You could try running some front arm sweep out or using anti squat in the back, i used both when running outside and it seemed pretty good.

Had some hard hits and the only broken part was a right front caster block and split the plastic ball cup NO MORE FRONT ARM ISSUES The new arms are molded correctly and can take the hits on the boards a lot better than the previous arms.

It brought a tear to my eye to see you running so well, car looked great

Spur wasn't a losi part so that's probably why it stripped out.....
It happened when I was hard on the brakes at the end of the straight. I wasn't even running my big boy motor That track was very tight and not really a mod friendly layout. Stock was running close to mod times. Glad I got my car working great.

Cheers

Really?? I have never come across one of them before. You must be thinking of the rear inner toe in angle which is 2 degrees kit (2 dots on the aluminium bar stating 2 deg). The toe in blocks are only available in 0,0.5,1 as far as im aware...
2 degrees is pretty immense!

This set up shows "std 0 degree hub" with a 2 degree rear toe pivot block. This is what comes in the kit. The car has 1 degree of toe built in, plusthe 2 degree pivot gives a total of 3 degrees.

Yes i can clearly see that

Losi have given us the options of standard and off set rear hubs

These hubs as it says on the sheet they are,

0 deg
1/2 deg
1 deg
2 deg

They are the choices we have.

By moving the toe out to the hubs, you get less weight transfer to the front, which i want to try,

Any one know when they will be out or at least a part number

Cheers
Tim

I see what you are getting at. There is the option. I am not sure if these are actually in production or are going to be. I will see what I can find out and get back with you.
