I may just pull the axle's off my original x-s, which aparently are a mm or two longer than my GP+'s. I replaced one with a spare from my original, and it's the only axle that I the AE hexes fit with Losi locknuts.

It will also help carry a bit more corner speed. You may lose a little grunt off of the line but I don't think that it would be that noticable.

It will help increase traction on that end of the car.

There are a couple on the Losi web site. Check them out, they're both good starting points for setups.

Default trinity motor heatsink

Looking for trinity part number for a motor mount heat sink that was used for the street weapon. This is the one that has a huge blue heat sink attached to the motor mount and can be used w/ the xxxs. Been looking for this mount and cant find the part number.

Trinity heat sink #??? Some motors run better if you don't cover vent holes on can. Actually if you cover vent holes on can, motor will run hotter.

Pro3.....your probably seeing the diff move left to right causing the belt to move with it. The diffs are sometimes not tight left to right in the chassis. Losi does sell a shim kit with big shims to take that side to side play out but that side to side play its not going to effect anything...unless its really major slop.
