Did you gear it with the same in pinion or ratio. If you just move the motor over with the same pinion you used on the TC3 you're over geared for the XXX-S, wrong FDR. Gear it 2 tooth down from TC3 and you'll be fine. If you're running the same FDR then it could be a weight issue between the two chassis.
I ran it with the same gear ratio.............
and it was slow... slow...... slow compared to my TC3..........

My TC3 is bone stock........ it is a racer version......
the cheap one with none of the cool hop up parts...

My XXX-s is all so bone stock.......

haha... Yeah, I almost took a couple pictures of it as a joke, but i had to save space on the digicam for other images. It is just there to show off the belt system.

You could use OFNA's clear wheels with that. Then maybe just white silicone tires, a clear body. You could be the ghost car! HEHE. Just joking.

Hey fellows, I ran my losi today and it seems to be really really noisy. I have this annoying clicking noise coming out of it also. I am missing 2 balls in the differential could this be the problem? The clicking noise only occurs when throttle is first given. It seems like the belt is skipping but I don't know what could be causing this. It's really loud and skips. What kind of information do i need to know to troubleshoot this problem. Thanks for any help.

Has anyone had problems with the aluminum CVD's tearing the little pin out of the dogbone? This has happened to 2 different people at my track (me being one of them). I don't think I hit anything at least I don't remember hitting a board or car and if I did it was so monir as to not be memorable.

now the "funny" part of the story...I could tell this happaned early on in my qualifier as the car started to handle like crap and one wheel was "break dancing" when I turned right ...hehe I still ran 2nd in that qualifier, with a 3 wheel drive car!!

Hey guys

I have a handling problem with my car that maybe one of you can help me out with. The car is handling great except for high speed entry into corners. The car tends to wash out at the apex of the corner and slides through the corner. Any suggestions on what would fix this?

Thanks

Bob

I would suggest trying different tires on the car before you get to caught up in the "perfect set-up" game. Ask the people that you race with and see what they have had good luck with and then go from there.

What surface are you running on?

Harshguy, I had this problem even with the steel ones what I found was that tc3 caster blocks (if that is what your using) need to have a stop made, the inside wheel of the direction of the turn will flop about 3/8 " and open the cv to a critical angel. I used a 4/40 set screw in the spindle where it comes to rest against the caster block, the great thing is u can ajust it. Hope this helps.

Oh and the car still runs 3 wheel quite well don't u think? The car is just awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you do run the AE castor blocks, be aware that they are narrower and will create more throw in the steering. That extra throw may create problems for you in the cvds.

I tightened the belt but that did not help. The clicking is still there. Is there any other possible reason this would happen?

How many of you guys use the 41 tooth diff in the rear?
