Great information and makes a lot of sense. What were trying to get by adding .55oz behind the battery - more bite from the tail end, maybe slower rotation response (given that more weight at the extremities results slower reactions)???

Hey! where did our Losi expert go?

I have a question: How tight should the rear diff screw kit be on a Losi XXX4-G+?

If I tighten it up too much it barely turns and is kinda rough feeling.

If I loosen it up it turns smoothly but I'm afraid it will come apart.

Is this thing meant to be tight or loose? How likely is it that the screw will come out if I leave it loose enough to spin freely?

Real questions from someone who believes in your knowledge and expertise.

I'm not the Losi expert but I just built my MF2 and it should be tight to a snug feeling. I had that same problem with my xxx buggy diff's.

Yes I have been wondering that. But for the few times he answered he had a good answer.
