Interesting. I thought the gold(stiff) optional springs are still on the soft side in the front on my identical conversion.....I would like some a stage stiffer actually.

Is that a LRP SXX TC ESC? If so,does it work O.K. with that 550 motor?

Thanks,

I think you should be able to use most higher end 10th scale ESC's with the 550 motors. As long as they have a good amp rating and you will want to use a fan on it. The Xcelorin 10th scale speedo works was well. Again with the higher amp draw you most definitely want to run a fan in most cases.

Is the 6.75LB running weight with a novak 550 motor? If it is, since the tekin motor is lighter you would drop some weight off the truck in that aspect. Dare I say a 6lb race weight is possible if you watch what electronics you run, carbon towers and a few other mods?

i think the lighter you go with these trucks the worse off you are, the body will act more like a scoop and fly terrible

I have to agree that my truck also feels soft in the front. The back feels perfect though.

I have been running a LRP TC spec in my trucks and it has been working great.

I would disagree. You can easily trim the body to let it fly just fine.

The weight of the Losi is to high for me to be interested. My Hyper weighs in at 5.25lbs as it sits on the track ready to run. It jumps and handles very well. I have even had it on some very large jumps(30') and it flies very well.

+1 on a stiffer spring. I have the golds on mine and I am almost out of threads on the shocks to get ride hight right.

Good to know, those wheels will be the first thing I change. They just look cheap and toyish to me. The tires look pretty nice though.

I am very excited about this truck. This is the truck I have been waiting for to jump into 4wd SCT. I did purchase a Slash Roller, to learn on and work out the electronics for this truck. I had converted my XXX-T late last year and love it so much I am not going to get XXX-SCT....yet. I love the ten-t platform and thought that it would make a great truck, so why not convert one of those also. I have been talking with some of the guys (thanks soup) about converting the ten-t, doing research, and was ready to pull the trigger. But not any more.

Thanks Losi, I am a loyal customer for many years. Even through the Strike, which I have tweaked till I love it. I still race it in the spec class, and will continue to do so.

I think the 4wd market is now going to explode. Not that this truck will take over (there are too many variables...like...oh, let me see...THE DRIVER). But that the bigger companies, with the larger R&D and marketing dollars will bring better product (with better support and more value). To this point I just didn't think that the current offerings were quite there yet.

Thanks Losi.

All that stuff is the same. Its chassis, motor mount, rear DS, bumpers, body mounts, and axles(you can make the ten-T axles work) that is different.
