No problem man! The newer style with the extra hole in the knuckle is just that, an extra hole. All the new stock carriers and knuckles have both holes. You may be able to find some old stock with the single hole if you really want to. The original hole is still in the standard place on the knuckle. Hope this helps.

Is the spacing the same on the bearing seats for the axles? I have tried the newer ones and had some binding problems with the axle and hubs. And is the ball stud hole in the same place for the new to the old?

Thanks

You shouldn't have any problem putting the new ones on...it is possible that the screw is too long or the small bushings are worn out which could cause binding. Sometimes when putting ann new pieces together the the knucle dosn't move freely when the screw and ball stud are really tight, you have to just snug them up and check for free movement.

Can you explain it a little more? Rear hubs? Offset or standard?

I was told it was a production issue. One of the vendors is not doing their part. I actually called and asked. When it's ready somebody tell Team Losi I got my money ready, can I have a kit?

Hey POOKYT, I see your still hanging in there.

Big mistake though Pook!

Picking up a TA05 first, then going to another car... Once you get the other car, you'll always be telling yourself, 'it doesn't do xxxx quite as well as the TA05'...or...'it does it almost as well, but why does it cost so much more'.

As we say down here in Arkansas..." Its done too late!". I bought my son a TA-05 back last winter and I drove it a few times on the rug and a few times this year at our club asphalt track. Man, I have to say, right out of the box and bang-for-the-buck, its a great car! All it needed for Tucker my son was a set of the Tamiya aluminum shocks to keep it steady. The car was awesome to drive once I got the shocks installed. BTW--mine will have the cool shocks and graphite shock towers already installed! GT-1 and GT-2 here I come!

Any thoughts on how hard it will be to add enough weight to this car to make it "legal" (51oz). I run LiPo, but have to add quite a bit of weight to make it fair for the NiMH guys. On traditional chassis, that means it goes up high on the battery strap, since there's not enough places otherwise.

The more I race (and fall in love with) brushless and LiPo, the more I feel compelled to use a chassis that makes the most of it.

Sorry the new front hubs with two holes are slightly different some where because when i build them the axle binds when is on the car. The older hubs have no problems like this. I thought there might be some difference in the older XXX-S parts and the newer JRX-S parts.

You coult take out the extra shim betweent he outer bearing and the pin for the hex. That should free it up, and be sure to check that the bearings are going in all the way, they are a nice very snug fit.
