Default Looking for SCTE parts

I just picked up a Losi Ten-T and looking to convert it to brushless, maybe even to an SCTE if I can get parts cheaply enough. So I need a motor mount, battery tray, SCTE chassis, center rear driveshaft, top brace, center diff gear, radio tray. Let me know what you have. Thanks.

I can help you out with information on that build, I just finished a Ten-T brushless conversion. You don't need the SCTE chassis, driveshafts, or radio tray. The chassis and driveshafts, you only need if you're going full SCTE, which isn't worth the cost. You would need SCTE body mounts, body, axles/hexes, chassis, rear driveshaft, rear chassis brace, bumpers, side skirts, SCTE wheels/tires, etc. It gets to be more expensive than getting an SCTE roller in the first place. Best to keep it 1/10 truggy, or easily and much cheaper than SCTE conversion, convert it to 1/8 ebuggy with just body mounts, a body, 17mm wheel adapters and 1/8 buggy tires. The Ten-T radio tray works, just cut it in half next to the switch.

Check mine out if you want an idea what it will be like as 1/10 brushless Truggy with 1/8 buggy tires:

Best place to pick up parts for the conversion is from people parting out RTR's on ebay. I picked up a set of Losi SCTE/Ten-T shock towers for $1.79 plus shipping.

Hope this has been helpful at least.

Thanks. You're probably right about costs for converting to an SCTE. I think I'll just go the brushless route for now. Your E-truggy looks good. What motor are you running in there? Is that a HW SC8 esc? I haven't decided whether to set it up for 2s or 4s yet.

Yeah, Hobbywing Waterproof SC8, Hobbywing 4700kv 4 pole brushless motor geared 18/40 on 2s. I prefer 2s, its still plenty fast, not as hard on the drivetrain, and the batteries are cheaper to replace.
