Default Losi high performance questions !

Hi everyone ...

I will really appreciate if some can guide me regarding the following points :


1. What set up of pinion and spur gear is best for stock racing on a quite big asphalt circuit ?

2. Can I get lightweight pinions from somewhere ?

3. What is the total weight for the LOSI in complete graphite ?

Thanks and regards,
Senna

Senna, a final gear ratio of 6.18 is good for P2K's. Kimbrough makes some composite pinions, that's about the lightest your gonna find. Second to that are Robinson Racing aluminums pinions. After that are TIR titanium pinions which can be found at the Schumacher website. My XXXS is all graphite with aluminum screws, titanium hinge/kingpins/turnbuckles and it weighs around 53oz. w/transponder.

I beleive the optional steering post location will be for a more or a less ackerman(measurement of the inside wheel to the outer wheel when steering). When both wheels are perfectly perpendicular to each other they are said to have perfect ackerman. Inside wheel tighter than outside, less ackerman. Outside wheel tighter than inside wheel, more ackerman. I beleive this is right, correct me if I'm wrong. One thing is for sure, the optional steering post location will alter the ackerman of the car considering the length of the steering bracket will stay the same.

Hi proudwinner,

Thanks for the information.

Do the Kimbrough and the Robinson Racing have a website? I live in Malta (Europe) and would like to buy through internet. Is it possible?

"A final gear ratio of 6.18 is good for P2K's." What is P2K please?

The weight you gave me includes the body or not?

Thanks again for all your help. (I just ordered the LOSI XXX-S, graphite kit and all Matt Francis hop ups ... I cannot wait)

Regards,
Senna

The additional steering post positions on the new chassis were intended to be used for the XXX-4 that way they wouldn't have to mold a completely different chassis. The sedan chassis and the buggy chassis are the same.

Senna, the P2k is the stock motor that most stock drivers now-a-days use. It is made by Trinity, but now they have a P2K2.

Got a Qucik Question for everyone. A friend of mine bought Factory Team Associated Titanium Turnbuckles that are made for the N-TC3, but he plans on putting them on his XXX-S. What is the whole difference between them? And can he use them or was it a big waste of money?

He should be able to use them no problem. Just match up the sizes.

Default LOSI XXX-S Gearing

In Malta we have a great asphalt track, and my competitors mainly driver Yokomo MR4 TC Pros or Associated TC3s, all of them with a final gearing ratio of approximately 4.60!

I used to drive a Factory Team TC3 myself, with 34 pinion and 63 spur gear and the final gearing was approx. 4.63 ... I used to win almost all the races!

Is it possible for the LOSI to reach such final gearing without over gearing?

Senna, I believe you can since you were doing it with other cars and other guys at your track are doing it also. Gearing is pretty compatible amongst vehicles and specific tracks. From the way that you guys are gearing, it sounds like you guys have a HUGE track, I'd get a GM3 for a big track like that.

What is a GM3 ?
