If you look under the topdeck you can see there are 2 holes for the bellcranks.

The instructions tell you to mount the bellcranks forward and thats what I have always run.

Hey Larry, What do you think of the new Losi LiPo's??.......... How's the fitment in the car and performance??

Wasn't sure if you ran it on Sunday. I know you had the other cells with ya, the one's you had at Blue Diamond.

Alex,

I ran the new losi lipo's in my 13.5 foam car sunday. They fit right in with no mods at all and perform good as any other lipo I've run. I believe thats what Schreff and Larry where running in there foam cars too. I know Schreff ran the older 5000 losi lipo in his rubber car and liked it.

Thanks for the info Ron. I want to stick with an all Losi brand (BL Speedo/LiPO) for my car right now.

Hope to see you Guys at our Trophy Event next week!

Ron got it right. I ran the Losi 5000mah 20c pack in my Rubber car all day and the 4400mah 30c packs in my foam car. As you saw, the foam car was NOT lacking HP. I did nothing special either. I took the packs out the car each run and charged them back up @ 5 amps. I was not "heating" the packs or balancing. They took an average of 1800mah of charge each time as well after a foam tire run in 13.5 @ 360 Raceway.

You will not be disappointed if you try the Losi 4400mah 30c packs. Heck, Larry ran one that didn't fully charge for the last round of qualifying in foam and hot lapped both me and Mike Haynes. Bastard.

how often do you balance the losi lipos and do the they go out of balance quick.
i was just wondering because i didn't balance my orion lipo for 3 month and when i did balance it it wasn't even off balance.

Not that we need a new car as the current one is still working well but I don't see any new development on the current car and with Losi promoting RTR are we likely yo get a new tourer?

I'm not concerned about car development right now, but I'd be one happy camper if Losi/Horizon could find it in their hearts to give us 114 and 110, and possibly a 106 spur gear for the R. Probably not going to happen, but I figured it can't hurt to mention it...

They do alot of racing work... it seems to be over shadowed by the latest releases of RTR's from them though. For example, XXX-CRT and 8ight 2.0.

It's tough to say when I'll balance the packs. I just got them a couple weeks ago and probably only have about 5 cycles on the 2 packs I have. When I did hook them up to the balance cable to check, they were right on the money anyway.
