How does everyone route their esc receiver wire? Under the battery tray on next to the motor?

I ran the wire under the bat tray to the front then used a 4 in ext to the battery box. that way if your running the rx 8 speed control you can un plug the ext and plug in the hot wire. if you dont care or are not running the rx 8 just make sure you run it where it dont get smashed or messed up with all the endows your going to put it through.

Well just wired mine, did through the first loop on the battery tray then under the front chassis brace then squeezed through the center mount into the box with less than an inch to spare It looks semi tidy and I can still hook up my programming link. Now I just need to solder up this bec.

Want to say thank you all for the help that I've gotten on here. Took first place in novice at my local track. Only 3-4 laps down from the fast guys in SC open class. Only problem I had was, when I rebuilt the front end, I left the servo savor loose and it worn out pretty fast. ended up driving like cow during the main. It would push really hard on right turns but be perfect on left hand turns.

Hi I have a RTR 1.0 KIT with about 3 months of running on it . I notice the out drives are wearing out. Are you guys changing to the 2.0 diff's an out drives an are they interchangable?

yes and yes, the updated diffs are a good idea, and the hd outdrives are also great thing to upgrade to.

Have you guys had issues with the center diff bearing in the stock motor mount not lasting long ? Im using Avid double sealed yellow seal bearings and its just one bearing thats in the alum motor mount that seems to last about 9 runs . The bearing seems ok but it sounds like its dry though but the diff spins fine.

When I rebuilt my truck after getting it from the PO, one of the diff bearings felt fine free spining in the truck, until I pulled it apart and it crumbled in my hand. That rear bearing is going to see more stress on it compared to the front because its rigid mounted. The front has a little bit of flex with the plastic diff stand. The rear has no flex so its going to see more force.

I would imagine upgrading to the king heads front diff stand would help keep flex down. Plus you would have the bonus of double bearings on the front diff.

Thats my next planned maintence item is a set of avid bearings, would you suggest getting the revolutions all the way around? I was thinking of getting the metal sealed bearings for the steering and maybe getting ceramics for the diff cases.

I would get revolutions for steering as well as dirt gets in there too.

Well after looking at all the sexy pictures of the BCE hybrid chassis. I went ahead and ordered it, plus the 2.0 battery hold down. So I will pretty much have a 2.0, only thing left would be to upgrade the servo mount.

Cant wait to get the glory that is the BCE chassis. Does any one know of chassis film for the scte besides the TLR stuff.

You're going to love your new truck. Drives so balanced with the new BCE chassis.
