Today I used a locking spool for the first time. A very interesting experiance. It pushed off power but when I hit the throttle that thing had killer steering and I would not have to leave off the hug the corner after that. I just need to work on gettting more steering off power and learn the drive it a little harder so I can use as much of the on power steering as I can. The IRS spool worked flawlessly along with then Big Dawg Bones with the pin cushions in. A little more practice and setup work and the spool will be a great addition to my car.

The ballcups are Losi, but were not publicly availible last I knew. I do know that there was quite a bit of interest in them a while ago..

As said before, RPM does have white ball-cups availible though..

I just ran my new Losi for the first time. Not bad for the first time running anything but a TC3. My race results look like hell, (4th in the C-main 19 turn class ) But I learned alot. I have to say, I'm amzed at the cornering capabilities of this car, even with a standard diff. I was loose going in and a slight push coming out. I was running the stock setup other than a few shock position adjustments and 50 wt oil. I'm thinking the spool and a front swaybar will help. (New tires woulden't hurt either Any other suggestions?

Todd Hodge's screws are Lunsford Ti screws. They dont make them anymore I dont think, but I have heard that they plan on releasing them again in the near future. As for his ball cups, those are Losi cups just not dyed. They were used for prototyping the ball cups. They dont plan on releasing them.

Ernie: A couple of things we need to know before we can help:

1. Is it an oval or is it a road course? If it's a road course is it tight and slower or is it more open and faster?

2. What is the temp of the the air and track?

3. Are you running during the day or night?

4. What type of batteries and motor are you running, and describe what your driving style is like.

Let us know, thanks.

Default Rear Toe

I have notice since day one that *visually* it looks like the Left Rear has more toe in than the Right Rear on my XXX-S (old model). I figured it was just an illusion because the chassis wasn't a perfect square. I measured the rear toe, then checked the parallility (seeing if both sides have equal amount of toe) and the LR had twice(!) as much as the RR. My method of measuring probably wasn't the R/C industry standard, but I feel pretty confident in it. WTF is up with this? Or am I sniffing to many paint fumes?

Phoenix,

The toe should be the same on both sides... sometimes the arm mounts and the roll center mounts are a little tricky to work with. take it apart and put it back together again. Just check and make sure that everything on both sides is the same.

some cars have this problem and some don't. You can try the suggested method that Ortiz said but if that doesn't help you have to run a different rear hub on the right side. It sounds messed up but that's the way it is.
