What speedo?

15-16 range for RX8. Might go a little higher for an ESC that does not have any timing advance.

You should be pretty safe in the 15-16 range. No need to run a lot of boost or anything. Motor shoudl run pretty strong without them.

Shoo goo is pretty messy. IMHO a balloon works nicely.

I would use the front aluminum brace and the longer rear plastic brace. That seems to be a great combo with the BCE chassis.

I have the 4600 in mine. Runs really strong. Hightly recommend these little motors. I have not tried a 4000 yet but 15-16 should be a good starting point based on my 13 gearing with the 4600

Default Chassis woes

Anyone who has yet to make a decision on which chassis to purchase as an alternate to the lousy stock piece should consider the BCE as a top choice. I still see people here crying after purchasing the SNR carbon fiber chassis which IMHO is not the best option. I do have several SNR carbon pieces on my build but think the chassis for this application is just not the way to go. No disrespect to Steve at SNR in any way. For the rigors of racing, wear characteristics, holding a tune, and just about anything else you could think of the BCE will come out on top. The only advantage to the SNR chassis is being lighter. However only to a slight degree and personally I think it moves the CG up higher in the truck to a fault. The weight reduction of the BCE is more than adequate. I mean the SCTE was designed to be a heavier option than all the others in the SC class in the first place for a reason. Going for an all out light weight SCTE just doesnt make sense for the majority of applications. Anyway without rambling any further.

BUY THE BCE CHASSIS FTW

You have now posted this a couple times...we get how you feel. There are a lot of good choices out there. I will stick with my TLR tested and tried and tuned NATIONAL CHAMPION winning chassis myself.

The hole is just a vent. you can always poke another hole in the other side but probably not needed. If you run closed cell foams it is a good idea to vent the tire as well.

Default Diff Question

I'm a new guy so sorry if this is a real basic question. I Just started racing with my Son at the local track with our SCTE's, and was wondering when you all talk about changing out diff fluid and say 5-3-3 or whatever...what is the format Rear-Center-Front, Center-Front-Rear?...I'm clueless....thanks!
