I think I remember someone saying the new yellow belt is only for stock. But last weekend at OktoberFAST, the Losi guys were running the new D5's and I believe a few of them, if not all, were running the new yellow belt, but I could be wrong as I didn't look too hard at their cars. But I did notice Kinwald had a couple of small fans over his ESC and motor!?

Paul Lemieux's car was absolutely ballisitic! His car didn't have that smooth of a setup, but his motor was a rocket. He was the fastest out here this weekend. His typical laps were 14, 13.9 and 13.8 while others were getting low 14's and 14 flats. He would have won the main, but he gave it to Cyrul after they tangled near the last corner. Paul did get the inside line on the corner and went for the pass, but a little touch sent Cyrul's car rolling I guess Paul wanted to be the nice guy and gave it to Cyrul.

all the losi drivers were all running variations of dave spashetts cleveland setup. after switching, it was a nice setup and i do recomend it. seeign parts of the new graphite plus kit, it will be a force to be reckoned with. and definately kill the tc3. in the MOD FOAM A-Main at oktober, lemieux got knocked early, and caught blackstock, they tangled, and lemieux waited, he went at him again and black stock block so lemieux made his line through and blackstock got moved and lemieux took off, he was down in the low 13's to catch cyrul 3 seconds down w/ 4 laps to go. blackstock had a few words for lemieux after the race, but when he held him off like that, twice, i'd move him to. congrats to cyrul on the win and it was a great showing for all losi's alike!

i was just looking at the car, to see how easy it would be to put the tc3 arms on the front (plan on trying it out as soon as i can get ahold of the parts ).

it looks like you'd need to grind down the 2 inner blocks to get them to slide back to the screw holes.

also with the rear pivot supports they're a bit taller than the stock front ones, do they need to be lowered at all? and is there anyhting else that needs to be done?

Senna: I believe they are on backorder. The graphite chassis' they have and all the parts that they have are being used to produce the new kit. You might still find some at hobby shops that haven't sold out of them, you'll just have to start calling and start looking, they probably won't be in stock for a while though.

Does anyone have any ideas on springs for low grip, tight tracks. My car is twitchy and spins out and then at the next corner it understeers.

LouisB: try some losi purples all round with 60wt oil and the stock setup from there, rear diff a touch looser, and tune the car using the shock towers from then on, same springs all round makes it very balanced. if you want more front grip after this try losi blues on front, and same for rear if you want more rear grip.

Quote:
You could start making the setup softer on each end. Your balance should stay but just have an increase of traction. I have no clue about how the HPI springs compare to the Losi ones so it's hard to say where you are at now compared to what others are running on asphalt with foams.
again....purples on tarmac are a safe bet.
