WOOHOOO!!! I placed 2nd today! It was great race too, lots of crashes! The xxx-s is reaaally a nice car! I didnt think it was this good. The only prob is I overgeared my p2k2 pro and it was 230 degress F . I really need to gear it down!!!

We had a 2 day meeting this past weekend, the number of cars entered surpassed the Nationals held 2 months ago.

After an afternoons practice I was semi OK with the car. Moving the cells forward turned it from an acceptable drive, to one that really had me happy.
Other than a front anti roll bar and 70wt front, 50 wt rear oil, the car was box stock. 10 Double motor geared 22/90 with 3000HV's(PEAK), Ellegi foam tyres(35 f/30 r)

Qualified second in Touring Mod and repeated that in the first final. After a bad start that saw me dead last after the 4th corner, I managed to get back to runner up spot at the 4 minute buzzer.

Unfortunately the second final was a bit of a shocker while the third just capped it off when a front wheelnut parted company at the 3 minute mark after a major effort to catch the front 3 cars who'd got away at the start.
The car that won Mod was the Losi that had TQ'd the event, he won pretty convincingly too.(Well done Craig)

Other than the errant wheelnut, the car was faultless all weekend(just me making mistakes)no breakages or anything unpleasant.

Got to make lots of "Ditch that two belt Dinosaur and get something decent" lines too

Default ROAR Nats setup

I just got back from the ROAR Nats up here in Minneapolis, MN. It was at my home track, www.twincityhobby.com results can be found at http://www.twincityhobby.com/results.htm I finished 2nd in the Stock Sedan B main. Now that I think about it, I might have been the best finishing Losi in Stock (not sure what cars the A main guys drove, lots of TC3's though) So, if anyone's looking for a really good xxxs setup for a super high bite, technical carpet track, here you go:

FRONT:
Tires=TRC black mesh rim Plaid 2.22"dia.
Toe=0
Ride Height=4mm
Droop**=0
Pivot Support=2F
Pully=42F/42R, front diff set fairly tight
Camber=-2
Carrier=2
Arm Spacing=FWD
Ackerman=Back
Shock position=4
Camberlink=2
Roll Center=Mid (Losi xxxs graphite plus LRC block)
Sway Bar=.050
Shock Oil=60wt Losi
Piston=#60
Spring=30lb Losi White

REAR:
Tires: TRC black mesh rim Purple 2.22" dia.
Toe=1 (1* blocks on backwards)
Ride Height=4mm
Droop**=5
Pivot Support=0R
Camber=-2
Arm Spacing=MDL
Shock Position=4/Outside
Camberlink=2A
Roll Center=Low (Losi xxxs graphite plus LRC block)
Sway Bar=NONE
Shock Oil=60wt Losi
Piston=#56
Spring=25lb Losi Black

Battery Placement=Forward
Transponder=Personal Transponder on servo
Body=Losi Alfa, wing deck cut to 38mm.
Traction Compound=Corally "Jack the Gripper" full rear, 3/4 front (go right up to the orange ring)

**Droop measured with Losi droop gauge, at the set screw boss on the hubs.

The car really transitions great through chicanes, turns in very smoothly yet quickly. It carried alot of corner speed, but was surprisingly easy to drive.

You were the highest Losi. The A Main was 9 TC3s and a Schumacher Mission. Scotty won the B and he drove a TC3.

I've got a XXX-S G+ and I don't understand how the rear toe works. I have the stock hubs and arms in now which I think is 2 deg. I want to get 1.5 deg. Do I just get the .5 deg rear hubs or does this give me 2.5 deg of toe-in? Or do I run the .5 deg hubs, but with the left one on the right and the right one on the left?

Yeah, with the .5 hubs you can have 1.5 or 2.5 degrees. Just switch the left and right. With 1 degree you can have 1 degree or 3 degrees and 0 is just 2 degrees.

LouisB -

On my asphalt setup I am running the shocks in the 3 hole in the front and the 2 hole in the rear in the outside hole on the arm... I like the linear feel of the car when the shocks are stood up..

As for your battery question/comment - the 3300 GP's are working great - and Jeff (ProMatch) just got in the newest batch - with 1.16+ voltage and 14-16 IR... and they seem to be quite stout on the track!! In stock racing the Sanyo GP's seem to be quite good as well, but I have found that the first run of the day is the best... very punchy!

Regards,
Wilde

Well this last weekend I went carpet racing with my G+ for the first time. I used a slightly modified Hodge cleveland set-up, and it was very unfruitful....... Due to a large---LARGE mistake on my part!!!! I must have been stuck in TC3 mode after helping my buddy get my FT car hooked up better...... I ran the batts full rear, causing a huge off throttle oversteer situation....LOL Funny thing is all the changes I made to the car it should have pushed like a dog!!!! But with all that weight rearward when I left off it all transferred to the front!!!! Note to self shoo-goo TC3 foam spacer in the rear-most cell slot!!!!LOL

Also I have come up with a very small mod that can help save alot of time...... in the front and rear bumpers mark the exact center between the screws that are closest to the very end of the car... next take a very small drill bit and make a shallow hole (about 1/8") I used a #54 drillbit, now when I need to check tweak I only have to find that hole with my xacto blade!!! Quick and easy..Just the way I like it...>LOL
