Parma - cyan or indigo front
Parma - magenta rears

Jaco or BSR - double pink/orange front
Jaso or BSR - double pink rears

Some folks run rears all the way around. I am sure you will have to tame the car down a little with the rears up front. It will steer like a mo fo. Hodge mentioned that they pretty much run the dp/orange or cyans up front.

Haynes just posted his set up and he is running magentas front and rear.

Play it safe and try some Cyan fronts and Magenta rears.

Todd: i suppose you missed my post a few pages back. dont blame you, this thread is going really fast and posts can get drowned out. anyway, i'd like to ask again - what exactly does lowering the diffs do? i will be running rubber on asphalt and was wondering if i should start of with the diff in the lowered position already or go high.

what exactly does lowering do and when would you suggest using it? thanks!

OK........Seems like this was an issue in the last kit as well.......

I'm ready to install the servo horn and the book lists the 25T for my KO servo.
It doesn't fit. But, the 23T for the JR servo's fits like a glove.
I've counted the splines on my KO servo and there are 23 on it.

Is this a missprint in the manual or do I have a "special" KO servo?

I just got done checkin the rear toe on my car and it is 3 on both sides as well. I still wonder if that guy got an odd ball kit that had an issue like the last car with half degree hubs or something weird like that.

don't use the losi horn for ko servo's. i've always had them jump teeth on me.

i use the ko or airtronics plastic horns with the metal ring around the splined part, they work great.
