No, no BK Bonez....Todd couldn't give any out, we'll see at the race up here if antes up with my ferrari staring him down.

We did get black belts and peter got a professionally drilled shock tower(with the higher in between holes).

Default gearing

How many teeth does the stock yellow spur have on it? Also what pitch is it, 48 or 64?

what they mean by limiters is placing spacers inside the shocks and setting the droop by shock length to avoid the flexing of the bumper with the stock droop screws.

The Losi part number for the shock limiters is A-5050. Think they cost me $2/pack. They are just round plastic spacers with a specific height.

Per Todd Hodge, he opens his limiters up a bit on one side (c-shape) to be able to snap them on and off the shock shafts.

Limiters are typically used to limit up or down traval(or both in some cases). A lot of the Losi drivers are now using limiters and placing ball cups on the end of the shop shafts to set droop, as it isn't very accurate with the stock bumpers because they flex. So, they use the bottom shock collar to adjust the droop height up or down by loosening or tightening the collar. It's VERY time consuming compared to the stock droop setup, but its a ton more accurate. If yer worried you probably could buy the extra rigid bumpers. I am working on some aluminum/carbon fiber pieces to replace the stock ones. Some drivers tapped out their arms and did it tc3 style to set droop.

As for the hub carriers, the way it was explain to me was at 4 degrees, you usually would run 2 degrees of kickup(or antidive, I can't remember, I am WAY sleep deprived from snowbirds!). With the 6 degress, you run zero kickup. The 6 degree setup will make the car less twitchy and smooth out the steering. I switched to the 6 degree setup in the 2nd heat of the club race and I didn't like it. Felt like I was riding in the car with my mom driving!

Default Team PRP products

Hey guys, I was doing some research for a friend with a XXXs. His sedan he got in a trade, and from what I gather from Steve Wang@Speed Tech RC, the shock towers are from Team PRP. They are graphite, with a million (ok 56 ) holes in the rear shock tower. Any info on thier web site, or how to get in touch with them? He decided to stop on the straightaway and adjust his radio, and I gave his ride a carbon fiber enema : I know it wasn't my fault, but I feel bad anyways... Any help would be appreciated!!!

Post PRP shock towers

There is a vendor on eBay, richeddy, selling prp shock towers front AND rear for 11.95 a set. I bought a set a month ago for my asphalt car because I run 4 deg anti squat and needed the lower holes to get the right droop. I liked them so much I bought a second set for my carpet car last week. The front tower is also a bonus since it already has the hole drilled up and between #2 and #3 for the camber like most of the pros are running.

okay, i have a weird phenomonom going on here. At the bigging of the race, all my cambers are set to where i want it, but ant the end of the race, my right rear has only about 1/3 of the tire touching(no gauge availalbe.) I instantly think that the turnbuckle is stripping out the ball cup, and sliding in, because the right one is significantly shorter than the left side. So i try to push and pull apart the two, and they don't move, so how can it be stripped, i can't move it, i think it may be vibrations, but could it be something else?

Do they links look like they have not changed their length? Also check the ballcups to see if they are bent. That's about all I can think of besides your wheels being warped, look at the wheels for warpage also.
