I wonder if by doing this mod, basically adding front end weight changes the way it handles. Does it?

TBO I don't think there would be enough of a weight change to make a difference.... but I've been wrong before

It will change but not much. And it shouldn't affect ride height. The losi buggy is sensitive to ride height changes, so keep track of that and you should be fine. I'd be worried about the extra weight making the rear loose. I haven't used them, so I also am not exactly sure.

Retro, cool site. A few hours ahead??? More like 19 hours ahead. Right now this post is at 0430 AM here in Kansas, USA.

I like the switchback, and raised corners, and double-hairpins. Tracks like that give a great challenge and it's fun.

how often do you guys change bearings and which ones? my el-8ight is getting kinda squeaky with a 2.5hp electric motor in it. i checked the diffs and the still hold up, so i think its a bearing problem.

Avid bearings are my #1.....or Protec....or Boca even has a Buck a bearing deal for most sizes...and ill change out my bearings halfway through the season...sometimes sooner if something feels notchy or sqweeky....and at a 1$ a peice its a good idea.

They should be out by xmas. you can pre order them from Trinity. They are made out of harder steel as well. the only thing that will wear out i the bone itself and the pin that holds the bone in to place.

Will they only be standard length or the 2mm longer ones? I have the extended ones on my car.

Now we need a fix for the center diff case wear.

working on rear coupler that is 3mm longer so the bone sits deeper in the center diff outdrive. and we have this....


TRI43104 Losi rear hardened hinge pins - new rear hinge pins that are stronger than stock hinge pins. Last 10 times longer than stock pieces. Consumers will be able to purchase these in shops for around 13 dollars

The center diff is the same as the front and back as well. I have problems with all 3 wearing fast, like I said earlier. I don't mind too much, as the parts are cheap, but still I am not a fan of spending a small fortune on one part.
