The LCDs are one of my favorite features of the car.

joey, that looks sharp! what springs are you using, and how long of a sensor harness did it take to do that? also, take a pic of the other side if you dont mind. im thinking of turning all of my solder posts the other way around and going with that layout.

I tried to mount the speedo on both sides of the chassis. I also tried mounting it on the side and flat. The car wieghts 5247. No matter what side you mount the speedo on, that side is going to be the heavy one. The weight difference does not effect the car handling. I can not justify adding the weight for balance.

Since I got my car, I was running a diff and the car was great (track around 90X45, carpet and rubber tire, 13.5 BL motor and lipo)

Last night I installed a one-way (dam losi and one-way, took me more then 1 hour to install).

OMG!!! Same setup but with a one-way and ouch, the car was going everywhere. Very hard to control, the rear was going left and right…etc.

Question 1: is it harder to run with a one-way? I guess yes

Question 2: is it really faster to drive with a one-way (our track/rubber tire). After 2 batt, I was just not able to drive it (setting maybe) and I was still faster with a diff then oneway (9.7 sec diff VS 9.9 sec with oneway)

I have copied around 6-7 setup sheet but it all pretty different and only 1 was running a oneway. Someone else have a setup sheet with carpet/13.5/rubber/oneay??

thanks

one-ways require a very smooth throttle finger getting both on and off power. It takes some getting used to but either a oneway or spool is usually faster with rubber tires on any surface. If you can't get the hang of the oneway, get a spool pulley and build up a spool for the front. If you're used to running the diff in front, the spool should suit your driving style better.

For anyone who is off put by the gold of the Trakpower 4900, Team Checkpoint now sells the same lipo. These are 25C whereas the 5400 is only 16C.

I thought I would give a quick little review of Lipo Lead. Bottom line, I think it works. I'm not really experienced enough to notice minute changes on the car, but I could definitely tell the car felt more planted after I put this on. The car was way less skwerly and way more predictable. It felt like it reacted a tad bit slower due to the added weight I'm sure. Guys at my track run Schuies and Xrays with lipos and only about an ounce to an ounce and a half of weight, but I dont think the Losi was meant to drive that light like I was trying to do.
If you want to buy some the #2 is the only one that will fit. The #4 is too thick. You have to remove the battery foam and its a perfect fit. Also, Team Fusion gives you more than what you pay for. They throw in some end cuts of other thicknesses. I went Fry's and got some 1 1/2" black shrink so it would hide the lead(still need to shrink it).
