swannco - Casper is right. Are they the Losi hubs or another company? There should be some molded identifying mark on the hub itself. For example, the Losi ones should have dots, 1 for 1 deg, 2 for 2 deg.
Thank you Mr. Waldron,

Where should the marks be located? They are Losi factory parts, so perhaps I just didn't understand what I was seeing. The only marking I see is L or R for Left or right. Are the stock ones 0 degree? Thanks for the help.

Casper - Well, yeah, haha. After you modified the arm though, you'd have to change the shock.

swannco - Scroll up about a half page, we already went over this. I'm a couple decades away from being called "Mr."!

The stock hubs should be zero degrees, as far as I know. I think the 1 and 2 degree hubs should have molded dots on the back of the hub to indicate what degree toe-in they are. Look either on the rounded part of the hub where the bearings would go, or in the recess under the camber link locations. I think that's where they should be.

Does the adam drake pipe for gas trucks have a nipple for the pressure line or do you just stuff it in the pipe like the ae pipes?

Thanks. I was hoping I could buy a separate nipple to thread in there. Guess I'll epoxy one on like my ae pipes.

jbrow - Yes, you just stuff the end of the pressure line in the pipe. I don't think I've seen a 1/10th scale off-road pipe with a pressure fitting?

Don - Ugh. Haha

Not sure why I thought the ad2 pipe had one. Mine does now though

Don - Haha! I didn't realize you were asking a serious question. We're doing the JBRL race at Thunder Alley this weekend.

killer89 - Touche! However, I don't think I've seen anyone using that pipe.

I'd take a pic, but I'm too lazy... The pipe I use on my gt has a nipple. I bought it used though, so it may be a mod...

Funny thing happened the track last weekend...the guy who went off on me about how all metric stuff is junk was sportin' a bright red "KYOSHO" shirt -- and I was racing a Losi.

killer89 - Haha. I think it's a mod, AE's pipes haven't come with nipples that I'm aware of.

Joe - Haha.

Default 8T RTR

On the Losi site they are showing the 8T RTR with a Losi 427 engine, who makes it and what can you tell me about it?
