lift the vehicle off the ground so your wheels can spin (work stand etc). Move your throttle position forward to the point the wheels start to spin with when in neutral. Set the vehicle down and it shouldn't move on it's own, if it does dial it back just enough so it doesn't move yet the wheels will spin in the air. This will provide super smooth cornering and make even the strongest motors feel like silk. I've been doing this for a while w/ my 1/8 ebuggy and truggy's. This gives a feel of a clutch to any pinion setup.
That was how I learned to jump 4wd SC's...

I also still run with a little push control on the RX8.

Excellent tip !
I've driving BL and Lipo for nearly 7yrs and this is the first I heard of this, will try it tomorrow at the track.

Won't this be putting power to the speedo? Can't you burn the speedo up by doing this if you were to let it sit like that?

I guess if you left it that way all day. This is a race tip, not for bashers per se'. If you are a racer you turn your car on set it on the track and go.. the longest it sits idle is if your waiting for the amain horn to go off. When the race is over you turn your car off, and get your rear on the track to marshall.

If you are worried.. just bring up the setting on your remote and only use it when you need it, no rules to it.. ya know.

AWESOME tip. I have the castle 2650 on my SCTE and man that thing has some serious drag on it. This should be a great help, when I let off the throttle at the end of a straight I lose control every time, I started to drift kinda good at high speeds because of it, but it's impossible to drift perfect every time going 30+ MPH lol. Good stuff thanks a lot.

Found this site if anyone is looking at messing with their setups. The site has the final drive ratios for the scte in the drop down boxes. You can change kv for the motors as well as voltage and pinion sizes to get the desired results. I found I was way overgeared for our track and after messing with this my temps are under control. Go under speed calculators and then car/truck setup guide. You will find the losi scte listed there.

The site also has a bunch of other useful tools.

I think you got your truck from pegasus right? Check your diffs. I had mine explode on me this weekend. I pushed the crap out of it though. Wont be doing that again Cost me 149$ in replacement parts +Chris pins.

I picked up the Jammin Carbon shock towers for the SCTE, I hope these are stronger that the Losi machined aluminum ones. They are pretty thick i must say.
