Has anyone considered just regular old moly based grease for auto? Moly fills in the small imperfections in the surfaces of metals and drastically increases metal to metal wear characteristics. Does the factory stuff have any moly in it?

Cant wait to get the bce chassis again. Coming back from driving the dingo and doing wayyy better, raced tonight at SDRC against Patrick See (losi) and Jayson Pang (kyosho) and was in second behind pang and then my red wire to my on/off switch ripped off and my truck turned off. Sucked but was keeping up with them with the 2nd night in my scte after running a durango for awhile.

also I want to know where I can get the stock diff grease? anyone at losi know where I can get some?
What was the kyosho driver running in the 4x4 SC class???

A prototype of some sort or another brand?

Some days we would all go down to Del Mar when it was open and skate all day...Tony, Steve Steadham, Tony Hawk, Caballero, Hosoi....it was a who's who of dudes.

It was truly a blast...

Good stuff. Have a few packs that have been charged hundreds of times over the last 18 months and still very solid.

Agreed, bought a couple a month ago. They have been solid. They only had the prewired ones when I purchased.

I'm still considering pre-wired.. I would like to just hook the bullets directly to battery from the esc but my only issue is my oldest son is 5 and likes to help motivate dad by going to the garage and hooking up all our rc batteries and getting our remotes turned on ect.. and I really don't want him reversing the polarity and hurting hisself or my stuff.. I'm sure if I got it setup and explained it to him on what to do it wouldn't be an issue but the thought has crossed my mind for a reason
