The Lightest Short Course 4x4
« on: May 30, 2013, 11:31:58 PM »
I think this the lightest 4x4 SCT...
Even if not its pretty freaking cool.....

Bought all the lighten bits I could find for the SC10 4x4 and went back to the plastic chassis too. Also eliminated the saddles and went with shorty battery configuration. Removed alot of plastic bits more pics to come....

SC10 RTR with battery and tires plus body. 5.315lbs


Losi SCTE RTR with all its bits. 6.477lbs


The SC10 is a whole 1.1lbs lighter then the SCTE its so cool feels like a feather compared to the Losi. SWEET this years indoor 2013-2014 is going to be so much fun!!!

lighter is not always better especially if it raises the center of gravity too much.

Trying it out for indoors apparently in the states a couple of ppl had great success with this setup. Carpet we have unlimited traction so lighter and lower cg the better.

One place where less mass might not be an advantage indoors is if you get constantly bashed out of the way by someone running a slash with 3 pounds of fishing weights in it.    ;)     You will have to stay ahead of the traffic.  Al be nimble, Al be quick, Al jump over that Traxxas brick.
