Taking apart the truck and putting it back together isn't that bad as long as you don't take too many things apart at the same time, but I can see that stuff can get mixed up easily without an assembly manual and just an exploded parts view.

Also, I can't seem to find a supplier for the 5-40 x 1-3/4" screws?
use the ones from the ten-t, can't remember the part number tho and it is not in that trucks manual either. if you don't have the adjustable hinge pin holders you will need to get a spacer that will make the counter sunk heads mount flat. by the way the screws for the ten-t are higher quality than the ones that came on my scte

Actually the aluminum adjustable hinge pin holders are on their way to me now and should be here Friday. I'm confused by your comments though. The hinge pin holders dont look like they come with any screws, are you saying I will need different screws for them? As far as I know, the 5-40 x 1-3/4 screws for the rear are button head and go through the bottom of the rear bumper into the hinge pin holders.

Talking REPLACEMENT GREASE FOR YOUR DIFFS

Hey guys, Ive had a few emails from a few of you about the grease that i and 8ighte have been using in our diffs. We use it in our front and center diffs with 2000 in the rear it has been working with great results. if you are interested i have 15 ziplok bags ready to ship, each has enough to do 3 diffs maybe 4 . the downside is i have to charge because i buy this from my employer and its not cheap. so the going price would be $12.00 for 1 ziplok bag to rebuild 3-4 diffs. you may like it , or you may not, but with the few guys at our local track that are running it, we do. ill accept payment thru paypal as a gift. ( so i dont get hit with fee's and save you a couple buck's) if your interested in a tube which is 5.3 oz it is 29.00 and i have 2 of those available................thanks JMC23

PM ME IF INTERESTED PLEASE DONT POST ON THE BLOG.......

I'm using the following parts to enhance durability or lighten or the truck:
BCE SCTE chassis
Losi carbon fiber towers
Losi 8ight 2.0 Ti turnbuckles
Losi aluminum chassis braces
SNR carbon fiber hinge pin holders
APE Ti hinge pins
APE 8ight spring adapters, silver front and red rear springs
APE ChrisPins and hardened shims in the diffs, of course :^)
T-Bone racing TEN-T front and rear bumpers
DE Racing wheels
Blitz aluminum wheel hexes
OFNA aluminum wheel nuts
Cut down battery tray, mud guards and radio box

The only things I can think of to lighten the truck any more would be to replace the 550 motor with a 1410 and start replacing screws with aluminum or Ti.

I can't wait to get it on the track, too bad I'll have to wait until the end of the month. :^(



Chris
Thanx for posting the info on your set up and new chassis,
That sucks you cant run for a month !

Sucks Losi didn't go metric on this truck and instead waited til the 22.

At least they finally did it. Welcome to 1982, Losi.
Yea, it was a pain, I tapped almost every thing, But now I can use a 2.5mm hex for most of the screws. Im glad I did it, and would do it again if I bought another SCTE.
Losi should do a new model of the Truck that includes all they things they learn by reading this thread. In my mind , it would go a long way to restoring the image of "Losi". I know I would be one of the first to pre order it.

I can't wait until they do. Never had a problem with RPM parts.

Hey everyone that owns either the SCTE, 810 or Ten-T:

I sent Robinson Racing an email asking them to look into producing diff gears for our vehicles. I outlined the issues we have had as well as the availability issues. I also explained that the gears/diffs are interchangeable between vehicles and are the same part numbers. That is important because it probably isnt woth making parts that can only be used in one type of vehicle. Anyone who uses Robinson Racing pinion gears knows their hardened steel pinions are the best in the industry. If they make these gears in the same steel as their pinions, they will most likely be the very last gears you ever need. Lets get these made, I suggest that everyone send an email to them at [email protected] They've already replied to my email stating that they would look into it. Its up to us to show them that there is a demand for it and its worth the tooling and setup costs for them. Group effort here, let's "Get 'er done!"
