Anyone know of a company that makes some aluminum suspension parts for this car?

If you are looking for hubs and carriers, I don't think so. I think the plastic stuff is just fine as long as you are not hitting boards. If you get the aluminum stuff you will just end up breaking something else which could be worse.

Wow thanks for posting that quickly Mike

I used to run anti-dive in the front on my fk05 to get rid of the rear wheel lifting... I think it removed off power steering and give more on power steering. Was that the same for the type R?

Do you run the metal tray in rubber as well?

Thanks and congrats!!!

J@une You are correct on the anti dive, there was a ton of traction there and most of the rubber cars were struggling to stop spinning out. Yea i was running lipo and used the steel tray.

So, no one is having issues with lipo packs rubbing against the layshaft pulleys? My Intellect 3800 is hitting both pulleys and I'd rather buy another pack than grind down the case on this one.

Yes we do have that problem with the SMC packs, check a the last few pages I made instructions on how to get enough clearance.

Be sure the flashing/tips on back of pulley's are removed, There is like 2-3 on back of each pulley... I had both cars have the plastic flashings on back of pulley's rub till I relized what it was. Takes 2 seconds to remove.......

That's all I did and mne fit like a champ......

So does Losi plan on making more of the steel Lipo trays? Seems like they have been on backorder forever!

the design of the car is ideal for li-po but not li-po ready by no means, losi should update the car to make it more li-po friendly
