Besides the diff pins, are there any weak parts on this truck?

I've had a Losi 8ight before and that was just about the most bulletproof buggy I've ever owned.

I am running D8 shocks, very similar shocks. I love them they are a direct bolt on with no mods really. I pulled my stock shocks off when I bought it new they sold in one hour on the ebay for 50.00 so very hot item. Also I think I am running like 30 or 35 wt oil in them. they fit much better than they did in my slash 4x4, it's like riding on air shocks or something the thing just lands soo smooth. I think it's a great hop up and one that can really improve jumping. I can't say enough good about them personally. Ill post a pic if I have one.

Default HELP!

Anyone know which side of the rear diff the thin shim goes? I pulled my diff apart and can't remember which side it goes on. The silly parts diagram for this car is just about worthless. It doesn't show the shim, nor does it address it in the manual.

Someone please answer quickly. I'm trying to put my car back together and get ready to race.

Shims almost always go behind the ring gear to push it closer too the pinion gear .

A few people did this mod early on if you go back or search.. green springs dont recall the limiters but I would guess in line w/ the basic setup droop. For most the additional weight added did not justify the bulky 8ight parts, the stock shocks work great and are very durable. If you are running a 3s lipo setup don't worry about the weight though.. it's mostly us guys running 2s systems that are already at the max weight for these 550 motors who want cooler temps and or longer run times.



On another note has anyone tried the Associated X12L, 4.5 550? Wow on paper this is the motor I've been looking for.. beefed up 13mm rotor and only 4700kv. This should be great, with those specs it maybe the coolest running mod motor you can buy, at least right now. I have one coming to test out at any rate. Snagged from towers w/ coupon.

i run on a hard, dusty, tight track with alot of ruts. there's not a ton of traction there. I was thinking about running 2/5/2 diff fluid on a novak 3700kv ballistic. is this too light?

any help is greatly appreciated.

Anyone having to tighten up the servo saver after a couple runs? Does it seem to loosen off? Havent ran mine yet and was just wondering if I should pull it apart and tighten it down before I run it.

+1 its like air ride. I love my D8 shocks... I only bash right now...alot of the times on the street. Here in my part of CA the curbs are rounded. I usually hit my son's skateboard ramp into the grass, fly off the grass off the curb then into the street and you would think its didn't even come off the curb. It just rests nice and stable even at med speed. I'm using the tutorial on D8 shocks " For the rear, build the D8 shocks normally, but use the longer D8T rod ends. Use the medium pistons and 32.5 wt losi shock oil with HB grey springs" .....also for the front I'm using HB grey springs with 35 weight Losi oil .

Droop and camber are often over looked tweaks to get that little last bit out of your truck. Start playing with it to see how it effects things as they can be good last minute adjustments to make on the car during warm up if you have a buddy with the tools standing by!



Other then people pointing out they wiggle I have not heard of any failures related to the movement of the diffs? Someone correct me if I am wrong?



They did not get rid of the engineers but they stopped using sportworks parts in there Losi designs!



Ouch. Please never use Stike-SCTE in a post again. The strike was never fun to drive. The SCTE is a great handling car and a blast to drive!



Yes the Ten-T, 810, and Ten-SCTE all share towers. Losi recomends the carbon towers for the SCTE if you upgrade.



This truck will jump a little nose down naturally. Are other cars having issues with jumping as well or only your SCTE? I ask as some jumps just kick you nose down. Sometimes hitting them at a slight angle helps with this as well. Small jumps can really kick over cars as well. Speed bumps are the worst!



The Ten pins are what losi has been sending out as interim pins. They are harder then what was coming in the SCTE but not up to the spec Losi asked for. The Ten pins are lasting quite a while in the SCTE but will start to show wear in the rear diff after about an hour of use. Not significant wear but you will feel a notch forming.



The Ten pins should last long enough for the final pins to come in.



Guys this is not a strike 2. The diff pins are a material issue and will be fixed soon. I get the frustration and again no one wants this issue put behind them and getting you guys out on the track more then Losi does. Those with bad gears the gears will not be back in stock until they get the right pins made for the gear sets. That is the delay there. This is getting full attention and will be resolved soon.
Thanks for answering all the questions Casper,your the reason I went ahead and bought this Puppy And just ordered my 22 buggy!!! Can't wait to build that sucka My first Losi was a JRXT, and back then we just beat the crap out of everything till it broke then fixed it
