Is AE diff oil the same weight as Losi or is it a bit thicker like the shock oil?

The standoffs could be delrin or aluminum spacer blocks. Then you would have 2 or 4 of the stock stoppers to position the battery, same as it does now. 1 in front and 1 in back. The extra 2 could be side guides or you could just wrap the velcro straps around the plate and battery if you think it will hold well enough. The stoppers would need to be nutted on the bottom since there isnt any material to screw into. extend the length of the plate to mount the ESC and its done. Bling and probably a few ounces shaved off as a bonus.
To adjust your design a little, there are threaded standoffs you can use which would serve as a nut. Home Depot even has them.

A screw from the bottom would go through and existing hole in the chassis into the standoff a bit less than half way. Then a screw through a countersunk hole would go through the CF tray and into the other side of the threaded standoff.

Repeat that 4-5 times and you have your elevated battery tray.

A perfect standoff would look sort of like a spool for wire to keep everything from shifting, but I've never seen those..

Now that I designed it in my head, I need to go build one too.


Technically the tray could be at an angle so that the inside of the battery is closer to the chassis and lowers CG, but that'd be a lot trickier to mount.

Not sure on the diff oils. The shock oils are off 2.5wt I just can never remember which way since I never use AE oils.

instead carbon fiber, i used angle aluminum which i can mount the battery flat or vertical (CG closer to center)

Sorry but it just doesnt make any sense... If you spend about $100+ on lightening the losi to 6.2 lbs or lower why not buy an associated and save money??? Im not trying to start anything but this just doesnt make sense.. What are the MAJOR difference besides plastic vs. Aluminum

I do not think anyone in this thread wants to have to change a servo out in the 4x4 sc10 so they got the Losi!

The Losi is easy to tune, easy to work on not to mention durable and more traditional in it's design. Some people like light trucks for longer run time and more maneuverability. Personally, I've liked my truck with some heft. But since I've got 2 trucks, I'm going to build one to be as light as possible and the other to be slightly less than out of the box weight.

There's a tuning kit for the SCTE?

If you kiss ThunderbirdJunkie's butt hard enough, he can get you one by the end of the week for the XXX-SCT, he thinks.

So, in your mind the only difference between the two is weight? The two trucks couldn't be more different.

And a belt, and a clicker, and diffs that munch, and 48 pitch pinion/spur that likes to strip.

No thanks.
