If that is whats posted, then its a typo. We all run the 40T spur. There is no 42. I filled all those out so that would be my mistake if that is whats on there. Also, none of us run the RX8 although I would if I could afford it, lol. So, not sure where you got that but I'd be interested to see.

looking into carbon fiber next. which is better in everyones opinion SNR or losi shock towers?

"stand offs" is that the chassis brace?
several options for carbon towers, losi's are the lightest I'm aware of, and no durability issues to boot.

losi sells 1 piece shock stand offs to replace the stock screw and nut stand offs. I guess thinking about it nobody has really discussed them much. Worthy snag imo.

PS JUST TO NOTE.. Using a different spur reduces gearing options and is no different than dropping a tooth on ur pinion.

just my 2c

I am using the 8 2.0 spur. You have to dremel the opening slightly and shim the center diff standoff to about 2mm total. It's very easy.
I'm not sure what the 42 tooth spur is from but I would guess it is for the 8 also.
Sorry to bother but could you post some pics if possible? What opening are you referring to?? In the chassis?? The same screws from the diff will fit and hold this gear correctly?? Sorry for so many questions.

Well Well" I got to see an AE SC104x4 factory driver (Steve Antill) run
against a Losi SCTE factory driver (Kyle popcorn Johnson) at 702 R/C
raceway in Vegas last night.

Kyle TQed and won the main but IMO the Losi lost punch in the 7 minute
main with about 2 minutes to go. Kyle was running a Novak 4.5 with a stock
12 mm rotor and a 14 tooth pinion 6000 mah battery. He says it comes off
the track at 180 which I find very hard to believe because the Losi strugled
to make jumps after the 5 minute mark that it made with ease for the first
5 minutes. I run a 12 tooth and I come off at 170 to 180 depending on
temps in side the building. Kyles truck looked to be well over 200 dgrees
because I've had my Novak over 200 once and it acted just like Kyles. Very
soft and lazy once hot.

Kyles truck worked great, he ran stock grease in the diffs with silver springs
all 4 corners. It did handle better then the SC104x4 (corner speed) jumping
was about the same both trucks. The AE looked twitchy and loose all the
way around the track. In all fareness to Steve he had only raced the SC10
once before this.

One thing nice about the SC104x4 is it is a 25 year old provin design. IE:
MIP gold tub RC 10 4x4 conversion back in the 80's was basicly the same
car as this SC104x4 but with a chain drive (no belts yet back in those days)
So even though AE claims it is all new from the ground up it is not,it's a
revamp of the old MIP conversion kit for the original RC 10. Not knocking
this at all because the MIP RC 10 was a great car. Funny thing is it handles
alot like the old MIP RC10, almost identical in fact..Which is pretty darn good
IMO.

Steves truck never showed any signs of slowing or getting lazy towards the
end of the main at all. The SC10 4x4 was a rocket start to finish. IMO the
SC104x4 looked more like a really fast 2wd truck just like the old MIP AE car
did back in the 80's. The Losi looks and drives like a 4x4 it looks nothing like
a 2wd going around the track.

In traffic the light weight of the SC10 lets it get beat up and tossed around
from bumping by other trucks, the Losi is rock solid in traffic.

I like them both and will probably own both when the SC10 comes out,just
because they are both cool in their own way and their both old provin design
trucks. Nothing new from either company but both rock solid refined old
design's and theres nothing wrong with old good designs IMO

The race was great to watch and I'd like to thank both Kyle and his Dad for
all the help with my SCTE and the use of their tires for my B main. Great
people very friendly..Also Steve from AE was very nice answering everyones
questions about the SC104x4 also very friendly to everyone.

Great drivers,great trucks tons of fun....

I'm sorry, I mean the Tekin Team Drivers. Sorry for the confusion.

FangsCPO, unfortunately I don't have enough posts to post pictures. The opening that must be dremeled to a larger size is the hole in the center of the spur gear that slides over the diff case. You only need to remove about 1 or 2mm. Other than opening this hole up, everything else bolts up with the same screws that were used before.
You may need to dremel a tiny bit off of the top spur cover. I did but others didn't.

Not the best by far, but fun none the less. The track was pretty loose. I actually had the stock tires on.
