Am I the only one that drank the Losi Kool Aid? I don't think anyone in here uses the Xcelorin 6000mah 60C packs. I'm gonna need to buy a couple of more packs soon and I'll have to consider some of the ones that were mentioned in the past few pages.

You speak the truth about some of these guys and you summed up this thread pretty well too. I will say that I learned allot from this thread too b4 I got my scte too, it has helped allot.
Now go enjoy that new truck your gonna love it and stay safe out there.

The same questions have been asked and answered so many times I don't know how some of you keep up.

One thing I have notice is that it has confirmed who knows what they are talking about and who just likes to be a negative Nancy. I also can tell that even if he changes his name to "Losi_Sucks", Stone_Racing just loves the sounds of his own whine. Get a grip troop (or should I say ex-troop), I may not be a marine but I am a serving soldier in my own country who just got back from a desert where lots of real shit happened. People like you just give the rest of us a bad name.

As for some of the other negative comments, my opinion is that this was released as a Losi kit for a reason. For the price point we should all realize this is not manufactured to be a racer, it's just a fun truck. Race it if you want but cosidering the costs of it's competition I'm not suprised we have to spend more money to get it up to snuff. Don't talk about the p**s either, they are just one of the costs of early adoption. If this were a $500 TLR kit we could have higher expectations and rightly so but it just isn't the case.

I bought my truck off of Steve at STRC from his Garage sale and saved a few pennies, but it's brand new never run. Should haul with the SC8 and 1410 I have ready for it. Either way I'm gonna finish oredring my parts and set it all up. Should be a blast to drive.

I'm sure I'll get flamed now, do your worst cause if you're not shooting at me or planting bombs in my roads it ain't gonna bother me in the slightest

P.S. Hacker07 is the KING, never seen CS like this in my life. I believe he really cares about his work and his customers and it shows!! I will continue to buy more Losi Stuff in the future. Prolly gonna get a 8ight-T roller for an SCT conversion now instead of an SC8e.

To the guy who recommended the hobbywing 120A ESC a page or two back, I heartily concur. Mine has been rock solid and I get 10 minutes with my 1410 3800kv castle motor with my 6000 Xcelorin 2S lipo with at least a thousand mAh to spare. In fact, the most I have ever put back in after a main has been around 4500 mAh.

What impresses me is how well this truck runs in videos and the kinds of wins it is taking in regular drivers' hands.

I can't wait to try mine out. Hopefully I can get to a track this summer once it is set up so I can see first hand.

Is that back on track?

I raced mine stock for awhile b4 changing much on it and the truck drove great for me. Then I decided to start tweaking it for a outdoor event and it was still great.

Default Diff Removal

I've searched until my eyes are buggin, but can't find the post where someone described the steps to remove the front & rear diffs. If I start just tearing down the entire front/rear until that diff comes out, I will have removed things I didn't need to. The center one is a piece of cake, but serious steps are necessary to get the front/rear ones out.
Can anyone tell me the post # or page # where someone so graciously explained what needs to be dissassembled to get the diffs out?
I've Searched for "diff repair, diff removal, remove differential" etc, but no luck.

It's pretty simple, rear diff is held on the bottom of the chassis with 4 screws and the chassis brace. The front is pretty much the same. Just start tearing them down and you'll get familiar with it after one time.

Front diff..
  • remove front bumper 4 screws, loosen the back two chassis screws about 1/2 way out
  • remove the front two top plate screws and the bracket btw the diff and the top plate (don't touch the other three screws)
  • remove the top two diff housing screws
  • remove the bottom two diff housing screws
  • remove or loosen the sway bar screws
  • pop off the front diff cover do work and re-install

Rear diff..
  • remove the back bumper 4 screws
  • loosen the front two rear chassis screws (1/2 way)
  • remove the top two diff case screws
  • remove or loosen the sway bar screws
  • pop off the rear diff cover do work and re-install

Thx guys.
8ight's instructions are great but if this is your first time I would recommend just taking the front and rear "clips" off the chassis. Don't just loosen the back screws but remove them and you get to hold the entire front or rear end of the car. Take your time and tear into it and take the car apart. It is not a bad idea to see how it all goes together so you can see how to fix things in the future and identify all the parts.

Good luck and have some fun!
