Yes, tell us about the motor temps.
And also let us know how the losi wheels fit.

I''l do more with my truck and report this weekend. My new (hopefully they fit) Losi scte shocks will arrive tomorrow.

My Losi SCTE Shocks came in today. They will fit, all I need to do is swap the little pivoting parts from the lower eyelets of the stock shocks and pop them into the lower eyelets of the Losi's.

These are beautifully made shocks.

My truck came today! Haven't gotten a chance to open it up yet, but I'm hoping to rebuild the shocks tonight with 40wt, and add 125k to the center diff.

I got them from ebay from a seller called dollarhobbyz.

they were around 20.00 a set. Fully assembled and oil filled. There were pulled from a new scte.

Here are some pics.

I popped out the pivot balls from the stock shocks and losi shocks, and swapped them for propper fitting.

I used little metal washers for the top eyelets. bam!











I cannot wait to test this out!!

I forgot to mention the sway bars are installed too. LOL

I am unsure what the shock oil wt is. Whatever the stock oil is in the shocks. I have no idea what wt of shock oil losi puts in the stock shocks.

I need to do some homework on that.

The shocks look really nice. Feel good too.

Got my shocks rebuilt with 40wt, feel MUCH better than out of the box. Also filled the center diff filled with 125k and the 54t swapped on with a 17t pinion. Goes good in the living room

Sounds good. I bet it zoomed across your livingroom.. LOL.

I did that a few times with other trucks and buggies. Drove my cats crazy.

Someone asked about a body for the truck.... A slash body is a DIRECT FIT! Body mounts line up perfectly to pre-drilled holes. Just an FYI....

Losi shocks look good... let us know how they perform.

I have not run my truck for a while and now I am itching to run it again!
