I have the SCTE and I wouldn't switch. Here's my take on Losi vs AE in general. For some reason AE is bad for not including things that you really need like sway bars. AE also seems to have really...

You're thinking of the wrong ESC. He is running the very small and light 1/10 scale 120A, not the huge xerun 150 for 1/8 scales (which I run in E-buggy and it's awesome but yes big)

Bruce,

I have an extra if you need it. Don't buy the Losi part, I'm sure you can get the fastener elsewhere. It is a 5-40 button head 1 13/16 in length by my cheapo calipers.

If you want my suggestion, stay away from 1/8 motors. They are WAY heavy and have to be geared to the moon on 2S to be fast. Castle 1410 is in my opinion the very best motor out there for this truck,...
