Default Team Losi XXX-NT

I don't see a thread for this so I thought I would start one.

I broke my battery holder today does anyone know where I can look for aftermarket parts for this truck?

Can you run an SG crank motor with this truck? What parts are needed? Any help would be great.

SG crank doesn't fit in the XXX-NT, have to use normal threaded crank.

There are a few companies that make rear skidplates for the XXXNT to protect the battery box, I wouldn't go with the aluminum box though, otherwise say bye bye to the chassis bieng straight.

Start using 1/2" long flat head screws for the bottom of the battery box, the hole might crack a little but I haven't had any break off since.

Didn't they installed the Orion Wasp Sg engine into the xxx-nt, in the RC Nitro, while they were testing 5 stadium trucks on the August issue?

You could propably get a standard shaft to fit, but you'd need a different clutch nut, metric clutchbell and bearings, and who knows what else... You could start out with a clutchbell from a Kyosho Ultima GP.

Would the Ultima pitch be the same as the Losi?

Yes, they use Associated spur gears on the Ultima, which are 32 pitch, same as Losi.

Yeah, hopefully you dont end up wasting the cash on a pilot shaft engine that wont work.. BTW, why not just buy a threaded shaft engine?

Got a MT-12 just sitting on the shelf as back-up motor #2 for my NTC3. I'm trying one of the STS RS3's in the car now (for the price, it is smokin') and I have a M.S. Nova Mega in box ready for big races.
