I did some work on my cutback earlier.
I eneded up putting the newer esc in the spot where the stock one was installed originally. Then adjusted my ride height after installing the upper shock mounts. I decided to be safe and order the losi upper shock mounts (LOSB2906).



Losi scte 10-T Shock Mounts (4) (From LOSB2906) SCTE-10 10T 2.0 Ten-T 810

Picked these up from ebay for $2.99 (4 pcs) plus shipping.

Here are shots of my truck so far.






Below, are the cvd center driveshafts F & R. You also get some spare parts in the packs.

Been playing with mine in the snow. I made a spray shield for the front wheels, it helps a lot from keeping the snow from packing on the esc. It gets stuck in the deep stuff, but it's a lot of fun to drift around in the plowed parking lot. Some pieces are starting to rust a bit. Looks like it's just surface rust and should wipe off Ok.

Drove mine after work this afternoon. What a blast. The swaybars worked amazingly. Reduced body roll to almost nonexistence.

I need a bigger battery 5000mah isn't a very long run in the snow. Blasts through about 2" without too much issue, much more than that and it will get stuck without a running start

Has anyone stuck with the stock 62t spur and tried a larger pinion?

Took it to a indoor track tonight. We the optional spur and 17 pinion it kept up with the high end trucks it handled the track amazing and took the jumps just as good. Ultimaterc did a video review on the truck. He had 3 shocks fall apart during testing the truck. Tonight I had 2 shocks come apart. For some reason it seems there not getting tightened up enough from the factory. Take the time to take yours shocka off and tighten the nut on the shafts. Other than that change urban spur pinion and put a piece of nitro line in the center rear drive shaft to take the play out and I promise u it will keep up with the slashes and solve urban nose dive issues. One other thing get the sway bars. It almost prevents the roll overs on the track. My cutback ran and handled better than my senton and fury really impressed

The swaybars make a huge difference. I noticed it right away after installing them and running the truck. Well worth it.
