Tamiya shocks and PRP towers. Not better, just easier to build.

Default ahhh - the sportbikes (Randy)

Listen - you need to go to the track and learn skills - Willow (Fastrack) is good - organized training (Star, etc.) is better.

How well you modulate your right hand has nothing to do with your survival.

I have roadraced at the club level for several years and have done a few pro races - just months after my retirement and after some sunday "funrides" things went bad.

You might have seen me at SoCal - i'm the guy in the wheelchair.

Get to a place where EVERYONE is traveling in the same direction - the racetrack - cheaper than riding on the street anyway.

Hope this helps.

Default HEY RANDY

This is totally off the subject for this thread but take it from an experienced rider Suzu is notorious for making bikes that do exactly what you tell them to even if it's the wrong thing. Honda has very rider friendly bikes that perform just as well but have better"manners". And above all else "it only goes if you twist the grip" it's your show, put it on! Once you got it try Kannan Rd, Santa Susanna Pass, Box Canyon and Malibu Rd and not untill you got it cuz nobody likes seeing people getting medevaced out of the canyons.

Most losi belts skip under braking as long as it's not to many teeth skipping

Don't worry about the belt skipping too much under braking. It happans with this car. If it's skipping under accelertation, your belt is too loose.

those are the Tamiya shocks and they are better then the Losi's in quality, however, I don' t really notice any difference, maybe on carpet I will put them back on


and as for the spacers go to www.teamlosi.com and go to the setup sheets section and look at the setups that apply to your racing conditions.......or you could go to www.competetionx.com....I have always used set screws in my suspension arms for setting the droop for the fron and the rear
