T.Hodge- thank you for the info I am going to try your setup tommorrow in stockton. I ran on wed. I had the kinwald setup from cleveland last year worked well pushed a little the car was still pretty good. Stockton has practice on sat before the races doors open at 7:30am racing starts at 10am I believe hope to see you there sometime this season!

Thanks for the comments, Doug! I'm very glad to hear you are happy with the towers!

ijnek, yes, KT Hobbies ordered a few sets and he should have them early next week.

Also, we're now including small, lightweight hex nuts with the towers. Those .250" steel hex nuts are just too heavy.

Thanks!
Ben, Team PRP

I tried the Matt Francis Nats set-up today, with a few minor changes. I had a shorter camber link in the rear to try and get some more rear side bite but otherwise it was the same.
I started with green front springs and blue rears, then green fronts and purple rears and finally blue fronts and purple rears (what OBY said I should start with)
It was handling better than it has done before and I was leading the final when, for a 2nd time, my spur gear got eaten and I had to stop I don't know why this happened, it was a RW racing supalite spur on the Fastrax adaptor and had survived the heats fine. In the final it started to click and then stripped completely by 2 1/2 minutes. I'll try the gear that came wiht the adaptor again (even though it makes my Losi noisier than a TC3!!!) and see if it survives.
Thats the second DNF in a row but my car was handling much better
I think I'll try the same setup but over-driven at the next race.

T.Hodge- ran Andrew Grays Octoberfest with one change. Used black springs in rear. Purple congos on all four corners was alittle to aggressive. I used jaco orange/purple front and purple rear. The car was alot better sat could have used alittle more on power steering but the car was really good overall.

bigdog-Thanks for the info. I want to try and make it up there for some racing but driving 6 hours for a club race is harsh. Do they ever open the track on Sunday for practice??? The new hubs and arms should be available soon....that will help with the onpower steering problem you are having.

TeamPRP-Someone at work stole my towers...G....I....L....JR. You gave me two pairs and I gave the 2nd set to BK at Ocotberfast...looks like I am going to have to steal them back off him.

OBY-The forward holes will make the car feel more responsive and and give it a little more steering on corner entry. Personally I think it makes my car a little to twitchy.

Default Springs for XXX-S?

I've had a hard time locating various stiffnes springs that fit my xxx-s. Any suggestions? I saw a guy on e-bay claiming that the TC-3 springs fit but they don't ( I have a TC3 and tried it - no luck). Do the Trinity Congo springs work without any other modification? Does anyone have part #'s or spring rates for diiferent colors?

Thanks
