I agree. The stock shock seals work great and last if you keep the shock boots in good shape. Boots are needed if you run on dusty tracks or outdoors.

Do not run the boots,notice they were not carried over to the 2.0 ? The boots cause binding in the travel of the shock!!!!!! Cheers!

The boots do require some thought so they can flow a little air. They are so flimsy there is no way they can hinder the suspension. Just take a small screw driver and gently pull boot to the side in the spring cup slot so there is a very small gap. Rarely have to fix them. On dirty tracks you can still get a year or two out of shock seals and shafts show no wear. I know it is a pain at first, but pays for itself over time and gets easier as well. If your track is clean you may not need them.

Yes Sir, just facts. I do understand and respect your point. A few times over the past 30 years of my RC life I felt boots were not needed. However, for harsh conditions I was wrong.

I still have a couple of my RCs from the 80s that were ran 4 days a week for 3 years on out door tracks and the shafts show no signs of wear with boots. Wall hangers now, but track ready. I have a few scared up SCTE shafts that only lasted 4 months and leaked like a $20 RTR.

As I said, its not for everyone. I apologize if I offended you in some way. Just sharing my experience that might be helpful to others

Team Associated 13mm shock boots (ASC91070) fit perfect on the Scte and are great for loamy/wet tracks to keep your shock oil clear. Won't hinder performance at all.

Blitz sized bodies fit with the least trimming. SC10 bodies fit but require more trimming.
PM me with any TLR SCTe win and I will post you here.
Anyone who has been reading the thread knows the diff pins on the first shipment of trucks have diff pins that are to soft for brushless power. Losi has updated the pins in the second shipment. If you suspect you have the older pins, contact Horizon Hobby (877) 504-0233, they will send you new pins free of charge. We don't need you to post about how pissed you are, we get it... It happened to all of us.
Diff Pins
The diff pins in the truck have been fixed in the seconds shipment of trucks. If you would like aftermarket pins, I suggest using Chrispins ([email protected]) or visit his forsale thread located here - http://www.rcshortcourse.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=18851
Diff pin length
24 mm long 3mm thick and the grove in the middle is 3mm long and 1.5mm deep
Chassis droop screws
Keep an eye on your chassis where your droop screws hit the stops. The small screws will chew down the chassis over time and cause premature wear. You can prevent this by installing 4-40 x 4mm Droop Screws (part#LOSA6253) http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=LOSA6253
Servo Saver
From the factory check your servo saver for tightness, we have seen this comes loose and causes steering issues. Red loctite seems to be the fix, blue loctite just doesn’t hold over time.

I am new to the SCTE and RC in general. I just got back from my track where I had a strange problem like my SCTE had a slipper clutch that was way too loose. I know the SCTE doesn't have any clutch. I was clearing jumps earlier in the day just fine and then later I didn't have nearly the acceleration. Batteries were fine. Any help is appreciated.

Himmelberger, it sounds like you are running in "2wd mode".

One of your drive shafts may have come loose... Check the connection of the coupler of the center CV shafts, probably the front-center to the front diff. It might be as simple as tightening the set-screw on the coupler. However, if it was running loose for a long time, it may be that a pin flew out (Part No. B3556).

Center Drive shaft set screw came loose ? Melted a diff ? Missing a CV bone ?

Time to get inspecting.
