Anyone that hasn't broken a shock shaft consider yourself VERY LUCKY. Hard hit or soft hit they break. I have broken four shafts with no damage tp the body or the arms. It's a big pain in the booty when this happens too. I went back to the stock short shock shafts. If I break one of those then I'll look at the new bumper thingy.

Oh i see, thanks. G+ chassis are hard to get. Any news when the G+ Graphite Conversion would come out? I doubt there would be one.

I've taken a couple hard hits. Broke the shock eyelet on both my cars about 2 weeks ago, both the GP+ and graphite conversion. Both shafts held fine..

Same exact spot on the track, almost the same exact parts too. Hit #1 was foam, hit #2 was rubber.

Thanks everyone for replying to my heatsink question. My reason for wanting one is cause I want to run my practice packs closer together. Hoping that piece would keep it a bit cooler so I can run them closer together. I'm working on getting a fan working as well. I just need more practice and I don't really want to wait that long between packs.

TSR6- I don't know how you haven't I have seen a couple of other people have the same problem but for it to happen to me as many times as it has is frustrating. If the worse is behind me then let's party If not.....look for me in the lower mains

Hi,

I am considering to buy the G+. I would be mainly running the car on carpet and would be using rubber tires (Sorex 20Rs work well on the local track). Would the box stock setup run well? I am not really an experienced setup tuner, that's why I would prefer a car that would run well in the box stock settings. Thank you.

STLNLST - maybe I was lucky? Knock on wood... I don't think shock shafts are prone to breaking around here though. I hear it online fairly often, but I don't think I've seen, or heard about it at the track. This reminds me of the original x-s, when people were breaking rear arms & hubs. It was news to me!

Kenneth Tan - The box setup works fine from what I've heard, I haven't used it though. I just went ahead and used Paul's carpet nats setup from the Losi website. I changed springs to silver all around, moved the front arms to the forward position, front swaybar, and ran the "offset" rear end parts.

Looks like the chassis questions have been answered. As of late, all the chassis's we have gotten in have been the new style that come with the G+ kits.

I don't think you will see a G+ Conversion kit. However, as the old pieces are phased out I am willing to bet that you will see the new pieces like the chassis, arms, and rear shock tower be phased in.

Kenneth, I am sure the kit setup would work. If you look at Todd's setup on the Losi site for the Novak race in 2002 that will work also. The G+ comes with the new off-set hubs but you should still be ok. The manual that comes with the car has very good text about changing this does that.

I got a graphite conversion at chrismas and it had the new rear shock tower and some features of the new chassis (raised battery retaining parts)

Yellow belt is more flexible and stronger at the same time...thus...drivetrain more free.

I just purchased the yellow belt. Even though i like the color blue of the old blue belt i think the yellow is better. i can feel the difference and see the difference when racing on the track! NICE BELT! GOOD JOB TEAM LOSI! They should make like a variety of belts for performance and drivers's choice!
