What effect will making the front end wider (using the .225 hexes in place of stock)?

Default One-way

I just finished my one way for my type-R. I used the bearing and outdrive from my Xray diff.

So here is my Losi Multi diff.






Xray cvd blades...


XRAY Springs with AE Cup... For those like who went from Xray to losi

Losi a no show at the Nats? Has Horizon given up on racing?

From a 1 inch aluminium shaft. Once tested, Il make it more light weight

I think the STD diff tube could be modified to use the Xray bearing and outdrives.

No we are not giving up on racing. With only 58 entries going into the race we felt our $ spent would be much better used by us preparing for the IIC. You will see us at all the carpet races this year IIC, Halloween CLassic, and US Indoor Champs.

Good to hear, there's been a lot of speculation recently about the future of Losi in on-road racing. I'm looking forward to carpet season, screw summer and all its distractions.

Good to hear, didn't realized that there was a small turnout. Too many big races or is TC running out of steam?

I think it's a little of both. Too many big race too close to each other as well. Reedy race, off road nats, gas nats, on road nats.....hell....what's next in the newxt week or two?

Follow-up question: Do you, representing a manufacturer, feel that Horizon's increasing lack of participation (i.e. 1/8 Worlds, 1/10th TC Nats., etc.) for sanctioning body's "premier events", diminishes the importance and popularity of those events?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Can some of you guys help me understand the use and application of Sway bars? I have them but wouldn't know in what scenario that I might benefit from them.

Also the setup I am using is running the widest hexes up front but the most narrow in the rear...how will that effect the handling of the car? My rear end really wants to come around on exit from the turns when I get back on the power...help please!!
