Ryan and I were to swap the lead a couple times for a great race and David Jenson running his SCTE 1.0 one last time (we "team" built his SCTE 2.0 during the race day as he just received his kit the day before) was able to pull in the last podium spot for the TLR SCTE clean sweep of top three spots in the Expert 4WD SC class. And yes there was an army of the "other" truck at this event!
Good job guys, I couldn't find the results on LiveRC, the last race it's showing is the Friday club racing.

Any info would be great! thanks!
Should always buy new becuz it never hurts to refreshen everything...and yes, its more that way but you could have parted yours out and kept the electrics to make up the difference...i sold my roller for more than a new roller thanks to just a few upgrades.

Casper mentioned the parts "should be on the same boat" but said hopefully Ryan would chime in with more info so you cant be upset at them becuz of the comment when you keep checking the website and it shows a date i would use that date more than someone saying something and then if it becomes available earlier its a good thing but to expect it early like the truck is just setting yourself up for heartbreak

Plus keep in mind that the parts will go to HH, ship to places from there and the kits went right straight to HCP stores. But hopefully they can help you out alittle more on the time frame


ON ANOTHER NOTE...
are the KH mounts still going to be a good upgrade or just roll with stock but i kno the diff mount did stiffen up things in the driveline

Thanks for confirming the KH motor mount fits! Did you check/need to shim the rear differential with the aluminum inserts? You pretty much have the same setup I have once I get the upgrade parts.......wink wink nudge nudge at Ryan . I'm going to stick with the RX8 and would rather spend the dollars on the upcoming pro4 HD motor; even though it sounds like the current pro4 is working out well.

The King Headz motor mounts fit perfectly. I didn't feel any need to shim the rear diff with the aluminum inserts... Snug figment with no play. With the KH mounts, I don't think a bigger spur can be used.. Stock spur sits about 1mm off of chassis.

Otherwise promoting the parts are on same boat is a really big tease.
I was not in the shop on friday, I will check on monday and see whats going on with the parts. It shouldnt be that long. I know they are working on getting them checked in asap.

Some people jsut like to spend money on their toys . If I thought that was necessary myself, I would make one but dont need the extra weight for no performance gain.

There is no reason why it shouldnt fit, Just not sure with the new diff cases why its necessary.

Maybe not necessary, but since I already own it from my 1.0, It can't hurt to use!

Yea the new diff cup i have on my center diff did take a good amount of wobble out . I would get it just because it makes the truck quiter and reduce the wear more.

Hey guys, I recently ordered this kit from my Lhs. Should have it in two weeks or so. I've had the 1.0 sence it came out; been running the castle 3800kv 4 pole and rx-8. That match has worked out fairly well for my use, which is mostly tearing up the woods, and occassionally racing. I woulden't mind having a little more power and control in the motor department. Thinking about the Tekin 4 pole or maby the revtech 4 pole. Which one is better for this car? Or is another motor out that is better?
