wow guess you learn something everyday.i was under the impression that all losi springs were from softest to stiffest in the order as you have it under the 2.75"....i didnt know they changed.....huh...?


as for you getting traction....bigger pin tire would help....also keep in mind where the shocks are mounted...having them mounted in the back straight up and down as much as you can will generate more forward traction.

same as the front the more up/down you have them will generate more steering.
30 oil in front and rear is a good oil that is nuetral from track to tarck...prolly to soft for the carpet thing...but good start for the dirt....chris wolfson in here is good with the losi xxxt set-ups...even when i was stumped he showed me somethings...so maybe if you have more problems you can pm him with some helpo....he is a nice guy and will help out.

hope this helps,

matt

Awesome! It sounds like some of those settings really helped you out! If you want the RC setup bible, check out this link. It is a lot of reading, but all worth it.

You are right, changing one thing at a time is the best way.

Also, another thing I found that really helped me out a lot is where you marshal in a race. If you are consistently having trouble in one corner, turn or section of a racetrack, marshal that section. You will get a different perspective and possibly help you out when you are on the drivers stand.
