In reality...I was out front and hit that rythym section with no rythym and BLEW OUT, lol. I tried to get back up there but every time I would make some ground, I would always get the bad end of any tap or anything. I kept at it though and had some fun, but pretty dissappointing. Its never the same without Casper there.

Rudy is getting pretty fast...I love seeing that.

Newby with a SCTE, who has spur gear options. I can't seem to find them on the losi site. Running on a super loose sandy track and temps higher than I would like. RX-8, 4600 Pro 4, running 12-40 (smallest pinion I can fit).

Any help appreciated, Thanks Steve

Tyically moving hubs forward on a 4wd reduces fwd bite to free up the rear end on power. Opposite for moving the hub back.

I had a campout planned with my Daughter that weekend that I could not move so I had to miss only my second JBRL event since they started. Wish I was there but had some good family time. Sounds like the track was in amazing shape. I would have loved to have been there but we will back in the series with round #5 at CCR. I have been hearing a lot of great things about Pegasus lately. Might need to make it out there for a club race again soon.

What setup of dunford do you run there are 2 of them?

That is a pretty low gear for that setup. What are your motor temps?

Losi only makes the 40 although with some slight mods you can get the 8ight spurs to fit.

I use the new one. I race with Ryan all the time so we tend to adjust our cars similarly once one of us finds something new that is working. We compare notes all the time.

Gear up to 13T or 14T and turn down the current limiter. The motor is getting hot because you're spinning the tires too much. These 4 pole motors do not like to over rev.

I run the CC 3800 4 pole motor with the HW SCT PRO 120A ESC/ 14t and love it. Factory settings on the ESC and this truck blows the Durangos, AE's and Slashs off of a med to big outdoor track. No heating issues (155)with the CC fan, down on the Gulf Coast. I use a 6400 70c 2s lipo and can get 20mins of hard running with this set up (usually 12min). A 4000 kv 4 pole motor will be the biggest motor I'll run in my lighten up SCTE.

The SCTE rearward adjustable battery trays are back in stock. Thanks to some feedback I moved the battery and end plates out 1/8" to help clear the aluminum chassis braces and long rear brace. All pre-orders will ship first thing tomorrow.

You can get more info on my for sale thread:

Thanks,


Chris

ya 14t is a nice spot.. 13t is fine for smaller tight tracks but it needs 14t on the bigger tracks for sure. I suggest no timing and play with the limiter to find the sweet spot for temps. I actually just pulled my 4600 out.. My finger and it don't agree w/ each other. I like a different power band. Great shape only 5 race days on it (~90minutes) missed a few heats getting to the track late, but figure w/ practice it balances out; never over 200 if anyone is looking for one

Corvallis! Go Beavers!

The current date in the system is 5/28 so there is a good chance you will see them by the end of the month in stores or at least first week of June.
