hey,

this is a very easy prosses. all u have to do is stick a allen wrench inside of the out-drive. the side wich has the screw in it. Make sure you have the allen wrench across the screw or you wont loosen it or tighten it. Then after you do that you hold the allen wrench and while holding it you turn the opposite wheel. turn it one way then if it gets easier to turn your loosening it. if it gets hard to turn then your tightening it. Make sure your dont tighten it to much. You can also tighten it all the way and then you have your self a spool. Or close to one. Just run front diff as loose as possible before the belt slipps. do the same to the rear diff. I usually run the front diff a little tighter than the rear one.

I hope this helps you

Also on the diffs, I have been running Losi cars since the first one, I still sometimes reinstall the diff backwards. The difference between now and when I first started is that I always check them even when I am in between heats. LOL

No, because most people get a XXX-S for touring tracks. not Oval. so i cant help you then. You can race out side if its not snowing or if there is snow. Or if its too cold to race.

Can anyone help??
Looking at the two outdrives on either side of one end of the car, rotate each side and watch for the slot of the screw that holds the outdrives to the diff to be lined up with the opening you are looking through. When it is lined up, stick a small flat blade screwdriver into the opening to hold the screw in place. I use a small Craftsman screwdriver that has about an 1/8" wide blade.

Rotate the wheel on the opposite side clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwise to loosen the diff. The front diff should be slightly tighter than the rear diff. If the diffs aren't smooth, you need to open them up for a rebuild.

Franks Bodies has posted some new 1/10th scale car bodies on eBay. This guy's paint jobs absolutely rock.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ADME:B:SS:US:1

Another thing that Frank does is supply me with are sheets of custom transfer lettering for a very reasonable prices. Driver name sheets are only $3.50 for 10 same names (including mailing costs). He also does 1/2" high lettering for the upper windshield.

alright, i need help with a few things

1. what size are the standard droop screws, i thought it would be.050 but that didnt fit or maybe i dont have an .050,

2. im probably gonna run stock rubber or 19turn foam on a decent sized carpet track. what are some things i should look into buying? i already have ti turnbuckles and hinge pins, but thats about it

3. a spur gear chart(how many teeth is yellow, orange and so on)

actually i think thats about all i need i think i saw a spring rate chart somewhere here earlier but if anyone knows where to find it offhand thats cool.

Check out the www.teamlosi.com site for the spring rates chart.

I printed out a color copy of the picture and have it taped inside my tool box for easy reference.

To rebuild the shocks, follow Step F4 in the XXX-S Graphite Plus manual. Available on-line at www.teamlosi.com.

Hmmmm...Are they the threaded or unthreaded (RTR) shocks?

Use what you have for now. No need to go to Tamiya shocks. When the new JRX-S car comes out in a couple months (?), buy the shocks that come on that car for your XXX-S. They will likely require aftermarket shock towers.
