Don't sweat the cut-off switch, I was just laughing about the fact that an RC item could last TWELVE YEARS! After it died I cut it open to see what was inside. Your dad was pretty smart in the design of that thing, I really got a kick (and a LOT of use) out of it.

By the way, do you remember those two "Gabe-Tails"?

Remember, RC does NOT stand for "racing computers"!

See ya soon! LC

Default Steps on getting up buggy

Hi Gabe, Can you tell me what are the steps on getting the buggy setup. Assuming you go to a brand new track you never race before. What steps do you take to getting it dialed in?

I know the basic like asking what tires people uses and springs. But I like to know the more detail such as, when to changing the shock position, camber angle etc base on how the buggy responds to the track.

thanks, Hope you understand the question I'm trying to ask.

Good base setups that Gabe is talk about can be found on the Team Losi site. Jesse's setup for the BK2 is dialed at 3 tracks we race at. Using a good team setup isn't a bad way to go when your new and don't understand everything so all you need to do is find the right tires.

Anyways, that's my $.02.

Gabe, spill the secrets on shock building. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right but we might as well discuss it. I find the losi shocks work the best with little to no rebound when when first build them and then they are best for about 2-3 runs and after that you need to take them apart and refill and get the correct mixture of air and oil again.

Hey, Thanks. I'll give that a try. Do you know anywhere on the net where I can find good materials on buggy setup, tips. Like it tells you what happen when you move the camper link, camber angle and such.

Default Setup Order

Hi, Can you give me an idea of of changes I should make first, base on the noticibilities of them. What I mean is which change matter the most and makes most sinificant difference, from Most of Least. Ie Tires would make the most of difference and their of you should sort them out first, then the Wheel base...... etc..

This information would great help beginner racer that like to start experiencing, and come up with their own setup, like I am.


thanks
