cant deny the success of this truck so far, even with a few hiccups along the way.

100% correct, anyone with a machine shop can cut out a piece of
aluminum and call it a race chassis. Tim with all his years of R&D work
for many different R/C products will come up with dialed products every
time he builds something. Nothing he does is just a simple cut out and
call it good. The same goes for TLR they develope products with 100's
of hours of R&D work behind them, they don't just cut out a piece of
aluminum and call it good.Or use the public as paying guinea pigs and
just keep up grading as their customers do their R&D for them causing
their paying customers/guinea pigs to have to rebuy the latest up graded
doo dad they cut out again & again.

Not refering to anyone in perticular, I'm refering to the fact there are
great R&D manufacturing companies & there are machine shops cutting
out pieces of aluminum because they can and calling it good using the
customer for their R&D work. Just as was posted by DoogieLee. I was
just agreeing with him...

....wow!

What co. are you referring to? Who simply cuts out chassis' and calls them good?

No matter how much R&D is done and once a project is cleared for production, nothing will ever replace the test of time and public use/feedback.

Got my tenshock 4000

Runs perfect with my mmp as I assumed

Someone I know is running the 6 pole on a mmp and it works just fine too

Batteries are 4000 30c blue lipos and 5000 40c gens ace

Hitect servos no BEC

It's a tad faster than the 1410 but the castle runs cooler! Wtf

Ran 15t pinion no motor fan and it's 180 after close to ten min and my castle was at 165

Is everyone running alum. pivot blocks? I think that's what they are called...


I'm in socal and it's effing hot outside too

My uncle is making me a carbon fiber chassis too! He actually designs predator drones for the military and has a bunch of carbon supplies

I'm gona try to make towers too if there's enough!

If I didn't have dozens of 5mm pinions I'd surely try a Ofna Pinion tho.
If you have a nice selection of pinions I have a spare RCM reducer I can lend to try or until you get one. LMK fuzzlips?

Good deal Nick, glad there is no issues. You should post your ESC settings in the Tenshock thread, that might help some of the guys.

I'm running the aluminum pivot blocks, but use them in the stock positions so it's really not need for me. Out of the box has worked on everything I tried. They are nice if you do need to do adjustments.

Coming from me(I have helped develop several chassis for the AE and Losi Cars for BCE), there is nothing that goes straight to the public before its in the hands of capable pro drivers, especially the Losi SCT chassis. That chassis was with team members at the manufacturer shootout in Alabama(Gately tq'd with the BCE over all) long before it ever got tested with some of our local club racers(or before they even knew one existed), and is on most of the team drivers cars right now at the nats. There will always be running changes to all cars, and as far as the bce stuff goes, nobody ever pays to be a tester......

the pivot blocks (hinge pin holders) are nice. most use the stock settings up front (0 all around) and 2.5 or 3.0 in the rear (i use 2.5).

The BCE chassis has been awesome and Bill has been very, VERY helpful in producing another option. Just like Tim and Steve, they are all different options for all of us to run. If there is some massive design flaw then yes it should be addressed, but from what I have heard and seen with my own eyes the BCE chassis is a killer option and one I personally recommend.

Let's stop the chassis bickering and be thankful we have these guys in our corner making parts that are much needed.

I agree, Its all about having options, as a local club racer at heart, its neat to take a buch of upgrade parts and make a totally tricked out car

I to have a BCE chassis and In the few phone conversations I had with Bill he clearly is very passionate about his products and wants nothing but the best for his customers and yes customer feedback and R&D is 99% of what RC is all about.
I've ben so impressed with the BCE chassis I've converted my 810-E to another SCTE so I have one for indoor and one for outdoor racing. Bill has informed me of a couple small running changes and I'm sure it's all the better it'll be and I have nothing but confidence in any of his products

Some of these comments indirectly pointed at BCE are uncalled for are not only in bad taste but clearly being voiced by what sounds like a disgruntled old man with sand in his Vag ?

My 2cents


Heres my light weight indoor rig, enjoy all you haters
Yeah, I'm going to reposition the BEC.

Sorry, I wasnt trying to cause a $#itstorm about chassis, just voicing my opinion on the Bump chassis...
anyways, Lutz just TQ'd 4x4 SC and Dakotah and Truhe were 2nd and 3rd by mere seconds...

Losi is gonna have great showing come main time!
