AE-Racer, those cvds cost me $29. The auction was at $21 with 3min to go and a bidding war broke out. It was a matter of me really wanting them. I wanted a pair for the rear only.

Fire, the MF bumper is in one the pics I posted. It's much more dense than the stock one as TSR6 stated.

I used some 10 inch long pieces of 3/32 music wire. I mounted the arms, then stuck the music wire through the outer hinge pin holes in the arms. I then checked the angle of the wire in relation to the sides of the chassis. It looked identical on both sides.

Then I took the same pieces of music wire and stuck them through both hub carriers and tightened the setscrews. When I placed the hub carriers on a flat board, the wires should have been parallel. They weren't.

I don't have the Losi anymore, or I'd take some pictures of what I'm trying to describe.

Looks different to me>

The hub carriers have a lower and upper holes, and the rear pivot block looks different. Does anybody know if this upgrades are out yet.

thanks for the info on the bumper guys~~
hopefully i don't need to replace one in the near future

i think the rear toe has something to do with the inner front pivot block, if let it alone when tightening it then will pointing at different angles

it's the same brace, it has just been shaved for weight.

deutch - all i would add to your bill is a 64 pitch 118 or 128 tooth spur gear. at that point you shouldnt need anything else. but if you think about tuning options you may want to get different graphite castor blocks, and different degree rear toe blocks.

deutch-

If you are going to run rubber tires, on any kind of medium to high traction surface, you'll likely be needing a oneway. You don't really need anything aluminum - maybe the pivot blocks for low and high roll center once you get into setup mode.

It's been reported before, seems like it's a normal thing when the car is new, and the side to side movement of the belt goes away after it's been run a while.It's normal for a diff to have a bit of side to side play, assuming you mean the pulley is free to wobble slightly. The entire diff shouldn't have any significant side to side movement in the bulkhead tho.

Thanks for the info, guys.

One more question: What bearing and diff lube do you guys recommend? Does it really matter?

BTY, this board has a ton of useful info and has made my decision making process much easier.

Thanks again.
