The TLR SCTE platform has been the dominant force in the 4WD SCT class since its inception. With the SCTE 3.0 kit, TLR engineers started with the championship-winning SCTE 2.0 and refined its suspension geometry to be optimized for all track conditions. These refinements also make the truck easier to drive. Other changes include center driveline adjustability and the inclusion of parts that were considered optional on the SCTE 2.0 kit.
Adjustable Center Driveline
The motor and center diff can be mounted at an angle or in line with the chassis, allowing adjustment of the power bleed between the front and rear drivetrain. Mounted at an angle, the power bleeds evenly front-to-rear and the truck will drive out of the turns harder from point to point. Mounted in line, more power bleeds to the rear, giving the truck more aggressive on-power steering.
22 Platform Shocks
Gen II TLR 22 platform shocks reduce overall weight and lower the CG. Machined shock internals, X-rings, TiCN shock shafts and aluminum bleeder caps provide a smoother, more consistent shock. The truck lands better, jumps better, corners quicker and has a lighter, more nimble feel.
Dog-Bone Center Drive
The TLR SCTE 3.0 center dog bones provide less friction than CVA-type driveshafts, allowing for easier front-to-rear power transfer. This smoothes out changes in power delivery, making the truck easier to drive.
Popular Tuning Parts Included
Many parts that were previously considered options come standard on the TEN-SCTE 3.0. These include a chassis that is 3mm shorter, 22 platform shocks, a dog-bone center driveline, 15° caster blocks, hard-anodized aluminum suspension balls, a 2.3mm thick front sway bar, lightweight outdrives, and adjustable aluminum front and rear pivots.
CNC-Machined Aluminum Chassis
The TLR SCTE 3.0 lightweight chassis is machined from durable 7075-T6 hard-anodized aluminum and is 3mm shorter than the stock TEN-SCTE 2.0 chassis. The shorter chassis makes the 3.0 a nimble truck that changes direction quicker and exits turns harder. It also makes it easier to drive fast and lower lap times.
Carbon Fiber Shock Towers
The ultimate in performance and durability, carbon-fiber TLR SCTE 3.0 shock towers save weight and help lower the CG.
Hard-Anodized Suspension Balls
To keep the suspension links smooth and free of slop, hard-anodized aluminum suspension balls are used throughout the truck. They are lighter than their steel counterparts and the hard-anodized coating keeps them from wearing so connector fit is always perfect.
Lightweight, CNC-machined outdrives are used throughout the TLR SCTE 3.0. This makes the entire drivetrain lighter so drivers enjoy quicker, more responsive acceleration.
High-Performance TLR Body
This incredibly popular body is back for the TLR SCTE 3.0. Made from durable 1.2mm polycarbonate, it delivers all the downforce needed to corner fast and stay in control when flying down the straights. During jumps, air under the body is channeled through strategically placed vents so the truck is more stable while airborne. Finishing the body is easy thanks to its pre-cut wheel wells, bumpers and edges. About all that’s left to do is cut the vent holes and apply the paint scheme.
