Oh man, I'm spent. I haven't built a new kit in like two years, I guess I'm out of practice.

I LOVE these Losi shocks. I can't believe I suffered for so long with something else. These are so easy to get right. I had no idea building shocks didn't have to completely suck.

I got the shocks mounted, made a 3AM run to Pancho's for some mexican eatin', and now it's time to zzZzz and resume tomorrow.

They should do I think, if the R, is using the same the S, as I used to give my spare ones to the Corally boys at my track.

Your still not done? My car is done, just need to moun the RX and esc. My drive train is very free and the car went together very very well! I am very impressed with this car.

If the car works on the track as well as it looks it will be a very tuff car to beat.

Later,

Well with the thrust bearing problem I had I didn't get too far. I will get almost done tonight. Got a late start on it yesterday. My buddy sanded down the chassis real nice with 1500 grit after gluing it. The two screws on the bottom front side of the rear bulk heads underneath did not countersink very well so i had to do a little extra countersinking on them and the holes are next to the edge of the chassis so you have to be careful. Anyone else run into this? So far I like the car, It is very different and nice.

Same problem with those 2 screws. Rear bulkhead screws next to the battery opening.

Only thing that kind of bothers me is they do not give you the clamping wheel hexs. Hate slide on hexs because as we all know they slide off the pin slides out and you spend alot of time looking for that pin. We know Losi makes them so it should have been very easy for them to include them.

Later and happy building,

I have had the the hexes come of with the wheel but never lost the pin ever. I always had to push the pin out and it did not come out very easy.

What is the part number for the clamping hexes? (direct Type-R replacement width).

Thanks!

So far the kit has gone together REALLY well (except for the upper camber link thingies, I still don't care for those). The bulkheads, arm mounts all looks sweet.

I have everything but the shocks and the Spur Gear put built now. My PRS adapter should be here today.

Can someone explain to me the advantage of this new upper camber link thingy?

When I assembled one the set screw was in too far into the turnbuckle. Try undoing it a few turn to the point where set screw sticks out through C-hub side of the assemble .5 mm or so. You might have to hobby knife a tiny slice if material on the inside of the turnbuckle were you pushed it in.

I assume umean the JR link, if this is so then on my car it tends to keep the car flatter/square on the front

This is actually pretty good, those of us that don't have the car can see what everyone is havin issues with and be prepared for it. Pooky, Malc and myself appreciate the building info you guys are giving us.

I will be picking mine up today, but since I have no place to run it tomorrow may just take my time and do it up right. That and I am sure Pooky has not even started painting my body anyhow!!
