Default Losi XXX-SCT Thread

Here is a nice mod (thanks skipgear) for using wheel hexes on all 4 corners along with the stock rear wheels on the front too.

Xxx-CR spindle and carriers. [LOSA1122]
(just use the spindles in the stock sct carrier. And take a 1/8" reamer and clear out the kingpin hole so you can use the SCT kingpin.)

Stock CR carrier is on the left.


Any losi 3/16 drive axle with the bell cut off. (see pics below) I used the SCT drive axles. Tony "SkipGear" has tried a frew different axles with other hexs to retreive width results for certain wheels. I am sure T-Bird will chime in on what he used.

After being cut and sanded


I modded the stock plastic hexes to xxx-s hex specs while I wait for mine to arrive. This allows use of the SCT rear wheels on all fours while keeping front width close to stock @ 293mm.

[LOSA9686] is the alm hexs I have ordered and made my plastics like.

Just slip some 3/8x3/16 bearing in the carrier and slide the axle in.

For the axle to clear the kingpin in the spindle you need to turn a recess into it. I just chucked it up in my drill and used a rats tail file. (see pic)

It doesn need much but placement is key.


Now you have to make sure the drive axle head is ground down like in my pics for clearnce. You will also need to take a small sanding drum on the dremmel and clearance the carrier to. Also have to grind some off to maintain stock steering throw.


now talking with SkipGear he has tried a few differnt axles. He did bK2 ones with standard sct hexes to use SCTE 4x4 wheels. But he found using xxx-t axles with xxx-s narrow hexes and Traxxas rear wheels made it not as wide and he thought the truck handled better this way.

Proline did come out with this kit but that's $30. I have $12 into this. $7.59 for the carriers and $4 for the bearings. The axle I just used old ones off my sct. So if you have these parts save yourself the change. If you have any questions feel free to ask, i am sure T-bird and Skip will have some insight aswell.

Thanks SkipGear for your information and letting me post this how to.

They need a CR version that uses the same principles as the AD2 wheels...same front and rear, but uses bearings in the front still.

God ThunderbirdJunkie would buy it. He would buy the HELL out of it without a second thought.

Hopefully Losi doesn't miss the boat on THIS short course truck.

Now you can upgrade using CR parts. This is the SCT that Losi shoulda built first.

OK, so one could spend $190 on a BND truck, and then $300 upgrading it to CR specs

Or Losi could just come out with a CR version for <$300

got the running gear here...don't need to spend $100 on shocks or $200 upgrading to other CR spec stuff

oh wait...how much is an XXX-T CR now? low 200s?

HMMMMMM...are all the replacement parts in stock at Horizon?

Just need bumpers, chassis, body mounts and front axles..
