What is the difference between a XXX-S and a graphite Plus. Besides the material the parts are made of, and the yellow belt, are they the same car?
No, there are other differences. The rear hub carriers, arms, and shock tower are all different as well. The shocks are slightly shorter and they include the Titanium Nitride shock shafts. Other then that, it has the Ti Turnbuckles too. I think everything else is the same though, but I'm not 100% sure.

The rear are the same .36 shock shafts, the fronts are the shorter .28 shock shafts on the Graphite Plus.

The original X-S came with .36 front and rear.

Hi guys ... decided to stop racing

I have a graphite LOSI XXX-S in very good condition, complete with Boca ceramic bearings throughout and all Matt Francis Hop Ups. Loads of spare parts too.

Give me a reasonable offer for the lot and it will be yours

Send me a private message or email me on mark@destinationmalta.com even if your offer is ridiculous. You never know ... I will sell it to the highest bidder

Now they make only the G+ and the RTR, right? I've got a new RTR and the front shocks are the .28s, the rears .36.

No, I don't have any aluminum parts, no heatsinks, nothing !!
I even hardwire everything. No big wires, keeping them as short as possible.
I can't understand why my car is so heavy.

Somebody does??

How heavy is your body? Paint does add weight to the car.

Car without body is very near 1500 (ranging 1490-1500).
