Yup! For you it`s just playin and tinkering then? I do machining for a living and just like a mechanic, all the cars he works on are dialed an his is a heap to get him to work LOL Every one is like bro you could make this and that ,but at the end of the day don't even want to look at a machine .. Do want to mill a chassis from scratch some day just to do it,from a solid so the kick up and side kicks are milled in and not stamped..Just for tinkering sake !.Cheers!

how long did you run that 16 tooth in it and have you had that problem at all??
still wondering what went wrong
Been running 16t for 2 months now on 2cell. I have enough power everywhere with this heavy scte but could use more top end on the 120ft straight. Motor temps 160 esc 120. Never had any problem with connectors or wires.

Yep,
Got 3 of these and they are great.
Although they are 2P (balancing is not as precise as 1P), they are screaming on my MMP 1415/2400Kv.
Looking into 3s now, what would you recommend with MMP 1415/2400Kv?
Have a good WE,
V

Default Lightening scte

So would it be fair to say that most people that race the truck have lightened it up? And to the people that have lightened it up are not disappointed in the outcome as far as performance.

Thanks, yes I've tried the shock positions, it helped but still not where I want it, did the emulsion shocks last night, and going to shorten the wheelbase.... I think I might have dialed out too much brake, and I'm just coming in way to hot into the corner.....

On another note, continued my center diff noise hunt, I still can't figure out what it is, I thought it was the spur-changed-still noisy, swapped the robinson pinion-still noisy, diff gears brand new, bearings in good condition......played with mesh and nothing....

Shorter wheel base will give less on power steering because u have more weight transfer to rear of truck but, shorter wheel base will turn sharper.

yes, my problem is not on power steering, it's off power push.....

BBQ are you sure it's not the normal SCTE noise? If you're trying to get it to sound like your old SC10, it's not gonna happen, lol. You should hear mine, I bet it's a lot louder than yours, lol.

I went from 7 in the front to 5-it helped-, lighter front sway bar to no sway bar front-helped, and yes the biggest difference I noticed was tires, rebars and anything similar pushed too much, went to grid irons much better, but still pushes....

black or blue springs up front run #3 piston 30wt rear #4 piston 30wt orange full droop with 2 turns on shock all the way around. try shorting the rear camber link in rear. battery back diffs 3-7-2 that pretty much my setup and i have ton on steering. I use arron lanes setup and change some stuff.

Yup got the Engineering background and Solidworks (been using solidworks and AutoCAD since I was in high school over 10 years ago) I make a lot of parts just for the fun of it, I normally have more time and money put into the part by the time it works then if I just got an aftermarket part, but then you canít say I made that when someone asks where you got it from or who makes that part

I wonít be milling the chassis until I have a replacement already, at which point if the stocker folds up after I mill it ... no harm done. The machining side is still somewhat new to me however I have a great group of machinist at work that have been teaching me a lot (give me a hard time when I come away from the computer with a design sometimes lol I have learned simple is better )

Just got done testing a rear shock tower on my scte last night, 3rd go around but think I got it right this time. Weighs in at about the same as stock but much more durable. I donít run on small indoor tracks so keeping some parts stock weight is no big deal ..... Iím just not a fan of CF .... had to many parts snap back when I raced my b4 and t4, staying of the pipe and not hitting walls does help tho

How are the Nano-Tech hardcase batteries ????

I currently run the 2s 35c-7
0c and the 45-90c Non Hardcase batteries and after 10 cycle's they run like a dream and Balance great.

I always thought 2s2p meant 2 cells 2 parallel which would be 4 cells. And 2s1p would be 2 cells correct me someone,


I'm also going to drive my brand new Losi I've been waiting to drive for 2 weeks, it's brand new with the TLR Kit installed and the Racing springs, Black in Front, Orange in the Rear setup like the Aron Lane but havent messed with the diff's yet. I'll report back on how this beast goes
