Thanks!

Mike,
Looking at pics of that topdeck, looks like any Lipo with bullet plugs on the front corners (SMC, Thunderpower, Reedy, Intellect etc etc.) would interfere with the top deck. Only packs with bullets moved in towards the center will work. Am I looking at this right?

Thanks

Hi Donny,
Actually, those are prototype pics. The ones in stock are 6mm wider so most wider bullet plug packs should be fine.

Thanks,

Diff Dust Cover

Some lexan, scissors, compass and a hobby knife plus 5 minutes equals dust covers for my diff

i've seen a few ways to do it, but essentially (In my personal opinion of course), I think I'll just reserve my type-r for carpet. Tried it on asphalt and it was a dream...!

Until dirt got to the diffs

How does the kit rubber setup do for indoor carpet? I need a setup for a tight indoor carpet track with med grip...amybody point one out?
How does a spool effect handling and what situations should I use one over a diff or one way.? I will be running 17.5 RCGT type class.

I'm basically running the asphalt setup from the manual, with 40wt in the front and 30wt in the rear. I haven't tried a spool, but I am liking the front diff with the brown grease. Also, the biggest thing I've found is the car likes the steel battery tray. It made an amazing difference to the handling.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

I have as issue with the front shafts.

When the steering is turned, the wheels are almost impossible to rotate. The CV's are VERY tight. Is this normal?

At first, yes. Take it out now!

I recommend to run them in by hand (I fill it up with metal polish) until they loosen abit.

If you do run them now, you'll waste the shrink wrap because the pins will be pushed out. No you can't reuse them (shrink wrap).

After 3 packs they will be free

WOndering what Lipo do you use? thanks!

thanks man.

I was wondering about taking it apart for cleaning. Does the lexan come off everytime? No drama? What about the slots in the plastic outdrive?

I tried to use heat shrink and in the end my diff became so tight it's dysfuntional.

Currently I was thinking of reserving the losi ONLY for carpet races. Unless someone can change my mind *looking forward to that honestly
