Aaron,I practiced with my AD2 with my Rex RN 12 yesterday and it is way smoother than the O.S. 12 TR.

Casper - LOL..yeah..that was tough.

Wait until those necks come to Hemet! Woo boy!

SoFast - More power tends to feel like that as long as there is decent traction. That's why I detest so-called "traction control" motors.

Aaron,

What's your take on the "senior slump?" I'm holding strong for the moment, but I fear that any day I could snap and fall into the endless pit of "I don't care mode."

Its soo tempting...I get Text msgs all day..."chris, frisbee on the field in 5th Period" or "Starbucks @ 2" but I feel like I'm too close to crap out now. I think I'm due for a major league skip...or two or three here pretty soon!

Senioritis is inevitable. Bust your butt for 3 1/2 years, find out your college's policy on second semester senior year grades, and have fun!

Sorry to throw a racing question into this soap opera but....


The chassis on my AD2 started cupping (bending) after about 2 race weekends. It starts right at the rear motor mounting holes. I haven't landed any jumps on the battery box.

How much is acceptable until the anti -squat setting are useless?

Hi Aaron,
I was racing today and was really in a struggle for traction all the way around the car (XXX-NT AD1) But my question is, assuming the car is in proper working order. What does laying the shocks down, lighter oils, and softer springs what effects do they have on traction and handling. I dont know if there is a 100% answer, just looking for a generalization..i was scared to change something, thought it might be in the wrong direction.

I have just gotten back into the hobby, and wanted to know a few things about the Losi GTX(I have a skeleton of one, not a full roller yet). What parts on the xxx-nt are interchangable with the GTX? Also, what type of engine would I need for the GTX? Do the rims for the xxx-nt work on the GTX?

Aaron,

Do servos wear out? I'm not worried at this point, my servos are still faster than I can handle, but should I wait for them to detonate or simply replace them every few years or so?

Cool Servo wear..........

Mafia: I have been doing this since 1988 and have been using Airtronics servos since I started. The answer to your question is yes. Thy will develop slop in the gear-mesh over time and it gets multiplied through all the joints of your steering. You can send them in for rebuild or just get new ones. I use the 94757 for steering and when I was racing gas truck (losi xxx-NT) I used that for throttle and the 94758 for steering. They are expensive but the best doesn't come cheap. The one I have in my XXX-T MF2 is a 3 year old 94757, and it is still going strong.

AW- A page back or so you said you despise so called traction control motors. I was wondering what exactly you meant by that, what is a traction control motor? I think I have an idea about what you're talking about, but not sure.
