Whilst not mega high grip, the Mendip track does run nitro/foam most of the time, so there is decent enough levels of grip, and I know Steve improved his fastest time by about 0.3s going to the high rollcentres... so they go on the car for now

Only addition I've put on is the roll bars atm, but thats more to test fit the link lengths etc and check the bar tweak (which interestingly, was pefect first time out ), for first practise they are coming off.

As for a modified MMP setting, Chris has been running an old Peak 3.5t (equiv to a SP v2) with his MMP and the following settings;

FDR; 8ish (I quote.. )
CHEAT Timing; 14
CHEAT RPM; 25000-32000
Start Power; Medium
Dead Band; Smallest

Not sure on punch control settings, but otherwise, cars a rocket

Regards
Ed
You know your track has good grip when you have no choice but to run low roll centers to keep the car on its wheels

I think most want extra top decks because we are modifying them for different flex characteristics.

mine was cut to thin for clearing the bullet conectors and I had the screws out of the uprights so it twisted and cracked between the bullet conector and servo horn opening. My fault, should have left the cut uprights on it instead of uprights and no screws

I got my new layshaft today, thanks Pablo.
Is there a way to use the stock spurs with it?
Otherwise what spurs is everyone else using?

The FF layshaft is intended to hold TC specific spurs such as Robinson, PRS, etc.

I had a FF layshaft for a while but didn't put it on yet. I already clearanced my lipos and I have a whole bunch of Losi kevlar spurs already. Another Type R racer also gave me his Losi spurs when he switched over to the FF shaft so i'll be good for a while lol.

I painted up my new body for the Type R last night, pretty simple design but I think it will stand out on the track. All I need now is my spool and it will be complete, then I will be challenging the top guy at our track...

The car is super fast on carpet! I can't wait to see it on our outdoor track.
A great kit to buy if you want to be fast in a hurry.

My car performed well yesterday, felt nice and consistent, still has some push which I am struggling to eliminate. One problem I keep having is the LCDs keep chewing up, they seem to wear the rubber seal that hold the pins in, then the pin flies out, I have brand new front c-hubs, so they shouldn't be a problem.
Does anyone else have this problem? I'm going through rebuild kits like they are going out of fashion.

I have had no problems with the LCD's for more than one year of running this chassis, others even longer. I rebuild every race meet due to outdoor racing but they would be good for a couple used indoors especially on carpet. I use a long tube of heatshrink from my local electronics store and chop off a little for each rebuild, shrink it down then trim it so there is no overhang. It works a treat. In fact so good I don't use the grub screws in the rear RCD's anymore but heat shrink there as well!

I tried the heatshrink too, but they still wear, I can't even finish a race without losing one at the moment.

I can't understand why you are having such a big problem... I have been lazy sometimes and run quite a few meets without touching the LCD's. I hate to say it but you must be doing something funny or wrong with the heatshrink. Is there anyone else running the losi at your local? Maybe get them to show you what they are doing with their LCD's. I'll try to post some pics later.
