Well so then I ask the question what's up with Losi? The Type R is on special or close out by just about every shop. Are they discontinuing the chassis as I had it under consideration as I get back into the hobby.

No, the car isn't being discontinued.

If you haven't already noticed... touring isn't exactly the "big thing" right now. Sure, Brushless/Lipo is helping bring some new racers, but attendance at most places are on a decline and shops have been closing. I know in our area, we've already lost a few places to go and I personally have to drive a minimum of 2 hours just to race carpet somewhere.

Also, the Type R is a TON cheaper for Hobby Shops than other kits. The TC5 and Type R are the cheapest cars on the market, cost wise. If you see Type R on Close Out or Discount, the shops are still making money on it. Believe me on that. Be thankful the shops can still make their money even discounting it as much as they do.

Even look at X-Ray now. For the first time in like 5 years, they are NOT making a new car. That has to say something for the market place our wonderful little hobby is going through right now.

Thank you for answering the question Schreff as I am seriously looking at the Type-R again.

The car works very well and you have plenty of support on this forum on how to get it to work for you. Do not hesitate in buying a Type R at all. If Horizon is still making parts for the XXXS, I am sure we will be getting parts for the Type R with no problem.

Got a barely run type r from a friend and just finished changing it over to a rubber setup. Quite impressed with the ease of working on it and the fit/finish. Couple questions came up.

On swaybars how do you determine where to place the little collar along the bar?

How to tell the difference between long/short ball studs for steering and camber link ball studs?

Also when running anti-dive or just shimming up the block, do you need to put a shim under all 3 things(locator pin and 2 screws) under each block? I just put one but wasn't sure.

I put them on the end.

You will notices the ball stud shank to be a different length, compare with others in the car and your bound to notice a different size...note the car comes with all long....but if you look at the a1233 bag those are short.

I just put the washers where the screws are.

Guys, I'm having issues with the rear of my car (rubber). Its loose at corner exit, Not much but when I go strait, the rear wants to go too far. Im on carpet but the grip isn't that high.

I tried different wheels hex... I end up running the wide up front and the .195 in the rear.

Front high and rear low roll center. I tried with the long rear link, It almost fixed it but the car didn't react fast enough in the sweepers.

Tried flat and anti dive in the front, with anti-dive, it felt like the car had less off power steering at the corner entry and pretty much the same at exit.

running .030 sway bar front and rear 17.5F, 15R springs. when I ran the .040, I tried removing the rear sway but suprisily it was worst.

I played with the droop but didn't fixed it either

Now What I'm thinking to do ... (Let me know if you have other ideas or feedback)
- 40W oil in the rear (currently 35)
- Rear kickup (.030 shim underfront block)
- Maybe try the Jr Link
- diff height?

Thanks in advance
