Is the XXX-S still competetive with today's new cars? I haven't seen many comparison between it and any of the new all bling bling carbon/eye candy cars.

Yes, it is still very competitive. You don't see them being raced competitively as often now because most races even at the club level always have the newest and shinniest products in hopes that it will make them faster.

I use mine as a back up to my xray T2 007. Couple of weeks ago I had to use it in the main because my one-way bearing took a dump on me and I did'nt have time to fix it.The car ran flawless my lap times were on par with my xray.

Default spur gear adaptor?

anyone here know where you can get the spur gear adaptor for the xxx-s

I have found a few places but they are all out of stock & i was told they are not going to be making them anymore.

I would just keep using the Losi spur gears, by the time you get an adaptor and your own spur, your adding weight to the drivetrain.

Default Which motor pinion for 3.5 brushless motor ?

Hi guys !

Well, with the beautiful weather we got here in Belgium, I'm back to racing sedan.

I plan to buy a combo Nosram matrix competion ESC & Storm Evolution brushless motor for my Losi XXX-S G+.

Can anyone tell me which motor pinion must I get for a 3.5 or 4.5 brushless motor ? I use the standard spur gear (yellow one) and rubber tires. I run on a mid-grip medium track.

Thanks for the answer.

Cheers.

Yellow > did you mean orange?
if it is orange (90t spur-48dp) then using 14t pinion would take it into around 11.5 gear ratio recomended by Novak for 3.5R/4.5R

No I think he does mean the yellow.
The yellow one is 88t 48p. Or, if it's the 64P yellow one then it's 118t.

hey guys i was wondering if you could tell me if its better to use the standard 3 spur gears or to use you own with the adapter.

as my situation is, im using around 4.1 with a 86 sp and 38 pn but i aslo can get it by using 69sp with 31 pn = 4.07 what would be better

to use a bigger spur or smaller one as ive heard theory that you have bigger spur gives more topend speed

what do people think about this

As far as i can say the gears are just numbers, if anything pick the gear size combo where the motor itself can sit lower.

I prefer to either run the 90t 48p or the 128 64p. I think the car has a better feel and better top end speed if you use a bigger spur, smaller pinion combo.

I would also just use the Losi spur gears, they are lighter than if you put your own spur and adapter on there. You want the least amount of rotating mass as possible.

Default 3.5 brushless motor settings

Thanks guys for your answer about the motor pinion.

I'll try the 14 teeth one and let you know.

Has anyone run a 3.5 brushless motor with the XXX-S G+ ? Can the transmission manage such a power ?

And what about the handling ? Any advice about the settings (oil, springs...) ?

Thanks.

Cheers.
