You know with this truck comming from the 8ight line on vehicles you would think they would learn something from them. I picked up my 8ight T 2.0 yesterday and it is way beefier than the miniaturized SCTE version. The SCTE is well built but there are just some wimpy parts on it that make no sense, like the rear bumper. I really don't understand the hex inserts in the diffs.
The part pictured is not the part ive been breaking its the part that, that peice connects to.Its the peice that slides off the front of the shock tower.That sits right on top of the tranny case.Has four screws that go through it to fasten the tower down. Sorry i dont have a camera to take pictures right now ryan.Hopefully you understand my description.

Do you have a part number for that? Im actually looking for a metal servo horn for my SCTE. However, my search has come up nil. The height of the plastic saver is much higher than the few metal horns ive seen.

Yeah, the big thing there is the extra length for that rear adjustable hinge pin brace and the extreme angles we are using.

How to do you know what sizes are in this sway bar set?
In the front 2.0, 1.8, 1.6

In the back 2.2, 2.0, 1.8

The colors go Black, silver Black...

So the thick black sway bar in the front is the 2.0, the silver is 1.8 and the thin black bar is 1.6

Yeah I can see how that will help, I'm just going with what I think come's in on Top of my Upgrade parts List, I still need to buy the lightend outdrives I'm just letting my stock ones wear out some more before I upgrade, I Can't wait to get those New shock shafts, There going to look Great being GOLD with Blue Shock Bodys it will add some style points to the truck

That Servo Saver Post I've read different things from other companys making them as a upgrade for other model trucks/Car's Is the Nitride coating suppose to make it so there's less resistance while turning cause of the coating or whats the real theroy with those?

I know Casper said it will help with slop but I just had to check my truck to confirm if I had slop coming from that part but I got all my slop in my Turn buckle end's. I need the HA ones to fix this as my truck's been ran alot and those are stock. I set them at -1 degree's camber and I bet they go -3 in and +2 out. It almost looks like I got a loose tire but there not haha.

Good thing tax season comes before spring so I can get her ready

ryan, new parts look great (not the actual parts as we haven't seen them, but the concepts) and i think they all come in at pretty good price points. when can we expect to see these parts become available?

Here is my Set-Up:

Front:
30wt, #3 Piston, Green Spring, Out on Tower and Arm for Shock Positions, Lower Camber Link Hole on Tower, Full Droop (Unscrew Shock Ends 2 Turns), 27mm RH, 7K Diff, Stock Sway Bar.

Center:
7K

Rear:
27.5wt, #4 Piston, Green Spring, Out on Tower and Arm for Shock Positions, Lower Camber Link Hole on Tower, Full Droop (Unscrew Shock Ends 2 Turns), 27mm RH, 3k Diff, Next Thicker Sway Bar from Stock (Forgot what size).

Using "BCE Chassis"

Castle MMP, Tekin 4600, 14T Pinion, Integy IP 6200 2S Batts, Easy 10 mins every time.

I use the Hot Bodies Megabite Tires 99% of the time. This is a very easy to drive setup that you can push hard. Give it a try.

TLR4004 - New 7075 HA servo saver tube (tolerances are much improved at the bearing fitments)

TLR5063/TLR5064 - Fr/Rr titanium nitride shock shafts

TLR6080 - Titanium Nitride hinge pins (made the inner hinge pins 1mm longer to aid with the angles we are using with these adjustable pivot supports so they do not pull out any longer)

If you have any questions, please let me know...just an FYI though.
Thanks for the update Ryan! Correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall you mentioning a stripping issue with the differential case molds and screws to the chassis? Have you completed the investigation and what are the results? I'm looking at using some skid plates and will buy run longer screws to compensate for their thickness (by 1/8") but do the current casings have any more room? (sorry don't have longer screws otherwise I'd test myself).

Also does anyone know why vendors besides Losi doesn't drill and tap holes for droop screws in the after market chassis for the SCTE? For something that's CNC driven you'd think 4 extra holes wouldn't be that costly or time consuming? Being material type unbiased, these things are still ~$100 and quite frankly I'd expect these features to be there in an after market/option part.

How many of you SCTE racers also run an 8ight-E?

BCE has a new 8ight-E chassis coming out real soon. I've seen the pics, and it looks sweet. No more annoying nitro holes so you can ditch all the filler pieces.

Keep your eye out Pics will be up when I get one in my hands. Now my SCTE and e-scale will finally match
