Check the Losi page and the Rossetti's parking lot setup. This is a great starting point. Losi Bleu in front and Silver in back work for me with 35 to 50 Oil. Try to run the belt as loose as possible.

For stock I use in general 88/25 for MVP as well as P2K2 on a mid size track (about 20 seconds per round).

Mine won't push through. Did you recently buy your Hudy? Maybe the holes were enlarged in a new batch to accomodate the "American" size axles. I know mine will not fit my XXXS or NTC3 as with others I know of.

I've had my system for a year and three months, it was included as a bonus with my XRAY.

Hmmm I guess Hudy stuff isn't as exact as we all thought.

I would have to say the Losi isn't or that wear and tear has taken its toll on the Hudy blocks. I use the system after every race which sometimes is every week in a month but usually every two weeks.

My Losi right rear allowed the Hudy block to pop on with out any fuss and when using that same Hudy block on the right front to test consistantcy it was a tight fit.

It is not an easy fit. Some effort (force) is applied to get the block on the Losi, but it works, for me atleast.

Oh well, back to the Losi discussion, today I am going to get the bearings for the stock bell cranks. There is a ton of slop right now. So will the bearings for the stock bell crank work with aftermarket bell cranks? If not, I will go for the aftermarket solution.

Using the stock bell cranks is a start. I was advised not to used the black caps to have the bearings run more freely. I have now changed to the speedtech stuff. Great! Strong and no slop any more. You can use the same bearings for them.

Cool, thanks for the reply. I will stick with the stock bell cranks for now.

That's right, run the one-way in the rear and use the overdrive pulley up front. I read something about that on TTT I think.

I can't imagine that working very well. Would the car even turn?

I did not picture how down a long straight it operated like a front wheel drive. I could see how 100% brakes would work. From what I read, and it seems TTT refreshed their forum, there are a number of racers using it on asphalt.

Have you done anything to limit the steering throw? If not, click the link below:

That step prevents you from exceeding the CVD's operating limits.

Hey guys.......just got back from the track where I had the chance to drive my Losi in the modified class. This is the first time I've run mod in probably the last 4 years or so and I had an absolute blast!

Anyway, I've got two questions. First, I see that Losi has released both the steel and aluminum dogbones as a separate item. (When I first bought the car the only way you could get spare bones was by buying the whole CVD assembly.) Are the steel and aluminum bones interchangeable now or do you need to buy the aluminum CVD assembly first before you can buy just the bones? I thought that the aluminum CVD kits had a shorter axle or something, so there might be a reason I couldn't just swap the steel with the aluminum. Hoping I'm wrong though because the aluminum bones are only $8 a piece.

Second.....for those of you who are using the low roll center option, when you want to run high roll center again do you need to purchase new front and rear bumpers? Would be nice if you could use the same bumpers for both high and low after you've cut off required sections.
