Yeah, I used those too and I had enough to do the rear of the car, but need more for the front.

I just thought there might be some Losi shims or aftermarket shims made for the Losi pivot blocks.

On the original JRXS they had those shims. That was the only way to raise/lower the roll center. It seems that they would still work. I think the only difference between the new blocks and the old are graphite to aluminum...

Hi ya, I run them on my brushed mod car. i have put a servo socket on to the battery terminals of the speedo, that way they get full power and if i don't need to run them i can easily take them out. I have three fans mounted using the losi mounts that come with the car

Cheers

Tim

That was just a comment to get opinion's on if a tub chassis style of car would help bring people back to touring car racing. The cost being the big factor of what we see now, $350+ touring cars.

It depends on the price and performance. I would guess the target price would have to be around $200. Stormer sold about 100 Cyclones at that price in about 3 or 4 weeks last fall.

I actually run three fans and the ones I use are the prewired/plugged AE fans. They are a bit pricey but you just screw them down and plug it into the reciever. I also have a Novak fan wired into the harnass for the end bell. If I remember I will take a pic of one of my cars tomorrow for you.

I run a GTB without a fan since it doesn't seem to be needed with a 13.5. Then, I plug a fan into the set of pins on the ESC for the fan that's usually there and have one mounted over my motor. Works great.

Hey guys, there are 2 different part numbers for the suspension arms on the R. Anyone here knows the difference?

Front - LOSA1217 or LOSA9742
Rear - LOSA2223 or LOSA9862

Just seems kind of funny that even Losi list both these arms on the website!

9742 and 9862 are the long replacement arms. I believe the other two are short arms. The car comes with long arms and is what most of us run.
