True that. I'm fairly new to racing these. I'm just looking for a good truck for the track. Something with lots of adjustability.

When you rebuild the hd diffs, do you put anything on the blue gaskets (green slime, etc)? Doing the change to diff fluid. Thanks!

Nothing is needed with the HD diff cases. Only the blue gasket.

That's totally dependent on what makes it "rtr".

Bashing or racing? The RPM A arms are really not necessary on this thing. If you can break one of the stock A arms you are doing something special. The 3800 kV Castle motor isn't terrible. It can be raced but it isn't very smooth. The MMP ESC is capable of either racing or bashing. It's not the greatest ESC ever made but it is definitely versatile and can run either sensored or unsensored motors. I started with an MMP and it worked fine but I eventually replaced it with an awesome Viper VTX8. The Savox 1258 is a pretty popular servo in these things. My $0.02...

Default Losi SCTE RTR loses power after 7/8 minutes

My son races a Losi SCTE 1.0 RTR at our local track. Yesterday, he lost power (the truck quit responding to throttle input) after seven or eight minutes. The problem recurred using three different known-good LiPo batteries.

Thinking the truck might be overheating, I checked the ESC fan. It's working.

Any idea what else I should check?

How hot was the heatsink on the esc after the run?
What batteries did you use, what were the voltages before&after?

Is the ESC sensored? I had the sensor wire come out on my once. Maybe it's loose?

Probably hit low volt cutoff. That's where "dtr" was going with his line of questioning.

I bought TLR5276 diff oil (2k, 5k, 7k) instead of TLR5277. Does it make a difference if I use TLR5276? I didn't think so, but I figured I would ask folks in the know.

I planned to use 7k in the front, 7k in the center, and 2k in the rear for an indoor high bite track.
