Agreed. Keeping one running for now.

Good luck
thanks for the input. i have only raced on-road twice and really like it. just that the original xxxs i had seemed a little heavy looking and all the newer cars have open belts. were i race the cars come off the trace clean and they have a compressor so after every run i clean my car anyway. for the money it should be fun experimenting with it anyway.

Post xxx-s+g setup Asphalt and Carpet

Thanks bill for you help and info. I have a another question.

Can you provide me with your Carpet and a Asphalt setups.

It seems to me that the car handles better with positive camber than negative.

What would you change to this setup and
what's the differents between your asphalt setup.

Anyone care to share their setup

Current carpet setups is: (XXX-S+G)

Front

Oil: 60 wt.

Piston: 56

Springs: Losi Blue

Diff: Standard (tight)

Camber: 1 degrees

Shock Position on towner: #2

Shock position on arm: Standard

Camber Link: #1

Ride Ht: 5mm

Toe: 0

Droop: 1 mm (spring play after proper ride height)

Caster Carrier: 4 degrees

Front Pivot Block: 2F

Low roll center

Rear

Oil: 60 wt.

Piston: 56

Springs: Losi Sliver

Camber: 1 degrees

Shock Position on towner: #2

Shock position on arm: Inside

Camber Link: B or hole closest to wheel

Ride Ht: 5mm

Low Roll Center

Toe: 2 1/2 degrees (1/2 degrees block in the correct way) Adding 1/2 degrees seems to lock down the rear so I can increase my cornering speed.

Droop: 1 mm (spring play after proper ride height)

Rear Pivot Block: 2R


Motor: Monster Pro /Core stock 27 turn
Tires: CS
Traction: Jack the ripper


Thanks
rob

Hi Rob,

Got your PM too.

Not sure what you mean by the above. The rest of your setup seems plausible enough. Would like to see your car at the track sometime; but, I am getting ready to head off to the LA area to meet up with Todd Hodge about JRX-S setups and spectate at the Reedy.

Bill

Coming out of tight corners i get oversteer and people are coming under me but entering a corner my car is very stable and fast. so would softer springs help ? or should i look further into my setup ?
im runing 540 siver can and dont have that much punch leaving a corner, so if i can mantain speed without the pushing out it would better my lap times bigtime. I run standard diff with the front a little tighter than the rear and use a standerd carpet setup off the losi site. with the standard rtr springs ( blue )
would the overdriver gear help in this case or maybe a oneway ?

any help would be apreciated

Default XXX-S Asphalt wheel rubbing front spindle

Hi all

I ran the XXX-S for the first time this past week on asphalt with Yokomo tires and wheels and noticed that the hex was imbedded into the front wheels and the arm and spindle were worn from friction.

I suspect that the hex went too deep into the wheel thus bringing the wheel closer to the spindle and arm. Is this caused by a wheel offset or something else?

Thanks

Same thing happened to me before. Check the Yokomo rim, the inside stiffening ribs of the rim might be hitting the spindle and arm when you are cornering. Also, check for your car's steering EPA, you can adjust it in your transmitter.

i assume you oversteer on-power ??? if so... you're lacking rear forward traction... in my opinion you should try these out first :

1. check your ride height... make sure its level, then try raising the rear by 0.5mm

2. try standing up the shocks in the rear... one hole at a time...

3. 3 degree toe-in in the rear.

Hodge has posted a week or so ago that the LCD's are in the works for the XXXS. Shouldn't be too long.
