well they released the nitro SCT version under TLR but no hop-ups/TLR parts on it and the same motor as the 810/Ten-T

Tire glue, also known as CA glue. Sand the edges first though.

Can we talk about shocks first again? I put my 8ight shocks on my SCTE, then put my SCTE shocks on my XXX-SCT, so that I could move my 22T shocks that I had on that to my XXX-T CR. But now I don't have any shocks for my 8ight. So I thought about buying another set of threaded XXX shocks to put on the 8ight. I figure two shocks at each corner would be good - just like they do on real trucks sometimes.

My local track has dirt and jumps - so I'm wondering if someone tell me what springs/oil/pistons I should use in each shock?

Talking about limiting droop (which is very different from ride height). Droop is the amount of down travel the suspension has when uncompressed. Screw in the front droop screws to limit the droop and this will help stop traction rolling.

I have an SCTE on the way that I traded my DESC410R for, it has a BCE chassis and a few other things but what are some spares I may break? I run on a large, bumpy and loose track with huge jumps so breakage happens. Also what pinions are recommended? I have MOD1 15-17T's already.

Why not put the8ight shocks back on the 8ight , SCTE shocks on the SCTE and upgrade them , and just get another set of 22T shock or a set of XXX shocks ? Your making things way to complicated .

Hey guys, I just received my SCTE roller today, tell me what you guys think of the electronics I have to get this truck going. don't be too rough if this isn't "ideal". (Note: I'm new to off-road and SC)

Servo: Spektrum 6040
ESC: Hobbywing Xerun 80amp ESC
Motor: Tekin Pro4 4600kv
Lipo: Orion 5000mah 90c 2s

I've been told this will be fairly competitive.

Thanks!

Your prety much set for spares. THIS TRUCK DOES NOT BREAK!!!!! Havent heard or done myself any breakage. The 15 tooth might be too high for the type of motors we run. What kind of motor do you have in it?

Best way to attach my RX8 to my new MIP chassis? Is double sided tape thick enough?

Use double sided tape and then put a dab of shoo-goo on the back side of the ESC. Will never move.

sorry if this has been asked already:

but how do you guys prevent the screws from stripping from the front and back gear box? some of my chassis/bumper screws no longer tighten so i assume its from the plastic gear box threads stripping. any hopups to prevent this or at least minimize this?
