Nope, just wanted to.

Here is some info regarding Sorex tires, looks like the "flow" of tires will start back up again pretty soon: http://www.rcracing.com/msgthread.cf...SiteMessages=2

If so, how is it? I noticed that they are using the 41 tooth diff pulley in the rear.

Also, what are rate are the orange and white springs that he is using. Also, are the Losi springs? if not, whose are they?

I have a race this weekend on a newly sealed asphalt parking lot.

thanks.

My first impressions of the XXXS is very good. In 3 hours of practice I had the car up to pace and after I got done I could really see where I can get the car to go faster in specific sections of the track with some more tuning. It appears to me the car has more corner speed than the Pro3 or the TC3 and accelerates as fast as the TC3 (touring's benchmark for acceleration).

But to answer your question...right now I'm very much liking the XXXS better. Everything about the car seems right. The suspension geometry looks great, the drivetrain is very smooth and free, tunning is very easy, the parts quality is great, maintence is very easy, and the car is supper smooth on the track.

Does anyone know if the Tema Associated Shock Springs will fit the Losi threaded Shocks? I wonder because Team Associated released a set of Springs for the TC3 but I have heard that the TC3 Springs are very good springs. Here is some info of why I am interested in this....

TC3 Complete Spring Kit

All Associated TC3 springs in one handy, see-through carrying box. Nine pairs of springs from the lightest (green, 12.0 lbs per inch) to the heaviest (white, 40.0 lbs. per inch). Includes listing of each spring and its weight.

Part numbers and pricing:
#3988, TC3 Complete Spring Kit, $34.99

Availability:
Shipping mid-Sept.

Associated springs are quite a bit smaller in diameter than Losi springs, I can't say for certain but I'm pretty sure they'd be too small to work on the Losi shocks.

why not just use the TL springs. buying the complete set would cost you about $25. granted the are a few wts to fill between the blue and purple but you could supplement that with springs from other manufacturers.

besides more often that not, others that drive the XXXs will be using the TL springs which should make copying setups from others and the factory that much easier.

Yea, if it were me I would just build up a set of the Team Losi springs. So far I have done just fine between indoors and outdoors tracks using just the pairs of purple and silver that came with the kit, along with a full set of four blue springs that I picked up.

Like MDawson said, it makes it a lot easier to copy somebody elses setup...

Rons setup is a really good one. We have used it for highbite and moderate bite asphalt tracks. The setup works well for tighter/technical layouts.

I did use the 41. The car has more onpower steering on entrance and less on exit.

The Orange Springs are 8.6 and the Whites are 7.6.

The setup is a good baseline

Thanks for the advice guys. I will ge the Losi springs. I had heard that the Assocaited springs were really good and back when the shelf weapon was still being made I heard people complaining on how the losi springs were not made with a great tolerance for the rate being the same.

Thanks

It is the first I have heard of that. I miss that affectionate term of 'Shelf Weapon'. The same car that won the worlds.

I just measured my collars; front are at about 2mm of preload, rear is about 5mm. I have shortened the front shock shafts by .100 as well.

For open tracks I go to F-blue/50-56, R-silver/50-55. To get the car to rotate quicker. An option would be F-pink, R-white.

Hope that helps. In all cases, I kept the 41.
