I think its been answered before so sure..

can use the old arms- dont need old LCDs-- pretty sure
can use all hubs/ castors/ spindles
Bearings
shocks
bumpers
spurs/ adaptors
body mounts
sway bars
hingpins
turnbuckles

that might be about it..

i can only assume the car will come with those ball cups.

Has it been determined if the GTB will fit on this car? It's what I want to run on it when it comes out. I have some ideas how to do it, but was currious if someone has done it yet. Also, will the Orion 3200 carbon edition LiPo fit in this car. I can't wait for the car, but some of the details have me concerned. Any help would be great.

It seems you may need to run it on the opposite side of the motor tabs and run wires over the top deck. Here's a picture of Todd's car with a GTB from a few months ago.

I believe both the carbon and platinum Orion LiPo fit in the car just fine. The Platinum is in the car for its product shots, and it comes with a dedicated LiPo tray, so that one almost certainly works.

Thanks dude. I feel much more relieved. There is no way that I'm not going to be fully brushless/lipo next year. I really want to do that with this car.

No problem, I'm in the same boat as you are. Making the most out of LiPo seems to be one of the biggest reasons for getting this car. It's definitely why I'm switching.

Default Thrust bearings

To the Losi dedicated:

I have had a few thrust bearing failures lately. I noticed there are two versions. Which version is the most recent?

Version 1: The ball bearings are held within a brass hollow ring allowing grease to completely fill the bearing ring.

Version 2: The ball bearing ring is solid (brass I think) with grooves.

Version 1 is the thrust bearing that has been failing me. It basically distorts and comes apart. Leaving the diff almost seized.

The LiPo down the middle seems to make the most sense to me. I run rubber tire, so the motor in the back should help keep the rear end down. Any weight I have to use to make the minimum I can put anywhere. Can't wait to get the new car. I'm running the original car now and love it. I just can't get a LiPo in it.

We've got two guys locally running LiPo in the original car. They pulled the case off a 3200 and put it in double shrink, and managed to jam it in there. They're both winning races every week without issue, so I guess it's working okay for them.

I think I'll wait for the new car. I want to use the batteries for offroad this summer too. Right now our points rules say no LiPo. Next year we're going to allow them I think.

As far as the thrust assembly goes the best thing to do is to buy the thrust that mcmaster carr sells #7806K53. www.mcmaster.com They are awesome, your diff will be smoother and last longer. They are a little pricey but worth it.

Will the Corally ceramic thrusts work in the Losi diffs?*

The McMaster thrust washers are $10.68, not sure about the Corally one, never tried it. As far as it fitting I'm sure it will, I've used the xray one in the Losi diff, most of the thrusts are for use with a 3mm screw.
