I agree! I really like my SCTE. I'm going to start experimenting with all the available hop ups to see how far I can push the truck. I've added titanium turnbuckles, Aluminum rear hubs, Chassis supports (Front and Rear) Lightened outdrives and more on the way. With each hop up the truck will become lighter and lighter. Not sure if lighter is always better in this case, but I'd like to see if I can stay up front with my truck.

Look at what other people are running, and it comes down to a personal decision and what you are familiar with. I run the Tekin RX8 linked to a Novak ballistic $.5 Brushless motor. Make sure to run a good battery; something with a constand discharge of at least a 40-45C. Also look for the amps on the Burst, this can tell you the kind of power you can expect.

ofna nexx?

if you also want an opinion on the truck I would go with Losi or Associated two best trucks as of today. but losi needs less tuning and will hardly traction roll but it is heavy.

I finally got my scte =)) now what diff and shock oil is best for Hal's? It comes with a Novac Havoc Pro esc with a Ballistic 4.5 motor. I'll appreciate all your help, I'm a newbie to electrics or if there's a link to a good setup sheet that'll help too. Thank you in advance!!

As far as diff oil, I ran mine with the stock grease that comes in it and it ran great! I would say leave it as is. Get used to how the truck runs first. Then if you think you need to change it, then do it. You're gonna have a blast with this thing!! Hope to see you out at the next race. Which will be in two weeks.

If you want to really be competitive you got to tweak the cars right, but if you are happy with it running decent and cheap as possible use joint grease or petroleum jelly with some all in one oil and wd40, has worked awesome on my diffs and never will open them again.
for the shocks it is a buggy almost same thing I use a little heavier than buggy because of the parachuting helping on high jumping.

And what motor are you using?

petroleum jelly with some all in one oil and wd40, Are you Serious ??????? How about some KY jelly while your at it...LOL....
Front Diff 3000
Center Diff 3000
Rear Diff 2000
Make Sure all that Grease is completely out of the Diffs before Filling with oil...

I am running 3K in all my diffs. I'm not sure about the WD-40, but who knows. The standard diff grease works very well, and depending on how much you race, it can work well for a long time. I ran my diffs in stock configuration for about 5 -6 months; racing every weekend. They were a bit dirty when I finally opened them. I cleaned them out nicely and added 3K diff oil in all three diffs. It took me about 10 minutes to get used to the feel of the truck, but I'm liking it now. I'm thinking of going 2K all the way across. I think I will definitely go with 2K in the front to tighten up cornering.
