Lipo is not the problem. I only use lipo too.

I will look at my setup later but I can tell you for now, maybe your front is to much "locked", put some toe in, reduce the droop at the back and put the roll centers high. Put more tension at the front belt and less at the rear one.

Make sure the shocks have enough oil.
Try one change at a time.

Does anyone use torque screwdrivers or torque wrenches to set their diff?

If so, what range do you use?
10-100 oz/in or greater.

hey guys set-up question.
when making set-up changes i try to use what i know.like if a car pushes..well make it softer in the front and so forth.

well running the car on carpet with no traction compound.i used the box stock set-up.in exceptions of im using 35 spring in the front and 20 spring in the rear.i have 40 oil in the rear with the 50 oil in the front.and raised the rear camber link one hole.tires i am using the parma pro magenta rear and cyan up front.the car felt a little stiff.it was pushy.so i soften the whole car up going back to the box springs for carpet.30 front and 17.5 rear.ran the next heat and the car pushed even more.
droop i was running 1mm over in the front and 2mm in the rear.my question is why did the car feel more responsive with a stiffer set-up vs a softer...?
and if i continue to go stiffer will it feel more aggressive?i would like the car to just have more corner speed...

lmk guys and thx.

What issue are you having with the kit ones? I like them better then normal ball cups. I have not had one pop off on me yet. Just get these if you want a closed ball cup, http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...Cups%2C/Detail they were on the original JRXS and you won't have to cut them down to size to work with the small turn buckles.

Also, with the kit "ball cups" you get to take advantage of the hexes in the ball studs without having to drill or cut the top of the cup off.

Roar approved Lipo. Another advantage to running a Losi!

forgive me if this has been asked before, but why did losi bother to differntiate the shock caps? seems strange. i'm guessing there is a reason?

I think they did that so if you have all of them off the car you know which would be front and which would be rear. Or if you wanted to go by sides maybe. I personally don't worry about it and there is no difference other then the dots on the caps.

Waz up Mike...yes, the Type R is really something. When there's good traction, its such easy car to drive fast. Its handles so nicely and has very good corner speed. And its pretty tough too...I really like it.

Only pblm I've had is on low-med traction surfaces...it pushes...but its a set up thing...I'll keep working on it till I find a set up that'll work great on low-med traction asphalt.

If you remember what you ran down here a few weeks ago, please PM the set-up
