Thanks Shane I knew if I waited long enough would release something like this

-High and low roll center blocks.
I heard alot of talk about these roll center blocks on the Losi, does this mean I don't have to buy the Trinity or Speedtech parts if I get the kit?

Thanks
Josh

No, It will come with both options. No dremel needed from what i was told.

You really don't need AL ones anyways. I just took 0.150" off the stock blocks.

If I had to pick up any two "hop-ups" for the new Graphite Plus kit they would be a one-way and a titanium screw kit. Plus different sets of toe/caster blocks for tuning. Other than that, the car should be good to go as is.

Yes, they are plastic hexes.

I agree in the Ti Screws, they are pretty cool..

Aluminum belt cover? hehe..

I'm betting the aluminum hexes from my Yokomo would fit

Titaium screws for me are more in the "cool" department rather than making the car any faster...All the more reason to buy them Silver screws just look nice

Eh... lighter... But you know since they are silver, they make the car a tenth faster.

Had they been blue, it would be 2 tenths...

I think using less paint on the body would make more of a difference jk, I know, but who's going to notice...

Yeah, why do you think the current trend is white semi-transparent bodies?

i just bought a whole graphite kit for my car...

i fancy the front castor blocks, cos my aluminium fastrax ones are now very very bent...

also my belt is a bit worse for wear, new one should be nice.

I wouldn't go with titanium screws for any sort of performance advantage; I like being able to work on the car in a hurry between heats without having to be careful not to strip stuff. That's one reason I like having my Yokomo over my Losi at big races, as I had a full titanium set on there and I could just jam the sucker back together if I was in a hurry.

Now that there are a few companies making ti kits for the Losi, I'm a happy camper.

Yeah, titanium is nice for that reason. Although on the Yokomo even though the screws are steel, they have 2mm heads, which is much larger than the small Losi size, and are therefore more durable anyway.

I think the new kit and some front and rear anti roll bars should do it for me...How many pages for me to check out here for setups....

What size wrenches will I need to buy, I already have a 0.063 for my pinions, thats one isn't it?

Default Part numbers

Hello Todd Hodge or anybody,

I am thinking that the part numbers for some of the New Losi Graphite XXXS parts will remain the same (i.e. bumpers, foam bumper, front caster blocks), but the rear arms and huibs will all be different, correct? Anybody know the part numbers? I need to order them asap!!

Thanks,
Ray
