"J. Wright: Post # 1963 and #1965 (nice picture) on how to measure Droop. You will need a digital caliper to measure it. You are correct. 95mm in the front 106mm in the rear. Hope this helps."

Talking Hey guys

Hey guys I just got my starter box in today and lined everything up but it looks like I am going to have to cut the chassis a little to open it up for the wheel to fit. I have this starter box
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/8453
So do any of you know how much I have to cut the chassis or do you have a picture I can go by. Thanks guys.

dont cut the chassis -

You can modify your starter box wheel. Losi is aware of this and posted a starter box modification on their website - here it is: http://www.teamlosi.com/Products/Hin...rodID=LOSK0800

Talking Yeah man

Yeah I did click on that but I just do not get if I cut the whole wheel like that or just one side. See what I am saying. Look at the picture on your last link with the slanted angles in red you will see what I am talking about.

Default Radio setup on Throttle and brake servo

I have a JR DX3 radio with 9000S servo on the throttle. The whole setup is out of whack. I setup the servo arm and links according to the instructions. It pulls to much on the servo to open the throttle but will not open all the way at maximum throw. If I readjust the arm then I have to much on the brake side.
What to do???

chamfer both sides of the starter wheel.

JWRockman - did you center the servo before installing the servo horn?

If all of the linkages are set properly, set all of the settings to your radio back to zero and start over.

So do you mean do the all four sides of the starter wheel. I am sorry it is just not clicking to me yet.

Let's get it right.. Release the car AND it's supporting products OR at least tell us which other manufactures oils are the closest match. It's really a shot in the dark on which oils to use to get out of the box matching performance which we tuned the setups around in the first place.
Sportwreks diff oil is more than likely the same as the Losi oil since they are Horizon Hobbies aswell.

You only need to chamfer the two edges of the wheel. Simply run the box, and while it's running, get a file and put an angle on the edge. The photos on the Losi sight explain it perfectly. The photo of the red triangles shows where you need to take material off. The wheel will go from having square edges to edges with an angle.

Ok thanks man. Here is a picture from a diffrent forum on what a guy did for his chassis to fit on the starter box. I might just do this it looks easier and I do not have to screw with the wheel.

Tell me what you think I should do.
