Default Droop?

Hey everyone,

What does 'Droop Height: 2.5' mean? Is it 2.5 mm below parallel with the chassis? Why do all the Losi setup sheets (that I've seen) list droop like this instead of using the standard 'Droop: 5'

Am I completely misunderstanding this? If someone could shed some light on it, it would be appreciated.

Thank You,
Griffin

Griffin:

Most of the time they are referring to the setting on the droop guage... IE, 2.5 mm different between the bottom plane of the chassis and the bottom of the set-screw boss...

Thanks. I kinda guessed that as soon as I posted the question, but appreciate you clarification.

Also, are there two different purple springs? The ones that came with the kit seem to be quite a bit different in color (darker), but lighter in compression then the purples I bought today (20.0) lbs.

What's the deal?

Supposedly the only difference is the color... apparently the powder-coater used the wrong color and instead of denying (throwing away) the entire batch, they decided to just use them....

The HD belt will work on all XXXS models. Most hobby stores that carry Losi parts can get them, they arent so scarce anymore.

Nobody has red! I'll either just drop by Tamiya or order a set and buy red caps.
