No change in setup, just change your style.

Practice for double the time you normally would. Try to roll through corners instead of braking before...

Hey gang, if you are looking to make your ride shine check into the new stainless steel screw and wheel nut kits we have in stock. Stop by the website for more information.

If you can think of anything else we should add just drop me a pm or email.

Hey Dingus

only run a one-way if you are happy with your car with a standerd
diff.A one-way can make you slower if you are not used to it so go and practice before you race with it.That's my advise I am useing a one-way diff and it took me a few batts. to get used to the car.enjoy clocking faster times with your one-way.

Any body know what's different between the servo horn for airtronics and the servo horn designated for ko (can't remember how it's labelled but it's a different horn) in the kit?
The reason I ask is that I broke the servo horn on my ko servo. A couple of people I know are using airtronics horns and my xxx uses the same type of servo horn for both types of servo.
It seems odd that associated use two different horns whereas losi use just one.
Is there a difference between the metal geared and plastic geared ko servo outputs? I noticed that the horn was a much tighter fit on my metal geared servo.

Thanks for the advice! I just wanted a little more corner speed with the one way. Car is really hooked up with the diff, but need a little speed.

I do plan on a few packs of practice first though.

dw- to run the Ko with your car you want the "J" horn. J for JR, they have the same spline thingy as KO.

Ok, back from my travels (again). Even though my company pays to send me to training for my job, I just sometimes hate travelling. Something ALWAYS goes wrong....

Oh well. Back to the fun of RC!!!!

Hey Kraig....your stainless screw kit. Is it enough for just one car or do you put a few extra in the kit?

Tony, I believe there is enough to do only 1 car. I don't think they put any extra in there unless it was by accident.

rob k
I know the manual says to run the j horn.
I ran this on my ko 2015 (plastic geared) for some time.
I replaced it with a metal geared ko 2113 (think that number's right).
The servo horn was a very tight fit on the servo. A couple of meetings later the horn cracked around the splined section.
I tried to scrounge a servo horn off a friend and was told that both he and his son used the airtronics horns on their ko servos.
I fitted the airtronics horn from my kit and it seems ok. I want to know what the difference between the two servo horns is as it isn't obvious although the old horn is very second hand making comparisons difficult.
My losi xxx uses the same servo horn for both airtronics and ko servos. Is the difference in the length of the two associated horns?

Dragonslayer: Ya, ran it awhile back. IMO, it mellowed the car out. Alot. I felt like it had a less drastic effect that the oneway diff, yet you could still use brakes. Only problem... with a high-power mod (is there anything OTHER kind of mod???), the shaft has a tendency to wobble right at the joint. Not good.

Default Center Drive Shaft Fix (no more popping out)

Here is what I did to fix the popping out "feature" of the center shaft. I put an O-ring in one cup and in the other cup, I took a spring from an old ball point pen and cut about 3 coils out of the center. I then placed that spring in the cup. I have not had my drive shaft pop out a single time. Another thing that this did was to make my TC3 a lot quieter. I have not tried this with a mod motor yet, but works great with a P2K2. forever!

I ran it in stock at Kinetix. No problems with popping out, but I did notice the wobble just by turning the wheels without the motor in. Don't know if it affected performance or not. I also didn't notice a drastic increase in speed. Felt like more off power steering, but on our carpet you need to be on power most of the time anyway. Don't think anyone uses brakes much in stock.

Hey Tony, I ran your intitial Kinetix setup last week and your final setup this week. I kinda like the camber links short better (initial). The car felt too quick?? for me.

What exactly is meant by "stability" vs traction in the camber links settings? Push? Slower reaction?
