NO communication and these were noted as in stock when I ordered.
similar story here, my order had issues an I had to spend quite a bit of time and effort to get them to communicate with me

you can't call them, and they're very slow to email. I think they basically say, we're cheap so we don't need to have any service.... I'd rather pay a couple bucks more and have at least a little service.

Nanotech 6000 DO NOT FIT MOST TRUCKS they are about 5/8 of an inch too long compared to a std battery..
i managed to get them into my slash 4x4 and they will fit the losi with all the stops removed but they are NOTm regular sized more of an airplane batt i think.
also they could chill with the wire. its like 8 gauge... wayyyyy tooo much wire it really hard to solder its so big and comes with bullets
dim
47mm w
21mm hi
153mm long
again they will fit most but not all
deffy not in a sc104x4 thats for sure i measured those numbers from my packs

I know some were having trouble. Just to lend a different perspective. The same time everyone was complaining, I ordered two of the 40C ones (I didn't know the 50C's existed) anyway, I got order confirmation immediately, shipping confirmation later that same day and got the batteries I think three days later. I have never had a problem with them.

I have bought quite a few batteries and a charger from them with no problems. But I always made sure they had them in stock.

I just got mine today (surprise) and it's great looking.. swapped in those pins the guy is making on here, kept the center and rear grease, swapped the rear to 3k fluid. I've been told to run some w/ the grease first, I guess many are liking it more than the oils.. Anyway here she is, granted I didn't leave it whole for more than 10minutes The only bad thing is I know tomorrow when I run it my rear hubs are going to pull off the rear a-arms the moron who is pulling them from the mold is taking off WAY too much material. If they were to spec, they might be pretty good. Darn.. Guess I'll hitup losi when I call for the 'upgraded' replacement pins.

Sorry no weight yet, she is lighter.. also is a shot of the ten-t front carbon tower from integy.. actually looks prety nice, more options to mount as well.

First shots are the new and improved battery/esc tray.. cut a nice chunk off, lowered it 1/8" to the chassis as well. (had to tim nubs on the center plate and 2nd hole on whats left of the mud guard (just the excess). Went ahead and just cut off the mud flaps and sides of the rear bumper as well.
You should pick up some tekno steering servo towers and be the first? to to that mod and get rid of that rx/box.




Also I dont understand why people having bumper problems. What the heck are you guys doing?? long darting the tripple? This truck seems tough to me.

Thanks to Chris Attebery for the awesome replacement pins, I will keep the ones Losi is sending for spares.

Stock shocks are #3 pistons with what is about 30wt oil. (factory oil and genuine losi oil are not extactly the same).

I don't remember the stock kick up but if you get adjustable mounts all 0's is stock.

Rear is 3 deg of toe and 2 deg antisquat. Again all 0's for adjustable mounts is stock.

Also your rear link is on the b? The link doesn't appear to have enough threads to hold that position w/o issues.. did you replace that link w/ a longer one?

Do you guys have any limiters in your rear shocks?

Thanks!
Again stock piston is a #3 with about 30wt.

There should be plenty of thread to hold in all positions.

The grease is not for lubrication (it does that too) but it is in there to slow down the gears so you need to pack it in and not just coat the gears.

Just picked up my truck and looking forward to getting it running...How do you go about getting the custom pins. Also is that the only upgrade needed prior to really running the truck. Thanks guys
