Actually the way it is designed is to give a little. You merely need it locked down enough to not slip under hard acceleration.

Hi,

I just purchased one of these cars and will be running on asphalt almost exclusively. I was informed that this car is better suited for carpet than asphalt. I was wondering if this car is as competitive on asphalt as it is on carpet?

Thanks

The car is very competitive on asphalt.

Great, thanks. I would imagine that as with most cars, you need to find a setup that works for you and the particular surface on which you are racing.

I ran the same spool all summer with no problems at all, I think I replaced the outdrive with the nut in it one time. Ran 10.5 mostly some 13.5 with no slippage.

Hey Mr Losi, Thanks for posting that, but I see a couple things missed.

Front Camber
Front diff height
Rear arm spacing

Also, no sway bars at all?

Losi sells a spool pulley. This is actually the part you want instead of making one out of your current parts.http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...-PULLEY/Detail

That is the wrong pulley, the R pulleys have a larger diameter inner hole, that pulley that you provided a link for is for the JRXS and the XXX-S. It won't work unless you run the original JRXS diff setup on your car currently.

Oops, sorry- guess I didn't look into it that much.
