Losi '009 Type R? Are you being sarcastic or there is something in the works?

I think Hudy didnt use shrink wrap cause they don't want to get sued by Losi, but he know shrink wrap is way~ better in inside of his heart

If I remember right, the LCD's used on the XXX-4 use setscrews to hold them together. Can you expect anything else from Xray though?

I知 going to try and run schreffler's set up that he posted. But I知 not sure if I will get the parts to run a standard link in the front instead of the Jr link. How much of a difference would it make if I just run the Jr link?

The JR link makes the front of the car roll less, which makes it more stable. It also makes it more lazy which will remove some of that initial turn-in that you get with the standard links. The largest item with the JR link is that it virtually removes all camber gain from the front of the car. That, alone, takes away a lot of steering with the Type R. The car is very sensitive to camber link changes.

I had the same problem... I shortened the pin by grinding the ends down with a dremel. make it small enough so that it is not too short in case you need to use the losi spurs.

Anybody have a rollout for foam tires on carpet, small, tight track. I am at 40.22mm, 44/108 and 57.5mm two stages. Anybody else have any experiences or suggestions. Car feels pretty good just getting pulled down the stragiht a bit. Running the Losi 13.5 and speedo.
