I didn't mean to imply that anyone could answer better than anybody else, I just want to match up insert # by position (inside, outside, up/down) to eliminate any confusion for all of us. Hopefully everybody in this discussion with the adjustable rear plate can comment to make sure what we think is 3x3 is actually the same.

Micrors4Guy,

If that is the stock setting for the buggy than it would take +1 in the upper location up front to get back to +3 antisquat for the truggy if the reference for the kit instructions is off of the buggy (ie 0 inserts is actually 3 toe, 2 anti per the buggy). I don't doubt you are correct as it appears to me that my +1 outside on the toe in is really 4 and not 3 as the instructions say.

Again, when guys get home can you just verify what insert in what location that you currently use to synchronize the settings? I have half a mind to call Losi, as it is just plain BS to not update the instructions properly, especially for the damn price they are charging me!!!

Thanks

Micrors4Guy,

You are correct, the stock truggy is 3 anti / 2 toe in as it says so directly on the stock pieces. It appears to me that a +1 upper in the front gives the same +3 anti as the original piece, but I can not be sure without pulling the parts and measuring with a digital caliper. It is pretty obvious though that if the 1 insert was put on the inside on the rear piece that setting would be very close to the stock piece (+2), which suggests that it is at +4 toe in now (+4-2=2 or +3 buggy stock-1 as the 1 insert is in the outer location). Is everyone confused yet? I assume this means I want to use the 0 insert on the rear piece to equal the +3 stock of the buggy? Boy am I glad I made the simple comment about it looking so radical, or I would have never known it was wrong.

Can anybody else confirm 1 insert in front upper location and 0 inserts in rear? Sorry this discussion has dominated this section today, but I think this will help a lot of other people since the instructions are just WRONG!!!

LOL. I feel dumb now. I got home and realized I don't have the adjustable braces on the rear. I only have the adjustables for the front of the buggy.

The stock buggy came with 2 anti/3 toe which is what the 0/0 inserts will give you. However, if you are measureing the front anti compared to the front stock pwice it will not work as both setting were adjusted from the rear alone and the front one staid the same with the non adjustable peices.

in the end of this discusion (hopefully lol) +1 front and 0 will give you 3 anti 3 toe with the adjustable peices so if you are also looking to get the stock truggy 3anti/2 toe you are going to have to go +1 front/ -1 rear.

I am looking to go 3x3 truggy, so that's what I thought +1 Front upper and 0 in the rear.

Thanks

You lucky dog. We have to switch between indoors and outdoors depending on the time of year. Winter shuts down the 8th racing and we switch to 1/10 indoors.

Hasn't the Futaba challenge been held in Louisiana before? I just saw earlier the challenge will be in St. Louis at Dirtburners, the same place that held buggy nationals in 2007. I think I'll go to that one cause it's about 7 hours away.

Those tables from "LOSA1755_Adjustable_Rear_HPBrace_Installation.pdf " are wrong. The best way to think of it is that the toe-in is between 1.5-3.5 degrees and the antisquat is between 1.5-3.5 degrees. 0 inserts front and rear give you 2.5 degree toe-in and 2.5 degrees antisquat.

Hope this helps.
