Hmm, my battery bar has the humps on one side, and then a little tab mounted one cell in from the end for mounting flat packs or stick packs in place. Just make sure you use some thick tape, like insulation tape, on the flat side to mash the battereis down into the chassis, or else they can slide around. And the little ridges where teh holes are on teh bottom of tha chassis should pose no problem with mounting a pack, the tighter the fit the less play in the pack, might be a little tougher to put the clips in, but better that than the pack coming out.

I meant keep track conditions in mind when picking a car. If all he does is run on a really rough, ungroomed track, he would be a lot happier with a xx-4 instead of the xxx-4, I think. I know I am, as are my 2 friends.

Thank you very much guys for your answers and ideas... it seems that to mount the Team Orion Li-po 4800 will not be a problem at all

I've got two XXX-4 G+ (second hand) on the way... well, a lot of fun to come I guess

Cheers.

Default Gear ratio

Hi guys,

The first of my two second hand losi xxx-4 g+ arrived yesterday. It is in very good shape.

Here is my question : I plan to run a 3 stars Nosram/LRP brushless motor with the standard spur gear (92 teeth). Wich motor pinion must I use ?

Thanks for answering me.

Cheers.

my track is like 150 feet on the straight and im wondering if the 6.5 would out preform my 11 turn or if the 5.5 would be a better choice in my xxx-4

My buddy has a 6.5, and I have a 9x2, and they are pretty close, the 11x2 is about the smallest mod motor you would want in that thing. We have not really compared lap times, with each driving our own, thant the other persons, due to driver skill and such, but I would say they are comparable (9x2 v 6.5). The 6.5 is about perfect for the XXX4, so I would say that might be a better motor then your 11x2.

2. Does the Team Orion 4800 Li-po fit in the XXX-4 G+. I'm gonna buy this battery for my sedans and I would like to know if it will fit my XXX-4 G+. Is there many modifications to do ? Any pics ?

Thanks for answering me.

The important flaw with the XXX-4 is that it is fragile. If you buy this car stock up on front end pieces. It used to be the arms broke a lot, now that they fixed that problem, it is everything else. Mainly hub carriers, and hubs

Message to Matthew Bailey

Thanks for the answer...

But it seems that nobody runs the Losi XXX-4 with Lipo... I would like to know the exact modifications to do (if there are some modifications to do).

Thanks.

Cheers.

I wouldn't say that the xxx4 is fragile, it has it's moments of fragility, but you have to be haulin, or else hit teh arms just right. About everyone that I know that races teh XXX4 runs the plastic chassis cause it is more flexible and half the cost to replace

yeah it breaks some times, but what car doesn't when you have a 10x2, or lower in it! This car is designed for one thing to race on a real track. I love my car, it seems that every forum I go in (RCCA) someone is talking about breaking their car. So do I personally think the XXX-4 G+ is fragile... nope.

just my .02

P.S. this is my first post here

When you run into a wall going 55 m.p.h. it is a good day if you only broke an arm.

I have had a XXX-4 almost since they first came out. As my title name states I have bashed it up pretty hard. The original front arms that came out with the vehicle were weak. Since then Losi has replaced them with different types that are a lot stronger. Can you break the vehicle YES can you break all the other vehicles YES. My point is learn the points on each vehicle and have fun. The only upgrades I did was replace all the pivot blocks and ends. Also changed the towers to graphite and doubled them.

I use a lipo battery in it. To make it fit right I did have to dremel the chassis where the tabs stuck up for the original battery and use double sided tape to the battery bar flipped over. It has never fallen out yet.
