Only person I am aware of that is going to be there is Mike Haynes. Schreff and Fairtrace can't make it. I honestly don't know if there are any other Losi sponsered guys.

The rev, The brass shim is good to have, my diffs last a very long time on a rebuild. The key is to make sure that you change it when ya do the diff, and also make sure to motor spray/wipe the rings and the tube so they are nice and clean before assembling.

I have this problem too. Its normally when I'm hit rather than me hitting things!
I did try RPM ball cups but as I'm running a 1mm washer under the outer ball stud they rub the rear wheels. Does anyone know of some alternatives?

Screff and Fairtrace made them popular again. 3 months ago they were everywhere now if you see one come up used on ebay they go quickly. I was at the jackson race yesterday and it was a sea of type-r's, there was even a pro putting down some great laps in 19t class!

You forgot Mike Haynes. 90% of every TC at 360 Speedway is a Type-R. He tried to get me to get me to get one but I am a die hard 12th scale racer. If I were to get a TC it would be a Type-R. Mike also won the 13.5 Rubber class at the Snowbirds. How do you forget Mike Haynes??!!??!!

Ive still got a slightly loose rear end on corner exit. I stiffened the car up all round and this greatly improved it. I'm running rubber tyres and almost kit setup but I have a 1mm washer under the rear outer ball stud and 17.5 front springs and 15 rear.

Thanks

Did you try moving the camber link ball stud on the rear hub carrier to the inner hole (closest to the center line of the car), also what hole is your inner mount for you camber link try it in #4.

The guys at Jackson raceway REALLY helped me out this weekend, my 13.5 car is dialed, now i just have to learn how to drive it hahaha. Ron (Mr. VIP), Fairtrace, and Scooby helped me get things worked out. I am now even more in love w/ my type-r than i was before, thanks guys!!

I just have to fix my popping ballcup issue (some jb weld and a couple lag bolts) and i'm headed for the top of the B-main babeeeee !!

Yea it is awesome to see so many guys having success with his car, i don't really know why it took a bit to catch on, but those that have them seem to usually be happy.

Not sure what rear link your using, but 4A seems to work very well with rubber tire, how much droop do you have in the car? Too much may make it feel inconsistent on power. I shoot for about 1.5 over ride height up front and around 2 in the back.

I'm running 5b at the moment with a 1mm washer under the ball stud.
Droop wise 3mm over ride height front and rear. The car is nearly there but I found on the tight hairpin turns it sometimes wants to turn round on itself when I put the power on.

If your rear end is loose go to the 4a link like everyone says and about 2.5mm uptravel front 2 rear.

17/15 springs on most tracks.
I've been running 3 degrees rear toe lately 1 on the chassis, 1 on the hub, 1 on the block.

Also overdrive.

45/40 oil.

High Front, Low rear roll center.

either 4 degree caster blocks or 6 degree blocks and 2 degrees of antidive.

I usually always run high front diff on rubbers, and low or high rear diff depending on the feel of the track.

I always run the long ackerman link on asphalt since I switched to it at the beginning of the year.
