We have always ran foams on asphalt. The car needs to be a little softer than when on carpet. The cars are not as agressive on asphalt. Normally run either purple rears and purple fronts or double purple fronts. On the Losi I always ran the green springs in the front and blues in the rear with 40 to 50 wt oil and 56 pistons. Run full traction compund on the rears and the inside fronts, about a 1/4 or so and try it out. If you need a little more steering you can always use a little more compound on the front

I currently run orange/purple(plaid) on my Xray. Have you ever tried those or should I just use double purple. I would love DP, because the Plaids wear so fast. I want to make the switch, becasue My xray was a headache on carpet and I plan to run the XXX-S this winter. Alot of people told me running this car in stock is asking for the B main, has the black belt made that much of a change. Thank you for your time.

I was running jaco plaid fronts and purple rears on my losi with mod motors....and the setup worked well.

for springs i just went to the green/blue combo as well....i tried running the purples up front but they were a bit to stiff at the track.

When I ran my XXX-S in stock I never lost because of running a belt car. Of all my cars the Losi was the most consistant and easiest for me to drive fast. My TC3 was good but handling was never close to what my Losi was. I'm not a Losi fan by any means as I actually don't care to run Losi stuff but I want consistant and the Losi gave me that. If your car is setup well and bearings are good and free you won't be in the B main anymore than any other car.

I have ran Plaids before. One of our faster guys always runs D Purples on his Xray. His car steers on a dime. His chassis is setup very flexable with the split toplate. Runs a pretty soft spring setup as well. Car is fast.

on asphalt i've found the multi compound tyres like the plaids to be pretty useless.

40 rears and either 40 or 42 fronts is usually the safest starting point.

I know this has probably been asked, but with the black belt kit do you need to cut every other rib on the belt?

For tracks that require brakes with a diff or spool, leave the belt with all teeth on. For tracks with a slight amount of brakes with a 1 way cut every other tooth. For tracks with no brakes you can cut every 2'nd and 3'rd tooth. This is just what I do, it's propably recommended to leave all the teeth on, and not necissary to cut them off.

I'm a bit of a Pro Stock driver, but looking at going modified. What kind of roll out am I looking at for a modified motor? say about a 9 or 10 turn.
