Default An Opinion

I've been racing the tc3 for about 2 years now.This car is fast on bottom and top end. At our local track(Mid-South Racing Association)in Memphis Tennessee there are about 15 tc3's that show up to race every other Sunday-and the car shows to be pretty good on both handling and speed. Everyone now thinks Team Associated has invented the perfect touring car. Well about a month ago I registered to race pro stock(p2k,mvp) with a brand new xxx-s(losi's parking lot setup) . After a few changes I got the car dialed to the track. To compare this car to the tc3 this is what I found: acceleration was a little below the tc3 but good, top end speed was also a little below the tc3 but good enough(p2k), now for the handling, well the handling of this car put me in a state of confusion, meaning I was confused on how the car handled so much better than my factory team tc3.I've notice alot of racers state that their xxx-s are much slower than their tc3's, I noticed it too but what I also noticed is that the xxx-s is way easier on the comms due to its unique belt drive system. I ran a p2k with a final drive ratio of 6.19 and the p2k had trinity's competition brushes installed(#4444/1-3run) and after the races I disassembled the motor and my jaw fell to floor, the comm looked liked the motor had used hard copper brushes in it for about 2 minutes. My tc3 never showed me that. I beleive the xxx-s is just a little slower than the tc-3 and once this car is fully decked out in graphite and aluminum screws the car will be par with the tc3. Not only was the xxx-s easier on comms than the tc3 the car had no problem steering equally left and right. I believe the xxx-s is an awesome car and I hope this helps.

My belt is blue.

I am beginning to think that is a drawn out story. So many inconsistencies with what the XXXs actually is or how it performs. Are you sure someone didnt sell you an old street weapon?

Hmm... The belt should be blue. Some of the early prototype's had black belts though.

Did you ask losi about it when you called them?

Anyone know where you can get Titanium Screws for a XXX-S? maybe a place that sells the individually. Also does anyone know if the Ti screws are lighter then Aluminum screws? I know they are stronger but I hope they are lighter also.

Thanks

Mike,

you can check with Lundsford to see what they have left. last time i ordered, they mentioned that they were going to get out of the ti screw line.

integy sells only metric. if you can find them, they are the way to go.

Worse case scenario you can always purchase one of the existing Lundsford Ti-screw sets of some of the other cars and piece together what you need for the XXXs. That may get expensive however. At that point you will just have to call some of the larger hobbyshops to see if they have backstock.

I'm ordering Threaded shocks, the 2* & 4* castor blocks.. Anything else you guys would add to the list?

I'm not too worried about graphite yet, but i may get the chassis later on.

we are able to run turns as low as 7 doubles with an 88. not sure where you got the information from but that is incorrect regarding running low wind motors.

the manual does provide gearing for an 8turn. 16/88

Hear me out bra.
If your mounting the low turn motors(below 13 turn) STRAIGHT onto the mounting plate(like the manual states) ang go to twist the motor so that the teeth will mesh right with the spur, the motor will stop right before the pinion meets the spur because the motor starts to bind against the chassis. However you can bypass this problem, use the two washers that came with the motor screws and use them between the motor plate and motor.You must be using the trinity street weapon heat sink which will also solve this problem.

Default Kit Settings

Hey guys, I just got an XXX-S and I was wondering how good/bad the kit set-up is. Is it setup for stock or mod? For those who've tried it, how's the handling?
