I highly doubt it, planning it kinda late now. It would be a last minute thing if any, but I am already planning on racing up here, so i doubt it.

Thanks James. I was kind of waiting to make my second LHS trip until after I got one of you guys to answer. Josh it's nice to see you on. Hope you have continued success in racing. Here, I'm just waiting for the weather to clear up. Rain like crazy in Idaho. When I get this car built, I'll make sure I get pics on here..

I need to get to CA sometime and go on a R/C racing trip. Bring out my Mod Yok and the TC car. See what real track venus are like. I'd go to FL but CA is closer. Probably won't be this year though. Got to get my real race car running. A 5.7L Trans Am with a 3/4 RV cam.

Sway Bar Sizes

Hey guys,

Does anyone know the diameters of the Losi sway bars? I thought I saw it somewhere once, but can't find it now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

go 28mm for everything, no reason to go larger! for stock racers you may want to try 26mm. but 28 have yeilded the best results overall

I am looking to get my chassis milled to make it lighter.. I was wondering how many of you have done the same?

Thanks

what part?

I have done alot in this department
lowered battery tray and dropped the side wall of the chassis on that side. done with a drill press used the table to set depth and angle. works good

I have also done an ala kinwald. a dremel and a file is all you need.

I am also thinking of having the center channel milled out from the inside..

Lowering the battery.. really anything that I can reduce with affecting the structual integrity too much..

I have a friend who is a machinist and he has offered to do some of it for me...

thanks Randy
