Interesting, but they don't give any ratings on the viscous. I wonder if it's a lot like this:

It is an Aluminum Top Plate or front triangle as I usually call it and it will suffice to stiffen up the front end a little and helps steering be a bit more accurate.

It is already in stock.

Guys. The 8ight and the Ten platforms DO NOT SHARE PARTS other than screws.

Losi has made of of these for the 8ight for a long time.

What I have realized, is the top/tower shock bushings stays are causing the binding. The rear shocks are at somewhat of an angle (from the arm to the shock standoff). With the stock shock bushings/stays, its causing the shock not to be able to free.

I decided to drill out a 22 shock bushing (to fit over the stock screw), and now the shock is ALOT more free on compresssion.

Curious if anyone else is using a different shock bushing (on the tower).

You just need to make sure you don't over tighten the upper shock nut. This is true for all RC that use a plastic upper shock bushing. You don't need to crank these down. The stock ones work great.

So after watching the 2.0 Horizon Hobby video I had a question. Are the spindle blocks the same on the 2.0 and only the caster blocks are different. I hope so because I have $40 aluminum spindles on my SCT. After hearing them talk about the improvement in weight transfer while turning I want that. I have always felt there is too fine of a line on rear traction while in a turn on the 22 SCT. I hope I will only need a $12 caster kit.

What other bodies are you running on your SCTE 2.0? I tried a Proline body and I really like it, it seems to be much thicker than the original; however this Proline body requires a lot of trimming around the wheels to get it to fit and it still doesn't fit all that good. It was designed for the Slash and SC10 and listed the SCTE.
