Does anyone know of a shock rebuild kit for the SCTE shocks that don't include all the extra parts I don't need? I would like just the o-rings. I thought there was another brand of o-ring that would work, but I can't remember who makes them, not losi.

Problem is on my track we have two straights both with a high speed corner at the end they are short but fast sections my issue is that when I let of the throttle to setup for the corner the rear of the truck washes out/over steers I have tried all I can to keep this from happening and I am at a loss please give me some ideas
Put the battery as far forward as it will go, it will really help on fast off power sweepers.

Default Brand new Kit, loose front end and...

I just bought a new RTR SCTE and love it.

There is one complaint right from the box is that is the loose rod ends on the balls. It looks like this is not un-common. What are you recommendation to take all that play out? my plan so far it to order the HA balls and new rod ends.

I race on a indoor clay track, what would you folks change about the stock config? the plan so far is to order up some MC tires and hit the track to see how it runs. I've been reading about the removing the grease from the diffs, what are you putting back in it?

What do you mean by loose like falling out of the rod end? they are suppose to have some movement to them.

I ran front 5k,center 5k,rear 3k diff fluid in mine and it was great. The box setup is great but Dakotahs set up on the Losi site was better. The only thing I changed was moving the front camber link to the top position. It gave me alot more steering there.

The front end has several mm of play that if you hold one tire and gently move the other tire. I can see the play in the rod ends to the balls.

Shocks:

Rear> New Orange Spring #4 piston 30 W
Run 27 mm Ride hight
2* camber front and back
Make sure no drag brake.
Sounds like an interesting setup I may give it a try after some testing tomorrow what track do you run at I would like to compare it to the tracks I run at if you have a video I would love to see it, also I asume the oil weights listed are with cut bladders correct?
