Default Team Losi XXX-4 Aluminum parts

Just curious if anyone knows of any companys that make some aluminum parts to replace some of the graphite parts that break more often then others on the XXX-4. Mainly steering knuckles and things like that. Any help?

Maybe Trinity, apart from that, not sure who else, XXX-4 wasn't very popular for aluminum parts from other manufactures

Cheers

There is a company making a alloy front carriers for the xxx-4.

http://www.amainraceway.com/content/products.asp.

This combined with the alloy front and rear pivots should make your car pretty tough. If you are still breaking stuff then practice staying off the pipes.

I called them once, the owner was out of town and the kid running the shop was clueless. Tried to email one time no response. I'd go the Ebay route.

I am one of the owners of Hometown Hobbies and A-Main Raceway. PM me if you need some of these or call the hobby shop Tuesday-Friday and ask for Tim or call on Friday or Sunday and ask for me.

Thanks,

Dave
