I would start by raising the front roll center for off power and 2000 in the rear to get more on power steering coming out?

Or you could start with taking the front anti roll bar off and see if it helps?

Oh and I just noticed if you want to go on attack mode in the apex in and out change the 1 up's for .05's or even zero on the kick up...

You could move your rear hubs forward, or try a thicker rear swaybar

Not even some claps or cheering at the end.

We're talking top drivers in a final in the states on a fantastic track.

Is it because it is an electric and not a nitro final?

Because they only had 9 heats total for a National event. And most of the drivers prolly ran 2-3 classes and that's the only reason for 9 heats. Pretty sad!

I want the alu servo saver top.

In this thread some suggest the LOSA4441, others the TLR244021.

On the TLR site the TLR244021 are listed under "option parts" on the nitro 8ight 3.0 page and not the LOSA4441.

Is the TLR244021 the one to get?

This is speculation on my part, but I think it's due to having nitro nats in a month again here in texas, and that there is a bunch of other big races soon. Locally, we have 100 people that race in our local series. I think people were intimidated, or had school like I ( I had finals, but everything worked out).

Either way, the Losi car dominated with Phend behind the wheel. Phend and Drake were awesome to talk to, they were very helpful with setups and tips. They are definitely some of the best reps out there for any rc car company.

Did you get a copy of his setup by chance? Curious what he's changed for our local track from stock...

The low turn out could be the cost. There are a lot of people that run motors and batteries that are not ROAR legal in 1/8 scale. These batteries and motors work just as well and the ROAR approved items. If you have is working why go overpay for the same type of products to race just this race? 1/8 Ebuggy and etruggy should just be an open class. No limit on motor and cells just chassis dimensions.

Plus someone else made a good point that the outdoor season has just started and some tracks have not dried out yet.

Dakota's buggy and sct did look really good.

I ran 15/48 in Truggy. You have to dremel the chassis a little bit so the 48 steel spur gear will fit.

Granted keeping the diff low is a good thing but you could shim up the diff as well for clearnace.
