what wrenches are you guys using for the wheels nuts and shock nuts? All my tools are metric and I got the car used so I am looking for something like a cross wrench. I got the RPM pne for Losi cars but it doesn't fit the wheel nuts.

if the picts are on a server already you should be able to click the "IMG" button and put in the url for a pict then do it again, again, and again, etc

if you need to attach them then I think you can only do one per post

11/32 for the wheel nuts, 1/4 for the shock nuts, and 3/16 for the ball studs.

I figured that out but was more wondering what brand/style of wrenches people are using, I am thinking about getting the integy set. I wish there was a small cross wrench that fit them all.

Default Vibration in steering

If I hold the car in my hand and the steering is at the left or right endpoint the front wheels are vibrating very hard and the motor slows down a bit. Looks like the front CVDs can not work fine at full steering angle. If I take out the CVDs they feel smooth, no binding. Is it a common problem? Should I limit the steering endpoint?

ttr: read back through some of the post for more info.

You need to limit the steering with some small washers...


Check pic also....

Hope this helps...

I've seen that now on a few of the XXX-S including spashett's. Other than just a stop what does that do?? Can't you achieve the same effect by taking some of the throw out on the radio?

Default steering stops

If you only dial out throw on the transmitter, your wheel can still travel (Accident or heavy stress) with the give from the servo saver. By putting the stop in place, the wheel wont turn any further, and you wont risk damaging your cvds.

would be nice if losi just pre molded this in place...

Default Trinity touring car wrench

I think that is what the four way wrench is called that Trinity makes for standard touring cars. Just don't get the metric one. Quick question, have any of you tried the Trinity spur gear adapter? I was considering it because the standard spurs seem to be pretty warped. If you have any input I would appreciate it.

highx: yes, on the adapter.... Works ok, you will have to use thin spur gears though....

I'm using Trinity wrenches, the only issue is the 11/32 wheel wrench wouldn't fit into Sorex 5 spoke rims, I had to grind the outer diameter of the wrench down a lot to get it in. It did fit every other wheel I've ever used with no problem.

Default Carpet Setup

I have a finalized setup for carpet foams. The hitch is that at our track we run full size TRC foams (62.5mm) to save on costs. So please read the bottom of the setup sheet to explain how to reset droop as the tires get smaller. If you have trued tires then the droop settings will be to much for your car. Droop was set with a Losi gauge at the lowest part of the arm (angled down side). FYI - I own a carpet track so a lot of testing went into this, if you have any questions feel free to ask. The track is a 75x36 with 8 second laps in mod, so this setup has more steering then most of the setups I have tried or made in the past.
