Not sure what all it takes to make the conversion but the platform has the parts to make the conversion. Agian if you want a SCT, SCB or MT, Losi has the RTR for you. All the RTR come with AVC as well which is great for bashing in loose conditions.

I am currently borrowing a mates Teken setup at the mo(RX8, pro 4 4300kv) and running a 15t pinion on a mid to open track med grip, would this gearing still suit the HW?

If you plan to race you will want the 4300 in the 3652 540 1/10 motor.
Running the 3660 motor will make the truck have an over abundantly right side weight bias that will unbalance the chassis and force you to run more preload on the springs on the right side of the truck to keep things leveled out. Besides, it's completely unnecessary to run anything more than a 540 4 pole on the super light SCTE platform.

Also the new 3652 G2 motor has now been ROAR approved making your truck completely legal for such events.

And yes, a 15t pinion will be a perfect starting point with that motor.

Here is the ROAR info I speak of>

Glad I could help. But if you want to spend that $10 wisely I recommend you get one of these> Super Capacitors #4 Module
Having that on-board will triple the amount of caps you have and further knock out voltage ripple and smooth out burst loads keeping your ESC and battery cooler and more efficient, especially on 2s SCT's.
I have seen cases where adding these cap packs has reduced temps by as much as 18f deg. No joke. I put them on everything running 2S with great results.

Yes, the only reason I suggested the 4 cap set was because I over kill everything. The 2 cap set will give you very similar results in my experience.

And this just plugs in to the receiver?
Sorry never heard of these.

No sir, these are soldered right to the battery post just like your battery terminals on the ESC side.
The caps that hook into your reciever are for preventing brown outs. Not really an issue outside of older spektrum stuff. You shouldn't have an issue with this with the newer hobbywing ESC's since they are capable of running 7.4v output through the BEC.
Here is a diagram so you can see what I mean
Note that this a castle cap pack and it has pole mounts instead of flexible wires like the hobbywing cap packs. but you still get the point seeing how it is soldered inline with the battery input terminals.

Looks good, but doesn't perform any better. Buy the 3.0 unit off ebay instead. Good upgrade over V-1 and 2.0 truck. Rod ends also worthy upgrade when yours slop out.

Hi guys,

Just bought a SCTE 2.0 Troy Lee and as I opened the box and span the wheels 3 out of 4 was wobbly as hell. Checked the wheels and none of them were deformed or broken. Checked the cvds and they seems to be all right. What can be the problem? Should I take it back to the hobby store?
