Does the new TLR chassis require the use of those plastic hole plugs and diff spacers like the stock chassis? Or does it just get rid of all of that like the BCE? I am running the BCE and really prefer the simplicity of being able to get rid of those extra parts. Not to mention the additional weight savings.

You can run it without as it has the hole for the spur to fit down in the chassis. However our chassis still has the opening for the gas stuff if people want to run nitro with this.

A lot of it has to do with your battery and motor choices, There's a huge disparity in weight amongst battery packs in the 6000mah range as well as a huge weight difference between the Tenshock/castle 4 pole motors and the beastly 550 can motors.

With a battery in the 315 gram range, and a smaller 4 pole motor, all you really need to do to get to 6.2 lbs is remove plastic thats not needed...like most of the battery tray, most of the radio tray, most of the rear bumper, etc.

I couldn't agree more so I use this site http://www.rcweights.com/ to help keep track of components and their weights. It saves time and money when being weight conscious. Add any additional info you might have, it helps to have it all in one place.

Anyone vent their bodies for ESC and motor cooling? Where's the most effective place to cut to keep things cool under the lid?

But this is the Losi thread......so no more on the matter in here.

The AE SC10 4x4 is a 25 year old design so it did not take much R&D to
build it. Heres a link to the 25 year old AE/MIP 4x4.

Ryan, a few weeks back you posted you were waiting for the new flex
chassis to be done with the holes filled like Bill's chassis. Now I see you
say the new chassis has the holes.

Why is this? I understand chassis's and flex angles better then most R/C
racers or most R/C aftermarket companies do,due to I use to manufacture
my own R/C cars back in the 80's and I've built many full size race car
chassis's as well as many hand built road race & drag race motorcycle
chassis's that have all been big time winners.

Is the reason for your change (Losi/Horizon bean counters?) or is it to get
the flex & flex angles correct? The reason I ask is I've seen some BCE
chassis's race at tracks I race at and I don't see a whole lot of advantage
to them over my stock SCTE chassis with my motor & center diff lowered.
I would like to get some advantage from spending money on a chassis. I
don't want to spend my money on something that is only equal to what
I'm already racing with. To stiff is a bad thing,to much flex is a bad thing,
the flex at wrong angles is even worse then all the above.

Thanks for your help with this as always Ryan.

Chuck, I may have mispoken but we have always had the holes in the chassis just like stock. Maybe I was answering what I thought about the BCE chassis or something. What we were waiting on was getting the milling below the spur so we could direct mount the center diff if we choose to as well. thats all.

See, we have many consumers that have converted this truck to nitro as well and love it so we couldnt just say sorry guys when we release the new chassis so thats why the holes have always been in the chassis for our testing.

What we have tried is a WHOLE bunch of milling options to get it to flex where we want it to.

The new TLR chassis also gives you an option for the stock rear chassis brace or a longer strut type chassis brace so you have some tuning options for the rear flex of the truck.

Question, how does a stiffer chassis or less rear flex affect the handling of the truck? What are the benefits?
