...already underway on Ebay ...I don't cancel auctions once they have bids on Ebay sorry, best bet is to bid whatever you are wiling to go on each auction and see if you don't get outbid.

Considering how many guys have been selling their xxx-s stuff on ebay lately makes it seem like the new losi touring car should be out very soon. Hmm??

No Ray. I think people are hearing that there will no way to upgrade the current XXX-S G+ to the new car. That would be the sell off reason.

I was just kidding around before with my comment but how does your reason and my reason differ?

And how different does the car feel with a one-way diff up front compared to a spool?

The reasons differ only buy the amount of people selling, in theory. If you could upgrade people might be more willing to hang on to the cars.

To answer your question the big difference is the braking power. With the spool you still have 4 wheel braking. I know with my Yok all I had to do with the one way is tap the brakes then let off the gas, turn, then punch it, and it would turn on a dime. The spool won't do that. It will tend to understeer more under power, into or out, of the corner because of the full time 4WD. But with the longer braking time compaired to a diff or the spool, you will have to change how you drive the car. Simply because it doesn't handle the same.

This isn't a factory driver's setup...but it's worked really well for me on a tight, small, high grip carpet track.
Front:
Toe out:1
ride height:4.5mm
camber:-1/2
antidive:-2(low roll blocks)
carrier:4
droop:2mm
pivot support:0F
upper shock mounting:hole 3
camber link:above and between holes 2 and 3
swaybar:0.070
chrome camber ball stud
diff:locked, standard pulley
arms forward
shocks:
60 oil, 56 piston, orange springs(35 lbs), 0.050 inside limiter
tires:28mm jaco orange/purple with 2/3 TQ plus coverage
Rear:
toe in:2
ride height:4.5mm
camber:-1
droop:4mm
Pivot support:0R
arm spacing:rear
chrome camber ball stud
camber link hole:1 on tower, A on hub
standard outer hinge pin placement
shock mounting: outside on arm, 3 on tower
low roll center
swaybar:.060
diff set tight to medium tight
shocks:
60 oil, 55 piston, black spring(25 lbs), 0.070 internal limiter
tires:28mm jaco purple with full tq plus coverage

AE graphite hexes used all around
body:Losi alfa with type A wing


note-i've been using this setup with a mid level servo. if you are using a higher end one you'll probably want to put the .080 swaybar up front, among other things.

You will get a lot of great tips and tidbits by reading (make that scanning) the 400+ pages...

"at rumors about string?" Can you be a little more clear on the title of the thread?
