SNR - Carbon Fiber

Losi TLR Chassis - Aluminum

The best IMO all of them, these are great options. I run the BCE and love it.

I guess I am curious what you all are referencing...if it is the updated set screwed coupler, that is a part update. Soemthing you buy once the old one wears out. Not soemthing you call CS about. The original works great, these just work better. I have informed CS that this is NOT a CS issue.

With the originals, if you grease them properly and space them out on the shaft far enough for them not to bind as recommended here numerous times, they last for 6 months or more. Its the moment they bind when rotating the drive shaft at that front angle that you have a problem and that comes from pushing it too far onto the pinion shaft.

Also, if you spit the pin through the plastic, you can simply dremel a new notch for the set screw in the plastic and rotate it and good as new.

I run the BCE. Made right here in the Ol' US of A. I know, I know, who cares blah blah. I do though. I try to help out our guys working hard to provide us with new upgrades for our toys. I also found out that the Bump chassis is made in sunny socal (at least that's what Nitrohouse told me).

Who has a picture of the BCE chassis and how much are they? Is there still a wait on BCE chassis? I know it used to be a bit of a task to obtain one but I know they have always been of great quality.

Same here, this chassis rocks! Bill is an awesome guy to talk to and its really cool how he asks us club racers or pretty good racers about what we like and dislike about the chassis. BCE +1000 forsure

And I should mention I have not ran the SNR, TLR or Bump so I can not speak for those. But I trust the members here and we get good feedback on all the stuff made for the SCTe, feedback has been great for all of them.

Speed Passions V10 and the Fusion 3's have the same issue. I left the lip and mounted them. Just make sure it's even.

How is the handeling of each chassis stock vs any flex or machined out. Beside it being lighter. I know when I ran buggy the losi 2.0 rtr (just like scte stock) then upgraded to new chassis flex I couldn't really tell a differeance. But that was outdoor med bit track. Been thinking about getting one. But not sold on it yet

No answers? I have already emailed Losi support twice with no answer so am at wit's end

I have checked they are 1/2" long, and LOSA6271 is listed as 5-40 x 1/2 Flat Head Screws. So my LHS didn't have the Losi version and I ordered the AE equivalent size, but it turns out they are too narrow in diameter - they are the same diameter as the silver screws that keep the side guards in.

Any other ideas as to the screw size? Sorry, but we use metric, so I don't even know what the 5-40 stands for...

No other flat head screw in the spare parts list is 1/2" long...
