Merry Christmas. Do you use set-up wheels? Is there any setup wheels that fit directly without modification on the xxx-s cvds? What about the Hudy set up tools? They dun fit either. What tools do you use to actually set up your xxx-s? Thanks.

I actually use the Yokomo Setup wheels. They work great. You will have to bore out the axle hole just a tad.

I use the setup wheels, MIP Tweak Station and the Integy Alignment Station.

Give it time Blade. You cant do it all overnight. It will come together. Just gotta do it a little at a time.

MDawson,

how heavy is your car now? And how did you bore out the hole in the intergy station and the setup wheels? I think you forgot to add in the yok hexes into the list.

I haven't weighed my car. Not an issue for me.

My car carries speed well and as far as accelerating; I have no problem pulling a holeshot or two. There are some guys that will drill there chassis to nothing. I am more concerned with a car that can stay consistent and together in a race.

I guess you could say that I am an onroad racer with an offroad mentality.

I didnt have to bore the Integy Station but did with the Yokomo Setup Wheels. Ust use the same OD drill bit as the axle. Dont recall what the bit was.

Yes,- I did forget to add the wheel hexes. Did I miss anything else, hahahaha.

ottoman: I know mr. losi has tried the low roll and I know he likes it. right Matt? haha

I have the same low roll on my car and I like it too. I think it's the way to go for carpet. The car kept its speed in the sweeper turns much better, and overall just felt less jumpy. Everything was smoother.

MDawson: which bumper do you have on your car? I don't recognize that blue monstrosity. I held off on the MF bumper 'cause I wasn't down with the red. I'm still waiting on the Losi bumper brace that I ordered. Have you tried or heard anything about the BRP wide front lower bumper plate for the car? Supposed to protect the arms, though I haven't broken a single one yet so I don't really know if it's worth it. I just keep looking at the front of my car and feeling like I should do something to it...
