That would work, be kinda pushy, but would work. What i meant was to get shock oils between 50 and 70 (i.e. 50, 60, 70). Check your email .

KevinK: great tip. might actually try that. when i find a long enough screw. but so far no more stripped spur since i changed the top shat. must have been miss aligned. thanks!

glide1: dynamite has some and so does trinity under the Matt Francis line (dunno the part numbers though). however, if your objective is to make the losi wider, i think you'll have to go with the AE hex's - not sure if the two mentioned above will do the trick. as mentioned by STLNST, yoke make some in clamp style and they should make you come close if not right at 190mm. hope this helps.

You really only need to flip and move the bellcranks foward if you lengthen the wheelbase by moving the front arms foward.When you move the arms foward this changes the ackerman,by flipping + moving the bellcranks foward helps maintain the same ackerman you had before in the stock position with the arms spaced in the middle.

BrianJ -

How are the setups on the Losi site for normal running at Trackside?? I am going to move up there in a couple of weeks... and I doubt that my setup from SRS is a good place to start!


Thanks in advance -

Wilde

Tuffer.....Im not Brian but any of the Foam tire setups should work on his carpet track or be a good place to start. If there is a setup from the Novak race this year that would be the place to start if you are going to be racing rubber tires on carpet. Just to let you know there is not too much racing at Trackside during the summer most people race outside. If you need more info check out the Wisconsin and Illinois fourms thats where most of the goings on in the area are talked about. And if your moving to Wisconsin....Im sorry.....J/k. Trackside is a hot place to race at in the fall and winter with 50 or more guys on any given sunday. There are some other tracks that are in Northern IL. that are not more then at most 2 hours from Trackside to check out as well.

What does a oneway do? How does it affect your car? When should I switch to a oneway from a diff(like when I start winning)?

Kevin K - Thanks for the info!! What are the hot tracks to race at in the summer?? Most of my experience comes from asphalt racing and off-road (buggy and truck) at SRS in Scottsdale AZ... funny thing is that out here, the attendance numbers are a little bit like Trackside... 120-130 on a Sat in the cooler months and 70-80 in the summer (those of us who are hard-core... or nuts since the temp is well over 100...) - Any information that you can provide for some summer racing would be great! I will most likely set up shop on the north side of Milwaukee...

As for the foam setups - I thought that Trackside only allowed rubber for most of the year...


Brian J - Thanks!!! The last couple of times I have visited over the holidays I was hurting since I never had much time to wrench on the car while visiting the family... not to mention the fact that it's a little colder there and I didn't want to spend any more time in the garage than needed. As for the springs - Do you know which poundage the Trinity congos are?? I haven't been able to get my hands on them, but I have the full compliment of Losi springs. And regarding the LRC up front - are you talking about the piece that comes with the G+, or the true Losi LRC.


Thanks again!! See you guys soon - should be there some time mid July or early August

A oneway makes the front tires freespin "off-power" FASTER than a diff or even a spool with no diff action or spool action what-so-ever. This creates HUGE amounts of "off-power" steering and more amounts of "on-power" steering than a diff as it will act as a spool "on-power".
