I can assure you the SRX platform is nothing like a 22,22sct.

Im sensing some scared Losi fanboys here. The SRX series is nothing like the 22 series, not even close in any manner. Ive owned both buggies and there is no comparison, apples and oranges.

Nissan 240.....not sure who you're talking about but if I'm one of whom you speak you're sadly mistaken. No Losi loyalty and deff no fear here.in fact Losi should've taken the composite as apposed to metal. We've had countless arguments over this. To make a long story short.......im glad serpent released this truck and if it performs as good as it looks I'll be getting 3!

I have seen BE run it in person and he was turning lap times almost as fast as mod buggy guys.


BTW First batch has shipped!

So because it has the same ratio and plastic chassis it is a copy?
How many ways can you make an SCT? If anything the Losi is a copy of the kyosho RB which is a copy of "XXX" who copied the same front end of the original RC10 gold pan which used internal gears off of a Traxxas TRX-1

I happen to own a Spyder and its very unique in just about every way quite a bit different from the norm. Ackerman is adjusted on the hubs, tranny dif height can be adjusted, triple slipper, a real steering rack, all captured ball ends and the list goes on.

Now the real question is how i can convert this truck to a stadium truck!

Gearbox ratio is 2.43:1. Looks like kit comes with 87t spur.

I guess that may be a 19 or 21 pinion. 80 foot straight

You gotta get another spur. That 17.5 will be way under geared. Something around 75 with a 26-27 would be better.
