Can I borrow some of that steering, by chance? haha

If you have any pieces of the broken arms, save 'em.
For the too much steering I put bomb one foam in the front tires. I think it may have been too much support in the front tire. I was thinking about lowering the rear hubs to see what that does. I have to find a bunch of washer and a longer ball stud first though!

Why should I save parts? It is still all attached to my truck! Since I did not have parts to fix it at the time I left with it broken!

But the Big race is tomorrow so you got to do what you got to do.
I forgot to add I don't bother breaking in the cv .12 stock sleeve or the duratrax one. I've been told by some pretty smart fellas it doesn't need it as neither sleeve is a chromed sleeve. I've do take it easy for a tank or two but that's it, and I've got good lifespan from them. And they do run when ported!!

And the aluminum foil is for when it's so cold you can't get the thing past 170 no matter how much you lean it! Ya, it's really to cold to hold the transmitter. I just need a nitro "fix" now and then.

I've heard the same thing about heat cycle and general break-in not being needed.

Aaron:

I race my Losi trucks at the track in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The track surface is like running on a wet beach. The top 1/16th of an inch gets a little dry but under that the sand/volcano ash material is damp. The traction is unbeliebable. In Stock I run my MF1 with an almost box stock setup. I have pulled out all the inner baering covers, run plastic diff halves (with titainium sleeves) and aluminum dog bones. I have been trying to have better corner speeds. I know that you don't change much in springs and shocks etc, but what camber settings will help me? Like I say the traction is a 9 or 10 on this track. I've been running Silver Step Pins in the rear and Silver Directionals in the front. All have stock foams in them.

Casper, you could have tried moving to the short arms in front to take some steering away, or did you try it.

Hey Aaron. Good job racing for 2nd yesterday at Sun Valley. That was fun to watch. Is the fade that you're currently running on your AD2 body the new thing or are you waiting to have one painted in your normal paint scheme? Who paints your bodies?

The aluminum foil thing is easy. If it's super cold outside but you want to run it anyhow, just wrap some aluminum foil around the head of the motor. Keeps the air from blowing thru it, and will let the engine retain some heat. I don't do it much, b/c if it's that cold, my fingers start to hurt anyhow.

Just take some alum foil and wrap it around the head of the engine. This reduces the efficiency of the fins on the head and does not allow the heat to escape thus get the temp up on the motor. If you cannot get the engine up to temp and running good you can use this trick but it has to be pretty cold to need it.
