We need a blank setup sheet. None in kits.

Frank told me on facebook that he hopes to get some up today. I assume he means on TLRacing dot com.

Does anyone know if the front and rear arms are the same as the 4.0?

check the front part numbers. I know the rears are the same, except they added a notch to let you use the lower shock cups on the 5.0.

The front 4.0 arms can be used in a pinch but the 5.0's are slightly different

Just a heads up, the SR (and maybe the DC?) comes with a SHARED manual. So make sure you start your build on the correct page otherwise you'll think you're missing a piece and certain steps won't make sense. I fell for it at first

They posted some on their FB page (Team Losi Racing). Said they’ll be on TLRacing.com come Monday or Tuesday including an editable version.

Picked mine up last nite, finished it last nite, ran it today.
It's really good.
SR kit
Here's my issue with 17.5 class, I'm very competitive in the Sportsman class, many wins and podiums.
So I'm in the Expert class, I get that.
Here in So Cal, that's a HUGE leap. 1 second a lap difference between the top of each class.
I'm moving out of the way every couple laps, throws off timing, now I'm that guy that crashes and messes up someone else' s good run as well as mine.
Don't really expect to win, aint gonna happen, no biggie
I hear, not to worry, hold your line, you'll only get faster running with the faster guys...
So I'm an in betweener, I call it Sportspert lol.
I prep and maintain my car like a Sportsman lol
I miss racing with the Sportsmen cuz it's always a battle but I know it's not cool to be that guy.
There, vented, all better now.
