now to my question, before i tear into this thing, i need the truck back together before this weekend and therefore dont need any surprises...other than the outdrives themselves what do i need to have on hand?
I'd snag a couple extra spacers for between the pins on the outdrives and the inside of the diff case, stock there is only the rubber seal and one spacer, at least two of my outdrives needed an extra on there, one needed two I think.. the rear outdrive on the center diff had the most play.

Figure out what diff oils you are going to run and have ready, then Just prey to not find any warn or damaged parts.

PS, jmc23 (Jim) at CRC had a great find.. too bad you are not closer. It's a diff grease!! He's already using it and it's basically stock consistancy.. I plan on swapping to it on my next rebuild. I run grease/grease/2k myself and love it.

He may have some kits available down the road, if there was interest.. maybe..

I got a question, I got the aluminum shock adjusters... well on the rear shock bodies I cant get them past like a couple scrolls, but the front were successful.

Since I will be getting my SCTE Friday and after hearing about the Diff pin issue would there be a way to tell if the truck has updated pins without taking them apart?

Like could I call Losi and give them the S/N which would tell the date it was built and find out that way? I am not sure how long ago the diff pin issue was corrected or how long the truck has been on the shelf.

Losi gods...........Finally won three diffs on ebay from the ten t. Question is, are the ten t diffs any better than the scte diffs?. I plan on using my current chris pins, new hd lightned outdrives, and any extra shims that may be needed. My goal is to have no more diff leaks or super wobbly outdrives.

i agree....it almost seems like they never took that into consideration what the stock measurements are. the snr carbon is not a direct fit needs minor modification to fit correctly......muck!! but maybe worthn for others for weight reduction.

Pins are about the same, everything else is golden. Replace the pins and you are good to go.

you might need to swap the diff case on the front from one of your SCTE cases. i found out yesterday that at some point there was a "running change" in the diff cases. my ten-t diff case did allow the front bumper to be mounted properly. it required dremeling.

I think the mold is worn out for the gears, either Ten-T or SCTE. The only gears that seem super durable are from OLD ten-T diffs, from months ago. Everything "new" seems to be having issues.

i hope you're right. in the next week or two i'll be tearing into my diffs (OLD ten-t) to install new chris blocks and shims and HD outdrives. i hope to find little to no wear in the gears (i put chris pins in before i ran it, but it was a used truck).

All my diffs are from Ten-T's from about 10 months ago. I've never had any gear problems. I hope you are as lucky as I have been

Ok Quick and easy questions...


Which bodies fit the truck properly?

Which rear chassis brace mod is working the best?

and if i just bought my truck it should be ones with better diff pins yes?


8ight-e - is this grease a special blend or will he sell it online?

Most anything for a Blitz or SC10 will fit , most need a little trimming of the front wheel wells .

I just did the stock plastic rear brace from an RC8 and it was a perfect fit and isnt much heavier than stock .
