On my car when running 4* anti-squat in the rear or maybe even 2* I had to unscrew the shock bottom some and/or take an old clamp style spring collar to act as a spaced on the rear body from running out of threads. That was on carpet with tires smaller than 60mm, so it might not be much of a problem with the bigger rubber tires.

Is there anything wrong with running the stock XXX-S wheel nuts? If I should change them, which ones should I get? Thanks

Nothing really wrong with using the stock nuts, but the low profile nuts are lighter and thread on all the way. They are better especially if you are using foam tires with wider hex-hubs.

None. Kind of a waste when you buy different degree c hub and ended up al many spindles.

Yea 2nd home of the Losi for sure! ...those SD's didn't look very consistent at all, I know the "SD Sorority" was saying that it's new and it needs to have the kinks worked out, but I remember when the Losi first came out and we picked it up at SWR, it had problems with castor blocks and arms breaking (don't they all when they're new ) , but it's been consistent as all getgo since the beginning.

BTW - you drove your a** off!!!! Killer you made the A, you didn't have to race the "lower mains" with us mere mortals

Harsh- My first time out with the Losi I won the mod class at Ripon with Matt Howard in attendance. Every car has breakage problems when they first come out BUT....the Losi has always been consistent. I can't say the same for the Yok. Not bashing just giving my opinion.
