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.
I'll be one that doesn't agree with your formula to "WINNING". The BCE chassis is great quality and fine for smaller tracks imo, but I race on a large 1/8 scale track and I've found the weight balance of the BCE chassis to be worse than the stock chassis. The area the BCE lost the most weight was in the rear due to the cut outs but, at least in the first revision, and no adjustments were made to help correct the f/r balance. Even w/ the lipo all the way back it wasn't enough to feel better than the stock over these larger jumps. I did pass this info on to Bill, in hopes of some tweaks down the road.



As it stands I sold my BCE, and my bills are going to the lightened losi as it releases.. though I'm in no hurry my season is ending this week for outdoor racing The new losi chassis seems to follow basic weight distribution better and shouldn't contribute to the front end dipping off large, long jumps. Guess time will tell

also I want to know where I can get the stock diff grease? anyone at losi know where I can get some?

Mr.juarez;9609931]its eight-e friend i believe that was selling it, not sure if he still is.
jmc23 was selling some.. have to ask him if he has extra to sell.


Wow been a while since I've been on here..

I skimmed a bunch of what I missed and I will say the new springs have one HUGE plus that really isn't mentioned enough... THEY FIT PROPERLY, far less drag on the body vs the original sets. They just have a better clearance, so if you are debating on getting them, do it.

sorry to hear that, if you thought the weight that was takin off the rear was to much, why not buy these and place them towards the rear of the chassis/truck?

No ,Steve you have to use a Hotwire to customize the LVC.If you ask around you can usually find someone with one at the track or hobby store.Around here most Peeps run the rs in 1/10 scale truck and buggy,so there is one to be found.What I don't like about the RX8 is that the default setting is LVC off!!!!You have to turn it on!!!

I was able to drive this truck Friday night. My first thought was steering was very twitchy. But after a few laps I really was liking it. Flew level and felt like it was glued to the track. IMO it worked very well in the 5 mins or so I drove it.

If I remember correctly, there was a change to the diff gears. Are these the most recent ones? Or is it like other running changes in that you may or may not get the most recent diff gears out?

Stupid question about RX8 in my hotwire I can adjust the LVC to like 3.0v 3.1v so on and so forth..

If I'm running 2s I should set it to say 6.8v or so right?? I don't think the RX8 will judge by individual cell when you custom set it??

I've had mine set @ 6.8v and it's been fine get about 12-15mins out of it.. I'm just wondering if someone might get steered wrong here if they set theirs to 3.4v and it actually runs their 2s down to 3.4v before it hits cut off

The newer diff gears will start with the scte RTR, last I heard they will be available around the time the RTR will be out. Ryan will be able to have some more info on this.

I've got one. I'm in the middle of putting the truck back together after the chassis (and a few other upgrades) install. I'll try to take some pics tonight.

I have had very good luck with the Orions as well. I also got a couple of Gens Aces, how can you not try them for the price , right? I am finding the saddles are heating up quite a bit during a good run. My Max Amps and Orions never really even feel warm.
