pro3racer.. Your setup looked to be a little soft. Heres what I would do.. Run your 50wt oil all around, 55 (orange) in front, 56 (red) in the rear. Orange front springs, White rears. For tires, Jaco Purple/orange in front and Purple in the back. If you need a full out setup let me know, or, just check out Todd's snowbirds setup from last year. As for the belt, mine moves around a bit too, nothing to worry about.

If you have more questions post them and i'll get back to you next Monday as i'm leaving for the Novak race right now.

Default Belt Wandering

Actually, you want your belt to be "wandering" from side to side slightly... this denotes that the belt is not being pulled into the guides of a pulley somewhere ... which means your drive train is more free than if it's "stuck" against one side or the other....

Smile JR XS-3 Radio Settings for Losi XXX-S

All,

I am interested in communicating with someone about our radio settings for a JR XS-3 transmitter controlling an XXX-S Graphite Plus. Currently running on carpet in Sportmans Stock using an RX300 receiver, Airtronics 94357Z servo, Monster Pro motor, and LRP ESC. Any interest? Thanks.

I run mine straight up. A little trim here and there, and I keep my throttle deadband near zero, but other than that, I don't use any of the expo or other toys.

But that's just me.

Thanks Dave.

I was just playing with mine this evening and found that everything was fairly straightup too; except that both deadbands on the XS-3 were set to 50%. They are now at 0% because it is too on/off in forward and minimal for brakes. Thanks for your thoughts.

what's the lowest ride height you can attain with the 1.15" springs in front?

I have the greens now and i don't have a problem with lowering the ride height.

RCGary-Try raising the roll center blocks .020" and then run the 4F block in the high roll center holes. That should hook up the rear end more. Also use 55 pistons in the front and 54 in the rear. That is very important on carpet with rubber tires. The bigger hole piston gives you more grip.
This was from Todd a few day ago if you scroll back. It should read the 4R block, not the 4F, and these are rear changes if you guys care to try it. I got rid of most of the push when I did this, I just need to smooth out my driving now. Hard to get a feel for lap times with mod, 19T, and Stock foam out there with you.

No Prob. - Although I was only paraphrasing your favorite driver, I can't take any credit on this one.
