wheels are fine, ball cups are old, bump straight(i need to get a new set when i have some$$$$). See, i had the turn.. the same length, then at the end of the race, the inside threads on the right side, go from , big exadration, 5 cm, to 2.5 cm. They reced into the ball cup stud, thing, lol. i guess it is the threads, well, i'll have to se my last back up, i better not break now. Also, should i run 4r 4f setup for a really slick track, carpet but slicker than ozite, it's something weird. But very slick, i just need loads of grip, if i traction roll, i 'll be happy, and can downsize then.

pro3racer, get you some lunsfords if you don't have any, that and either Losi or RPM ballcups and you should be fine. On the 4R or 4F mount I've never used a 4R in the front(if that is what you are talking about)so I can't say. If you need more traction go to softer tires and a softer insert. Have you tried Sorex 20's with HPI yellow insert? That and then go with softer springs and lighter oil. Also, more droop will slow the reaction of the car down too which will help. A 4 in the front(either 4R or 4F) will give you 4 degrees kickup with the Losi high roll center blocks and 2 degrees of kickup with the Losi low center blocks assuming you use the correct holes on the bulkhead for the correct RCblock. Kickup will lessen the steering response which makes it good for really bumpy tracks like parking lot or poorly made indoor tracks.

thanks proud winner, i run foam tires, but i think i'll go softer in springs, and change my pivot in the back from 2r to 4r. I run losi low in the back, with losi low, but grinded off some extra in the front. About the xray, i don't know, but fyi, hpi shocks don't fit, lol.

Its still not in the system and I just got off the phone, the ETA is still 2-3 weeks and even then, they will be in short supply. I might of paid $2 extra each for the 10 I bought, but my racers will have them easily for the big races coming up.

I asked, and so did a few others and all we got was "its in development"

My guess, its a trinity product, as it doesn't make much sense for Losi to create a product that makes them lose sales from spurs, when the adapter would make racers buy spurs from other companies. Trinity made an aluminum one, but nobody used it really because it added so much weight to the drivetrain. My guess, this is a replica in lightweight plastic.

Default Gear Adapter

I have been using the gear adapters from JETT racing out of Japan or someplace like that. They offer then in two sizes one thats stock and one that has one more tooth on the pulley. They are both very well made and spin truer then the Trinity ones ever did. RC Model shop outa Hong Kong sells them I think thats where I got them from.
