I took my SCTE to the track for the first time, and in 2 batteries time I lost 2 bodyclips.
What clips can I best use / how can I avoid losing bodyclips all the time ?

Happened to me as well when I was learning the car and crashed a lot. Now I use simple holders made from a zip tie and fluorescent fuel tube so that they are easier to pull off after running and I have a chance of finding them. Looking for trying these when lhs gets them. You can see them better on here.

Gee this SCTE is fun!

For those that have used a VW body does it last longer? With the tires being exposed there is less surface to crack.

Another option is the Dubro body clip retainers. The come in whatever color you want. Just make sure you make the retainer hole the right size and they will stay put even after a good rollover.

To be honest, I haven't used it much - really just when having a little fun off the track, so not through any rough and tumble or jumps. I still prefer my SC body. If I really do something drastic one day it would be to convert it to an 8ight-E.

I agree that I don't get it much, and I'm not a VW fan, but since it was free, and it makes me smile what a totally different attitude it brings to the same underpinnings. I certainly wouldn't have done it myself.

TCC, how do you like the Proline Ion's? I am going to run indoor clay and was thinking about this tire choice. Guess I could run suburbs, barcodes or rattlers (all look the same anyway lol) or pressure points. Just wanted a report on your opinion on one of the newer high grip clay tires. Thanks

I've looked back several pages, and search is not turning up what I want to find. So far I bought a new sct ten, odered tekin 4000kv pro 4, rx8, 7954 hi-tech servo, (still waiting on electronics) and put on rpm a arms and bumpers, changed diff grease to oil and bought a 8 body to use as an overtray.

Stock towers and shocks don't look to impressive, and I want to use 8th shocks, and prefer to stick with losi. I'm just building this for fun. Can someone tell me (as if I were a newb) exactly what to buy to properly convert this to run 8th shocks and tower's.

Budget is not an issue, I just want to do it right, and once.
