It's not just a one off either as it is also the case with the spare one I have from the other kit.

This is freaking insane dude, who the hell do I have to write to that actually cares at Losi and that will actually do something about it.

It has been mentioned on the XXX-CR thread that I could just use a longer bolt. Well firstly I shouldn't have too and I've given up trying to find a 1 1/4 inch version of the button head screw that's in the kit.

I got asked today at the local track why I still had got it running and they think this kit must be a bit of a joke or think I should have got a B4 instead. Quite frankly I agree with them.
it's only a TOY car no need to get all worked up


and good job on making the A-main

let's see you not complain if you'd had the parts missing from your kit and you had to raid your second kit to even continue construction and parts molded incorrectly on both so that you couldn't even finish one car.

Make sure that the head of the screw is centered in the spacer. If it is not seated properly, the screw will not thread in all the way.

Jon - Haha, that was a really late night. Lots of fun though.

nbcaznmaster - Those engines run great. You won't have the same power in your LSP as you would with a .28 but you should still have great success with it (many pro-level drivers use .21's in their 1/8th scale trucks). You will also have much better fuel mileage with the .21, especially the Trinity engine.

yamrace - I run the included foam inserts, and they hold up great. Losi's stock foam inserts have always had good life.

MAUSTIN - I'm not really well-versed on Spektrum equipment. Try setting all your trims, EPA's, and Expo settings back to factory settings, re-binding, and starting over. If that doesn't fix it, try contacting Spektrum and see what they can do for you.

Mabuchi - Calm down! Haha. I'm home from the race and won't be busy this week. I'll make some phone calls.

Rich - Whoa whoa whoa! I don't want to be considered "elite" by any means! I had a good weekend driving my toy car, and raced competitively in a pretty talented field. That's good enough for me!

drrm123 - The engines I race with are the same as the "Drake Modified" versions of the Platinum engines.

dasupacat - Not for a while.

To everyone who had nice things to say about last weekend, thank you so much! My dad and I were absolutely thrilled the whole time. The reception I got when my name was announced during driver introductions for the A-Main brought tears to my eyes, it was amazing.

...Now I just gotta work on making the gas truck and truggy mains at Silver State!

Yes Arron drove great all weekend, way to go. The Losi crew definetely was on their game. AE has some work to do but we all know they come out swinging at the next big race.

Lars - Thanks! I was STOKED the whole week.

wellin - To be honest, the only thing I changed on either of my cars, over the course of the whole week, was tires. Both of my cars felt way better than my driving capability, haha.

Bobby - Thanks again. I can't wait for Vegas...I'm sure I speak for the rest of the team when I say we'll be swinging for the fence there as well!
