I was told they would with a spacer...I Put them on when mine was still an 810 and the shock cap was too big and hit the tower but haven't messes with them since converting it to an SCTE. Was also told they are overkill as the stocks are good enough and need to adjust the little grub screw for droop since these are longer shocks. I interested I can pm you what they told me...

Essentially drop on... you need a small spacer behind both the front and rear top shock bushings to make it work. (2.75-3.00mm spacer). The additional spacers are enough to clear the shock caps and tops, everything else is a match using the losi 8ight (buggy) shocks.

This is not needed unless you are running 1/8 electronics and huge lipo's driving your total weight up. I run the stock shocks on my scte, but I do have the 8ight shocks on my 810 now. But I'm running a larger 3s lipos in the buggy.

As noted above, if you run these you should do the "droop pad mod" which was detailed several times in this thread, the shocks are too long and you will want to set the droop and the grub screws will dig into your chassis and will wear very fast.

Using Piano wire and cutting your own Pins is IMO the wrong way to do it. Not only will Cutting the Rod mess with the temper of the steel It would be Super Annoying to have to cut each pin every time you need to press a new one into place.

Are these actually made from titanium or are they steel with a coating?

If the latter, I can't see the benefit.

What can I do to get more steering? I have TLR kit in it 0 all around. I have 3-3-2 in the diffs. It turns ok but I need a lot more off power steering. It's fast now as long as I stay in the race line. If I get into traffic It slows me way down cause I can't control it enough. Track is a large 1/8 scale outdoor track I would say med grip.

Ti-Ni is a super hard coating which keeps the shaft from wearing as fast , and keeping the movement smooth .

Large question without knowing your set up on your truck. would you post your shock locations sway bar size. springs, Please. then maybe someone can tell you what would help.

Thanks, I thought as much.

Does anyone offer an actual titanium hinge pin set for the SCTE?

Anyone seen and/or tried these RPM arms & front bumper?

The arms are pointless IMHO. The stock arms don't break unless you hit something insanely hard. The RPM arms will be warped in no time because they are too flexible.

I'm running stock springs stock sway bars. Shock locations are middle all the way around top and bottom.

The end caps go to the outside. If you mount them the other way the battery will rub the spur gear.

I had completely forgotten about the plastic spacer on the stock truck. I never owned one. I converted my truck from e TEN-T to a SCTE and used the BCE chassis from day one. I can look at my son's RTR tonight and let you know what to do.

Sorry,


Chris

So first issue is the battery holders themselves, they aren't centered. Does the short side go to the inside or outside of the truck? And second, the plastic nub that is part of the motor mount/center diff assembly that holds up the stock tray. Do I just dremel that off? The instructions say nothing about it's existence or what to do with it. I'm pretty sure I figured out which holes on the chassis line up to the tray, the inside hole in the front and the rear slotted hole, right? OMG I'm hot.........

Increase your negative camber, take your front sway bar off, move you shocks out more on the bottom position on the rear, and make sure your servo saver is tight.
