Ok, so I go to the LHS today and pick up some new wheels cause stupid newbie me glued one of the stock inserts to the stock wheels that came with the kit. Anyways, I get home and the hex part on the inside of the wheel is too big! Are there some adapters I can get? Are most wheels this way? I mean, do most not fit the Losi setup? I dunno, but I like the wheels, do I just have to take them back?

Thanks,
Jits

Jitsuguy- Did you buy your car used? If so all you have to do is buy the wheel adapters in order to use standard wheels. Losi includes both size wheel adapters in the kit.

Hey Dan-o......how have the Losi's been holding up to the Associated on carpet with foam in the stock class? I'm with you in that the Losi handles heads and tails above the Associated, but there is no question that my lap times are faster with the TC3. Just a shame because the Losi is soooooo smooth and easy to drive.

Has anyone gone from a XXX-S to a X-Ray? I seem to get a lot better laptimes with the X-Ray then my XXX-S. With a TC3 I was getting barely faster laptimes.

we finally finished milling the XXX-S chassis and bulkheads. The final weight loss is as follows.

Chassis: 5.7oz to 4.9oz
Front Bulkhead: .5oz to .3oz
Rear Bulkhead: .5oz to .3oz

Should have pictures later today and race results next weekend.
