orion platinum 2 lipo.

I am waiting on my hobby store to get the new losi lipo battery holder. I am not sure where to mount my receiver and speed control. I am not sure how comfortable I am using the mounting points the manual shows since the speed control has a fan, I wanted it a bit more connected. Could some of you post up some pics or linkify me to some routing configurations. I want a clean look. WIth proper weight balance.

Thanks

Adam
You can get away without a fan and a 10.5, the GTB is huge you don't have many options. I fit a speedpassion LPF on its side on the left front of the car attached to the post. On my rubber tire car I mounted the Sphere on the right in the middle since it also is huge and I didn't really want my speed control hanging halfway off the chassis.

Default Steering rack

I see alot of people using number 2 on the steering rack. What exactly does using 2 instead of 1 do? Does it make the steering more responsive? I currently have it on 1. thanks for the help.

Running the links closer to the inside on the rack will make the car have more high speed steering, but less low speed in most cases.

Thanks Mike..Then that might be a better setup for 360 since its a little tight?
I'm the guy you help with gearing last Friday at 360.

Honestly the setup i have been using since Vegas works well in high or low bite, and with most tires, id give that a whirl, it will be close enough to make a few small changes to suite your preference.

What spur gears are you guys using besides Losi for 10.5/13.5? I'd like to try something besides Kimbrough Spur gears...PRS are great, but I like to use 48P for outdoor asphalt, since 64P tend to strip and end races early.

Any 48P Spur Gears besides Kimbrough that work with the PRS Adapter? Robinson, PRS, RW, Xray?

Xray spur gears seem like they might work...anyone try them?

Is the 4* caster before the anti-dive is applied? Or do you have 6* C hubs, then a .030 shim?

Thanks

I have 4 degree blocks on the car, and then the shim, so total i guess is around 3 degree.

Yohan the xray spurs will bolt up fine, i usually use rw gears, i think they made 48p at one point as one of the guys up here always runs them.

I agree w/ Mike, XRay spur gears work awesome and the spacing is perfect!

I dont care what anyone says, The losi spur gears are far superior to anything else on the market. The only time I ever strip a spur is when I run a oneway on carpet.

I love the Losi Gears, but maybe its just me with their 64P gears stripping when getting hit and having to pull the car off the track It happens a lot with Schumacher Mi3 cars for some reason.


Thanks Mike, KwickV, and Larry for your quick responses
