I "upgraded" about a month ago. Glad I did because I was getting tired of chasing a good setup. I didn't want to have to buy saddle packs, or a clutch basket, and wow what a difference in maintenance. It takes much less time to wrench on the scte and it also has a more proven and intuitive design, just look at how easy it is to set mesh on the scte.

Tough to say if its done anything performance wise. I changed from a 2650 T8 to the Pro4 shortly after I got it so I have changed my setup a lot to account for the weight savings. Don't quite have it dialed in like I had before, but I am getting close. Also waiting on the longer chassis brace as well as the bump brace and will be messing with those to see what they do as well when they get in. (the bump brace was supposed to be mailed last week I think, but don't have it yet) Probably can't go wrong with any of the aftermarket chassis out now- the TLR, BCE, Bump, and SNR all have positives compared to stock.

I noticed they aren't really as heavy as I thought. Mine is all stock and weighed in at 6.55 pounds race ready. Not to bad.

Make sure the notches in the diff cross pins are lined up and the aluminum blocks are fully seated in the diff cup . It should be smooth and not binding .

It's not hard if you got the tools.
I made a 40t, 42t, 44t metal spur gears from day 1. I made them in plastic (left) metal (right).

OK. I know this has been asked 1000 times. But tring to search this thread is pretty useless. It jumps around totally random it seems. But what other bodies fit this car well. I ordered a proline flo-tek body and the way the roll bars are in the back really isn't very good for fitting the SCTE. Looking for something that is a sure thing fit. Don't want to drop more coin on something that doesn't work well.

I found where someone said the JC Truth body fits. Anything else? Thanks in advance.

Whats up Jeff ? I have tried theJC 79 Ford Ranger , the SC10 09 champ ed , and the Blitz body and all were wide enough in the rear for the bumper . The Manta was a little narrow but still fit . I am trying my bumper cut down and so far it does seem like the rear is taking less damage than with the sides of the bumper on . Or do you mean the molded roll bars on the bodies themselves ?

The molded roll cage is right where the rear body posts want to be to get the front end to line up and fit well. Can probably make it work, but less than ideal and dont really want to go thru the hassle of paining it if its not going to be right. Maybe I'll just do a one color wonder and use it for practice.

Just take off the little square swivel piece on the body mounts so the body will sit lower , I had to do that with my Flowtek body .
