Kevin K, thanks for the link! I knew the Trinity one that was released earlier had some troubles. I had been looking at the one on speedtech's site. I'll probably pick one up and try it out.

Default Stock Asphalt setup

I have looked at all the setup sheets on the Team Losi web page.
They all seem to be for modified racing.

I would assume stock racing would call for slightly different settings. Like the spur and pinion for example.

I will be running stock motor, rubber tires on a large outdoor asphalt track.

on the setup sheets, never look at the gear ratios, except if you've been to the track, then you know what the size is, and if it is the same as your home track. For gearing, i set my gearing up for the tight part of the track, so on the straight, i top out around 1/2 to 3/4 the wway down the straight. It all depends on your motor though.

There's a good setup under there... look for "Steve Weiss' ROAR Nationals Setup" ...worked very well out at MHOR raceway a few years back...

Hi, thanks for the site (kthobbies) to get the losi parts. But.... does anyone know a website where I can get the gear and is in stock. All the parts I want don't appear to be available. Thanks everyone.

I have another couple of questions. when you buy a front one-way for the xxx-s, do you have to buy the outdrives separately.... or... does it all come in the same kit.... or.... will the original outdrives from the chassis fit the one-way. Can someone help me here so I can buy the right thing the first time. I think my car could go sooo much faster with a few changes such as belt system and front one way.

Can anyone give me any hints on 'finding more speed'?

thanks everyone.

The whole Losi XXX-S One-Way Assembly is Part No. A-3245. It lists for about $60 US. Otherwise, you can get replacement parts (cups, hubs, bearings, etc.) separately.

It may take you some some to adapt to a one-way. However, the new belt system is GOLD. Waaaaaaaaay better! You will benefit from it instantly. Hopefully, availability will improve soon.

shev- yes the one-way kit comes with the outdrives, but it's totally different to the diff setup with the only common part being the actual diff gear itself.


as for finding more speed, assuming you've done the simple things like cleaning out the grease from you bearings and lightly oiling them, got the correct gearing and take care of your motors.

some people are cutting every 2nd tooth off the belt. but i've found with the yellow belt that you'll need to run alot more tension on the belt to stop it skipping after doing this, so much so that it negates any benifit you may have gained.

this is on long, open asphalt tracks with foams (which im guessing you're running on if you're in queensland?).. so you can't afford the extra tension as it robs you of alot of top speed, but due to the grip and thus load through the transmission it will skip if you dont..

however if you can get ahold of the older blue belt, it works very well with it (i've not got ahold of the black belt to try yet).


also, what setup (including tyres) do you currently have on the car? and what track are you running at?
