Reduce your steering throw, if it goes to far, tour cvd's bind and cause vibrations. Its best if youput your car on a stand and give it some power, when you turn , you will see the vibration, reduce the throw and it should stop.

SPC racing....are you having this problem when the car is on the track or just when you are holding the car or when its on a stand? I've had the same problem but once the car was on the ground I never noticed it. Make sure that your wheel nuts are not too tight.....and take a little steering travel out. But you should not see this on the track when the car is at ride height....just when its in the air or on a stand with the wheels off the ground. Hope thi helps

Make sure your bearings arent blown out as well, the front bearings have a tendency to go pretty easilly.

hey
went to the track today-turns out that is actually was the wheel hub bearings. No more spins for me! This was my first real track day when the car was in great condition-i'm very impressed with it.
i've been having problems with understeer. Any ideas on what may be causing the understeer? I was running an effectively stock setup with 4 degree carriers up front. I think i was running 6 degrees of kickup in the front with no antidive.
How do you prevent chunking foam tires? I rendered a pair pretty much unusable today.
Has anyone noticed a shortage of the TiNi .28 shock shafts? I've been to several hobby stores, they haven't had them, and when i ordered them from one of the LHSs, they have been on backorder for about a month now......

There aren't any! That would help all of us losi guys out by knowing what the car might be. There is a pic of the old prototype in the Spied losi proto. thread New Losi Touring Car Spied

thanks, I noticed that there are a few for the TC3 and wondered if there were any for the XXX-S...

I got a used car and it needs a new chassis... I guess I will get a losi graphite chassis..

i got the new AE claming hexs and they work so well with foam tires on , i had no rubbing on the shock ends or the front bumper. even tho the fact they were 28 bucks i think it was worth the money.

get yourself the conversion kit. just beware, the harware the comes with the rtr xxx-s is pretty crappy and strips easily. Also the screws will be alot harder to drive into the new graphite, so a good set of drivers would help alot, i wish i had my set when i first did the change over.
