Where did you get info on that...?

Many questions...

Thanks for answering...
To be honest the guys at my lhs that are die hard Losi fans gave me this mod. I searched high and low but didn't find any info on it. But when I ran my AE car that was the must do mod to lower the roll center more if I'm not mistaken. I haven't tried my Losi with this mod due to bad weather but I'm all over it tomorrow.

Imagine a full size spektrum receiver a full size transponder and the two miles of hitec servo wire all tucked nicely away inside the smallest box Losi could find FML!

Hmm, okay...

But, if you lower the inner camber link, you will raise the roll Center on the rear of the car...

If you run that lower hole on the rear tower, it is suggested to run the lower inside front camber link location on front tower also. That is the exact location where I drilled my rear tower. It is the same as 2.0 middle hole.

Correct, but like I said I only did it cuz of the guys that run Losi, this is my first Losi kit ever minus trying a 22B. When I ran it a few weeks ago the car felt fine just very loose in the back I Lengthen my rear camber link and moved my hubs forward and it calmed down a bunch.

This is a great mod and may even give you too much bite dependant on the track and surface. The back end will be a lot more predictable and I am sure you will love it. I did.

I was told by a someone that this mod frees up the rear, not lock it in. Lowering the camber link raises the roll center.

True, if the track has high bite, then raising the roll center will keep the car from rolling too much, keeping it from being twitchy or screwing itself into the ground. I ran into that last weekend at a race. The track was watered for the first round, but not for second round. The track dried up really fast and turned high bite blue groove. So I lowered both camber links on tower and that kept the car flat and really driveable for the conditions.

not as of yet mate, only ran the car twice so far, so running the kit setup minus the shock oils, dropped the rear too 325cst which is equivalent to 25wt and 500 cst in front which is around 35wt still feels stiff in the front, I don't think the spring is the correct rate for the piston combo/oil on the front well not to my liking anyway.

But, what I did not get:

The 3.o has the LowerRollCenter-HingePinHolder in the kit to lower the rollcenter, and then we drill an additional hole in the Tower for the camberlink to raise it again...???

Someone able to explain..?

The explanation is that one setup will not work for every driver and every track.
