extra tires. ...if you drive big jumps crash a lot maybe. losi cf towers. .. or a manufacturer of your choice. and after you get really good at driving,,,... a good chassis. I like my BCE but there are others out there... your call... shocks. by rcshox valves are working for me. makes the car planted. it really depends how you drive. but out of the box you should be able to last and have a good time

Default aftermarket chassis

I was wondering if anyone out there has used the extreme cf chassis. I bough a used ten scte and the TLR chassis was cracked at one of the gaurd mounting holes. The three chassis I am lookin at are the TLR, Jammin, and Extreme. I am sure the bump or BCE chassis are good, I just dont like the shiny aluminum look. any help would be great

Bump's not shiny, it looks like the TLR, hard anodized.

When you guys jump, does the truck naturally nose over or do you have to hit the brake to make it come down?

I'd like to get one of these to run on the bigger 1/8 scale kind of tracks.

depends on your driving style and setup..

i drive mine all the way to the jump.. and let off right at the top.. to get the nose down.. this also helps with parachuting effect of the body.

Depends on how you are hitting the face of the jumps , you cant jump a 4x4 like a 2WD because of the added weight and drag of the front driveline . Most of the time you need a little extra throttle to keep the front end up .

Chassis tuning also plays a huge part in how you car will launch off of jumps , I use the battery in the rear posistion and my truck flys nice and level , but my springs and oils have been changed as well .

Every 4x4 I have driven (not tried a SC10 4x4 with the sadle pack setup or the Durango) has been a little nose heavy .

Spektrum 6040: 0.08 second transit time with 166 oz-in of torque at 6.0V

If you can find them used they should go for around $50

Just an FYI, the Bump chassis is hard anadized like the TLR not shiny aluminum.

Sc10's jump ass down but I think it's a combination of approach/technique, the center diff that everyone is running (locks the front and rear gearboxes full time instead of the standard slipper setup) and the rear spring rate. I can go level and nose down but not consistently yet.

The Losi's clearly have the advantage there. They can control themselves in the air like a 1/8 scale buggy which is cool.

If budget allows I definitely want to get one of these by mid summer.

I would rather have a truck that jumps nose down and land on the downside consistently and that you can level by giving throttle.

From pictures I have seen the SC10 is tail heavy, with around a 45/55 weight distribution. The SCTE balances quite a bit father forward, like 51/49.
