I guess I should clarify my question on the shoes. The 3-shoe comes with a carbon set and an aluminum set of shoes already. What is going to make these new shoes special and more specific to the SCT?


As for the pinion, the stock 17t works very well, I agree there. However coupled with the 2 different shoe sets as well as the 4 spring options available for the 3-shoe system, extra pinions would help tailor the truck to track conditions/driving styles.

Just seen on Facebook that TLR has another vehicle they are getting ready to announce, provided they get enough 'Likes.'

The new set of shoes are aluminum and they are 10% heavier with more material touching the clutch bell for more grab. Less slippage.

And yes, another TLR vehicle will be announced tomorrow.

I'll be looking forward to the new shoes. I like the catch that the aluminum offer but I go through them like I go through nitro.

Do you mean the clutch bell, or are you actually talking about the pinion in the differentials?

The clutch bell pinion. They use a 2-piece threaded pinion/clutchbell set-up and I've yet to find anything that works with the clutchbell.

I saw the pinion clutch bell system, how does that go together? Does it thread on to the clutch bell? I'm used to a conventional one piece clutch bell.

Yes, it threads to the clutch bell.

This truck came along at just the right time. I've wanted to take another crack at nitro for a while now. My question is: if the included receiver pack is 7.4v will I have to buy a 6v pack to use a couple of Spektrum S6040 servos I
Have laying around? Thanks in advance!

Nope, the lipo pack runs through the ROSS control unit and brings the voltage down.
