Second, I would like to get away from the 64P gearing and change to 48P due to our car park track which has alot of small rocks and debry on it. Has anyone done this mod and if so what gear did you use?

Here are some pics of my ride
with the 128 spur gear you should be able to get a 21 on but just barley. check to seeif maybe you can rotate the motor to another mounting hloe in the can, that's what I did for my 3.5. if you want to run a 20 you might have to be a little creative with a dremel tool. Billy Fischer did that to his and it fit like a charm. you simply "extend" the adjustment hole a little further, but I would try the 21 first before you buzz your new ride.

if you noticed with 128 spur and the 20 tooth pinion the belt pulley will rub on the can you can fit a 130 spur with no problem but if you mill down under the spur you can fit a 134 with no problems

Apex, The things I found so far that carry over are the shocks,hinge pins,sway bars, the short arms can be used, and some of if not all the bearings, steering knuckles, and hub carriers. Hope this helps.

If any one from losi is watching I have emailed you several times with no response. I bought 2 sway bar kits from speedtech and only got a .060 and .030 sway bar. The packages were un-opened and brand new.

Fred,

If that doesn't work send me a PM and I will get you fixed up. I am sure Horizon will resolve the issue, but worst case scenario let me know.

do you do international orders? i'm all the way in the Philippines and im thinking it will be a bit pricey for me to order a small part and have it shipped overseas... the shipping might even cost more than the pulleys.

Todd is pretty good about getting things taken care of if you send him an email with your issue.

there is a way to make yor existing pulley into a spool, all you need is a header card (like a thin card board for a parts bag) and some ca glue, this will save you $$ on shipping and it will take you all about 5 minutes

here is how you do it (from Adrian M.)

3. With thin CA glue header card stock to one side of the diff rings. Cut them out so that one side of the ring is faced with paper.

4. Reassemble the diff with no diff balls and the paper side of the diff rings facing towards the pulley. The paper takes up the space normally occupied by the diff rings so the width of the spool is correct.

5. Adjust the Spool/Diff just like a diff. Full tight then back off 1/4 turn. This will allow the spool to slip and dissipate energy during crashes. It will NEVER slip while racing, only during crashes.
