Can anyone give a review on the TLR SC bodies?
TLR8060 and TLR 8061 in particular

The early ones were thin and you will find people complain about them not lasting so long. TLR has since fixed it and the bodies now quite a while. Obvoulsy your driving and how much time you spend upside down will still determine how long it lasts.

The one with the precut holes is worth the extra money as it can take a while to cut the holes out and make it look nice. For outdoor they certainly help quite a bit when wind and jumps meet up. Indoor the holes still help with handing of the body and with the car over jumps.

Yea I read the reviews on Amain, they're all bad reviews.. So you are saying since April they have fixed the thin lexan?

If I were you, I'd get the Hobbywing Xerun 4700kv sc motor. To me the 4000kv seems a little under powered when running against the 4700kv. Several in my area run the tekin 4600kv pro4 and the 4300kv pro4 hd and the 4700 HW stays with or walks the dog on the tekins.

Are you guys drag racing???R/C races are never won on the strait away,
I think the hd 4300 is way over kill ,I think the 4600,and HW 4700 run way too warm here when we race in the warmer months .To each his own!! The fastest Kid right now on the west coast in 4x4 SCT didn't even like the 4300 hd He will remain nameless cuz he runs for the other guys lol!!!!!Cheers!!

I had probably one of the early Losi bodies. They look really nice but I farted while waiting to put my truck down on the track and the body cracked. If they have toughened them up they are one of the better looking bodies out there.

I've found the FTW Diamondbacks are a really nice body. Low profile and some really nice lines!!

I don't have that ESC (running a HobbyWing 120amp) but I can confirm that this Tacon 550 4-pole is a great motor: http://www.hobbypartz.com/96m921-sen...66-kv4800.html

Normally 60$ but on sale for 50$ right now. I've been running it for a year in my SCTE and have been very happy.

Guys, I've been running my SCTE 2.0 for a few battery packs now and I've got some questions. I bent my chassis just in front of the rear differential housing, and broke the plastic rod end off the rear chassis brace. Noticed it when I tried to put the body back on and the holes didn't match the posts. Anyway, I've bent the chassis back so it's flat, but I do want to order a replacement. Is the Kingheadz better than the stock TLR chassis? I am planning on getting MIP's front and rear chassis braces at the same time. Hopefully this will alleviate the breakage and bending. Thoughts and advice?

I'm more of a basher than a racer and I'm pretty sure I bent the chassis off a jump that ended up with me doing some endos and cartwheels. I'm still learning how to drive this truck in the air. At first I did a lot of nose dives, but I've got that figured out pretty well now. I'm afraid of bending another chassis, so I just want the strongest set-up I can get.

I saw your question on the 2.0 thread, which might be more relevant to you.

I can personally say that the BCE chassis for v1.0 has been excellent. I have smashed into the approach side of jumps head on, landed flat on the apex of triple jumps, gone full speed into poles (I sound like a bad driver huh? ) and the BCE is still flat as a pancake. The original chassis bent quite a lot.

With the 1.0, because the BCE chassis is so stiff, they recommend sticking with the stock plastic factory braces to get better handling. You might possibly want to hold off from other braces until you give it a try with stock?

Has anyone tried putting Axial 2.2 Beadlock wheels on their SCTE? I thought it would look really nice on my MT converted SCTE but i am not sure if its gonna clear in the front. I know that it works on the Nexx 10sc. http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=192380

But i also know that it doesnt work on the Slash 4x4. The only other option is to go for some RPM wide crawlers which i know works but i cant glue tires for, ruined a few pairs in my days...

Yes, I accidently posted the question first, in the ART SCTE section. Whoops! But thanks for your response. I appreciate it. I will have to consider the BCE chassis a little more, since it sounds like it's more rigid than the stocker. You don't sound like a bad driver, but a driver that's more my style. Thanks again!
