I can help you out with that bud.

What are good places to start for both motors? I'm running an Epic stock motor (the ROAR legal version) and either a Chameleon or a Reedy 19T.
What spur are you running, and also what surface and is the track tight or technical, there is a guide in the front of the manual that is pretty good to go buy for starting points. PM me if you want.

Is the XXX-S still competitive. It is funny all of a sudden after the JRXS comes out nobody talks about the XXX-S anymore....

Competitive yes...At the big race in San Jose this past weekend, I was swapping positions with a XXX-S in the last qualifier. Only out qualified him by something like 2/10 sec.

And that sealed XXX-S drivetrain still has a place in rc racing.

Default XXX-S HD Belt install

Hi all

I am about to install the new HD belt in my carpet car but was wondering if there are any special hints or steps in getting the old belt out first.

It seems the steering bellcrank cover is in the way of an easy install.

Thanks

Can't call it easy...

To take apart...
1) Remove spur gear and idler arm
2) Remove bottom cover
3) Disconnect steering link and pull tunnel out from bottom
4) Remove both diff covers and diffs

To put together...
(Reverse above steps and might as well rebuild diffs while they are out)

Let me see...For 64 pitch gears, they should be...

LOSA3943 128T 64P Kevlar Spur/Pulley: XXX-S Neutral (tan)
LOSA3950 108T 64P Spur w/Drive Pulley:XXX-S (Yellow...I think)
LOSA3952 118T 64P Spur w/Drive Pulley:XXX-S Orange
LOSA3954 128T 64P Spur w/Drive Pulley:XXX-S Blue

Only 64Ps I ever used were the Kevlar and blue (both 128T). Never used 48P gears.

Just looking for some honest feedback with the carpet season just around the corner here in New England. I currently run a XXX-S G+ and I am mid-pack amongst 50 or so very competitive stock class racers.

I am debating running something else for the upcoming season as I continually hear that a guy like myself can shave considerable time off his laps swithing to an Xray or RDX, etc.

Is there any validity to these statements? Anyone out there run an Xray, RDX, etc. back to back with there XXX-S?

I race my XXX-S G+ head to head with X-Ray's, the new Yokomo belt drive, etc...

There are two answers to your question for me...

When the local club runs their normal weekly races, there isn't any "tech" to speak of, and so no scales to weigh the cars -- under these conditions, i'm at a big disadvantage. Some of these guys are over 3 ounces lighter than I can get!

When the scales come out and tech is tougher (trophy races, etc.) I'm on a par with any of the other brands...

I have some piece of alloy and 2.5 mm CF plates on my warehouse,
got the picture of losi yatabe proto.. some fine hour on Pro-E then carving them on CNC machining.. I will replicate Losi xxx-s proto back to live..
