I was trying to keep the car from scrubbing speed in the corner. It worked but witha few side affects which made me go back to the stock settings. 1 it would break the knuckles easier and 2 it cuts down on your low speed turning but quite a bit. I may have made mine a little too long.

With the weather breaking here. All or most of the carpet tracks closed for the season this last weekend. And I will have to wait till next year, if I try it again.

OIC.... you may want to experiment with the SD knuckles...they are a little longer and I think they share the same bearing size...

sanding is easy and stuff but applying CA is the hardest for me...

I used Losi thick ca on the main plate when i built the car and it came out ok but this thin stuf... DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT USING IT!!!

won't stay on the edge of the chassis very well...

Will CA debonder remove the ca and give my clean surface on the upper deck back?

Gary.....The losi car was good but with a new car that they may or may not be working on I figured that I better get out of my XXXS G+ while I still could. And the Pro-4 has always looked good to me.....and now after driving it Im nothing but happy with it. So far its faster then my Losi was and I had my Losi car working really well....but this is even better with less track time.

it's a little stronger but it works great... I use acetone thinner.

I hear you kevin, but I am still debating about getting my hands on a Losi for the Reedy Race...I just am more familure with it than my Pro 4 or my Evo 3 at this time. The Losi is still a decent car, and in some ways a little easier to work on too.

i use cotton buds to apply a thin layer of glue, this prevents any disasters.
