Thanks for the heads up. I did order some new ProTek R/C 4.0mm "Super Bullet" Solid Gold Connectors and will solder up some new connectors direct to the ESC and I will mark all my batteries with Red tape on the Positive side.

Those birdcage style bananna plugs do not make good enough contact for the high amperage draw that motor system will demand and will heat up and melt the side in the battery . Been there done that !

Get some solid bullets (Castle or Duratrax make good ones) either solder them onto the leads from the ESC and not use a plug (But you MUST becareful of polarity) or make a new lead for the battery .

The protek bullets are great. Easy to solder too.

That body is the Andy's RC "Warrior 1" High-Flow Body Matthew Olson (MIP Matt) runs those bodies on his 2wd and 4wd trucks

Really nicely made bodies, super thick!! However, they just look kinda short in the rear, when they're out racing around the track, with other SCT's.. lol, either way, stupid awesome looking body!

You're welcome , just trying to save you some money/headaches .

I was lucky that all that happened to me was the battery case melted and the connector came out of the battery . I have seen one short out and start the battery on fire , not cool to watch your 500+ dollar truck burn down

thanks for tips peoples! held the soldering tip on the screw head for a little and then went at it with a cheap L wrench(didn't want to tear up my good tools). with enough force she broke loose twisting the wrench a little bit. i just can't believe the screw head held up... guess it's not as soft as butter.

I've had my scte for a few weeks now and I love this truck! It's the first short course truck I've ever owned and I'm very happy with it. I've only brought it to the track a few times but it's super fun to drive. The one thing I don't like is the horrible parachuting from the body but that's not a surprise considering I've been driving it on a 1/8th scale track with some big jumps. I don't want to get a new body just yet so I guess I'll just have to do some cutting on the current body. Anyway, just wanted to share my experience with my scte; I definitely want to start racing it soon.

That Loctite is Still "Intact" as you can still see it all over the threads. MORE heat would turn the loctite into essentially Dust. I wasn't kidding with the Torch Comment. That's essentially the only way i can adjust my Nitro Motor Mounts. After Multiple year's of loctite they are pretty seized in there which for Motor Bolts is actually a wise idea So there's No chance of them backing out/Changing mesh during a main.

I carry one of these in my Pit box for Emergencies.

Welcome to the club.

On the old bodies i cut out the fan circles on the rear deck, trim down the read fender/tailgate area and drill the vent holes in the windshield.

Hey guys I have a question about the current limiter on my rx8 that I'm running in my SCTE.... I drove it the other day with my Pro4 4600 and it blew through my battery pack so quick it was unbelievable. How do you guys have your current limiter and will it help my run times? My 2s is a 5300, also will the limiter effect the performance of the truck?

I should have posted this earlier seeing that I'm going to be at the track in 3 hrs and I want to finish my races.. Lol

Thanks,
Dan

I run mine at 70%, have more than enough power (I have to dial back EPA) and I can get 15min runtimes easily. I usually pull it off after 10-12 to be conservative.

What oil can I best order to use for Front, center and rear diffs ? (I'll be running on carpet & astroturf mainly, if that matters)
And do I need anything else when changing to oil ? (new seal-thingies or anything ?)
From front to rear, 5,5,3 is pretty popular. A bunch of us locally are trying out 7,7,5. So, 7000, 5000, and 3000 weights oughta get you going and give you something to experiment with.
