here is the set up,

hobbywing xerun 4700motor and esc combo
lowered the cut off to 2.8V
replaced the servo savox 1258
nothing binding, new bearings all around
running 14p and stock spur
the last thing I can think is the receiver but I never heard of a receiver draining the power that much.
motor temp 150 - 170
esc 112 - 120
battery took between 4900MAH and 5100MAH to recharge
diff front 7k mid 7k rear 5k

so I guess 8 min. is the best I can expect. weird part is that before I could get 10 min. runs no problem with your typical 5000mah batt.

if you guys have any suggestions by all means please let me know because I am about to throw this thing out the window.

Thanks.
Josh

Lower the LVC to 2.6 and go to a 12T -13T pinion, I didn't see what the ESC was set on. But try punch @ 1 and timing @ 1 and work ur way up. I run the same setup and can get 13min out of it on huge indoor/outdoor tracks.

Looks like BCE has closed shop. Website online store isn't working and contact email address from the website bounces back. Anyone know what the story is and if BCE chassis for the SCTE 1.0 are available anywhere?

The guy died. He was a 1 man show, as far as I understand. BCE is no more.

Only advice I can offer is to scour eBay.

Default which batteries and charger for losi ten scte rtr

I've made up my mind and going to order the losi ten scte rtr. Its been a while since I had rc cars and things have changed quite a lot especially with batteries.

I've contacted losi and they recommend ang 2S 50C lipo. That should now be straight forward but when I look on hobbyking the lipos in hardpacks from turnigy are in ranges either 50-100C or 65-130C. Which do i need, or recommend?

They also do a imax b6 or tunigy accucell6 balance charger which look reasonable. Any views on these please.

Is there any spares I need on day one for the tuck? I have a local store but they will usually have to order in.

This is my first post so go easy on me if I am covering old ground.

Thanks in advance.

You sound a lot like where I was 2 years ago. I got an SCTE and have really loved it and it got me back into RC in general. The higher the C rating the better, especially for this truck which is heavy and draws a lot of current.

I have been using the IMAX B6AC and it is fine. If you use a high MAH battery (ie >5000mah) then this charger is not as fast as others can be (as it maxes out at 5.0A), but will certainly do the job.

PM me and I can send you a quick guide that I wrote for some friends also new to RC who got SCTE's. It covers a lot of the ground you will want.

@applewood,

Looking forward to picking one up as well. I am digging through the for sale thread for a good rig!

Got a question about my new scte 2.0.

There seems to be a slight hesitation when it takes off. I looks and sounds like cogging but I have tried 2 brushless systems and both do it.

I am running mip puck system and BCE H1 chassis. I have read about slop in the factory drive train but nothing on the mip setup.

Any suggestions? Once it takes off it seems to run pretty good.

I should also note I did not build the truck. I bought it as a roller.

Check set screw on center drive shafts to ensure they did not back out. Only way to know for sure is tear it down. You need to do this on any used rig to prevent DNF and confirm condition of parts you can't see. My money is on center or rear diff. Out drive shims inside each diff are high wear items. Seem to wear faster on center diff, so that is a good place to start. The ring gear backlash is suspect if not shimmed for proper clearance Check to see how much play you have between ring gear and pinion. Should just be enough to notice slight amount of play. Check ring gear teeth with magnifying glass after you clean all the grease off. If it skipped teeth you will see damage. Let us know what you find. Could help others with same problem.

Before you check anything else try a different sensor cable or remove it completely (if your esc supports sensorless mode). Bad sensor cables fool me every time. Haha

All my systems are sensorless right now. But I tried 2 different systems with 2 different types of servos. The only thing I have not changed out is the receiver. It is a brand new spektrum.

I just realized 90% of this is the same as my 810 buggy. I think I'm going to buy all the parts and build myself a SCTE. looks like I can get everything for about $70 including tires and rims

make sure your battery isn't worn out. I have a turnigy battery that will stutter on a hard launch because the voltage cut off is kicking in.
when I run my good batteries its fine. this turnigy is now my starter box battery
