That's my theory too... I got a 3.1ish chassis plate on my latest kit (yes I now have 2 typeR's ). Cut out the top deck, Urbain style, and have put it on the car, and now feels quite good when flexing by hand... I also figure that as most of our tracks for the nationals in the UK are pretty large, a stiffer chassis should help with the keeping the corner speed up a little...

I believe that the chassis layout offers more potential than the current crop of look a likes. As long as losi is the only chassis with this advantage it will continue to be strong against the rest until someone truly does improve on the design.

Nice!
Two race winning setups from two top drivers.
You can't ask for much more.

I can personally tell you all that these cars were HOOKED up.

Donny/Mike
Traction went away quite a bit at night.
Did you guys adjust anything before the main from these setups?

Or I guess a better question would be if traction were to increase significantly,what would be the 1st thing you would adjust on this setup?

Donny and Mike.

Thanks for the setups and good to see some top class US drivers coming back. Why the Xray springs and also why even different styles of Xray springs?

Considering buying a big 5400mAh+ capacity pack which stands a good 25mm tall and also thinking of swapping to JRX-S at the same time.

Any help appreciated, cheers!

I've been running the 5400 25c Fantom/Thunderpower for more than a year now and they fit fine, the 5600 50c IP also fit fine no dremeling needed.

We tried a bunch of little stuff thoughout the day, mainly rear toe and spring adjustements. Our cars would have been insane had the track not thrown everyone a curveball, never before has the track gotten .5 a lap slower at night, everyone had a large push.

The xray springs in my opinion make the car carry better cornerspeed, the 2.2 in the rear is the softest spring i could find, however its way too soft for the front. It has a different coil style that makes it much softer then the colored set, just lets the car set and rotate nicely.

Probably the the 17 front and 12 rear would be close, but it is a different feel so id try to get a hold of the springs.

What about 2.4 or 2.6 Xrays in the front as oppossed the colored one you used?

Crazy thing is the Xray guys like to use HPI spring because they carry more corner speed than the Xrays!

Many thanks for the battery help guys, much appreciated.

...I had my eye on the 50C Intellect pack, so that's handy to know. Cheers YmeBP.

My freshly arrived chassis plate is 2.85mm. The previous one that got hammered was a 3.12mm, and the one on my other R is 3.05mm.... Hmmmm

I had tried the laser series and the hpi up front. They all respond differently and for my tatstes the xray colors up front and laser rear was ideal. The hpi felt to abrupt but it is always a tuning option. The losi like to be sprung softer then the xray since it has less side to side weight transfer

Its funny you say that cause I made that same assumption and had no luck. The usual rates just worked better... It might just be a better match for my driving style too...
