This is an optional FTW R/C Carbon Fiber Ackerman Set, and is intended for use with the Losi TEN-SCTE. If you are intent on removing extra weight from your SCTE, don't forget the factory Ackerman rack. FTW's Ackerman set is cut out of USA made carbon fiber and includes both long and short Ackerman plates that are direct replacements for the stock parts, but offer a significant weight reduction.

NOTE: FTW's Ackerman racks for Ten-SCTE come ready for installation, but we recommend sealing the edges with cyanoacrylate (CA) glue first.

This product was added to our catalog on September 28, 2011.

I will admit I bought these for no solid reason except to be a weight weenie but I had been having trouble with my stock ackermann feeling a little sloppy when tight and backing out the screw due to the vibration from that looseness. When I put these on I had to hammer the flanged adapters into them and they have not loosened up since. Combined with the hard anodized servo saver tube and a set of hard anodized pivot balls, this set-up will remove virtually all of the slop out of the steering.

Did nothing but generate even MORE steering slop. Went right back to the stock unit instead. Absolutely poor machining tolerance on the hole ID's (inside diameter), about 0.50mm-0.75mm larger than stock. Which equates to a more exaggerated effect of slop generated at the end of the steering components, nearest to the wheels themselves. Not A Main's fault. FTW's. I will never buy another product of theirs again. Unacceptable.

This part is awesome, looks as good as it works! Super light weight and takes all the "slop" out of your steering. I have been running mine for over 6 months now and there is no slop at all in the link. FTW is a great company and they make a lot of other cool stuff!
