Default Losi Hinge Pin Braces

I am going to buy the adjustable hinge pin braces for my Losi 8ight 2.0. I believe that somewhere else I read that the paper work that comes with them denoting which insert gives you which adjustment is printed wrong. Is this true? If so, does anyone know the accurate insert and adjustment changes?

What you want is zero in all positions except for rear antisquat, you want 1 up.

Is zero in all positions what is considered the base setup, otherwise putting the hinge pins in the same position as the fixed braces that come with the roller stock?

I just received my losi adjustable hinge pin set today for my buggy. I don't know if the sheet with mine is the "revised" settings or not.....? I scanned it so I could post it here.




I want a 3/3 setting so according to this sheet I would use a 1 degree insert on the outside for toe-in and a 1 degree insert in the up position for anti-squat.

Is this sheet correct?

Thank you,

that is exactly what I was wanting to see.

Looks like if there was ever a problem, it has been revised.

Great, now I have to check mine. I used "1" to get 3 degrees toe-in like it said on the sheet.

I just assembled mine with 1 and 1 inserts. So I guess that means I'm running 4 degrees of toe-in and 3 degrees of anti-squat?

I'm assuming having 4 degrees of toe-in would just add to the rear traction?

Does anybody run that much? I used to always run 3/3 but I might give the 4/3 a try and if I don't like it I will put it back to the 0 insert.
