On the new Gp set-up sheet on the castor settings it has anti-dive, kick-up and castor. Sorry for being dense, but I understand all of this except for the anti-dive and how they are achieving it. I don't have the GP, but mine should still be able to be adjusted this way. Also what are they talking about with the different ackerman position? Flipped? Thanks

Ackerman would be with the new chassis only. Normal holes ( stock ) or "flipped" ...the new holes.

anti-dive ( anti-squat ) is the rear pin angle. Just change pin carriers to change this.

Gary - Actually, Anti-dive for the front suspension is if you have the opposite of kickup in the front arms. When you use the new GP low roll center blocks, they are actually the height of mid rollcenter. So for example if you use the new low roll center block up front, and the 0F pivot support, your arms will be tilted down instead of kicked up.

And I'll add another thing about the steering bell cranks. As TSR6 said, there are two sets of holes to put the belcranks in on the new chassis. "Flipped" actually means that they have taken the belcranks, and flipped them upside down and turned them around 180 degrees so that the shorter arms now face forward.

I have one of the newer graphite chassis and it DOES have the different ackerman (for the stearing posts) settings.I had a g-plus and the only difference I could tell between the two chassis was the new G plus has a little more milling done to it,as far as driving went I could not tell a difference.Hey STLNLST you have a good asphalt set up for me?

what setup should i use in an all graphite xxx-s? I havent bought it yet, and i only have an Explorer 2, and a P2k2, and only ONE battery (2500, besides my 2 1500 packs)

I tried racing with my rally, and it didnt turn out so well ,as one battery is hard to run in all the races and qualifiers. Do you reccomend a Pro Match 3000 HV battery?

I will only have about 30 dollars left when i buy the xxx-s, so i probably cant afford any accessories yet besides a body.

Does anyone knows if i can buy the new G+ bumper mount that holds down the foam bumper? I have the original LOsi xxx-s and I'm wondering if the new upgraded bumper part would be able to be installed on the original losi THank

Yes you can buy it, it is part number A-4238. If you can't find it locally we, KT Hobbies have it in stock. I just haven't had a chance to get it up on the website yet. Sorry about that.

I know you can buy it but not sure if it would fit on my regular LOsi xxx-s. Thanks Kraig. HEy kraig, will your aluminum bottom chassis cover do anything for performance on my losi?

I'm not sure on that but all I know is that it should be lighter for performance

The standard and graphite Losis are very strong. The graphite components are stiffer and in some types of crashes may break instead of flexing. I've found that if you crash hard enough to break a graphite part then the same crash would have broken a stiffezell part, so durability wise there's not much in it.

Agreed. I have broken parts with light brushes, and not broken both types of parts with crazy board slamming.

Bottom Belt Cover - It's something that makes your car stand out. It doesnt make the car perform any better, but I have had marshalls comment on it after flipping me over.
