That's the ceramics now. I recently bought 2 sets and both had the new rubber shields.

I dont buy them for the freespin alone, I find they last a ton longer than stockers.

Randy, Sunday I ran that set up I ran at the last Norco race with a few little changes. The car was friggin' dialed. I still ran a spool, had to have brakes on this little postage stamp of a layout, but it was fast. It transitioned awesome and had awesome turn in. I need to rebuild the front CVD's though. They're wearing pretty bad with that spool. I think I'm going to go to steel in the front to get a little more life out of them.

That's really cool, that thing was strapped last time I saw you... err... chased after you... with it. Drill another hole in the CVD's 90 degrees from the stock holes to get twice the life, or I can give you some steel bones, I have a ton. You should try the MF Reedy setup, that's my favorite outdoor setup so far.

I may try that at the KO Race. I've got one set of steel CVD's but I'll have to hit you up when I need another. They seemed to give the car more front bite too when I put them on the last car.

This Losi XXX-S forum is more like a teen chat line than a racer forum. NOT much help here!

Also can anyone tell me what shock shafts I need to get better ground clearance in the front and rear. I would like to keep the shock collars evened out on the rear. In stock form, I have to keep the rear collars threaded all the way down just to get my rear highth at 5mm.

One more question, I run on a dusty track and I was wondering if anyone uses shock socks? I have seen them for off road. I would like to use one so I don't have to rebuild them so often. Any input and a company that makes them for the XXX-S would help me much.
There are a lot of guys on here that have tried the Speedtech towers. I believe they are 3mm thick. They have more camberlink holes than the stock towers (3 front and 1 rear). The stock shock shafts are fine. You should be able to get at least 6mm of ride height. If you can't maybe your springs are too short??? We would need a pic to answer that one. We don't use shock socks. They aren't needed. Just keep your shafts clean after you run your car. You shouldn't have to rebuild your shocks often in onroad as opposed to offroad where you are hitting bumps and jumps and running 20-30wt oil and 5 pounds springs.

If it was not for this thread I would be driving backwards still.

I guess he wants us to build his car for him.
