I personally think the BCE chassis is the better designed piece. I like the hard anodizing on the losi chassis, but that will start looking shabby after the first race or two, and the unneeded holes will always make it look like the bastard child of a Nitro.

The BCE chassis also, at this point, is a proven performance enhancer while the Losi chassis is still a big ?
i agree. i don't know why they would leave that there (nitro holes). honestly i don't know why it's there on the regular chassis. how hard is it to get rid of it when you change the mold to make it longer anyway?

i didn't realize TLR was going to do that. BCE for me...

Why didn't anyone say anything when Hacker/Ryan specifically made a post on here to ask what changes we'd want to see to the chassis?

I asked about pre-tapped holes for droop screws and he said they'd be in the chassis. Note that the holes don't show in the referenced pictures, so I would think the picture is not the production chassis.

Reach out to Hacker and send him your suggestion to remove those holes, or... hopefully he'll read these messages and it isn't too late.

I believe that was mentioned when the truck was first released, and when the pics of the TLR chassis were released. I think you should go back and read all 1030 pages of this thread to be certain though

Touche!

But HECK NO. Guess what they replaced water boarding with? That's right. All those people now have to read every post in this message thread. And now I hear the prisoners are calling to bring the water boarding back.

Repeated for what it's worth. Although I don't know if pocketing means the hole with a plastic recessed filler (I would think this is the case), or if the chassis is milled differently..

I think Tony's Hobbies had one. I saw one there last week when I was there so you might want to give them a call

It is far too narrow minded to thing there will not be a nitro SCT. Not saying it is coming but also would not say it is out of the realm of possibility. A single common chassis is not a bad idea if that is the case.

A nitro SCT would be sick for those that like that type of thing!

That would be called 8th scale

No offense, but I think a nitro SCTE, SCTN, or whatever, would be a complete flop. If Nitro SCT was going to catch on, the SC8 would have flown off the shelves as it was a great truck for outdoor tracks.....but it's dead in the water. Furthermore, there's already PLENTY of SCT classes at the track, and bashers have been ditching nitro and going brushless en mass. Either way, it's still catering to the few in spite of the majority.....how hard can it be to remove those holes from the punch out press and just have two "proper" parts for the respective vehicles?

I believe they left it there for more parts compatability for the three platforms ( TEn, 810, and SCTE).. so its easier to find said parts when your looking for it. So the TLR chassis may be made for all three said platforms to use.

naw, it's ok. if losi wants to cater to the 6 people that want to convert it to nitro, that's fine by me. i'll spend my money with BCE...

I'd rather better diffs than an option chassis.

my old ten-t diffs with chris pins (and other APE goodies) have been solid (aside from leaking), so for me.....give me the chassis.
