Do you use slow set CA? Mine just dried out on the bud really quick.

Yeah I know what you are saying Gary....the losi is easy to work on but it looks like this car is just as easy so far. These shocks are the best around from what I have seen. The only complaint so far is that my diffs loosened up the first few runs but now are fine. Well if you are looking for a place to get some track time before the Reedy race check out AJ's raceway is DeKalb IL...... www.AJSraceway.com He has one of the best outdoor tracks around.....ultra smooth and wide lanes and the barrier system is top notch....no one else close to us has something like this place.

The fronts are TRC 28mm and the rears are 30mm cut down to 28ish mm....So far I know that TRC, Jaco and TM foams fit the car with out trouble.

I dunno. I liked how easy it was to access the front and rear diffs on the losi, along with the spur gear too. but i thought getting the mesh set on the losi was a pain in the rear. other then that I think the cars are equil for wrenching on. I just wish I could have tried the new belt setup before I sold my G+.

We've got a place up here to run that's pretty awesome. We run on a loading dock where Don Passehl works. It's billard table smooth with similar traction to the Tamiya track. We've been practicing there for the TCS nats for almost 5 years now, and it's been a great test site. but I may have to come to AJ's just to get some practice in traffic. This dual Diff thing is gonna suck though.

Hi Scott,

Yeah it was easy to get to the diffs with the old belt but with the black belt and new tensioner I had to take everything out so I could get enough slack in the belt and it made this more work now....but the black belt made a huge improvement to the speed of the car. Thats cool that you guys have a place to practice at locally.....is it outdoors or is it inside? Did you get into the Reedy race? did they list the people that got in yet?

The end of May. Even if I don't get in, I am taking a car along to try to get some laps in before the TCS Nats...

cotton buds?

Ear swap things?

they start to smoke a bit when you put CA on it.
Also, the fibers sometimes get stuck on the chassis with the ca I find.

man there is gotta be some other easier way of sealing the chassis.

the chassis is the only part you'll need to seal... the upper deck and shock towers I leave as is....

No. I loosened the diff and it seems to go away. But when it gets tightened down it gets that rachet feel to it. It feels like there are flat spots on the balls, but ???

I'm not too worried about it at the moment.
