Vr6, the 3 degree toe and 2 degree antisquat is the stock rear hinge pin brace on the rear of the car.

3 toe/ 3 antisquat is LOSA1749
2 toe/ 2 antisquat is LOSA1747

I think a lot of us usually run the 3 toe/ 3 antisquat plate...

Has anyone had problems breaking the front steering spindle ends? I've seen alot of them snap on the inside and I broke one today.

LOSA 6046

Is there an alternative or has Losi updated them with a running change? They seem like the brittle part on the entire car. Other than that, me like!!!

That is the block the kit comes with.

Nope, I've only bent a chassis...

All I've broken is a steering rod end and.... a body.

Any stronger alternatives? Or are you just replacing them with a new one?

Is this what you're refering to?

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Search/D...SA+6046&CatId=

If so, then I don't know of any alternatives, and I myself haven't broken any of those, and I got my car back around Thanksgiving. At first your description sounds like these:

LOSA6046. They are a 4mm rod end and that's the second one I've broke and I've seen lots of others break them, all at very important times. I've heard Losi now has this as a running change since just before the Truggy was released but I was just trying to see if anyone knew an alternative or to confirm the updated part...

It only seems to be the inside steering rod end that breaks. Myself and several others have had the same problem. I put on aluminum rod ends. Problem solved. Sorry, don't remember where I got them or who makes them but probably an airplane part.

Someone told me the Kyosho 4 mm rod ends are much stronger and will work as a direct replacement. Haven't tried it yet though.

Not a problem Vr6. That is what this is all for.

XMS Racing, it sure would be nice if we could somehow get that Kyosho number for those rod ends. Even though I don't want to put a K car part on this Losi, I don't want to break everytime I stick the Eight inside on somebody
