Default aluminium screws and rtr arms

anyone know where I can get an aluminium screw kit for the xxx-s? Also the last pair of front arms (a1214) I ordered look like they are off the rtr, they didn't have the boss around the inner hinge pin holes, hopefully losi hasn't switched the regular arms (and all other parts) over to this style, they look quite a bit weaker??? I don't want to start running the graphite arms, twice the money!!

Hi,
I've a quick question regarding a past discussion about one ways. I went through two in the past week in my xxx-s g+. I had installed them without the instructions that went with the package. In both instances the one way bearing inside the right hub was stripped the rollers popped right out of the bearing. I have recently read the assembly instructions and the only thing I did not do was to file/sand the two pins that screw into the outdrive and roll on the bearing. I have replacement hubs coming for the two damaged one ways. If there is anything else I need to do in order to make it work let me know. Thanks in advance.

OK guys, I need a little help with droop. I have the low roll center mounts front and rear. In the front, I can't set the droop because the arms hit the bumper where the droop screws would be, do I cut the bumper and use a limiter inside and use the shock eyelet to set the droop (any idea what size limiter?)? In the rear, the arms don't come down far enough (no contact with the bumper though), should I just adjust the shock eyelet? Don't know if I am using the proper terminology, but I hope you get what I mean

Thanks.

Got a question..

What are some options for putting i3800s in a xxxs g+

I guess one option is putting a spacer under the brace post and the other is grinding some material out of the chassis.

Some people have ground out the chassis a little bit to get them to fit. You can also try putting a shim under the battery strap post to get it to raise up a little bit. I have a plastic chassis xxx-s and I use 3800's with no problems. You have to push the strap down pretty hard, but you can get the clip in without any modifications....

I had exactly the same problem with two one-ways, the bearing selfdestructed soon after I installed it. I did not even know there were special directions for using them. I just thought you needed to make sure they were turning the right direction. I think someone mentioned something about dremeling off some material on the chasis where they mount but it did not make a lot of sense to me.
I kind of liked the way the car steered with the on-way but not the relaibility, obviously.

Someone on another post claimed, that on the XXX-S most of the top drivers have gone to a spool for those tracks they had used a one-way in the past.

Cool

Thanks imjonah,
I too resorted to a spool, it acts very similar into the turn but not as much response coming out. It's nice to know others have had the same prob. I just today got the replacement hub and will let you know if filing the outdrive pins is the answer.

Sorry about the delay. I'm taking the newly installed one way tommorow 2/14 to test it out. If all goes well (no walls jumping out at me) the gears should hold out. Again sorry for the wait. Will post tommorow w/ update.

I'm back from an all day run at our local track. The one way did hold out no bindings or self destructions. If anybody is thinking about installing a one way in their car be sure to file the outdrive pins so they do not touch inside the hub. I (as another safety measure) put shims on either side of the outdrives, this ensures the amount of space between the pins. Lastly make sure to use plenty of diff grease for free movement. Got my fastest time yesterday... I think I'll keep this in my car.

Here are the pics. The outdrives and pins. I used another size shim in the car but these will work as well. Enjoy!
