Default Tower Hobbies Order

Has anyone received an informative answer from Tower Hobbies when orders will be filled - is current mid May date for all open back-orders or only new orders? What about orders that were placed in March but are not filled yet? Here is the canned/typical/useless answer I got back:

Dear Tower Hobbies Customer,

Thank you for contacting Tower Hobbies. We apologize for the delay in receiving your back order. We are given estimated times of arrival from the manufacturer and these are subject to change at any time. These types of delays can be attributed to a number of factors, such as manufacturing or shipping problems. These delays can also be attributed to the possibility that we are not receiving sufficient quantities to fulfill all back orders. Our website is consistently updated with any availability changes, so you may check estimated arrival dates for out-of-stock items 24 hours a day. Thank you for your patience in this matter.


We appreciate your time and business.

Default BEC or Direct

On a lighter note, are most planning to run the steering servo off a BEC or go direct to battery? I'm planning to put a HW SCTPro in.

from what I was able to find out, sounds like there is a WHOLE LOT OF ORDERS at tower for the vehicle and Tekno is filling these as well as other places as fast as they can, in batches here and there.

So it will be interesting to see how the orders go.

As for servo, will be using the internal BEC, from the RX8 Gen 2.

So this is going to be my first SCT ever and the first time I've pulled the trigger on a car in a while. My past experience include 2wd stock buggy and 1/8 EBuggy. I intend to set my throttle EPA to 50% for several battery packs just so I can get used to driving again and get a feel for the car. Is there anything else I should expect while driving this thing?

Setup once assembled, if it matters:
Tekin RX8 Gen 2/Tekin 4300 HD
Futaba 4PX
Hitec Servo
SMC batteries

probably the biggest thing I can think of is watch how the vehicle reacts to abrupt jumps relative to nosing down.

Like cain said the jump characteristics of this truck (most 4x sct's) is about the only learning curve coming from those rigs you're used to.
You have to hold a little more throttle in the air than you're used to.

You have the right strategy, build speed up over a few days of running it.

one thing I wonder, I know the common attempt to fix is the battery tray mod, but curious what the results were is someone left the battery in stock location, but then added weight to the rear and how much.

I don't really see a big difference in flight attitude with moving the pack. I see more or less rear traction with the shift.
Your season should be starting soon, you should play around with it and see if it is more of getting shock setup right or weight bias.
I think that once you have your suspension setup right for your track moving the pack will be more of front vs rear traction.

I have gone back to a front position pack just to see and really didn't see a huge difference in the air. I do prefer the pack to the back so the forward position was brief.

I have done this on mine and it works great. I added the amount of weight it takes to balance the trucks weight distribution. This will be different for everybody's setup but for me I added 3 oz in the servo bay. I had to use shoe goo to keep it in there.
