The only reason i quit is because they closed all the local dirt tracks in my area. Here are my old losi cars straight off the trak from about 10 years ago. It seems like dirt has made a come back.

there is a set screw on the ball link opposite the ball.

Wish i had all new stuff. Did you put your kit together, or did you buy the race roller?

The bodies look awsome btw!!!!

bet all your goodies was over 3 grand. don't worry your gonna keep spending.

I didn't know about ebay when i started but people part brand new kit's out and you can save some serious money on spare parts.

That did the trick!!!

Just got the throttle and brakes dialed in or at least pretty close. Thanks for the kind words, and thanks to everyone who helped me out in this thread. I purchased the race roller but it was basically like building a whole new kit.I had to swap all the screws hings pins turnbuckles diff out drives and everything. I will look around ebay for parts or just buy a back up/parts car. The online support and setup tips are beyond helpful. This kind of stuff was not available when I got out of RC years ago.

don't forget to put some throtle return bands on your servo/motor. That has saved me probably hundreds of dollars.

yes it is. Go to the dollar store and look for some really small thin bubber bands (maybe women use them for hair?). Put them one at a time on the ball link on the low speed needle, and wrap the other end around the fuel nipple.

Like i said, put one at a time until the throtle shuts by itself whenever you let go of the carb boot. Obviously do this without your radio on. A fail safe will keep you safe from loss of signal or low battery, but not from a radio glitch, connectors coming loose, linkage problems etc. matter of fact it is far more helpful to me then a failsafe.
