xxxkat....the only mid roll center that comes in the G+ is the front one Losi only offers a low and hig roll center in the rear. What Brain said is what you have to do to get a mid roll center in the rear.

I had that mentioned to me once before but I never tried it. I don't like the way the car feels with the 2R block. 1R would be a smoother change for me. I might have to test that out once the track is at a high traction level. Thanks for the info. Where is your tarck located? I'm from Chicago and plan on coming out there (maybe) this summer to visit family and should I want to race I need to know where to go. I have family around the area around the Ever Green plaza and in Olympia fields.

Losi part #A-1229 comes with 2-MID-Front roll center blocks,and 2-LOW-roll center blocks.At this time Losi doesnt offer a MID-rear block.You have to make them.Just cut .060 off a high roll center block.

Yea, its in the MAY issue of R/C CAR magazine. It has a Tamiya Audi DTM on the front page. The artice replaces the first one that Todd wrote. It is some of the best information out there for the XXX-S!!

It's a good article on the xxxs,It goes in to detail on why and how you should make adjustments on your car to make it handle the way you want your car to work.
