The G+ car comes with both roll centers. Should only really need springs and oil for shocks. Might want different caster blocks and rear hubs for tuning later on. One-way is not a must as it is usually harder to drive for someone just starting out, but it is a tuning option once your skills progess. Don't recomend it for foam carpet racing though. Build the car stock and try it first. I would than ask any local racers what they are running and maybe try changing a few things. Just remeber to change one thing at a time. What works for them might not work for you as most people have different driving styles. All I can say is ask questions and learn the car. Good luck and hopefully we will have another XXXS owner.

Thanks.
You should get it. You won't regret your decision. Your skills will evolve with the car. The car is race ready and it's up to you to tune it to your skills. Not much hop-ups needed except the necessities: tires for the particular track and making new friends particularly Losi XXX-S owners.

I noticed your location is in the NW. Where will you be racing at? At the Rain? I race there at a regular basis.

if you go to Losi's web site, you can download the manual for the XXX-S GP. This explains the pivot blocks in a way that it really makes sense. You use them to adjust the roll center and anti-squat.

hi,

When using the rear high roll center, we should put the rear pivot block at the top in the rear bulkhead, right. The thing is, the droop screw can't touch the A-arms now, so how can i adjust it?

There are different length of droop screws when running high or low roll centers.

It has been raining. I'm actually in Idaho. Sometimes it's hard to find places to race here. I've been thinking of starting a track of my own. I know of some good places. I'm just not sure of the interest around here. Currently I have a old highly modified YZ-10 and JRX Pro SE. I've been out of it for about ten years. The XXX-S G+ is high on my list because if being able to tune it without being so confused as to where to start. I used to race with the local club but they weren't very flexible or willing to promote very well. Anyway, thanks for the info. *S* It helps me make my decision.

Thanks
