I skimmed over the manual today. Looks ok. I did notice they goofed the picture of the body clips (they shoe an 'e' clip instead). From what I understand the alum chassis braces are not standard.

E-clips are just used as a symbol

but not 1 word about the internals of the tank or installation of the filter in there !!! that's a blank

no inserts in the suspension supports
but a plain alu plate and plastic cover to guide and stop the axles...

is it possible to tune the rear toe-in in fact ? no outboard toe-in neither ?

center diff supports in 1 piece ?

That must be Ron or Gil's car from the nats. Isn't that is an OS TZ18 small block engine?

it looks like an .18tz, but can you fit a Jp-1 pipe/manifold onto a motor that small? I would think that the manifold opening is too large for the motor.

tony, i like the idea of the metric conversion kit. any idea why losi would go with standard-size hardware when the rest use metric? only reason i ask is if there could be an advantage to one type or another in specific areas of the car...thanks!

One of the reasons is that if you run other losi cars you dont have to carry too many different tools.

I once saw a guy run a TZ18 in a Mugen truggy conversion. He only mentioned the engine mounts that he made so I guess it's about the same. He was running a OS 2050 pipe on it and it was pretty fast but he had to run a pretty aggressive clutch to get the thing out of the turns. That reduced the fuel milage advantage he had. He was trying to go 10 minutes reliably for a 45 minute main.

losi is not a company where philips head wood screws are an option. I think even the "sport" kits come with hex/machined hardware.

It is an OS .18TZ. I'm running a TNT Modded TZ in my Mayhem Pro buggy. It's easy. You just have to drill and tap the motor mounts to fit the TZ holes. 1.1 springs, aluminum shoes and a 13t bell. I'm also running the SH U header and Torque pipe. It runs fine.

Tony's stuff is much higher grade and will not strip nearly as easily. Just higher quality stuff. Kit screws are usually adequate but it is an area that a kit manufacturer can save $$ so they usually do.
