tfrahm,

I sincerely suggest that you start communicating with Todd Hodge on the Hodgimoto thread. Todd should be able to direct you to a setup for your conditions. Just give him as much detail about the track conditions as you can.

Does Losi make a spool for the XXXS? I have looked at their site and they have spool pads but I couldn't find the spool diff on the site anywhere.

A part number would be great as well.

Thanks,
Scott

according to the instructions for the xxx-s g+, you have to use the stock diff, remove the diff balls in the pulley and throw a spool pad on each side and tighten it down. probably not what your looking for, but its the only one that ive seen so far.

I'm sure that will work just what I want it for.

Anybody have a pic of what the spool paads look like. Nobody around here really carries all that much in the way of Losi parts, let alone onroad parts.

Thanks

the spool pads are really sand paper. You can just find a real rough sand paper and use that. I believe Losi is coming out with a newer version of the spool pads. Or you can do what I did. Which is use JB Weld, Epoxy, or Shoegoo. What you do is take the diff balls out of the pully, epoxy or whatever you use the diff ring to the diff pully. Then once that drives thats your spool. Then you just tighten the diff screw as much as you can. I made one this pas weekend and its very strong. I used JB weld and it will hold. IRS makes a spool for the XXX-S but you would have to call them or find out if your LHS has one. Though IRS doesnt make the spool anymore you can still check.
Hope this helps.

Chris

So sand paper towards the diff rings or towards the gear? I have a couple of diffs so it really wouldn't be a big deal.

And to try and correct the understeer, could I use the overdrive pulley?

I forgot which page, Todd Hodge setup mention about overdrive on 41 pulley up front and slightly adjusted overdrive via smaller diameter front tyre (foam tyre)...
I've tried it, give lots of front traction out of corner... but entering corner feels binding the drivetrain slightly, curious of possibility one-way spool for XXX-S consider no existence of layshaft pulley,

I had it once but now I can't find it. I'm looking for the color coding for the XXXS gears. I had it saved on my laptop but it fried and I got a new one, and I couldn't go in and get all of my stuff from the old one.


If someone has this, that would be great.

Thanks

Is there any way i can get more steering out of my XXX-S g+. At my track i'm alright going through the sweeper, but when it comes to the hair pin or the other tight sections the XRAYS just blow me away Unfortunately it's getting to the point where i think i'm going to have to buy an XRAY to keep up with everybody else

IRS makes a nice 1 piece red-anodized spool for the XXX-S. Check out kthobbies.com, click 'closeouts' and look for part #IRS181. It's $23.99 and well worth it IMO. I had no luck with the sandpaper discs. KT Hobbies also has most of their XXX-S parts inventory in the closeout section. Happy shopping!

I have used them in the past and they really seem to ship fast and keep you updated on the order a lot. On-line ordering was straight forward and easy. I'd give them an A. Good Luck!
