I can't keep up with this thread fast enough. Every time I come here to get the latest scoop, 10-15 pages have been added.

The fact that this thread is always at the top of the list is a direct testament to how popular and to what a great truck this thing is.

The amount of aftermarket interests in this truck is freakin' great IMHO. All of the chassis choices are wonderful and they remind of back in the day when everyone raced RC10 gold tubs......and everyone of them were different....all because of all of the aftermarket chassises and accessories that were available for them.

To all of the aftermarket manufactures......keep bringin' me choices.

Wrenchin' on and making my vehichles stand out from all of the rest is just as much a part of this hobby to me as racin' is.....if not even more so.

I'm luvin' me some Losi.

At least that way you cant skooled LOL. Cant wait to get all of us out at LP again now that we all have the same SC truck. Are you gonna pick up a 1410 3800kv? If so get one on Ebay they are 60 bux still.
I'm definitely going to a 2S setup. Thinking sensored setup right now. Castle 3800 isn't out of the question though.

I definitely like what I hear about the 10R and programmability with the Progauge. What batteries are you running with it?

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......
im with you on this one miller, sadly that seems to be the new trend now days.

not too bad if you ask me for being in the nats with the factory pro guys

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
yeah ever since i got in here he's been posting the same over and over and over. he needs to build a bridge and get over it that if if he can

do you mind sharing where you got those shock socks? are they good or bad?

I think all shock socks do is trap dirt and bind up the spring , worse idea than the rubber boots IMO .

cool they were teknos right? yea if you dont mind post it here or pm me. i just want to see how taller they sit over the stock ones as there isnt enough room for the velcro to sit properly when i use the losi 810 body as a mud guard.
