I used a 3/32 drill bit on my shock tower. Just drill it up and between the stock holes.

Jitz, I know what you are talking about and really what we found was the best route was to buy some shorter ones (turnbuckles). I have cut mine before with a dremil.....need good eye protection...lol

Cool that you like your losi!

Default Diffs

Proudwinner,

Are you saying that just one of the two diffs is loosening up? Or both?

A possibility...Check if the conical washers in the male outdrive are in backwards. They should have their concave side facing inwards. (Oops! You already were told this.)

Tell your friend to consider cleaning and repacking the diffs to be a regular chore. I do both diffs every 5-10 runs depending on cleanliness condition of the track. Use Losi red grease on the little balls in the female outdrive and Losi diff grease on the rest.

Jitsuguy: sounds like your turnbukles are too long... i used to run the offsett hubs and have no problem with the amount of camber.

Thanks for the help fellas... What I did for a quick fix was to move the ball end to the outter hole on the hub instead of the inside one. It sucks cause I only like to make one adjustment at a time, but now I made 2... I'll get shorter turnbuckles if this setup doesn't work how I like it to, to really test my car setup with just the new offset hubs.

What again does lengthening the turnbuckles do, or shortening them? For handling? Wow, raced monday nite, that belt trick, is the best thing ever, now if my front diff/spool would stay together, and my lhs would get my stupid diff balls in stock i would be in heaven. Also, does using the AE hexs eliminate the rubing while using 28mm.

XXX-S owners, anyone got a pic of the bellcranks mounted forward and flipped? I just did this and it looks a little akward as I have no pic or diagram to go by. Oh and by this mod it looks like there will be more ackerman, is this correct? I would post a pic of what I got but a friend has my d-camera.

i borrowed my friends street weapon awhile back and took out the whole field believe it or not, they were like man thats heavy and i was like really, cant wait to see what i can do with a lighter weight for efficient tourning car.

Talking Thanks for photos

Thanks for sharing the Street Weapon photos. I'm fairly new and was wondering what one looked like. Interesting layout!
