so should we use shorter center diff screw for TLR chassis ???

Wow I can't believe my crappy lexan cover pic was used against the
TLR chassis FYI I got a chance to break in my new Losi metal at WCRC last night and I was really impressed. Noticed the weight reduction especially in flight and braking, and there was ZERO issues with dirt getting into the spur etc. I would highly recommend the TLR chassis to anyone who wants to loose some weight and look really good doing it

Agreed, I like to stay OEM myself unless absolutely necessary.

If you choose to not put in the plastic cover for the nitro holes and lower the center diff then yes you should use shorter screws. If you choose to keep the cover then use the stock screws. Your choice!

Like I said it was Shameless LOL I am running the TLR and it works awesome
I am using the brace from the rc8? Factory blue one!At the end that goes to the diff,I drill out the hole a little for more clearance and used a turn buckle rod end to mount it.You can uncrew the ends (one that comes with it as well)to get it to bolt in the extra motor mount screw hole!Fits perfect and works great!

no more or less shameless than ryan or casper telling us how super cool a new losi part is. just because this is the "official" losi SCTE thread doesn't mean they have exclusive rights to advertising in it.

Exactly . You can't get help from the pros on setup if your running a different chassis . I love all the hate on the tlr chassis just because there are nitro cut outs.

I don't think you have ever seen Ryan or me Bad mouth the BCE, bump or SNR chassis. Being involved with the development of the TLR chassis we are confident in it's performance though. Debunking perseved issues with cutouts in the chassis is part of selling the product. Many have had great luck with the BCE and it looks like a great chassis. We just feel there are features with the TLR that make is a little better.

Well, there are only so many colors of actual hard anodizing versus just regular anodizing. The HA bodies will be available soon enough but they will be the Losi standard HA color.

It allows the chassis to be used for those that want to run nitro SCT. All the parts exist to make the nitro verson. Why not make the chassis be able to do both. The stock Losi chassis does both! I agree this is the electric truck thread but having the holes makes the chassis more verstile down the road. Saves some weight as well.
