Illfactor,

it's only a matter of finding the right dyes.
The greenish yellow shock collars were supposed to be a darker green, but the alu didn't take it too well
The blue is a special anodizing dye that I bought at a plating shop (expensive).

I will be looking for some more colors.
So far, I can do all kinds of blue shades, the neon" yellow, red and gold.

I'd like to get a bright orange and a bright green.

What parts would you wanna have done?

You want the red matching the MF parts?

Natural is no problem.

Just got my XXX-S and finish assembling it. A bit disappointed at first, the package is sort of one bevel washer and the thrust washer is bent.

Anyway....

I got some trouble fixing up my Express wheel on the 12mm hex
hub supplied. I wonder if there is a compatible Aluminium hex hub that I can use ?

I also find if I followed the instruction, my front ride height become very high as compared with the rear. I also notice that the arms are not level with the ground. This seems strange to me because all of the other touring car that I have seems have arms level or arms point up on the ends.

It seems that the shocks are too long for the car.

This is unlike my Yokomo MR4-TC where it seems more balance out of the box.

If I understand other people in this thread coreectly and from what I have seen the front shocks are two long for the front with the car set at high roll center. Losi makes a shorter shock set kit or you can cut them down. MDawson has a good site on this car and can tell you how much to cut off the shaft and the ball cup. Or you can put the lower roll center blocks on the car by Trinity or Speedtech and then you mount the pivot blocks in the lower holes which eliminates this problem. Sorry to be brief but it would take for ever to explain it here, just goto MDawson's site it will help greatly.

thanks.
I'll keep those, 1 outdoor set and one for carpet.

You can go ahead and buy some shock bodies and send them to me.

This may be a dum question. What is a cvd driveshaft? Is it the say thing as the axle or dogbone?

The CVD is the description for the whole drive assembly from the diff outdrive through to the wheel connection on the stub axle. CVD stands for constant velocity driveshaft. The dogbone is as its name implies the bone shaped driveshaft linking between the diff outdrive and the ball joint on the axle. the axle is the threaded component that you connect the wheel onto and spins in bearings (or bushes) in the spindle carriers.

Hope this helps

Rich

ongbenghui: The stock Losi wheel hubs should fit any standard-size touring car tire. There are two different size hubs that come in the Losi kit; make sure you try both of them. The smaller one is for Losi-branded wheels, the larger one is for regular touring wheels.

For the front/rear ride height difference, I can only think of a few things. First, make sure that you have the droop screws in the right places. The longer ones go in the rear, the shorter ones in the front. Second, to reduce the ride height you can lay the shocks down a bit. Third, assuming you are still running the standard clamp-style shocks with the kit, you can move the collars all the way up the shock, so they are almost half-off the shock, and then clamp them. This is how I had to run mine to get the ride height I wanted, until I got the threaded shock bodies.
