You could run the rear brass weight and you can still run the optional 4 gear tranny and those would both help if grip is quite low. I ran a modified 2.0 on loose dirt (hard base) and my 2.0 we remarkably good on loose stuff with the correct tires MM. Was it on rails, no but again loose track conditions. There are lots that can be done to lock in the rear end further on this truck. With what I have heard so far the truck is producing impressive rear grip which should translate into good low grip handling as you have identified a few other ways to get even more if the kit setups don't work for your conditions.

Once concern though for my own track: I'm a bit worried that this truck will NOT be better on lower grip, actual real dirt tracks. Not even necessarily loose and loamy, just not a high grip clay... :-(

Already for testing it seems that the setup was searching for more rear grip:
- rear-most battery position
- inside most hole on the rear arm
- looks like lower rear roll center

During the video there was mention of comparing weight bias and how there is more rear weight bias on the 3.0 vs. 2.0. However, I'm guessing that this was comparing to a MID-motor SC 2.0?

Questions:

- How does the weight bias compare to a standard rear-motor 2.0?

- Do you have an idea how this would fare on a low-medium grip dirt track (example: a track needing Enduro, Blockade, Enduro 2, Double Ds, Flip-Outs, Square Fuzzies, etc.)?

- what option parts would be needed? (Brass rear hinge pin holder? 4-gear tranny?)

Thanks!
If I remember correctly, the X-factory trucks are right around 40/60, very close to this one, and with their 4-gear trans they are right at home on a loose track. I see no reason why the 3.0 with 4-gear and proper tuning couldn't work as well

Can't wait to get one of these trucks! I think it'll make a nice Christmas present to myself. I've been wanting to get back into short course racing for a while.

Well, mine is preordered. This will be my first short course vehicle, and only my 3rd Losi. The last Losi I had was the XXX-CR buggy, so it's been a long time. I'm very much looking forward to this thing! Merry Christmas to me.

Both Horizon Sites say early Jan (being concervative). Horizonhobby.com and tlracing.com.

I can't vouch for A-Main and their dates, which are generally very aggressive.

This would use the new 3.0 alum servo mounts.
