Aaron- Thanks for posting that MF2 setup...I got one more question for ya...Since I'll be using it in Columbus where it'll be pretty cold outside and inside of that "barn", or whatever they call it, do you think I should go down from 35wt, or just go with a bigger piston?

morrow - No problem!

Tyler - I'd go down in oil. My setup was in 80-100 degree weather, so if it's gonna be in the 40's, I'd drop 5 weight at both ends.

t4usee - Now it's time to change the account name! Glad you like the truck. Some of the kits have more burrs than others, it's just how the parts come out of the mold.

One of the biggest reasons I supported Losi as a parts-buying privateer was the extensive amount of customer support Losi has always had..be it directly from the office or through all their team guys jumping on the internet to answer questions. Spending a couple hours a day answering (sometimes 300!) e-mails and browsing bulletin boards is just giving back to the hobby.

Default Gear Transport

Hi Aaron...Hows things?

This may be an odd question, but....

How do you transport all your gear to the tracks?

I ask because like you I race Nitro and Electric and I know you have a lot more equiptment than the average racer like myself. Yet, I have a tough time.

Any suggestions?

I welcome other peoples responses also.

I went to "The Home Depot" about 5 years ago and got a big box with wheels on it and a handle....It has trays in it so I can take it apart and I've got all my tools organized and all my charges, batteries, radios, irons can sit in the bottom. As I accumulated more stuff, I got another box with the two "puzzle" lids....in there I put towels, ext cord, dremmel, tires, simiple green, starter box, fuel. The cars ride up front with me

Ofna sells a pretty cool bag. I has a handle with wheels for toting around. It also comes with a radio bag for the side a pouch on top for a starter box. It is a little pricey though! I love the old dirt bags hauler bags but I cannot find them anymore. The losi bag is cool but the front zipper should be more durable.

I use the Trinity gym-style bags, and keep everything in the original boxes. I use the little plastic boxes like what you find at fishing shops to hold my tools and spare parts.

I usually put tires in old kit boxes, and I have a couple Trinity hauler bags that I use for tires as well.

this is a pretty basic question, but I would appreciate some input.

How is the best way to dial in your suspension? Should you have a stiffer fron, or rear? And what is a good type of oil to use, and how often should the shocks be changed and cleaned?

Also what about spring stretching?

I running a T3.

Thank!

also. is there a better oil filled to run other thank stock?

-Track Time.

Should you have a stiffer fron, or rear?
-In most all situations, you want a stiffer front and softer rear.

And what is a good type of oil to use?
-Losi is a great shock oil...between 25-37.5 wt. is really where you want to be.

how often should the shocks be changed and cleaned?
-During a "big race" I will rebuild the shocks after every qualifier and Main.....during a club race, I just leave it and do the re-building during the weekdays

Also what about spring stretching?
-I don't know what that is

I'd bet there are differences between Losi and AE shock oils of the same weight. Just for the sake of consistency stay with whatever one you decide to use. As far as the springs getting worn out, I doubt you'd notice to much of a difference between new ones and old ones. (Unless you're Aaron or other top drivers) If it worries you just replace the ones you use most every year.
