Default Mr Losi and ChadK

The car is very new to me. Typically I try to research cars pretty deeply as I build them and drive them. As people have mentioned, there are some issues with the front shocks. I currently have mounted TC3 shocks on the car and came up with pretty good results. After looking into it further, the Yokomo MR4TC shocks may be perfect for this car. They are some of the best shocks on the market and they have a short shock body and short shock shafts. All that you need is the associated top shock mount, and I chose to use the TC3 shock bottom mount as well as it is stronger than the Losi one which seems to pop off in collisions. I would recommend spending the $3.00 on the Associated shock bottoms even if you use the Losi shocks. I have really only ran the car for one night on rubber. after running it, I determined that it needs a softer setup with swaybars. I was running Red Yokomo GT4 springs in the front and blue TC3 springs in the back. To be honest I haven't built the stock losi shocks because of the hassle they are to tweak. So I have built swaybars for the car. I don't have enough track time with it to really share a setup yet. I'm going to try it on foams this weeks and see how it does. I'm going to try to work on setups for both types of tire combos. If I find something decent, I'll let you guys know.

Does anybody know where I could find a copy of Todd Hodge's article in Xtreme on the net? None of the stores here bring the magazine in and I'd be interested to see what it says.
Thanks

You can try www.rc411.com ; my guess is that you might have to order the back issue.

I don't think its online, but if you get the chance to rder the magazine ( which i think you can.. ) it is the Dec. 01 Issue. It should still be on the stands. Check out the website and maybe give them a call.

I checked www.stormerhobbies.com and they have most of the Matt Francis parts listed. Just go in the search on their site and type in TMF in the part number search area.

Hey guys, I'm a new XXXS owner and have a quick question. I set the car up pretty close to the stock setup except I put blue springs up front and 60 wt oil up front and 50 out rear. My question is the car handles almost perfect. It seems to push a little on throttle entering the turns and then rotates a little fast for my taste off power. I have the front diff set a little looser than the rear because thats how I have had to set up my cars in the past to get good rotation in the corners off power. Is it safe to say If I loosen the rear a hair and tighten the front a little that that would help my problem?

Hey Doug, that belt bouncing up and down is absolutely normal, mine did it after I built the car and it did it after about 15 races. I've changed belts since then and found the new belt did the same. I can't see any loss in performance because of it.I found out one thing about it though, you can set your belt tension to the sweet spot of the belt. Take out the screw where the hook is on the tensioner and loosen the screw to the spur on the battery side just enough where your tensioner won't pop up on you.Now give the car a little bit of throttle while you are applying light pressure to the tensioner. You'll feel the tensioner going up and down while your feeded the car throttle. If your good enough you can let off on the throttle when you feel the tensioner drop as far as it can-THATS IT! Tighten down the tensioner with the screws and it should be able to kick some . I run my belt like that with a p2k and the car does great. My last race I placed second in the A-main.Hoped that helped.
