From what I have heard there isn't a problem with the one way. Everybody seems to like it. I'm just a stubborn guy who sees something that works and thinks no substitutes will do. As far as chassis flex I tried running the car on a high bite asphalt track with and without the chassis braces and found the car was much too unstable without the front braces, but I've always perfered a stiff setup whether on asphalt or carpet. I didn't mean to rock the boat. See everybody in Fla. in less then 4 days.

There are guys saying that the car is good on low traction asphalt, how do you go about getting it to really grip up.
I started with the Todd setup everyone keeps quoting, but it had no bite in the corner.

Last meeting i did try going to an ultra soft spring on the front end, the Short Tamiya flouros, i think these are around 8lb, i am going to try softer on the rear also to see how it goes. The front end became much more darty and turn in was substantially better.

I am just thinking that the US version of low grip is far removed from the Aussise version of low grip.

Keep in mind the T. Hodge set up for Reedy Race 2007 or ROaR 2007, is for med-high traction asphalt.

For low traction, just make the following changes:

35WT oil all around, or 30WT if its really dusty and untreated. Use the 15lb springs up front, with 12.5lbs in the rear. If you need a bit more front steering/bite upgrade to 15lbs springs in rear. Also use 5A for rear camber link position, or 4A if needed. Test with these changes and see what it does....it should be much better with these simple changes.

Im running my xray oneway in the Losi since July. I'm racing on carpet every weeks without a single failure... And it spin like an xray too

I kept the multi diff function so it can be used as a spool or a locked one way... I posted it last summer but since we are talking about it






Xray cvd blades...

For what it's worth going back to the alloy parts ... the XRAY T2 front hubs do fit on the car with some minor modification. We were strapped for parts at a recent local race and Peter discovered that you can grind down the inside of the c-hub to clear the LCD and do some minor work to the bottom of it to clear the arm it will fit. I am running medium plastic XRAY hubs on my car because they have more give to them.

The same will work with the aluminum parts. You just can't run the steering knuckle as the depth is all wrong.

While I understand your guys standpoint of a stiff car being a better car, I also feel tuning with the softer plastic gives you a subtle change that is sometimes needed. Sort of like sway bars. But in the end, sometimes you run on a track that you cannot run stiff arms on and it would just be nice to survive a heat.

The one-way works great, you just have to be careful when you assembly it. The one-way bearings (little rods) that tend to fall out. Use a white towel and not those black pits mats everyone sells when assembling the one-way. So, if they do fall out you can easily find them.

Um no way... not going to happen.

Losi is actually looking for more suggestions on updating the car. It runs so well, they really haven't received many complaints. If you have issues with the one-way, or other things about the car.. make sure you email LOSI with suggestions.

We just had 3 guys last weekend that purchased Xray 008 cars and just dumped them for JRXS-R.. they cannot get the 008 to rotate in the corners and that is easily accomplished with the JRXS.

How much grip does the rear end have?
