If you use the kit setup with some minor adjustments on the springs you should be okay. I use a spool up front on low bite tracks (not a bunch of steering) the car seems to be planted more so than with a one way. Make sure your car rolls. A couple of things I changed from the kit setup is droop, I'm running 4mm over ride height in USVTA, I also changed the ride height to 5mm in the front and 5.5 in the rear. Setup the car so it rolls with your droop adjustments, spring weights and ride height.
Good Luck,
Casey

Can someone please give me a tip on how to keep the screws on the bottom of the c-hubs from falling out? On my other car they're aluminum so I use Loctite, but it says in bold letters on the back do not use on plastic. Also, I cant find those shims or washers on the bottom of the c-hubs listed from Losi, do they sell them? I have been using those plastic spacers that come with the a-arms in their place. Thanks.

If you're not using the right shim I'm sure this is causing the screw to loosen. They will tend to work out a little, but if its happening often with the right shims, then you need new knuckles.

Tamiya threadlock is what I'll try then. I was using those a-arm spacers on both sides, I just cant seem to get the right amount of tension on the screws. Too tight, they bind up the steering, too loose and they fall out.

that's because they don't have a shoulder for the knuckle to ride on, you need the right bushings.

Do you have these in the C hub? http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...X-dsh-S/Detail referring to the black collars in the picture with the screws and ballstuds. It these are missing then that is part of your problem.

I have the same problem the previous poster has, i try to stay on top of the c-hub screws and i use a drop of ca in the c-hub threads (i mean just like a tiny drop w/ one of those little pipette things) to keep things in place.

Only if you buy a PRS spur gear adaptor, otherwise only Losi spurs will fit.


Does anyone know what other brand spurs will fit on the PRS spur adaptor,IE Kawada etc....Emailed the company and they wernt 100% sure what would fit on it

B-master i would start around 118/43 which is 5.0 or a 39ish mm rollout...gear up from there to get more top end if you can without running the motor too hot.

Rev xs i have seen people use kimbourgh, prs, xray, or rw gears with no issues...you just have to make sure you use a short screw so it doesn't put pressure on the lay shaft and bind the drive line up.

4-40 x 1/4" aluminum buttonhead screws is what PRS puts in them. Any longer and the spur will start to push away from the adapter because the screws are hitting the pulley and putting force on the spur.
