Every single 4wd truck out to day should be able to run faster lap times than a 2wd truck. If it wasn't then it was NOT being driven right or by good guys. No offense.

At my track, which has some very slow and technical sections, 4wds are beating the 2wds by 3 seconds a lap..
I thinkl you missed the part where 2wd sc trucks are 10th scale buggies with bodies. Made to run on tight indoor tracks. I was stating that the 4wd losi works well indoors, not just big 1/8th scale outdoor tracks. You lost the direction of where my post was going.

It's not that painful. This is the same thing on the buggy.
Hmm I dont have a pin issue anymore so it dosent take me any time to do it cause I dont have to do it. Should I time how long it takes me to tear down the entire truck and compare. I hope you speak german when you need instrucions.

kind of a bad pick but everything lines up.


It doesnt look like you have to use the sleve caue your pinion fits. I have the losi mod 1 pinion and have to use a robinson sleeve and its a bit tricky..Thanks for your time bud!

SNR now sells the updated towers so you can use the stock SCTe body mounts.

If you plan on using the 8ight shocks have the stand off mounting holes drilled to fit the 8ight stand offs (4mm). Ask Steve when you order, he will drill them.
The stock body mounts are a direct drop-in on the new towers.

This truck just amazes me, every time I drive it I get faster and faster. I'm just off by one second of my electric 1/8 buggy times on the same track. Someone said it before, "I feel like I'm cheating driving this car"

tekin said both 550/4.5r and 5.5r use 2s only, so what is the difference and how to choose ???
as 5.5r can use smaller gear ratio so i think the top speed is similar

We had a big race not to long ago. We had JR Mitch from Team Associated their plus we have someone who drives for Losi that races at our track most of the time on a weekly basis (he drove the 22 last week).

Associated beat Losi in 2wd Open (actually pretty much dominated to say the truth...I don't think all weekend long did JR Mitch ever not lead a lap in 2wd Short Course Open). Anyway, pretty sure in 2wd they were running high 23 second lap times with a good track. Of course Associated didn't run 4wd SC class, but the Losi driver did and he was running low 21 to high 20 second lap times. Though, I actually turned the fastest lap of any 4wd SC the whole weekend with my Hyper.

Of course it all depends on track in how close the times are and all that, but unless the track is just crazy small and crazy technical (the smaller the track, usually means less lap time difference), 4wd should be turning the same times if not faster times. Epically when the track is dry with no grip. You get the same exact person (who can drive both trucks actually) their 4wd times will more than likely be the same, if not faster. My 4wd turns in just as good as my 2wd does really.

I think in the real trucks when they do that 4wd vs. 2wd race, they start the 2wds out with like a 12 second head start. I think last year their was a photo finish 4wd caught the 2wd on the last turn.

I'm getting ready to order oil for the diff's, how much does it take per diff ? Can I get more than one diff per tube, or figure one tube per diff ?

A normal size bottle of diff fluid should get you through about 15 to 20 fluid changes...

Can anyone give me the part number for the DE wheels that fit this truck with zero modifications as well as any other wheel part numbers that fit this truck properly with zero modifications?
