Once I moved to the lower set of holes, the car jumps like a dream. Check out Ryan C. set up on the losi site, or check back in these posts for any set info from Jared or Skipgear, they won't steer you wrong. If you race at LIR have Betts or Vinnie N. look at your car, they are sponsored by Losi and will help you out.
Anyone else try this setup with the same results? Also where is everyone mounting thier Transponder. Its a tight chassis to work with.

by the way, planet rc is under new management and the cost to race is now 15 instead of 10. wanted to let you know. by that time, rumor has it, they are supposed to be adding a carpet track. i think they may be moving somewhere but im not sure.

I'm pretty sure I've not tired the lower holes. That would give alot of rear anti-squat. The most rear anti-squat I've ran is about 4deg and I did that by spacing the front rear pivot mount up a bit.

Does anyone have the part number for the red belt?
What about transponder location? Our track has an older amb non digital system, so permantly mounting a personal transponders are out.
Thanks for the help guys, this forum is full of great info.

make a lexan bracket off the back of your server and have it in between motor and servo.

be careful with your reciver though, a transponder close to your reciever can cause interfearance.

or you could just mount it in the roof of the body

Tazman - Right now they are undecided on the red belt as far as I know. The only difference in the belt is that it is .5mm narrower than the green belt. The material and thickness are the same. They are letting the guys that got them for the worlds, run the belt some more and see how they hold up before they decide if they are ready for the public.

I will say they make the car much freer. I would like to see it released, if only as a "stock class" option. Even if it doesn't hold up in mod, it would make the car even freer in stock. Jesse actually started cranking on the belt tension on his car last weekend because the car was too free and needed some more drag brake built in. He used belt tension to add it.

PS. If this is Jay - I got your bodies last week. Should be getting to them end of this week or early next. Got swamped with stuff for Cleveland early last week.

I plan to mount mine on the body itself. I don't know yet, I just ordered mine about 10 minutes ago and started reading the thread. but usually, when I have a chassis with limited space I will mount the transponder to the underside of the body or on top of the servo (if its laydown). Hope that helps

Paul mounts his receiver on its side up against the belt tunnel. That leaves lots of room behind the servo for an hand-out T/Ponder. He made up a Lexan mount and servo-taped it to the top of the servo so the Lexan sticks off the back of the servo between the servo and the motor. He then servo-taped his personal T/Ponder on top of that over the servo, and we're ready to race either system.
