JayBee,

Just go to the teamlosi.com site and look at the assembly diagrams of the cars for their respective part numbers; then, add "LOSA-" (new way) or "A-" (old way) in front of that 4-digit number and contact your lhs.

Default CHASSIS

just wondering what chassis you use on ur XXX-s G+ whether you use the standard G+ chassis with all the milling on it or if you use the graphite chassis without all the holes.

Actually, the standard G+ chassis is the graphite one with holes milled out along the bottom. The chassis that isn't milled is not graphite, it's just the standard Losi plastic. But to answer your question, most of us run the graphite chassis.

Default Random XXX-S Tip

Just came up with this one and thought I'd share it w/ all of you.

One part of the xxxs design that I've never liked is the way the ESC wire is retained where it runs around the motor. I've always had a problem with the retainer screws rubbing against the wires when I thread them in, which can cut into the insulation and cause all sorts of other problems (including interference). I'm guessing some of you have had this problem too. The fix I came up with is to screw the longer Losi droop screws up through the bottom of those retainer holes in the chassis so that the bottom of the screw is flush with the bottom of the chassis (do this without the ESC wires in place). After you've done this, slide the ESC wires into the retainer groove and use your fingers to thread a 4-40 zinc nut (part # A-6300) onto the droop screws to hold the wires in place. Since the screw never rubs against the wires when you're threading it in you don't have to worry about damaging them.

I've also just shoe-gooed it in the channel in the past.

And the finished product. By the way that is candy blue with my own black backing, making it a dark purple blue candy. It's more purple but up close you can see the blue to it. My only second paint job.

In the first pic, you'll see that the battery holddown is not completely down. The 7 cells were in a hump pack config from my JRX-Pro SE. I was able to fix that after running a few times, so it lays flat now. But I had to take it out for a trial run with the battery as it was shown. I couldn't wait long enough to fix it..and yes that is a Mr series 16T motor. I know old, but it still screams. It was the perfect motor to test the car's, and my, capabilities. Faster than stock but still controllable. Especially since I race mod almost exclusively. I have an old Mr Series 12T for when I get used to the car and need more speed. I also have another battery pack in the works.
