I would use black grease on your thrust bearings and ae stealth grease on the balls, there is nothing better. Accept no substitutes.

You said, "grease on the balls, there is nothing better"

But I agree. I always used those two.

No picture, but yes it looks similar except that the cage is silver and you can tell that it's made from a thicker material. I have used them with much better luck than the stock ones.

Anyone have the spring micrometer measurements in chart format? All my stickers are off my springs and I have no clue which is which. I can thank the previous owner. Could be worse things in the world than to not have labeled springs.

Thanks fellas!
Chris
1)The Type-R diffs fit in the JRXS bulkheads, but the outdrives are located more inboard on those Type-R diffs.
2)The pivot block mounting holes are not interchangeble, so no, they would not bolt up.

On a side note, since the belts are on opposite sides of the car, the Type-R cannot accept the old one-way front diff. However, if you're running VTA, you could widen the rear of the old car by using the Type-R rear arms/CVDs! (but the CVDs will barely engage the outdrives.)

Thanks! I just dug this back up and ordered 4 from their site. I'm hoping they last the indoor racing season.

Unless you have 2 cars w/ diffs front and rear i think you ordered 3 too many . These things are indestructible ... trust me i tried!!!

I guess I'll have to see if they fit the T1FK05, the XXX-T CR, and the E4JS... I'm so used to seeing them come out crushed and the races demolished from "normal wear" I didn't want to take any chances.

Personally I have had no problem with the kit thrust but I have tried the xray and it does seem better. Add top that I have never heard of any xray driver having problems with their thrust bearings so you would have to conclude that they do a good job.

A rather strange question....

Which can be easily solved by some fellow american losi user.

Which kind of belt is fitted on the losi type R?

I mean: Gates powergrip Gt3 or what?

Thanks in advance!!!

That would be an interesting question. These belts are the best I have ever seen on a TC. They just don't wear out and are very low friction!

Just took a look at the Gates site, this would be interesting! I know i've burned through a couple belts on my kyosho already i'll have to see if they make a belt that will fit it!
