Default LST2e racer build thread

Hello,
I purchased a used LST2e on here and it was in excellent condition and added updated electronics and it was a beast on the track. I decided I want to take it to another level for this year.


as originally purchased

While waiting for the steering link to come in, I decided to mount the electronics, Tekno extra hard 15t pinion and new receiver box

items used: HW XR8 SCT pro with XT 90 connector, Leopard motors 4274/2000kv motor and a modified RC8B3 radio box

Before installation:


after installation:




Modified receiver box added.




next up is mounting the battery tray

3d printed battery tray has been mounted, we will see how it holds up. Found some Losi battery straps in my parts boxes.




Tried hide the wiring as much as possible. Might just rebuilt the front end to be ready when the final parts come in.

Honestly, that looks and sounds like you’re doing is an electric muggy… Do we search for team Losi muggy… And you may find some really cool ideas and insights

Didnít want to do a complete muggy build as I might as well buy a truggy at that point. Wanted to keep the CoG a higher and keep a monster truck of sorts. Itís a build to run against my friends center diff racer maxx I built for him a few years ago. We have a mt race a few times during the summer. Should be fun when I done
