verrrry nice! RCM stuff looks great, musta been tough to drill and tap the holes so close to the edge of the chassis, but good idea! nice CF on there too...and the alum chassis braces...dang nice!

Glad you like it.
Drilling the holes so close to the edge was actually pretty easy.
Just use a big hammer.
And a center punch
Seriously, in my opinion one of the most underrated tools out there.
Taping (what's the present progressive form of "to tap" anyways?) the threads was pretty easy, doesn't really matter if it's close to the edge or not.
Just get the screw tap in straight and you're almost there.

As for the CF parts, you can get those as CRT.5 parts off of ebay pretty cheap you know

And shure the RCM stuf looks great, it's RCM stuff

Was out with SCRT10 for the first time today.
But boy was I not happy!
Has a turningradius like freight train, jumped like it had an extra 50kg (110lb for you US-boys) at it's nose and acceleration and top speed sucked.
Motor got hot, 70C (158F) after about 3 minutes of runtime.
Geared for 38mph (calculated with LiPos at 4.2V x 2S).
This motor is allegedly able to push an RC8Be arround.

To put this in to comparison:
I put my Slash 4x4 on the track later that day.
The eledged non-competitive toy truck.
With springs that didn't really work with that shock setup, with positive(!) camber and toe-in way off in the front, because I forgot to reset them.
It would have wiped the floor with the SCRT10 today.
On an, admitedly somewhat slippery, carpet track!
It turned like a tank, flew straight and was super controlable.
In short, everything I expected.
From the SCRT10.

Man am I pi**ed!
Sorry for that rant guys, guess I needed to get that off my chest.

How would I know if "it" (whatever "it" is in this case) was just random or if "it" worked fine before?
As I said, I ran the truck for the first time. There was no before.
And the motor issue is the least of my worries right now.

With some trial and error and a bit of help from the guys at RCSC I finally got my SCRT10 ready to go.
This thing out turns my SC10 now, is fast as hell, super stable, haven't been able to tracktion roll it even once. Even if I try my best to upset the car it may start a little drift (very easy to control) but that's it.
After end over end tumbling or cartwheel crashes it nearly always get's back on it's wheels, only once today that it landed on it's roof and stayed there.

This is what I hoped for form the start.
Still need to get softer springs for the rear shocks and adjust droop after that.
But other than that, only a few quirks left in the ESC setup, but that's not the cars fault.

Also took a few snap shots of the SCRT10 with body on at the track today:



The Body is a bit wide, especially in the rear, but that's always a problem with the SCRT10 since it just is that bit more narrow.
