Kraig-do you have a bulk bag of shock shafts and spring perches for the XXXS?? hahaha!!! I'd like to buy a bag of fifty??!??!!

I love my Losi G+ now-but it does me no good as I keep breaking shock shafts. And I dont pinball off the walls by any stretch. I drive pretty clean-but When I do clip an apex too tight or get bumped intraffic into a board-darn shock shaft breaks every time. I probably have less than 5 packs through my Losi because it keep shelving it-calling Kraig for more parts...... hmmmmm WAit-this is Kraigs fault

Just kidding Kraig.....

No, no, it's probably Kraig's fault.

You guys are scaring me about running my G+ car at Nationals now.

I haven't been able to race my G+ yet, but a few things bother me about your posts about the shock shafts......

How the hell are you all breaking them??

I flex the bumper and I see no way the upper mount could hit the shock without being a huge crash, I mean it has to go back over 1"

If you really think that it is the upper brace doing the deed why not just remove it??

Has anyone went back to teh standard .28 shafts to see if they have the same problem??

There was a bad batch of shock shafts that were shipped. They were over hardened if memory servers me correctly. Call Losi and see if they will replace them.

BrianJ and Impactplayer.

If your gonna hit something, hit it right, right?? Why crash half a....

I modified the upper bumper brace thinking that would do it as I dont like the fact that the original upper bumper brace is held in place by the same screws as the sway bar mount. No win situation!!! Dont be fooled by the amount of clearance either!!! 50oz car x 25 mph + flexible bumper material = big crash damage!!! Look at the design of the bumper. when you hit head on-the bumper goes up and back!!! On a TC3 for example-the bumper goes down......

Our latest track layout is very fast and your turning at full speed through a sweeper and theres a hairpin at the end of a super fast section as well-so when you hit on this layout- you hit pretty hard. Its also a pretty grippy Ozite foam track so you know your humping right along-even in stock class.

There had to be a bad batch of shafts or something.... I don't think I've seen anybody locally break a Losi shaft. I even clipped the wall at the end of our 120' straight, car was about 4-5 feet in the air, landed about 20-25 feet away on a pit table!!! And not a single part broke.....

Default G+ chassis

When will the G+ chassis only be available? Not the conversion kit, but just the chassis.

Thanks

Yes I know! My local track just got it, and they already are out of stock! Just one question from a rookie like myself. What's the difference between the G+ chassis and the old Graphite chassis?

Default G+ chassis

But are there two types of A9918? Ive seen this chassis part number before and it is the one that has the two ackerman holes, but the cut outs are not the same as the ones in the G+ kits.

Please advise if the part number is the same for both chassis.

Also, Kraig from KT hobbies..... Do you carry the new G+ chassis? Ive seen that part number also on your website, but am not sure if it's the G+ chassis. Thanks.

Its just a running change to the part so some places might still have old stock. The difference between the two are the G+ one is lighter and more cut out then the other Graphite chassis' thats all.
