Thanks!
I remember asking the same question 1.5 years ago, so glad I can help someone else in the same position.

They are the same size as the ones that hold the front bumper in place, so 8-32 x3/8 flat head screws (LOSA6264).

Be aware that the wider stance will not be suitable for competition though as it will be beyond the maximum width permissable.

Hope this helps!
That is helping brilliantly, thanks a lot !

FWIW, I thought my Slash was the shizz until I drove a friend's SCTE at the track. It IS still a fun basher though.

I new to the scte and racing. I race on carpet and am having trouble with driving hard through the tight corners without rolling over. I am running the sway bars. I run 35 shock oil and black spring on front. I have 27.5/silver on rear. inner and bottom camber link. ride height it 27mm. 1 degree camber. I was going to try and use the carpet setup on Losi's site, but it is only 14mm ride height. There is no way I could run that without bottoming out.

Good afternoon guys, I'm in the market for a Losi SCTE and I have some basic newbie questions:

1: How many teeth are on the stock spur?
2: What is the proper wheel (offset) to use on the SCTE?
3: Necessary/must have upgrades?

bottoming out is ok just don't want to chassis slap or make you flip over/bounce off track on landing to much

Bottoming out is not a bad thing. Run the Dustin Evans setup for carpet. His truck looked like it was on rails. Carpet is so high bite you have to get the car low so it will not roll over.

1: 40
2: Most call it zero offset but most companies make wheels for the SCTE and say so on the lable.
3: Only thing most agree is a "must" is carbon towers as the stocks may bend in a hard crash. Other stuff is for tuning options. Upgrade the outdrives to the HD lightened after the stock ones wear out. Obviously there are a lot of parts that you can upgrade but the argument for Necessary/must have is up to each driver.

What is your thought on the sway bars? I have been told to take the sway bars off as this will free the truck up. Won't that make the rolling over worse?
Also, are the black silver and gold springs the same as the ones in the tlr spring kit?

I was using gold springs, 50wt, heavy swaybars, really really low rideheight and schumacher minipins on carpet. Worked wonderful, it was really stiff and hardly ever traction-rolled.

The Evans carpet setup is definately the right direction to go. Lower ride height and stiffer sway bars will help with rolling over. You may want to try the upper hole on the tower for the front upper tie rod. This will reduce the aggresiveness of the steering.
No sway bars will definately cause more chassis roll=more likelt to roll over.
To help achieve a lower ride height you will need to cut a couple of coils off either the stock springs or the option rear springs. They are just too long for this low a setup. I remember cutting 2 coils off the stock black rear springs when I first raced the truck on carpet. I ran the cut portion of the spring "up" as i was worried the cut side would easily pop off the spring cup if mounted with the cut side down.
The schunmachers are notorious for traction rolling and it is normal to see folks trim off the outside two rows of pins on all four tires to slightly reduce it.

No need to cut up springs, just use front springs in the rear.

Swaybars would be a must for me on carpet. Stiff then what we normally run as well.

Yup i know where your coming from i race on a Carpet indoor track also. The main thing that will have the biggest effect of helping rollovers is the turning the drop screws in front and Rear. I have my where in the front the screw is just touching underneth and the Rear is almost touching.

Ride height i dint use a gauge so my is where the rear arms are level and the front are barely leveled yea theres no way i could run that low also not with the jumps at my track. The 1 degree camber is right on .

Shock oil im using 40w/4 hole and 32 1/2 /3 hole Rear . Springs i actually tried the Blue springs up front and that helped a lot all around steering etc.

Rear spring is a Meduim black spring im going to try a Silver color one .

Sway bar i actually loosen the set screws on my and the rear also but im going to try out some stiffer ones Front and Rear The Camber link i been running the upper hole but im going to try the bottom one.

And Tires play the biggest roll and not flying into turns.
