Easy to drive, tough as nails, low cost. I was the one who finished 4th in the series (behind 2 high-profile Losi drivers and a Kyosho Team driver) and I ran the stock shocks, gear diff, right out of the box other than the body.

I honestly doubt that Losi will tool up a 22SCT, many of those who got into racing in the 2wdSCT class have moved on to Arena Truck or 2wd Buggy, and IMO the class is on it's way out.

If the 22sct gets beat to production by the DESC210 though, I might jump ship The xxx series was nice...like 10 years ago, lol.
Hey Ridley, I'll buy it for $100 and will pay shipping on top of that. I need to get another truck to run at Motorama. Shoot me a PM if you're interested in unloading.

yes you r right but i didnt know they had that one and this one doest show that is has a burst rate do you know if it does?or is it 60c all the time
That I'm not sure of, but I'm sure one of their drivers in this thread can answer that. If I had to guess I would say it bursts at 120C since it seems almost everything will handle double it's constant as a burst as far as ESC and Batteries are concerned.

I'd much rather have a 22 based platform for the sheer sake of ease of maintenance. It's so nice just pulling out only 2-3 tools to work on the entire vehicle (see TLR 22).

I think a lot of the concepts for the 22 platform would convey well into SCT racing for a sheer durability standpoint. IE: all the hardware is just beefier.

I think from a business perspective it's a good move as well. Having your equipment become irrelevant is good for business, as long as you can come out with a better product to offer. Losi could choose to make it outdated themselves (by releasing a 22 based SCT), or just wait for competitors to come out with their next offerings.

I also imagine from a inventory / part management / tooling perspective, the most common parts you can have between platforms increases the revenue for all products since you're increasing the market / number of each, and removing the overhead of keeping tracking of additional parts.

So from a racer perspective there may not be much of a reason at this point, but I think from a business future perspective there certainly is .. assuming that XXX based sales will plateau.

funny you say that. i got into racing with an SC10 earlier this year, and even though 2WD and 4WD SC are my best classes, im really interested in focusing on 2WD Buggy and maybe even pick up a 4WD Buggy and Stadium Truck.

My SCTE has been sitting on the shelf since I won the first club race at my local track's grand opening (only because the TLR driver who qualified with an extra lap ahead of me left before the night ended ). Mostly because I have been waiting on the HA balls to come in. I got them the other day and haven't put them in yet, since I've really been only racing 2WD SC and Buggy for the past month (oh and Touring Car, )

At the Spektrum race in Milwaukee, just about the whole Losi Elec Team was there (Evans, Chambers, Phend, Thrue, Castillano, Dyno and Gahan) and only one ran 2wd SCT (Chambers).

I don't think they have allot of emphasis on the class IMO

Default Rear springs touch threaded shock bodies?

Anyone else notice that when the rear goes down/up, that the springs seem to lightly touch the threaded area of the shock bodies? I can see this wearing the threads out on the bodies. The front doesn't seem to do it for me, but i can hear the springs slide against the threads on the rear if I push it down and up.

Do you have the New Spring's or Stock Springs ? New Version's dont touch nearly as bad.

SCT is still way more popular around here then ST is. Stadium truck is making a come back and I think the 22T will give it that extra shot of life to hopfully bring back this really fun class to full prominace around so cal. I don't see Short Course racing going away though. It is hear to stay for a long time.

I would agree with most of that but a lot of the Losi line still uses quite a few XXX platform designs. XXX parts are not going anywhere for a while. Just too many cars out there still use them. (XXX-SCT, SCB, Desert Truck, Speed-T just to name a few).

Stock.
So what's the "new" version of the springs? I had been wondering if I should go with some different set of springs anyhow.

Might be that way where you are from, where goehm and I race everyone racing 2wd/4wd buggies are starting to pick up short course because they say it is a blast to race and they want an extra class to have fun in. Oh and Stadium truck is still completely nonexistant on the East Coast as far as I know.

also in addition to this^ The SCT *should* be almost exactly the same as the 22T. Maybe a different size wheel hex and a different alum chassis? obviously the XXX-T and the XXX-sct are almost the same and share parts so it would stand to assume the same for the 22T. That said, how much work would it be to develop a slightly longer chassis and borrow some hexes from another vehicle or make a new length part.

The XXX-SCT is pretty much the truck to beat, so no reason for Losi to come out with a 22-SCT until the other brands catch up, but it will happen.

To me I think they were trying to concentrate on the new 22T, since its release will be soon, imo. Also Im pretty sure truhe raced sct at the spektrum race, dont remember if it was 4x4 or 2wd
