thanks hacker.

ill check clearance when i fit it tonight. i notice you guys are all running either 5,3,2 or 3,3,2 in the diffs. i am running on a high bite track that grooves up fast. i ran 5,5,1 in my hyper. i really like the way it felt but would like to know if running 3 in the center will be better for this truck?

Play with it and find something you like. We have run from 10-3 in the center and we are all running 3 right now. I am going to go back to 5 in the center to see how it feels on our track as it has really grooved up. We will see how it goes.

well i guess i am going to try my normal setup to start. 35wt front 32.5 wt rear and 5,5,1 diffs, 1 deg toe out and -1 camber. should be a good starting point!

That first lap or two was a bit rough, but then he settled into a very good pace and easily pulled away. I'm looking forward to seeing the Losi and AE battle. Was it just me or did it seem that most trucks lipos were dumping a bit before the end of the race?

10 min on a track that big had to be brutal for the batteries.

Casper,
Are you running 3 in the center for more forward traction on a slippery surface or to free up the rear off-power for more cornering traction?

I've been running 5/5/2 in my 810e on a high bite indoor clay track. I've been thinking of going to 5/7/2 for more forward punch when passing or jumping the triple from the inside. I'm using a lot of the Hacker07 indoor setup, but don't have the silver rear springs yet (coming this week). I'm thinking the buggy body and rear wing are giving me a lot more cornering traction than the SC body, as my car was very good even with the stock setup.

sooooo how different if ofna's diff fluid from Losi's..
im running 50,000 wt in the center diff of my slash 4x4 30,000 in the front and 10,000 in the rear
is it anywhere near comparable to losi fluid
as in mine being 3, 5, 1
or is mine more like
30 50 10 in comparison to losi fliuid.
or are you even using Losi fluid?
too many brands and NO standards of any sort but thats ok its all about what u know and asking good questions...
i know the 50.000 wt is like thick syrup in the cold of winter

As far as I know they are standardized. When the guys say 3,5,1 they are talking about 3k, 5k, 1k. that's a far cry from the 30k, 50k and 10k you are running in the slash 4x4. But the reason for the drastic differences between what is used in the two trucks is losi uses a 4 gear system vs. the 2 gear of the traxxas so a lighter fluid can be used in the losi.

I bought a Trinity Team Epic short course 4.5t to put in my truck. The end bell has a ring around it that is .450". The hole in the motor mount is .432". Would it be better to drill out the motor mount or grind down the ring on the motor?

Thanks,
Mitten

We have all gone down to 3 and like it a lot. I can't honestly say why it works. Traditional wisdom with diffs say 3 is better for slick or added cornering like you mentioned. The lower center diff seems to help calm down the rear end some on this truck. I have some other therories but need to do some other testing to figure some stuff out. 3 in the center seems to work really well for a super stable car though. I have changed some stuff around though and want to go up in center again to see how I like it.

The traxxas uses super thick fluids for some reason. Never investigated why or know much more about that truck other then they use crazy thick fluids!

We are using 2,3,5,7,10 range of fluids in our cars. I don't see going above 10 too often but we will see how things evlove with the car.

I would say you are better opening up the mount then trying to do anything to the motor.

I think it would be way easier opening the hole in the mount then trying to grind on the motor case. That is just me though.

If you have a drill press then drill the mount. If not, just use a sanding drum in a Dremel tool to open the mount.

I was just at the track here in Scottsdale, Az and the Losi guys were there. Yet again, impressed w/ the kindness the Losi crew shows, they let me fondle the new 4x4 sc. Just a bunch of top notch guys.

What I came away with is how solid this truck is. It is amazing how much heft they put in a 1/10 car. I drive a slayer which I thing is pretty solid, the SCTE is even more so. Thanks Losi!
