Hodge, why don't you take the body off that car and then take a picture? Lets see a sneak peak of the chassis that is under that body.

OK, 12 hours and its all built and set up for the most part.
From what ive seen so far....

Likes - Smooooooth, a ton of feel, it tells you exactly what your doing - Fit and finish - A great instruction manual and good quality made this a fun and easy to follow build.

Dislikes - Threading every hole on the graphite chassis, its not really losis fault but I still hated every second of it, dident have the proper wrench for the bigger screws so the L wrench tore my fingers up pretty bad. - Losi Hubs, i have 3 sets of tires, none of them work on this car, why god why? Is there an adapter i can get?

Im in love with it so far, definatly worth the extra money for the G+ kit, exteamly light and stiff

Yes if you look back a page there is a discusion about this. I dont know why losi did that. the original kit came with both sizes and you can buy that part for $5 at your local hobby shop. (part #los-3260) unless you want some better quality ones.

Does anyone have the Spool assembly instructions in pdf, jpg, or anything else? Lost mine and I wanna make sure I do it right...

I think the way to do it was to remove the diff balls(and lube), add the sandpaper rings facind inward, and finally put the diff together like normal... right?

Hey guys, I just ordered a xxx-s G+ kit and should have it here in a day or so. I wanted to run somthing diffrent than most folks at the track. I will be running on carpet and used the set-up sheets on the losi site as a guide for what springs, oil ect to purchase. My question is besides the obvious set-up items are there any "must haves" that I should get?

Thanks for the help
Matt

Default wheel viberation

hi

I was wondering if some of you have a tip so my wheel wont viberate so much. It seems to me that the plastic hex hub isn`t the best. Any suggestion?
