Mr. Losi....my front end was dumping too. It was giving me way too much front bite. I stood the front shock up one hole and it made a big difference.

Losi... Were you running 3 degree kickup? Try going to 0 on the car. I think more spring will help the car also. I have rebuilt my car with purple up front and blue in the rear hoping to have a one-way. If no one-way, I will probably go to even springs front and rear. I have a few other ideas also.

Ran my XXX-S on carpet for the first time this weekend, it wasn't an easy time.

Ran purple springs all round, 80wt, 56F 55R for the first heat, on TRC Magenta rear and purple front tires. The car was too loose to drive. I wanted to run plaid front/purple rear tires, but the shop was out of plaids.

I went to the blue rear springs for the second round, also moved the rear camber rod from to the second hole out on the tower and the outer hole on the carrier. It helped, but hte car was still too unsettled to be consistent.

The track was tiny and bumpy, with six gigantic poles supporting the ceiling. There was ONE spot on the driver's stand where you could see the whole track, and I didn't get to it in time for any heats.

Third round I went to silver springs in back, the car got easier to drive but lap times were off.

Back to blue rear springs for the main, finished second in the A but 2 laps off the leaders pace.


NExt week I'm heading to a bigger smoother carpet track, I'm going to run Trinity Congo yellowF/purpleR springs, 80wt, 56F 55R, and I'll have the TRC plaids for the front and purps for the rear. Made the rear camber rod as long as possible too, inner hole in tower, outer in carrier. Stood both F and R shocks up to second hole from outside on tower. Hope it's better...

Man, do I have alot to learn. I am just running the stock setup. And I think the car is dialed! I am running a P2K, Treadz foams, 37 rear/ 40 front. 4 mm ride height. Slammed Losi Stratus body, 2 droop in front, 3 droop in rear. And this car is stuck to the carpet, like glue! I can't get the car loose at all! This is my first TC ever. All though I don't have the batts like everyone else. I did place 4th in the "B" main. The mains went all the way down to "F", I think!
Oh yeah! That was my first TC race ever!

I am running very used matched 2400's!

Thanks Sir Speedy for the oneway part number! You da man!

I've heard a lot of people talking about the price of the Losi oneways. Are they expensive in other parts of the world? They are only $60 here in Sacramento and if you look arond everybody has their oneways priced at $60. Just my $0.02

He was able to get only the shock tower screws for holding the shocks in the size I wanted to the spec of the kit. Everything else he could not get and didn't know where to get it. Also 4 screws were going to cost $9.50

Mike,

the TC3 aluminium screw set covers most of the XXXS screws, except the 4 longer countersunk screws that hold the kickup/antisquat thingies...

It's blue though
