That would be my opinion on the subject...we will see what actually happens.


sounds like there is something up your sleeve there Hacker...

To be honest - the SCTE is a great truck... there is definately some misses and parts that need to be reworked if a SCTE 2.0 or 224sct or whatever it will be called... DIFF CASES - DIFFS (well that got fixed) and really the balance of the truck. I run the MIP pro4formance and it has much better steering and handling than the "stock" arrangement of driveline and battery. However I just tried yours and Casper's 22 2 hole #55 pistons on the truck... I will have to say I think that is the best handling that truck has ever been. Not only does it have incredible steering, the pack on the shocks is perfect. No more slapping the chassis, or insane weight xfer that the bypass1 have. just feels incredible.

Please people, not this again !
There is no reason, I repeat, NO reason whatsoever to think Hacker's post implies that in february Losi will release a Short Course Truck (Electric) with fixed diffs, a better chassis with a straightened drivetrain, better shocktowers and a few other minor changes.
None whatsoever !

None whatsoever !
And no left-threaded screws for mounting the right front and left rear shocks on the arms? No reversible battery/esc tray?

If these were included in a car that is to be released in february there is no reason to assume Hacker was implying the existence of said car.

Venom in my opinion fits into the latter class but with a much better pricepoint and a lifetime warranty.
venom has a lifetime warranty?

I'm thinking of trying these HPI Wheels on my SCTE for fun. The 4.5mm wheel offset should give my car a wider wheelbase afaik, does anybody foresee any problems with this or will they just bolt on fine ?

(Has anybody actually tried using 4.5mm offset wheels on a scte before ?)

nevermind i read the warranty for venom batteries it basically said a one year replacement and after that 30% off a new one and they have the right to refuse if they think you abused the battery. so its more like a one year warranty

Angry Losi SCTE 2.0

How retarded... if Losi makes an updated version before making a 4x4 Buggy,
I'll throw a hissy fit....

Losi do the right thing, sell some updated parts only. Make that 4x4 Buggy Pronto!!

I'm having an issue with my truck's steering. It turns all the way to the right like normal but doesn't turn much to the left. I have taken the horn off several times and re-centered the servo but that's not doing anything. It's the stock horn, all the steering components are stock. I just got a futaba 4pl which I'm still figuring out so maybe it's a setting I can change on there but I'm not sure. The endpoints are 100 for both right and left. Does anyone know how I can fix this? The servo is a hitec 7985mg.

They do now. Maybe because they don't last long they decided to go with lifetime warranty. I can't tell you how many people I have seen come to the track and run a venom pack 1 time and then it quits. I think mainly with the 4wds. Luckily the lhs will just give them a new one. I think they were having problems with the female bullet plug built into the battery coming unsoldered but I think they got that problem fixed. Haven't seen anyone have a problem in awhile. At $100 a pack I would never buy one but I did win one in a raffle. I just use it in my b4 with 13.5 so not much stress on it but has been working good. Lifetime warranty though you can't beat that if you wanna spend the extra money for it.

Check the servo-saver.

It's the screw on the right steering post. Tighten it up, and your steering will tighten up.

If that's not your problem, get back to us

Thanks, I tried that but no luck. I took the horn off again and turned the steering assembly by hand and the same thing happens. When turning to the right, the inside of the right wheel almost hits the a arm but when turning left, the wheels only go about half as far

I bet you its the servo . I dont know what servo you use but i used a Hitec 7954sh on my Truggy and it never centered right which contibutes to it or gave a equal amount of throw on the left side of my RC8T on the steering.

Im not sure tighting the saver will do anything about. One thing it could be is if you have one wheel on one side with unequal toe in our out on the left side.
