Trips, why did you sell the XXX-S?

Did you not like it? Did you even have enough time to really get it sorted out? I am still learning stuff about my Street Weapon IWC.

I am thinking that my next TC will be a XXX-S or RCLab Seven Even

Cmotif,

You can't go wrong with the XXX-S, especially if you already have a Street Weapon -- there are even a few interchangable parts on the old SW and the new sedan, namely diff outdrives, shocks, and the motor mount (I believe).

We have a few at our club here and they have been nothing short of dominant. I have yet to personally determine which of my 3 cars (Yoke Worlds, Yoke Special, XXX-S) is the best for me, but that's probably because I am very well acquainted with the Yokes.

I really liked the XXX-S a lot, the only reason I sold it was because I wanted another Corally, and the budget is pretty tight at the moment.

Any problems with belt slippage due to the single belt drivetrain? Is this layout similar to Kyosho's KX-1?

I have had no problems with the belt slipping only the clicking when braking hard but that is normal. The car is great and with the last couple of weekends racing has proven itself to be a good performer. 1 2 3 finishes in last outing.....rest of the feild was TC 3'S and I own FT TC3 and the xxx-s drives soo much easier. I would suggest this car to anyone..

Mr. Losi, when I first got the car I drove it and thought that my TC3 had a more punchy feel and until I put the losi down and drove the TC3 I was all over the track. The losi drives great and the best comparison I can give is that when you drive a B3 and then a XXX, you have much more confidence and the car is more forgiving. This also true with the XXX-S. I ran on a concrete track with yok firm compund tires in front and mediums in the rear with firm inserts and it was very good with the stock set-up. Just have to get the tires scuffed in. For a "out of the box " car I can't wait to get it on the carpet. I had soo much time in my TC3. Great Job LOSI!

Yes,

I am pretty happy with mine as well. A little front shock modification was all that is in order. Now I just need to do some testing this weekend with all these option parts !!

What type of Batteries and Stock Motors are you guys using in your XXX-S. The Track that I am going to race at has a lot of really good drivers all racing mod so this year I think I am going to race Stock. I use to race 2WD Off Road Mod all the time but since I am going to be racing at The Track I don't think I want to mess with the sponsered drivers in mod and get them mad at me.
I am looking at Sayno 2400 with a MVP, but will the Sayno 3000 be better if I want to race Mod maybe towards the end of the season? Then I guess I can buy 1 or 2 packs of SMH to help me in Mod so I guess what Battery I should really buy for Stock Racing with the possibility of going mod and being competitive.

Thanks

Mike Webb

Cool

Hey Mike- I use 2400's and a P2K for stock racing. My car flies, can keep up with anyone. You can use 2400's in mod, unless you have a wide open track or heavy throttle finger. Alot of guys here use them in mod. Basically they are slightly higher than SMH in voltage, with less run-time and a lower price.

Mike,

If you can make the investment, try the SMH. The batteries are quite versatile in mod and stock. The extra capacity will help you if you decide gear up or drive the car a little harder (punched).

The very nature of the car makes you want to gear-up. Look in the pits at the Nats, the SMHs were everywhere for stock and mod.

Speedo - when did you get a XXX-S????
