Will allow the Rear to be more settled on ruff Cali tracks and seem easier to drive on and off power through said "ruff" tracks.


oh maybe i will try this chassis stiffner than the thinner one for the rear
i race on a rough rutty track and dry .

Yeah and a super stiff front end with green springs up front. Hmmmm. Wonder what he's after?

Yeah, That's one of the weirdest set-ups I've seen in a while. Maybe trying a fast euro style set-up?

Based on the A-Main video, the track was fast and flowing.

Losi guys were all over the place on setup. Adam Drake ran his stock setup, Castellano went up in shock oils and went to silvers in the rear and changed shock mounting positions, and Truhe went to Red in rear, green in front, different shock mounting positions and oil, and 2.5mm front sway, among other things. They said the buggy was too twitchy with the stock setup. I ran the stock setup and it felt fine to me, I was mostly focusing on what tires to run. My guess is since the Losi isn't a sweeping corner type of car and the track was ran dry, they needed to try something different, and test setups for the worlds. That being said, none of the Losi drivers did very well at Sidewinder.

The shock chassis brace has been around for over a year with Drake.
