How is that different from any other 1/10 scale?

Hey Ryan, virtually everything is on backorder for this truck. Any idea when things will be in stock? Thanks

What kinda of problems have been run into with these out of the box and what mods have people been doing to overcome them?

Also, info on whatever other mods all the koolkids are doing too please!

Grassyass amigos!
The diff pins have been a big deal. Losi has already got the new batch in (Monday) and will be sending out replacements to whoever bought the SCTE. All that us needed is to reguster the truck at losi, call horizon and they will send you out new ones.
The diff cups are wearing, but are lasting for quit a while. My Ten-T cups are good. The SCTE are the same ones. If you want the ultimate upgrade in cups, losi will have their HD cups out very soon.
That's about it. The truck is pretty solid otherwise.

There really are no mods anyone is doing. The rear aluminum pin mounts are nice. You can adjust your antisquat with them.

well losi is taking waaayyyy better care of their customers with the issues than durango is. all new rc cars seem to have teething issues thats normal but in my eyes its how the company takes care of them is what really matters and both losi and AE are well known for good customer care. im sure glad i didnt buy the durango man those poor guys are having horrible issues. bye the time late spring and early summer is here losi will have the teething issues worked out, personaly im holding out for the AE truck and i know im gonna go through the new truck 1st batch issues. but i also know like losi AE will take care of them fast. this is why losi and AE are the 2 best. i will say this and im normaly an AE guy but AE has nothing for that new TLR22 thats coming out soon, man thats a swanky beast there

Ran my 2nd race tonight. I qualified 4th out of 16. My rear bumper broke today.
So far I have broken a turn buckle and the rear bumper. Neither one was my fault. The rear bumper broke when I got rear ended by a Slash landing a tripple. The turn buckle was broken by a turn marshal stepping on the truck.

The bumper looks like it could use some more material around the holes.

Rage, I just got done racing today with my rx8 in, and it was awesome, the only problem i had was towards the end of the race (7min main) my car would start to stop running, and then go and stop and would do that over and over. I checked the temps and the hottest it got was 132, and i didnt even have a fan on it

Using the elite mount and chassis.

Must be nice to be out side, we are still running indoors. It is too wet and cold right now.

Right on. How are you liking that elite chassis? It looks like a winner.

Default fed up with heat issues

ok guys...i am fed up. i am running a novak hv 4.5 and novak pro sc esc. geared at 12/40 and 15/40. temps really dont change that much. after 10 minutes i am at 180 degrees. lipo was 115-120. motor will not make it this summer when ambient temps are 100. it was 80 here today.

that combo worked fine for 10 minutes with my jammin...but i guess the extra beefiness of the losi pushes the system to its limits. (not complaining about weight of truck. i punted quite a few slashes today)

basically looking for opinions. thought about getting a different esc and going to 3s. will that make it run cooler? my esc will not take 3s. my buddy found a hv pro 4.5 system at the lhs that has to be old stock because it is discontinued on tower. his manual says 2-4s lipo. but if you look on novak's site they say the 4.5hv is for 2s operation only. so i am thinking the 4.5 can handle the 3s.

but anyway. i tqed today and finished 2nd. the truck overheated glitched what ever and i had to baby it the last 3 minutes to finish. i was far enough ahead that i only fell to 2nd. gonna race again tomorrow at a small track so heat shouldnt matter tomorrow. looking forward to suggestions.
