Default automatic brakes

You can set your throttle trim neutral position to center more towards the brake. In other words, when you don't have your finger on the trigger the car will not move at all, even when it pointing down hill.

That also means that you won't have forward until you pull back on the throttle for a little bit

DID LOSI MAKE A CHANGE TO THEIR SPRINGS SIZE? THE ONES ON MY XXX-S G+ ARE 1" (PURPLE/SILVER) I BOUGHT SOME BLUES TODAY..THEY WERE LONGER.
WHAT'S A GOOD STARTING POINT FOR A 19T ON A SMALL OUTDOOR ASPHALT TRACK USING A 128T SPUR.
THANX

The stiffer spring rates are shorter than the softer ones. It has somthing to do with the progressiveness (feel) of the spring and the number of coils.

DAMN, THAT'S NIICE! I wish I could pick it up; I've got the RTR but wish it was a G+. I just spent an unexpected and unapproved $240 bones today on a new charger and other items, AND NOW I'M IN THE DOG HOUSE! Sorry I can't take that off his hands.

Hi All,
Let's see if anyone is smarter then rccaraction. In the fall 2004 Touring Car mag., they have BK's XXX-S G+ car. They give an inside look thought his whole car and in one description of the shock towers it says this. "Trinity blue-graphite shock towers", now after looking for these sweet looking parts I am lost. Does anyone know a part # or even if Trinity did these? I think Kinwald made them.

Default need a pinion range for 64p on 128 spur for stock

I just picked up a xxx-s for my brother and it came with 64p spurs. Since I don't have any 64p pinions I'd like to know a good range to buy for use in stock with the 128(blue) and/or the 118(yellow) spurs. Motor-wise he's gonna start out with an MVP but I'm sure he'll move up to something like the monster in short order. Thanks.

For a Monster, I get everything done (indoor/outdoor) with the range of 29-34 tooth pinions (64p).

Default Battery strap

Here is an easy way to eliminate 1/4 ounce from the XXX-S battery strap.

take that one step farther and tape your batteries in. Take off all the mounting hardware and tape them in and save even more weight. This is how I use to run mine.

BTW...are you going to Modesto next weekend for their night race?
