Hey i was reading on in this thread here. Im pretty sure this is what i want to buy for my son to race now since he getting good at the two wheel. I kinda wondering what upgrades are need on this guy here. I can all ready figure that the 1410 castle and the rx8 is a good combo. I only made it to the two hundred page mark and said there just two many to read though so sorry for that. i just need the upgrade slash if the motor combor is still the best.

Is that using emulsion set up or with bladders?

bladder style, with about 3/4 rebound (make sure they match).

bladder on rear w/ 1/4 rebound.

In that quote I said 37.5/40wt, I never go to 40wt unless it's my old ae oils that are the same as losi 37.5wt. I like 37.5 myself on the front as I noted, black springs (stock or race black work), stock pistons. No sway. Works great, lots of steering yet still stable.

+1 on the 1410, ran it all last year and all winter long - did very well for me paired with a mmp (smooth powerband very controllable and nice speed)

8ight-e, me, and a few factory drivers at are track used sensorless motors. 8ight-e had the fastest lap at are track for the pro-series and Billy Fisher was there....... he was using a sensored motor.

I know some guys run 8ight shocks on their SCTE....has anyone ever tried to run standard D8 shocks on one? Do they fit? I only ask because I have a set on hand from a parts buggy...and if I can avoid buying 8ight shocks then great! If not....well I'll break down and snag a set ;-)

I tried D8 shocks at one time. I didn't like the way they fit. Kind of put too much of an angle on the shock. Plus they were to long. I now run the 8ight shocks with the 8ight stand offs. Had to drill the shock tower to accept the stand offs. Truthfully the stockers are just fine and work for alot of people. At the time there wasnt much piston and spring choices so I went with the 8ights.

Ive never ran the D8 shocks but I did run the losi eight shocks, takes alot of work playing with pistons and oils to get the correct setup. With the updated spring kits I would honestly stick with the stock shocks.

8ight shocks add weight and iMO don't improve jumping or handling, even on huge 1/8 tracks.. But to each his own. I messed with this early on as well, best bet is 8ight front buggy shocks on all four, but again waste of time and money to mod. There are much better upgrades and mods to do with those funds iMO. The one guy makes CF toweres that are a little taller to help with the fitment as well if u do go that way. I had the ofna 4x4 prior and the 8ight shocks did help that setup... Not enough to keep it though, LOL

Big thanks to Bruce at Xtreme Racing for contacting me after reading my initial review/post of the hybrid losi scte chassis, and about the broken top plate(my fault for not running a front brace). Great customer service is refreshing. He informed me that the front brace is a must, but the rear is optional. Just an FYI for those who are interested

Fully agree with 8ight. My scte comes in at a tad over 7lbs, I dont realy care about weight... at least not with my RC cars . Price wise the 8ights are ~$10 more than full TLR scte shocks (we need a TLR kit for this). The springs are way more expensive for the 8ight! I borrowed my full setup off a local fast guy, so I didn't need to do any trial and error.

To huge for what? It's not legal at any race event including most club races. Will it bolt on for bashing sure.... Drive Train will take a beating but it will be fun, no doubt.
