much of a difference between the snr towers and the losi graphite ones? the snr ones are cheaper, so i'm leaning that way.

After hearing of people even bending the aftermarket losi aluminum towers, you have to go with the carbon 4mm losi towers. Its a little more but you will never break them.

So far my luck with this truck has been very bad, some the part of the truck, some the part of bad electronics. I bought my truck on March 19th and it hasn't actually ran a full battery through it yet! As soon as I got it I ordered the hardened diff pins from Chris Atterbery and replaced them a few days later. After about two weeks the truck was ready to go. I played around the yard for a bit dialing in steering and adjusting radio settings. Took it to the track and made a few warm up laps and the battery went dead. put in a charged battery and went out for a few at speed laps when the capisitor went up in flames. Sent the system back, waited for a new one, finally got it in and not even 30 seconds in another capisitor up in flames. While I was waiting on the third system, I put my Castle system in the truck and it ran great until the center diff locked up and totally destroyed everything but the hardened diff pins. Still waiting on replacment gears that have been on back order for a month or longer now.

Needless to say i'm very upset with this truck right now. If Losi can't start getting parts on the market soon, I'm going to start looking at the AE 4x4.
Atleast you can get parts for it!

no I run OFNA diff oil but I use the mobel 1 grease on the out drives to seal the oil in.

Yep, everything is in place for sure. The more I spin it by hand though the better it's getting. It's really not that bad, just seems I can feel the teeth a little more than what I'm used to. I was running my Jammin SCRT10 on Thursday. Pretty certain that's the last time I'll drive it. Should have this thing ready to go tomorrow. Can't wait to get it on the track!

Quick question and i think the answer is yes.


took a jump a little wrong yesterday, an now my body doesnt fit right..

Looking at the rear shock tower there seems to be a little bend in it.

Im gonna assume that the shock tower doesnt actually bend like that and its supposed to be flat. so did i tweek the shock tower?

Q for racing Guru's, I'm trying to decide which WT diff fluids to try first in my SCTE.

Our local tracks are generally a on the small side and tight, loose and dusty is the normal track condition. Should I go with 5/5/3 , 3/3/2, 3/3/1 or grease ?

I drove my buddys SCTE with 5/5/3 and I really liked it but could something else be a wiser choice ???

Thanks for any input

sounds like you bent the rear shock tower, maybee the rear of your chassis plate. most likely the shock tower. cf front and rear towers are a must.

The snr carbon towers are holding up great on mine, 16 batteries on them on indoor clay, plenty of crashes! Ya, if the body isn't going on right then you bent the tower. Bend it back, order carbon!

I'm no guru, but I am going away from 5/5/3 to 5/10/3 or maybe 5/7/3. It needs more center and less front action. This is the beauty of tuning with diff fluids. I will go through front tires much less quickly, I'm sure.

I hear ya, In my 4s powered Tekno 8 I'm running 5/7/3 and 3s powered E-810 I run 5/5/3 but figured since the SCTE will be 2s powered MMP&1410 I was thinking with so much less power I should consider going with the ligher fluids ? This is my first 2s powered track RC I'm a little perplexed.
THX for the thoughts.

I went from 5/5/2 to 5/7/2 and it really made a differance in front tire wear.
