Quick question how do you lock servo saver? Lock all the way down then back off 2 turns? Or just lock all the way down?

Lock it all the way down and use blue loc-tite. Some people even go as far as to use red loc-tite to make sure it doesn't EVER come loose.

Losi 8ight buggy shocks are nearly "DROP ON" for the scte or the 810 buggy. I don't bother with them on the scte as they are not needed, but the much heavier e-810 w/ 3s 5.5k lipo I did put them on and they perform very well. It takes about two seconds to install the 8ight shocks on it, put a small spacer (shock spacer works fine) behind the upper shock bushing and you are done.. everything else is a perfect fit. That said it depends on what weight you are as to a good setup, my 810 I run 40wt front w/ silvers, and 35wt rears w/ green. I'd say if I was going to use them on my scte I'd be looking at the red springs most likely.. but do keep in mind you really need the droop pads installed on the SCTE or the 810 when using the 8ight shocks, they are longer and you will need to set the droop to 89/101 or ball park. The stock geometry iMO is way better, though your idea was creative, again droop settings can control the extra extension.

ok, sounds awesome...but what spacers do you recommend as i dont have anything other than stock and my original plan the shock caps were not even close to fitting as the top diameter was soo large that it hit on the bottom of the tower and i had these brackets anyways so i wasnt out anything and just had to drill out 2 holes for the stock body mounts then they come as the other 2 out of the 4 lined up. I dont have the 8ight shock standoffs...do you think those would help for clearance and maybe why these dont fit right like you say?
As for the springs...should i just buy the 8ight shock kit that has a bunch of different springs and pistons and all that jazz or just buy a few certain sets like the red you said and something else...Our track is homemade and has big jumps with the biggest 1 having a flat landing(not my choice for sure) as it is 2-55 gal drums laying on there sides and end to end to get 4' wide for track and then the 2nd set the same way but usually i slow roll the first to set up for the 2nd jump

Also, what do you mean droop pads...yer getting technical on me, lol???
Are those the little allen screw on the arms that hit the chassis? i have them in stock position as i have never messed with them if thats what your talking.
I had it like this on the 810 stock with the 8ight fuel tank which was 130cc rather than the 80 something that was stock but it did pretty well but again i dont race it so never really paid that close of attention

Ya droop pads go under the grub on the chassis so the chassis doesn't wear. not really needed w/ the scte since you don't really use the droop setting. With the longer 8ight shocks you will need to, there are no stock holes so you will need to drill and tap for the 4/40 8ight droop pads. This is pretty painless, can buy drill/tap sets most anywhere.

I wouldn't buy the full 8ight spring set if I were you.. again depending on your weight silver front green rear maybe all you need.

The spacer.. basically a 2.75mm to 3mm spacer between the shock tower and stock bushing both front and rear is all you need to get clear of the shock towers.

The scte body mounts are super cheap, snag a set off ebay or the parts you need from a lhs.

ya, picked up the mounts on ebay for 5.60 on ebay with 2 shipping and my LHS says Horizon has them on backorder so i said forget it and did it ebay style, lol.

I paid the same for the 8ight shocks as i would have for a set of SCTE/810 shocks on ebay over this winter and thats the only set of shocks i have for the truck now as i sold the SCTE/810 shocks on my SL4SH roller but will have to check into this more but are you saying to buy the shock standoffs and mount them to the shock tower to get the 2.75/3mm clearance cuz i have the stock bushings and it wasnt enough to clear??

Absolutely nothing. I actually JUST changed mine out after running it (wait for it).....Since I bought it new from the first batch. Yes...when they first came to market. And the only reason I changed it is I thought "maybe it's time" . It didn't NEED to be changed. It's now on my sons SCTE.

BTW I am also STILL on my original A-Arms, front and rear. I run twice a week every week and they are still going strong. I have this large bag of NIP parts that just stay in the bag. I love how tough this thing is.

Nothing just noticed a tiny bit of wear after a few months of having it. Quick question: what are the differences between mod 1 and mod .8 ? Can they work together? Thought it was weird since my stampede 4x4 has a .8 mod spur and a 32pitch pinion. Is the stock scte spur mod 1 or mod .8?

I agree i just want the delrin so i wont have to replace it for a long long time. The stock a-arms are pretty bulletproof and i see no need to upgrade them anytime soon. Funny how rpm released a-arms for the associated sc10 4x4 and not the scte. One reason: IT'S TOUGH!!!!
