This is by far the best weight I've seen for a 6500mAH pack that is suppose to stand up to 10+ minutes of hard racing

I plan on testing both the CRC 6500 race pack as well as the Orion 6500 CarbonPro 90c race pack this weekend for pro-series. I have a feeling I'm going to love both.

I think I'm going to need to start selling off some lipo's though now.. LOL maybe my 5400mAH 50c speedzones will have to go ;P
You'll love it....glad you got it. I couldn't believe the weight either...heck I waited for weeks because I always thought it would be too heavy. Didn't even look at them.

Just using that lipo and changing to 3800 brought my truck down from 6.13 to 6.5...still a fat lady by most standards, but sure is good to drive.

Does a SC10 4x4 body fit on a LOSI SCTE?

I was racing both an SC10 4x4 & SCTE.I just sold my SC10 4x4 and
kept the body because it lined up perfectly on the SCTE on the front
body mount holes I only needed to drill new holes for the rear mount.

Enjoy"

That's exactly how I did it too.

Question on steering servo....when you change to an outer more position. Does this make the steering slower and heavier?
I would try it, but truck is down for repairs...now I'm staring at it wanting to mess with it....LOL

I put diff fluid in the front & center & stock grease in the rear which takes
the most abuse in this truck IMO.

Took all 3 apart last night and the front/center had wore out sun gear
shims. The washers behind the planetary gears were pounded into the
back of the gears and the blocks.

The rear diff with stock gease had no wear on anything anywhere at all.
The whole diff looked like new except the grease was real blackish gray
in color.

So IMO the silicone diff fluid makes a great tuning tool but a crappy lube
for the diff parts.

All 3 diffs were new at the start of this test. I ran 40+ batteries through
it to get these results with AE SC10 2wd gear diff pins in all 3 diffs.

Food for thought"


Losi" PLEASE get us stock diff grease for
our diffs (ASAP) PLEASE"
I agree on the grease but would not say the diff oil is crappy lube . Most have been using it for years and years in 1/8 and 1/10 gear diffs and has worked great .

I understand what your saying, I've been running 1/8th buggy for 15 years.

But this does not make it a good lube, just a good tuning tool. Ask any lab
that does oil testing. I use to race full size cars & motorcycles and we did
testing on all kinds of oils and other lubes. Silicone is not a good lube
compared to other things avalible out there. I know this is why I did my
little test. I wanted to see for my self how much better the grease was
with my own eyes. I even put the grease diff in the worst possible spot where
it would get beat to death to give the silicone a fighting chance" lol"

The orion will easily make 10 mins, I get a lot more than that. I run it in my SC104x4 with Tekin 550 4.5 and got close to 20.

Are you running the aluminum arm? I ran my 1258 all the way out with an aluminum arm... Im now running a 1268 all the way out with the same aluminum arm. Felt like the 1258 didnt have enough tourqe on the carpet wall.

As a full size car racer, then you should know that performance components are meant for racing, my full size race engines go back to the shop after every race, if I get 510 miles on an engine built for a 500 mile race, I'm happy camper, and I apply the same rule for R/C cars, rebuild all silicone filled diffs after every race weekend (6 packs) gives me that peace of mind. Now for bashing around the backyard, grease would probably be OK.
I just wouldn't trade the performance advantages of silicon diff fluid for three sets of longer lasting diff gears.

while you're there and if you want to tinker with it dremel the front spindles and hub carriers for some holy crap steering i would say i got quiet a bit more steering throw from cutting the stops on the spindles/hubs. just see where they hit when you lock then side to side and take a little bit at a time. I have my jr/hitec aluminum servo arm all the way to the last 4th outter hole.

Are you serious? 6packs. Man that just takes the fun out of racing. I ran mine for 2 months(weekly racing) and the diff components are still is like new. If I had the tear this thing down after 6 packs I'd say it's not worth it.
