Thanks for all of the great ideas guys. I'll have a few tricks to try out this weekend.
i like the rebars on the big track. i have mixed and matched and found that slightly worn rebars on the front with new ones on back is a nice combo.

I have my indoor SCTE down to 5lb 8.6oz race ready

Chrisatabery. here in oregon where i'm at. I have been running 3 different tracks, all different. all loose, lomey, & wet, big track huge jumps. you can see them on northwest tracks here or facebook.. santiam, medford, bend, my set ups for loose are...caliber tire's rear to gridirons super soft front adjustable shims for arms front and rear front at o's.... front o front back 2.5 rear rear. orange springs front,. black rear, drupe at 93 mm front 103 rear with 20 oil front 25 rear,,top out side shock mount,. arms out side, front end shock mount I have 4 adjustments on cf towers and am @ 3 top, arms inside.. running a grease in all my difs. I am using pro long oil mix and grease together after gluing all my diffs. Been running 4 poll tekin rx8 14 and 13 pin. 4600. 6200 mah 60C pro match. 2 cell. 0 timing. tame as it can get to on the speed control. you know how the boys say at losi it gets better after its run and loose. make sure your arms are loose..... also running large 2.5 say bar in front and 1.5 rear...for any body else this is my set up and it works for me. the only thing I change from track to track is shock oils' Tires... try it you might like it.. Now if I could last a race without burning up my electronics,... I would be first not 2nd in points...

Default CENTER DRIVE PIN RETAINING RINGS



GUYS ,
I have been made aware that the center drive pins are wearing through the
plastic covers.
This was the same problem we had on the Losi 1.0 model.
This simple fix worked great and was very reliable.
simply remove the plastic cover.
slide the ring over the retaining pin.
cut the schrink wrap to cover both the front pin and the set screw.
this will retain the ring and the drive set screw.
Simple and effective.
part no. M2C7111
replacement schrink wrap part no. 6076

and only $14.98, nice! Comes with the shrink wrap or no? Can't find it separately on your sight. Also it's the losi SCTE, not the SCT10, might want to change that.

Use all of the lubes mentioned above for their intended uses and throw the boots in the trash.
