Steve, were you the copper/white X6? I meant to find you in the pits and compare set ups. I was a bit loose on the exit of the 2 hairpins by the announcers tower.

Your car looked really good.

That was me! I saw your car on the track Joey, I was going to look for you too, but got busy and forgot. I was pitting at my motorhome outside. The problem I found with the those two corners was where you placed your car. Too far outside on the turn and you were in the "marbles" that kicked up from the the huge holes that everyone was hitting. If you stayed tight, and I mean tight on the pipe, it was a lot better. I was running pink springs (think you were on reds) in the rear, no anti squat shims, 4 degrees toe in and red X-2000 tires. My car felt really good coming out of the corners. Getting onto the straight was tough though because it was soo broken up at the begining of it. If you werent almost perfectly straight when you got into the throttle, you would get sideways and either hit the wall or the pipe.

Those 3 things would be the difference. Red Springs, 1 shim (.030 I think) and 3 degrees. I did disconnect my swaybar after the first run also. I also havent run stock in so long, I didnt know where to start on gearing...I think I ended up 19/78.

I was geared 20/78 with a Banzai (of course ) CO27. I'll try to put together a set up sheet for you Joey. Also, I was running 1/2 ounce of weight in the rear mounted on the shock tower just above the toe block.

I'll be at Rev too. I'm sure I'll need to gear it up a tooth or two

I can't wait for Rev, I always enjoy the JBRL at that track! Hopefully we are still on the "small" track...

They are fast cars, but I saw this at the 6th Team Losi Championships in Vegas (electric).



in all fairness I was told that it took a significant wall hit.

Thats Franks X-6. He is known to be pretty hard on his cars I have yet to break an X-factory part on mine though.

I wish! I actually cracked the chassis, but didn't have time to change it for the next run.. cased the triple... and you get the idea.

Jesse Robbers actually won the Money, I was a distant 9th...lol

I am definitely no expert but I can see what I believe is the root reason why it breaks in that spot.

Looking at the pictures on the X-6 homepage, there is no brace or connection between the top of the transmission and the rear shock tower. That would easily prevent the chassis from being able to flex so much in that spot. But it might just make it break farther in front of those other 2 transmission screws closer to the center of the chassis.

If it was me and knowing my poor driving skills, I would put a small brace in there.
