Hey Ryan, I was looking at your set up sheet from OCRC 11/2/15 with the 22 shock conversion. My question is: at the bottom of the page in the notes area it says "will have witness marks on front of arms and steering links, dremel accordingly". What do you mean by this?

Thank you

Check out page 302 of this thread - there's a couple posts on that page that explain what you're looking for.

Thank you. I get it now. Just checked for the "witness" marks and sure enough they were there so now just need to do a little dremeling.

Any plans to make a hardware kit for this truck, similar to the ones for the 8 and 22 series vehicles?
Just ran across them on Amain, and thought it would be something I would like to have for the pit box.

Could someone tell me what screws fit the gear mesh adjustment?

I looked on the manual and it says it's a 5-40. I bought 2 different packs and neither 5-40 screws fit, the threads were too big. Am I missing something here? Is it 4-40?

Should be tlr235001. 5-40 x 3/8 per manual. Did you happen to buy it used?... There's a chance someone stripped it and drill and tapped it to a different thread.

The screw box for the 8ight is great if you are looking to get spare hardware for the SCTE. Although all the screws are not the same this gets you the majority of the hardware as both are primarily 5-40 hardware

Yep that's what I have. I tried it again and it threads 1/3rd the way in and stops. I'm guessing there's too much loc tight build up in there. I bought the motor mount new so it hasn't been messed with.

Can someone do me a huge favor and measure the distance center to center of the holes on the battery hold down? Thanks!

Edit: I should add, I don't own a SCTE and am searching for a battery strap for a different car, and the one from the SCTE looks close, and might save me from having to make one.

I thought most packs out there is pretty much a standard in length? Don't understand why the mounting length would be different on what ever car your building. Also the mounting blocks have more holes than just the two center you know. If the Lowe chassis holes are what's an inch longer you can just mount the blocks with lower screws both on the outside holes instead of the center. TRL's battery strap style hold down is one of my favorite features on the truck. I hate velcro straps.

It's for an older car with slots for a NIMH 7 cell pack that is why the mounting location is longer.
