Also, yes, it works fine. In fact, it was one of few starterboxes that could turn over my RB when I was breaking it in.

guys on step f-08 page 25 it doesnt show o rings underneth the battery box .and the addendum paper tells u to use the o-rings and tightin to flush with the screw, do u really have to do these is it to protect the reviever battery or something cause the padding inside the box i think would protect it right

Just remember to use the short hex bolt underneath the battery box where the o ring is suposed to go. I didnt and messed up my battery pack.

Just check your endpoints and you won't burn servos up, I'm going to get a 2.0 radio tray just to be safe. but as long as you don't overdrive your servo on brake or throttle side you should be fine. I don't put any o rings under my radio tray, that was just a band aid from Losi for all the people with the rtr with no knkowledge of how to properly set up your radio.

Just to be sure I always put a smal pice of fuel tubing between the servo arm and the carb link 3mm is ok.

I have to agree , if you setup the linkage and radio correctly you will have no problems .

That is not needed at all .

The buggy comes with the correct screws no matter if you use the o-rings or not .


As for the O-ring deal , it was another idea that Losi had to stop the throttle servo issues people were having , which wasn`t the problem . Along with the radio tray brace , set up the linkage and radio and you will have no problems .

I used this idea along with running the battery box slightly loose, the two rear screws on the servo slightly loose, and pulling the EPA back about 1/8 of an inch and it ran flawlessly. The fuel line trick is a great idea! Great minds think alike!

Radio tray loose.....2 screw's loose.....i would not be caught dead with a floppy radio tray like that....despite what you think that is wrong....the tray does NOT need to be loose like that....IMO.

I just ran my slightly loose so it could swivel a bit. Not floppy at all. That o-ring thing was too rigged IMO.

I run the tray tight and the servo screws tight. Linkage set up per the addendum, so you can pull at least 1mm of throttle at WOT. I run the brake side linkage a little loose where the screw connects into the collar. IMO that brake side is the big stress source for the servo, it really binds up there. Still going strong on its first servo.
