Here (Central / Midwest) Arena Truck never really took as big a hit as the rest of the country, 2wd Buggy did. SCT has brought allot of people into the sport, but many are moving on to 2wd Buggy / Arena Truck (better performance, less problematic on the large 1/8 scale tracks and wind here).

Somebody posted some battery weights thew other day that didn't quite jibe with me, so here's my findings:







As you can see, the gens 5000/40c weighs exactly the same as the nano tech 5600/50c, and the 6000/65c are a mere 10 grams more. I'll take more pack for the same weight any day

Thanks for posting that up for us, I could tell these packs didn't weigh over 300grams

I am modding my battery tray today at lunch, I got the CNC code all programmed to cut holes in the bottom of the tray. What I am wondering is if anyone has tried to mill the screw holes down some to lower the C.G. I will already have it in the vice so its only a couple more buttons. I did not bring the chassis with me to see if the mud guards would get in the way if I dropped it some ... say .07" so everything is at the same height as the battery spacer supports on the bottom. I know I will have to put in some shorter hardware not a big deal.

Thanks guys.

In fact, I have a big full length strip of duct tape on the bottom of each nano tech and none on the gens, for sure worth even a few more grams

I can tell you that a few things get in the way of lowering the battery as I have looked at this as well. The mud guard screws get in the way and if you have the chassis insert that covers the holes in the losi chassis in it, those get in the way as well. If you have another chassis or you just dont run the cover, then its just the mud guard.

Thanks I had a feeling the mud guards would get in the way just didnt have my chassis with me at work to check it out. Guess I will leave the height alone ... not like that would have done much anyways ... at least not that my skills would notice lol.

One thing I was looking at doing was extending any screw that sits below the tray to go thru the tray itself and be secured via a countersunk nut.

Then you can trim down any extrusions and only have to worry about the kickup on the side of the chassis, and the height of the guard itself.

Something like this:

I don't think it's half the truck the Kyosho or even the SC10 is. Being the Losi fan that I am though, I'll buy a 22sct when it comes out, but my stint with the xxx is thankfully over. 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.



I think the main reason why its hard to sell your xxx-sct is because from what ive seen people are not running 2wd sc nearly as much as 4x4 sc i cant blame them though. Yea my xxx-t was sitting around collecting dust also since there was not many tracks that are 1/10 scale outdoors yea there is one track ive used to go to that met for them but i dont like thier track though.

But its a reason why the xxx-t was out for a long long time it won at every level. Its not to hard to drive with the right tires

The truck to beat> LMAO

Around here xxx-sct's are near nonexistent in the A main. It's all Kyosho with a few SC10's. I thought I was getting my truck close to dialed using a few "pro" settups...then I drove one of the top local K trucks. It was night and day, like cheating!! The K trucks are light years ahead of the xxx, and now they have the new SP truck coming out to raise the bar further! I mean, I love most losi products, but I'm not afraid to call a spade a spade, and the XXX-sct is SEVERELY lacking IMHO, and thats even before you factor in driveline durability.
