I know what you mean, you really can't talk about this with any authority until you've gotten a few screws under your belt. I still remember the first day I got my first screw.

That was a great day.

Wait .. what are we talking about now?

Ok so this isnt final, but this seems to be the best package to fix all the problems with the SCTE. Drivetrain will be not only tougher but lighter. Will have a lighter chassis, mud guards cuz ther cool. The CVD keepers to hold in the tougher better CVDs. Full set of new screws which I like.

Is there anything else that Im missing here?
I'm not certain that the CVD keepers will work with tekno driveshafts

Yes and no . They are definitely smoother when new and the hinge pins are 1 mm longer which makes them ideal for the adjustable hinge pin holders . I have both and the TiNi coating on mine wore off pretty quickly although they are still smooth . M2C has recently came out with their version of the hinge pins which are also 59mm and coated I think I will try them when I replace my hinge pins again .

I went to the track yesterday and had the RPM front bumper on.

Problem #1 the front bar gets in the way of the body, lifting the body off and angled it up. I cut the extra bars on top and made it just like the stock bumper. Problem solved.

Problem #2 the added weight is certainly something odd to deal with. You can feel the truck is now even more nose heavy. You can correct it in the air with some throttle, but you have to play with it before hand.

Its a decent bumper, has lots of protection for the truck and the nose. It does drag a bit digging into turns, however, wasnt nearly as bad as i thought. I might actually dremel off the channels on the bumper on the skid plate. That should give you another 1-1.5mm clearance.

My thoughts.

How fast would you say they wore out?

yeah i'm not to fond of the bumper catching or hanging up on the front of the body. Might try dremeling those channels out like you said. Does anybody know where i can get the 8-32 x 5/8 in screws they include for the front rpm bumper? Really like them a lot better than the stock short 8-32 x 3/8 in screws. The stock ones make the rear gearbox & rpm skidplate really easy to strip out. The 5/8 in rpm screws would really help this. I find it weird they included the right screws for the front bumper, but not the rear skidplate which mounts directly to the same location.

my local lumber/hardware store has an extensive screw assortment, except they don't have 5-40 size.

I thought the same thing as dremeling out the channels if it hangs but havent ran indoors as around here everything is outdoors right now, no indoor stuff that i kno of. As for taking the body off im not sure what you mean...i have the RTR body(stephenson) and no problems
