As for the hinge pins, as the arms wear in, you may need an additional shim, the SCTE 2.0 comes with 4 per side.
Thanks ,good to know

That looks way worse than the buggy wing even!!

Again it is up to the tracks and the race directors to put a stop to it on a local level or it will get out of hand.

Thumbs up My first sight of the TEKNO SCT410

I seen one of these Tekno sct410 run at the local hobby shop in the main races the other night and it was awesome, 3 complete laps ahead of the other at the end of the race with great times, It was set up out of the box as called for and it ran awesome with Losi, AE SC10, TeamC & Traxxas Slash 3 laps behind it...

Just my 2 cents worth...

Default No to spoilers/wings on short course trucks

I for one got into the hobby b/c these rc vehicles looked damn near identical to the bigger, stronger, fire breathing bretheren of modern day off road short course racing trucks!
Whimsical Whoops; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFHvu...rec_grec_index

The marriage of scale looks to exceedingly high scale performance is what got me into this rc racing class, deviating from this could eventually lead to the sct class demise. Sure there are no solid axels or gas motors, but the suspension
and other components make it more scale looking and performing than any other era in racing for this hobby.

I kick started my love to the hobby by bashing around an rc sct, than got into monster rc trucks to also bash with, than I went to the track with my 1st 2wd sct,
and eventually ended up moving into the hobby's facet of racing, which meant spending more for the high performance type of rc sct 's available in the market.

I feel that these trucks should be highly prohibited from using wings, b/c then where will the buck stop? Eventually, they will revert to the ufo looks of a stadium truck or buggy.
If you want that sort of thing than join a buggy or stadium truck class, and get your open wheels and wings tied up in a knot.
Just like the real 1/1 scale trucks, we have fenders which can allow for some inadvertent bumping and rubbing while sliding into a corner,
which usually equates for me to good ole clean racing fun with scale battles and action, which you cant really get or experience with the heavily popular open wheel vehicles that dominate our tracks, (hacking is not what i'm talking about).

If the short course buggy class were to ever take off, than i would most likely start racing a sc buggy. Dont get me wrong though, I do however
appreciate the engineering and performance that goes into the premier racing classes of this hobby, its just they just look like ufo's,
and that is a big reason why I dont race in those classes yet.

Have a SCTE TEN and LOVE it ! But looking for something else 4wd & lighter to bash around with some friends. Not for track racing. Just to have fun with. Have about a $500 limit, I have a radio and receiver. So almost ready to run or roller would do. Would like new.

+1 It's like it was copy/pasted. Back to regularly scheduled SCTE programming....

I'm assuming some folks on here have run the Avid Ackerman bars. I have a set coming in. Folks pretty happy with them? Run the short one on a relatively tight indoor track? Which holes on the bellcrank?
