Tory, I would like to thank you for your patience during the long wait for the new batch. For anyone who has had to wait, thankyou and please understand that the delays have been in no way the fault of Skyrocket.

We are now producing parts in much larger numbers to prevent these delays from happening. The Spools and Outdrives are not far away and the new outdrives will be great. So far in testing, none have failed. They can be used in the diffs as well and should be slightly less in cost than the origional Losi parts.

I switched my front diif to be low and it seems like my main belt is now rubbing on the chassis right as it leaving the slot that is cut in the chassis for pulley clearance. Am I doing something wrong or do i have to change something

I run foam carpet with no traction compound. I also run the stock 42 pulleys

No that sounds right to me. I had to file the edge of the slot to clear the belt.

Ah thanks. I did start to dremel it, but figured i'd ask. Your spool dropped me almost a 1/2 second per lap consistently on the not so common foam tire with no traction compound set up. Spools are now the must have at the track!

I had to file mine as well. I'm running foam on carpet w/ 2 diffs and had to file front and back.

On the chassis I run outside on asphalt i file it a little more than the foam ones to allow for rocks.

But you can also order them from me i have a ton of stuff in stock. I have to edit my website and put all the parts online. These stupid MAP pricing rules from horizon are getting on my nerves too because i can't stay competitive with ebay people.

Default Camber?

We were playing with different cars on the setup board last night and noticed that the losi has lots of camber gain through the suspension travel, I see that most peoples setups have equal camber front and rear. Would it gain any steering by reducing some camber on the front from 2 to 1.5 so that more of the tire would be in contact with the carpet in the turns? Running rubber tire, 17.5. Thanks, Greg.

Camber gain depends on setup. You can have lots or nearly none depending on the angle and length of your top links. Running a standard front top link will always give a lot of gain.

I like to run a lot of gain and very little static camber, sometime as low as only 3/4 degree neg camber. This works well for me on med/high bit asphalt. It also is the only way to get good even tyre wear.

I am in the same boat as Pablo, I run around 1 degree of static camber in the front and almost none in the rear. The result is even tire wear, and jaco blue's last a long time!! Also, download the roll centre calculator, set your static roll centre so that it sits right above ground. If you have to adjust ride height, do it. You will notice that the car responds well.

Good luck

Default Tire compound for rubber

Which tire compound do you prefer for rubber carpet.

would you use a different compound for a high bite/ vs a low bite track ?

Is there any certain compound you wouldn't use and why ?

Mike
