The team has noticed that the round o-rings tend to get twisted up and don't seal as well as a "square" o-ring from a cut bladder does. Just something to do with the thin wall of the shock body and how the cap trys to hold on to it and the sucking of the o-ring during extension. Cut bladders seem to work the best.

thanks for that information Mr C.. when you cut them... do you just slit them or cut the whole center out ? Thanks.

Cut out the center. It does not need to be pretty either. I just use some little sharp scissors (I have some tire tuning scissors but lexan scissors work well also) and cut a slit to start in the middle and then cut a circle out in the middle.

Mike Truhe shows how it is done in this quick video at the 1 min mark

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
Well the reason I asked is because I already have the D8 shocks (set of 4 fronts) that I was running on my Slash 4X4 before I upgraded to the Losi. The stock shocks seem to do OK, but I do a LOT of running on 1/8th scale tracks and the D8 shocks made a night and day difference in the way my Slash soaked up the bumps. I was wondering if I'd get the same bang on the SCTE seeing as it's quite a bit heavier. I've got most of the upgrades I could want on my SCTE at the moment....and have a set of RCShox pistons that I have yet to try in the stock shocks as well.

Maybe I'll do a few test runs with them and see if I like em. Pretty sure I ended up running 20wt all around in my Slash with them....probably the same fluid or slightly heavier would work for the Losi as well. Just wanted to see if anyone else actually tried them before I have a go at it.....

You're probably looking at around the 20th of April is what most retailers are saying

When I first got the truck, I didn't have a proper system to put in it yet, so i borrowed my MMM/2650 from my Losi eight-E 2.0 and put it in. My track has a 2s limit so I ran it that way and it was like I was stuck in molasses. I probably would have needed like a 25T pinion to make it work, but even then, you're putting so much load on your batteries, you're just asking for them to puff. So, i talked to my race director about it and he let me run 3s for club racing. On 3s the top end was about the same as the other trucks running the 550 can motors on 2s (nobody was running 4pole 540 cans yet). But the biggest disadvantage that I had was weight distribution. It jumped weird, the shocks also weren't designed to handle all of that weight either. I'm sure I could have improved the setup but my intention was just to make this setup work until I got a proper system for it. Just for the heck of it, I ran it on 4s during a practice a couple of times and it would wheelie down the straights and turned the tires into pizza cutters lol fun yes, but wouldn't have been good for racing. When I finally bought the CC1410 motor, i was using it with the Mamba Monster ESC and that was an epic combo. Gave the truck the power it needed on 2s without putting any strain on the batteries and also the truck handled much better with better weight distribution. Just do it right and run a 540 can 4-pole motor, personally I run the Tekin Pro4 4600 and until something else proves itself better, I'm sticking with it.

I ran that setup for a little while. It worked great and made plenty of power. The only reason I switched to something else was that it wasn't right for our local track. I think the 4000kv would have been better.
