Hi, I want to know the distance between the shock adjuster nut and the shock cap for the front and rear shocks, for the RTR. I clean all this awesome truck and I want to set it just like it came out of the box...

In the datasheet is the ride height but I want the distante..

Thanks.

Default Engine size question

Hey guys, planning to race a Losi Truggy in the upcoming Flrida State series (Approx 8 races), was wondering if the OS VZ-B .21 is enough motor for this or do I have to get a 28 size motor. Any recommendations from current racers in this matter would be greatly appreciated! (Including personal prefferences in engine size and brand)
Thanks

A .21 is more than enough for a 8t IMO, i have ran a Ninja .28 in my Mugen for a while and just did the switch to losi and a .28 has way more power than i need. the v spec would be a good motor for your 8T lots of people run them in there's.

.21 will be more than enough.

I think a .28 will prove to hurt times with all the torque.


I personally love the grp .21 in the truggy(losi) it's smooth and puts the pwer down. Some think it's to soft but lap times dont lie. But......

Here is a good one:

A v spec with a os 2050 or 2060 pipe is more than you can say grace over. Great fuel mileage & easy to tune.

For bashing it will just add a bit more stress to the outer wheel bearings and the outer axle stub. Over time these pieces will be fatigued quicker and fail. But that's over time. But on the plus side you will gain stability and reduced steering and direction changes. The truck would react slower and that might not be desireable after a few minutes.

For racing it will make the truck too wide to be legal.

I'd suggest sticking with the 1/2" off set wheels. That's what the truck was designed for.
