down).

Us old guys get easily confused.... but still fast

Bending my front and rear chassis braces (torque rods) upon the 'occasional' dart. Sometimes the plastic part gets tweaked, sometimes the threaded part bends. It really has to be a hit for it to bend, but it happens.

Anyone know if MIP braces fit the 2.0 chassis? Or, are those specifically for the MIP chassis?

Thanks.

Yes those fit both the 2.0 and the -3mm chassis.

Are the new fluids and oils with all the new TLR kits certified oils and fluids? Or should I throw them out and order new fluids and oils? Thanks

Diff oils are typically pretty good. I would not sue the shock oils if you are tuning for racing.

Default wire run under driveshaft?

Hey all, does anyone have a clean looking way to run wires under the driveshaft in the front of the truck? I'm worried about chafing the receiver wires that run across to the ESC. Thanks!
