    It was a running change (I think). I don't think it's really ment for the XXXS drivers but maybe for the prototype off-road 4wd they have been working. It will change the ackerman of the car. I have one with the new holes which are about .150" infront of the original (the orignial is still there too). If you look closely on your friends chassis at the rear between the spur gear area and the rear shock tower mount you may see a molding ridge. I suspect that losi is using the same mold for both the prototype car and the xxxs but just placing a spacer in for the prototype.

    Another change on the new graphite chassis is in the battery area. There is ridges on the passenger's side of the battery that help keep the battery in, in the event of a hard hit.

    I've not got to play around with the new Ackerman position. I only get to race touring about once a month and if the car feels easy to drive and is up to speed I tend not to change much. If I get a chance next time I'll play with it and let you guys know how it changes the car. I suspect it will take some steering response away from the car. Might be good for low traction conditions.

    Later!
  • has anyone other then team drivers converted a xxx-s to a xxx4?
  • Tony Hines (SkipGear) has done it. He talked about it a bit in the Offroad Losi thread on this site. It handles pretty well. I haven't drove it but was watching Jesse Robbers turn laps with it and it was pretty good.
  • NEW ROAR bodies!!!
    You guys should check out the new Parma X20 body. Its based on the MG's racing in the BTCC. Lufaso is testing it now and so far he loves it. Its super low in the front, has a splitter in front thats stilll there after trimming it!! IN other words, its not like most bodies designed for "fun". this one was designed by serious racers for serious racers. I'll post a pic or two of it!!!

    Of course I didnt get a chance to cut out the wheel wells yet as I let a buddy borrow my OLFA cutter!!!


  • Parma X20 on my XXXS
    Here it is on my XXXS.


  • Last shot
    Heres a shot from the side. Notice splitter, windshield rake, flat area before rear wing and other little detials designed to make downforce front and rear!!!! This body was tested a ton last year!!! It looks high only because I put the car on rubber tires for photo. It was set-up for 2.25" foams!!!


  • XXXS Question
    I know this has been hotly debated over and over, but what is the general consensus on high vs. low roll center for carpet on foam tires??
  • OK,

    I am back with a new XXX-S and i had a questions:

    Anyway I put the .28 shock shafts with new threaded bodies in and I obviously can't set the ride hight to less than 8. What settings are you guys running that I can adjust to get my ride height down?

    Thanks
