Hey Chazz! Hope all is well, I'm going to give you a shout if you're at the shop today. Been a few weeks since we talked and I KNOW you guys have been crazy busy so hopefully you'll have a few minutes to catch up. Looking forward to getting my CF so I can continue to fuel the order flame!
Thanks!
Joe

Ran mine for the first time today. It was dialed. Definitely made the right choice by picking it up.

Hi All, I've been tied up the last few days, finally get a chance to check back in with the world and low and behold, my truck has become famous. I race most every week with Chilly and he couldn't wait to get some pics and ask questions.

I've only been able to race it once since getting it together and all I can say is, WOW. It is very fogiving, very smooth, very neutral. I had TQ with it until finally round and then driver error jumped up bit me. Started second in the main and got owned pretty bad in the first lap(pretty much in last) and had to drive back up through the pack. Only made it back to 3rd. We had some motor and gearing issues that have been corrected(17.5 blinky), can't wait until Wednesday night, revenge.....hehehe

Had about 5-6 different guys drive it that night. Everyone had the same thing to say, how smooth it was and how easy it was to drive consistantly. The truck is awesome, I would highly recommend this to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for building a truck that has brought me back to racing SCT again, really enjoy having this one in the stable......Troy

Any idea of an under tray cover that may or may not be built for this truck? I know with the motor on the inside, it would heat up but I could see if there was a lot of dirt getting in there, a lot worse things could happen. Just thinking of loamy tracks at the moment

We've not had issues with dirt, at least not so far. The SCX - 60CF is very slim, and the wide SC body means that, to seal out dirt, you would need a very wide, and probably floppy, undertray.

I think SitckIt 1 is making or can make an undertray that protects the CF chassis from scraping on the ground. Speedy Dad knows Brian well and perhaps Dad can comment.

There is no hole in the bottom of the SCX - 60CF chassis for motor cooling as there is on may 4WD cars, so putting a protective film or cover on just the chassis would have no effect on motor cooling.

Default Sold Out Again!

Amazing! Our Family is just amazing, and you guys have done it again.

Over the weekend we received orders from the Dealer Family that sell out the entire second production run of SCX - 60CFs!

If all goes well, the second run will begin shipping late this week. We will order an even bigger batch of CF for the third run, and keep busy!

Thank you!!!!!

With how light this truck is, is there going to be a huge need for the K BB shocks or do you think the V2 shocks from the FT SC10 will suffice for the time being? I'm thinking they should, but figured extra opinions are always welcome ;p

My truck is around 2180g ready to run with a saddle pack, big bores and normal electronics. Small bore shocks and a shorty lipo will probably put you under the ROAR limit.

The BB shocks are definitely not a must. The AE V2 shocks will work just fine.

I agree with Chris, they are not a must.

Smile A Small Thing

I know it is a small thing but it was really nice to go to my LHS SRS Hobbytown, Scottsdale AZ and pick up a X Factory top shaft I needed.

No time on the computer and waiting with a transmission apart on the kitchen table. (My wife is nice enough not to require cleanup each night).

No mailing costs and it is in my sweaty hands right now.

A small thing but was really nice.
