Yes i did move the rear shock bottoms into the middle hole and it did help some. It just doesnt seem to have the turn in it did on the outdoor looser track im used to runnin. I am runnin 5k fr diff oil still. Should goin to 3k give me some more steering? I have a cpl other tires im gonna try yet too

Lighter diffs mean more steering. We where always working on getting the rear end stable as the truck had so much steering built in. You can try the 3-3-2 setup but it will take away fwd bite. This is a great rough track setup but can make the truck twitchy and inconsistant on med to high bite.

many more people here are thrilled with the performance of the BCE chassis in spite of the 3 pounds bill removed from the back of the chassis that completely destroys it's flight characteristics
sorry just raised a little concern, normally I run on big 1/8 scale track, I'm in the market for a chassis want to find out as much as I can about all the options out there before I commit to one, right now it's between BCE, BUMP, and the TLR chassis, carbon fiber is not an option for me right now, maybe when indoor comes around.

I dont know that many would feel the weight difference in how it was removed more so than how the chassis flexes, just my thoughts.
thanks for the help ryan,I appreciate it.
Maybe I shouldn't let the one guy rattle my cage, just looking for the chassis that will suit my driving style the best. thanks again

I was thinking of switching over to the "Lane" set up. Guess I will stay with what I have. Did you ever try 5k 7k 3k last indoor season? With the new springs now available, shock pistons, and sway bar tweaks, I think the truck will be perfect.

Do you recommend running the longer rear brace? Is it just to make the truck stiffer? Thanks.

I am going to pick one of these SCTE up this friday from a hobby shop but I want to know how to tell if the SCTE is from the first batch or not. Is there a way to tell? Thanks!

mate everyone can assure you there is no early shipment models left you will have a 3rd shipment for sure buddy

open the box and look for the sticker on the drive shaft side of the battery tray and you will see some numbers followed by either A or AA

A = 2nd shipments
and
AA = 3rd shipments

happy driving once you get it mate

i just got my bce chassis from prob that same seller on ebay, i got it like 4 days ago. i checked it over real good , and everything fit real nice and snug. very nice chassis, i raced it on sun and took 3rd in the amain, it was the first time running that chassis, first time racing the truck in about a month and a half, and a new track layout at my local track. all in all i think i did pretty good, but yea the bce chassis off ebay was flawless. bill makes a damn nice chassis.
