Default Man the TC4 is irritating me!

It's too hard to set up. I'm thinking of going back to the XXX-S since it's so easy to drive. I would go back to a TC3, but the belt drive seem smoother. I just wish Losi would update to the new shocks, LVDs and just improve on it.

Default Matt Francis Std Carpet set up

The setup sheet on the Losi site by MF dated 1-13-03 shows an antidive setting of -3 with the pivot support of 4. How is this possible? I know the XXXS can be set for antidive of -2 using the 0F pivot support, but -3?? Anyone?

You put some small shims under the front roll centers. so it raises those up. hope this helps. I got a setup from francis thats what i added to get more antidive.

Default Broken ball stud

Thanks the spacers make sense.

Another problem: I broke a ball stud in my front aluminum carrier, any suggestions as to how it can be taken out?

if you have a bit small enough you can some times drill counterclockwise into the thread shaft and some times they will come out.

I would just like to say that the XXX-S isn't dead. I ran it last weekend and pulled away 4 1st places and got the TQ. If anyone needs a killer fast set-up for the car on asphalt, give me a pm. And also, the XXX-S's doesn't have to have Losi's improvements to make it go faster!

P.S.- Has anybody tried the ball bearing support that goes on top of the belt on the pulley on the spurgear? It sounds like a good idea but I want to know if anyone's tried it before I buy one.

Default Weight

Anyone know the difference in weight b/w the stock chassis and the graphite one in grams.

True that...it's still one of the best TC's out there and still the most forgiving touring car to drive in my books

I've been thinking about getting the new Losi seadan but I finally got my XXX-S figured out enough to win my first couple of A mains the last two weeks, so now I'm not so anxious to change...

IT doesn't matter. Just buy the Graphite one because it is lighter and more rigid and better all around.

Default SICK OF IT

Okay guys, thats it. I have had enough. I am throwing in the towel. I am tired of trying to keep my XXX-S G+ in one piece. I have broken more front carriers than I care to share as well as arms. I am lucky if I can even finish a race withouy breaking.
I will admit, I am not the greatest driver but I am not that bad. I see other guys taking worse hits than me and not breaking.
Unless you guys can offer me something I can do differently I am afraid that I am going to switch to either a TC4 or T1FK05.

nothing is binding is it? if something is bound up, and you hit something, it will put a ton more stress on the parts... I only seem to break when i catch a corner of a board

Ninja Viper:

one thing is for sure my x-ray T1r is very impact resistant but my (x) xxx-s was way faster.

I don't think anything is binding, the drivetrain is actually really free. I just put on some side foams which have helped a bit and I guess I had better get that front bumper thing on as well.
