I also run the losi bumper brace, sorry i dont know the p/n off hand... but that has helped... just be sure to grind the bumper out to get it sitting flat with the tranny case bracket and it'll last a long long while...

If you run the BRP lower bumper and the upper Losi lexan brace it will cut your broken parts down to a minimum. I promise!! I learned the hard way myself. One additional thing I did was to trace the outline of the lexan brace on some aluminum and made braces out of it as well. The lexan will eventually break but the aluminum never did. Plus I got to polish it and made it look very nice. But first the BRP lower brace will help the most.

Default breakage

I race with some tc4 and xrays and they break as much as or
more than my sss g+.I a running the stock g+ bumpers and
they give more than enough protection.

BRP makes an add-on bumper for the TC4 too...he, he...

Really, the BRP add-on bumper by virtue of its added width adds tons of protection to the front end of the XXX-S.

Also, you may want to try AE shocks if you have them, I am going to try them with Tamiya Blue springs on the front and Tamiya Yellow springs on the rear. With 40 wt oil on all four corners.

Be sure to degrease all bearings before use. And it will help your setup if you dial in some droop. But I run on uneven asphalt so I donít.

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.

I felt the way you do last July. I did three things that helped significantly. I bought a brace like they are talking about that sits on top of the bumper and connects the two posts with the front diff cover, I also got that BRP wider lower bumper.

In addtion, I adjusted my transmitter to apply brakes when the trigger was at neutral(drag brake). This helped me take sharp corners without losing control because it automatically slowed the car significantly when I released the throttle cause I was approaching corner a little to fast.
You may be a better driver than me and this drag brake may be kind of a crutch or a hinderance . It helped me cause it forced me to slow down.

Steel outdrives can be found through Horizon Hobbies.

www.horizonhobby.com

You can use the new ones if you like just be sure to CA the spool when it is built together. I have an extra one that I might be able to sell you if you want it.

yeah, i'm building a spool
i came across the one from irrgang, but they're hard-coated aluminum.

XXX-S, XXX-T, and XXX BK use the same outdrives. Gen II cars (MF2, BK2) use the newer outdrives.

I belive the part number is LOSA3073 for the steel outdrives.

I'd go with the IRS Racing outdrives, but they are a bit spendy.
