Now you can upgrade your SC10 4×4 short-course truck to the latest competition spec. This new kit allows the use of a saddle-pack battery to optimize the weight distribution of the chassis. With the addition of the Factory Team carbon-fiber chassis brace rod, the chassis flex has been made more consistent and predictable for an overall improvement in handling and traction. One of the more radical features on the SC10 4×4 Factory Team kit is now available to you, the VTS4 slipper clutch, a variable torque, multi-plate slipper clutch with four drive surfaces. The VTS4 slipper clutch provides increased torque capacity in addition to finer resolution adjustments. It all adds up to more consistent power transfer to the ground.
Swiss company SMP Racing Parts have released these new titanium CV axles for the Losi Ten-SCTE 1/10th 4WD Short Course truck. These super light weight parts not only look great but add extra strength for maximum durability.
Pro-Line’s new ProTrac Suspension kit for the Slash 4×4 is an easy to install kit that greatly increases forward acceleration, corner speed, consistency and drivability. Pro-Line revolutionized the 2WD Slash with the original ProTrac Suspension kit and now the same advantages are available for your Slash 4×4. The kit includes longer Front and Rear suspension arms for improved handling, ProTrac wheels that bring the truck back to Stock ROAR Legal width and new longer turnbuckles. The ProTrac arms not only look tricker than the stock arms, but they are beefier and have more suspension adjustment holes so you can dial in the truck to your track. Also, Pro-Line’s ProTrac wheels have become the standard in the 4×4 SC class with the SC10 4×4 and SCTE 4×4 both capable of running ProTrac wheels.
AKA Cyclone SC wheels are designed to fit the Losi Ten SCTE 4×4. All wheels are made from the same proprietary nylon blend as the the 1:8 AKA wheels. The wheel design is modeled after the full-size wheels used on the trucks to keep that scale look that makes the SC class so cool. Behind the scenes the wheel is all about being light weight and strong. Each spoke of the wheel is hollowed out to save weight, while there are outer ribs to help support the barrel of the wheel for more consistent handling. The wheel is designed to work with our standard buggy inserts which are included with each pair of AKA SC tires.
Starting with the already awesome SC10 4×4, Team Associated takes our 4WD short course truck to the next level with the full Factory Team treatment. The new high performance features found on the SC10 4×4 Factory Team kit have been designed to give this truck the competitive edge in the dirt and on the track. The SC10 4×4 Factory Team kit is built from the same race proven composite modular chassis but with many new upgraded features added. The chassis layout has been reconfigured and now features a centralized-mass battery mount. This allows the use of a saddle pack battery to optimize the weight distribution of the chassis. With the addition of the Factory Team carbon fiber chassis brace rod, the chassis flex has been made more consistent and predictable for an overall improvement in handling and traction.
