Shows how much faith MIP has in their products that so much of their stuff for the SCTE is discontinued.
You can find them. Might take a while. They sold thousands of them. The 3.0 braces will likely fit with little mods and they should be one time buy as well. I see that as Losi/TLR fixing the issue for good.

Wow. I run the original plastic ends on mine for two summer and one winter seasons without any issues, and it took quite a few hits.
Simply installed the set screw into the rod ends carefully, then put threadlock on it and screw on the aluminum rod.

Yes, that is possible. It is very dependent on track and driver ability. Go to an out door track with 40ft triple and race main with 14 guys looking for the checker. If top 5 are clearing it you must do it for a shot at podium. Even a clean driver will get bumped or hit a hole you cant see sometime. On most small to medium club tracks its not much of a problem to race all season with one body and no spare parts used. The 1/8 scale tracks are not so friendly at events like AMS and others.

I just bought a new 4x4 sct troy lee ..

the both rear blue shock body has slight leak with top plastic cap. I redid again and doesnt help much. Im planning to go with Team Losi Racing Bleeder Shock Cap Set , does it fits on blue shock body (losb2826)?

THanks!

You are right, I guess speed difference surely plays into it, in the summer we ran on mostly big 1/8th tracks but rough and low traction so I was geared 15/40 with a 3800kv motor. Angle of the hit could also be a factor, I survived a steel watering pipe and head-on hits by out-of-control cars.

The TLR bleeder caps will help. To save some dollars, you should look for used, maybe a used set of 2.0 shocks that include harden shock bodies. Or buy the STRC metal caps. They dont have bleeder screw, but don't leak.

I can't find the right setup with the stock shocks for OCRC. No matter what I try they always seem too soft. Has anyone made the switch and upgraded to the 22 shocks? If so, whats the difference and worth the buy?

I think the 22 shocks are great. This truck generally works better with a softer shock setup, that allows roll with makes grip. If you get too stiff, the truck just stays on top of the track and slides more.

What setup are you running?

Im currently running 1.5 x 2 pistons with 40 up front 37.5 in rear. Just seems like the front is dipping when I hit throttle and the back wants to kick around.

There are a few setups posted here.

http://casper-rc.com/TLR_Ten-SCTE.htm

The new 5 hole piston setup is pretty awesome.

http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...odID=TLR233023

Ryan and I did a lot of shock testing to come up with this setup. The pistons will fit with the 22 or the stock SCTE shocks.

I am not sure I have ever tried a 2 hole piston in this truck. Due to the weight of the truck you need smaller holes to increase damping rate.

I would recommend starting with the Dunford OCRC setup near the bottom. Again setup should translate to the stock shocks quite well.

You can drill your own pistons with TLR blanks or the new 5 hole pistons should be available about the 2nd week of Sept

When you hit throttle or brakes?

This shock piston setup was magical when it came to forward bite on the truck when we started running it.
