The cars in my area have been in the top 3 ever since it was released and that is in a VERY competitive stock class.

On another note have any of you seen replacement arms showing up at your LHS? I would like to get my hands on a few just for spares and locally spares for this car are simply unavailable.
some people have been using TC3 front arms.

I think spare parts are available if your LHS will order them for you. At least they look available according to Horizon's web page. Plan on ordering a graphite shock tower and some arms tomorrow. According to two shops I frequent they have been waiting on the Losi supports pack which includes many of the most common parts.

Saw the other post about Joel and Paul running this weekend at Englishtown. That would have been a sweet race to watch and I hope Joel comes out of retirement to run a few races for Losi in the future. He is a great ambassador for the sport.

Did a little racing this weekend with the car myself on another carpet track in the area. Car was absolutely dialed! Can't wait to get it on the track again next weekend. I used the 2 degree Associated caster blocks this weekend and they really helped the car get around tight turns. If you have not tried it you have nothing to lose

If your LHS doesnt stock the part you can always get it from Horizon. Order it on Monday and get it by the weekend.

Well, if you LHS has sold a couple XXX-S's, and they stock TC3 parts, i would venture to guess they will stock XXX-S parts within about 2 weeks from now. Parts are still hard to get, and losi doesnt have the shipping dept. straightened out on all the new part #'s ( we ordered a ton of arms, we got XXX arms... not XXX-S..lol )

What size e-clips fit the front and rear hinge pins on the outside of that arms on the xxx-s. Also how are you guys measuring toe-in on your touring cars? I don't want to get a Hudy but I already have the RPM Camber Gague and the MIP Tweak Station.

Thanks

Mike Webb

Mike - I'm not sure on the size of the e-clips (just threw the package out) but I know they are gold in color and are used on the front end of the Losi XXX buggy. So far they have worked great for me and I have not experienced any wheel rubbing issues.

As for front toe I either eyeball it or I use a set of calipers to measure the distance between the front part of the tires and the rear part of the tires.

That's good then, 'cause I went home with the two that you gave me! haha

I needed to put the clips on the rear because one of the set screws in my rear carriers wouldn't lock the pin down for some reason. I guess it stripped, which is odd, since I was never able to get it tight enough in the first place to strip it. Oh well, the clips work fine...

Has anyone been running Mod with Sayno 3000 packs? If so how do they compare to the 3000SMH cells. Do you find that you can keep up with the SMH Cells? What tyepes of motors are you running with them. I am looking to get 2 Reedy TI Motors and then buy some armatures for the motors in the Single and Double low wind area.

Thanks

Mike Webb

Mike-

I run an 8x2 most of the time. I also run a 8x1, 9x1, or 9x2 on occasion. It really depends on the layout, available traction, and gearing gaps.

As long as you have a smooth throttle finger, you should have no trouble with running these motors with any pack with more than 475 sec of runtime @ 20A. The SMH will just have more punch with these winds, as they have a much lower IR, and the voltage seems to hold up better. My Sanyos lost a great deal of runtime and voltage after 30 or so cycles.

Good Luck.
