Guys, if you are gonna just scream at each other, please do it via PM.

I raced at the JBRL this weekend and am happy to report that my truck was 55 grams lighter than the most competitive SC10 4x4 this weekend. So much for all the reports of how much lighter it is...made me smile.

Dude, you need to comment on something you have tried. Who gives a crap if it's just been out recently? Since you think your opinion is so important. Buy a damn chassis and then come on here and give your opinion, until then what you have to say about it means squat.
FYI he has tried the tlr and Bce.

Dude don't waste your time with this dude. He did the same crap with me when I said the shock towers were crap when I first started posting here. He said I was spreading false info

Hey guys, does the SCTE kit come with the tires premounted or not? I heard that the foams in the stock tires aren't good so I'm planning to order a set of proline foams for the stock tires if the kit comes with the tires unglued. Thanks.

yes they come premounted, if you run on loose dirt tracks they work pretty good but if you dont then just bake the tires off and run the tires that your locals prefer to use.

I used the plastic one when I was running my SNR Chassis. I feel the plastic still gives you enough torsional flex that you get good traction through the turns, while it stiffens the chassis up front to rear. Fits perfect on the stock chassis too and what my friend is using.

Its common sense, I dont see 1/8 buggys or truggys running cf chassis running outdoors or indoors anywhere here in socal. Thats why there is only 2 companies now that I've heard of that makes CF chassis, SNR and Xtreme racing. If cf chassis were better more people would run them and make them.
I ran the SNR CF chassis twice a week for 8 months. It worked VERY well for me. Didn't break. I've been running the BCE chassis for about 1 1/2 months, bent it yesterday. Now, I will admittedly say, it was my fault because the screws that hold the front of the Diff housing to the chassis were backing out and acted as a big shovel and lever and bent the front of my chassis. But I have been very happy with the BCE chassis (went back to stock rear brace when using this chassis). Bummed I bent it and will try to bend it back. I was also very happy with the SNR chassis, it was just time to replace it from wear after running it as much as I did. I'm sure I coulda probably put another 4 month's into it easily, but the BCE chassis became available at a price that was too good to refuse.

Hi guys,
Has anyone tried the alum collars with HA shock bodies? Do they fit the threads better then on the stock ones?

Unfortunatly the stock tires are glued, but the stock tires and foams seem to work quite well depending on what kind of track your on. Also, the stock tires seem to be a little taller, so Im not sure how well the proline foams would work, it almost seems that you would want to run 1/8 buggy foams... I dont know.

This saturday I hit up another local 1/8 style track that was in poor shape,and bested my personal best(AE SC10 4x4, when the trackwas in good shape) by 1.5 seconds. And it was windy as heck, so I wasnt even triple doubling the big jumps(i was double single doubling it).

Dont know why I waited so long to switch... this truck is darn good!

Hey Gary, I think I got it smooth. I am used to belt drive and super quiet so maybe its just me thinking something is wrong.
