I am getting into SCT due to it being so big at my track right now, i got the AE truck but i saw a guy at my track with the new Losi truck and he has never looked good racing but was flat out flying with this truck. So I am thinking I want to send the AE back and get this truck. I already see there is a ton of hop ups for it, is there anything that is a must have right away? I noticed on the toe blocks on this guys at the track the plastic was already pulling out or flexing, so that seems pretty much a must there. Thanks for any info.

The discharge function can be used mainly for cycling packs when new. Most lipos dont hit their stride until 10th cycle. Sometimes you need to discharge the pack down.

You will want to use dean's. One, they are very efficient. Two, 85% of people use deans so if you ever need one to re-solder at track or use somebody else's battery in an emergency situation you are good to go.

I've got ec5's on another truck but that's a different story. I thought the ec5 were the most efficient connector u could use, if u had to use a connector?

But I didn't know if the ec5 was overkill and maybe the ec4 would be better?

You can never have too big of a connector IMO , the EC5 connector is the perfect choice IMO as these heavier cars can pull a lot of juice . If space under the body were a concern then a smaller connector might be needed but there is plenty of room under an SCT's shell .

I've been running solid bullets straight to the battery.

DO NOT use the cheap bullets on these trucks though. They don't hold their spring tension for long and then they will cause problems.

I got this bad boy down to 5 pounds with everything. IS THAT GOOD ? EC5's on the plug unless you plugging your wires to the battery like mine.. The BEC chassis is the ticket for those that like great flex and longevity. bill has added a screw hole to the bottom for long or short brace bars. the associated buggy brace is a direct bolt on. with only a slight grinding next to the transfer case to fit the hole..

The new hard ball kit is very nice to have in the kit to get that new tight feel back. Since the ball kit didnt come with the steering ones I got the HD 8 steering arm and its the same sixe as the stock one Losa6045 is the #. I also got rid of the blue shock bodies and put on losis new bodies.

4mm solid connectors direct to the batteries, no intermediate connectors.

Any info on this would help. I had the same issue. I just spent the five.
