Has anyone tried the Trinity "CR" conversion yet??

Is it worth the 70 bucks or is it all show??

007Yoshi, If you are going to use the XXX hubs, you need to use the XXX pivot block also. It is different than the XX pivot block.

Viking-guy, it should help with traction on low bite smooth tracks. I don't think it's worth 70 dollars though. I'm actually surprised Losi hasn't come out with this already.

Hi Torry and Keith!
Everything is pretty well. Hope the same for you.
I haven't bought a copy of the magazine, but I did read the coverage of the race. Radio Control Car Action should have better coverage I would imagine. I think next month's issue will have the race in it.

Jason

Hi Matt.
Thank you for the kind words. Yes I remember coming up there a while ago. I think that was at least 5 years ago, as I remember it was just when the Losi CR rear end came out.
I'm attaching a setup that I used at the Nationals. The track was tight and high bite. However, I'll also attach another setup in another reply that will have more steering and should produce faster laptimes at the expense of drivability. The Nats setup was developed when the temperature was pretty high, so if you intend to use it when the temp is cool, then you will need to adjust the shock oil wt.

This is the "fast" setup. Tires depends on the track of course.
