Aaron, what degree of rear toe-in are the latest losis gas trucks running? Stock, and what you guys run for racing.

Randy - Fridays at 7 PM and Saturdays at 11 AM.

jbrow - The XXX-NT ADE and AD2 both come with 4 degrees stock, which is what we are using on our race trucks.

Aaron,

did you get the pm?....thanks for reading!

Hey, why is it soo necessary to limit "down" travel...doesn't more downtravel give more traction? I would assume that would be beneficial...but I just do what they tell me.

Less downtravel will help the car carry more corner speed, as all four tires will be firmly planted on the ground instead of the inside shocks unloading.

mafia - More travel makes the car easier to drive..and suspension is required for jumps/bumps and proper cornering.

sofast-nt - I run Losi's new white ballcups.

OK...I understand Aaron,

In the front I've got the big spacer (cause I'm on the inside) and in the rear, I have no spacer and I have unthreaded 2 turns.

Is it safe to say that the smoother the surface is the less droop you need?

Yes, that's a pretty good generalization.

Also, the more high speed and sweeping corners, the more that excessive droop will hurt you. I do believe that droop will help an off-road car in short, sharp corners.

Aaron i saw you out at palomar last sunday and was wondering if you were running the AD2 or still your AD1.5 (lol). And what tires were you running when the track was wet.

By the way your Ofna looked awsome out on the track, I have been wanting to get into 1/8th scale and i think that the jammin buggy may be the best car for me.

Aww. Aaron was at the track this weekend to race? Cant believe I missed that. I live in that big community just across the highway from the track. Anyways I was gonna go watch some racing, then we found out we had a flat tire right when we were leaving to head over. If Id known hed be there, I woulda hoped on my bike.
