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!"
It would be awsome to have some gears from them.. Good idea scott just sent them a email

I started with a Proline Militia, lasted a few track days. I painted the stock shell and used 2.5oz of shoe goo. Still using the lid and it has almost no cracks. I Shoegoo'd body savers under the front holes. I use the SNR towers which have the body mounts built in, there is zero flex like with the stock post, the holes get hammered. It's held up pretty good with the goo on there.

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
Chris,
Do you know how much of a weight savings the aluminum chassis braces are vs. the stock ones? Did you have any issues using the aluminum braces on the BCE chassis?

I'm running the JConcepts One Size Fits Most, Raptor Body on mine. It's held up really well. I put drywall tape and shoo goo in the critical areas to strengthen it and I also made the holes for the body mounts wider than they need to be. This allows the body to move slightly during flex. It's a trick that I learned from my 1/8th scale and it works very well. I ruined the stock body on my first day out with it, yet continued to run it for about 3 weeks until my Raptor Body was painted. Very first body I ran was the Proline F-150 body that fits the Slash 4x4. I took it off my slash and had to make new mounting holes and cut the wheel wells a bit, but it fit pretty decently as long as you dont mind cutting into the body a little. Most bodys that'll fit the Blitz will fit the SCTE.

This is my JC Raptor Body on it now. I also just picked up a Proline Flo-Tek body but have to give it to my painter to do up for me.

that's weird. i'm running the proline F150 off my slash 4x4 also. for me, the holes lined up perfectly (i also had to hack up the fenders though).
