Thank you Casper...

The more I've researched, I think I'm leaning more towards maybe one of the following:

22SCT 3.0

or

SC5M


I think I'm just going to want a little more than a RTR will offer ( I know how I am) lol.

I think that is a smart choice. XXX-SCT is a great car don't get me wrong but if you are going to be racing on of the other cars you have highlighted will allow you to be more competative on the surface you are going to be running on

My 7 years old son is learning racing with my old xxx sct. On slow turn, the car does not steer a lot so he has to go very slow.
What are the trick to increase low speed steering ?
It is high grip track and we have proper tyres.
Thanks !

Here was my setup from back in the day

http://site.petitrc.com/setup/losi/s...RC20120408.pdf

Softer front spring, shorter front camber link, more front camber, more toe out in the front, Not sure how slow we are talking about. Rear end may be too locked in.

I picked up one of these cheap just for giggles,

So,, my biggest problem was the car nosing up on jumps, Brake doesn't help pitch it down,, tried moving battery around, nothing seemed to help,, any tips?

Venting the body can help (cutting holes in the front and back of the body).

It is how you approach the jumps. Need to let off just a the top of the jump to get the nose started down at take off otherwise recovery is tough.

guys, I know this is an old thread but I picked one of these guys up in a trade and though it would be a good basher for the neighborhood kids....... or adults but realized once I got it home that it looks like the diff is toast... will the LOSA2954 fit in the gearbox?

TIA,
MUD

So I have two XXXT MF2's. However, one of them had a non-VLA on one side. So thinking the maybe SCT arms would be close I got two sets. Umm, there not. I can't find new arms for a good price and used for how much? No!

So I think I'll build a short WB XXX-SCT and run a Losi "Heavy Metal" type body from TBG on Ebay.

But, I don't have rear SCT arms on hand. Does anyone have a pin to pin size of the rear arm handy? I want to make sure the body will fit before I get it.

Thank you.

XXX-SCT rear arms measure approx 3.675" to the inner VLA hole and approx. 3.875 to the outer VLA hole (I've go the VLA arms from the tuning kit).

The Losi Heavy Metal Body is designed for a buggy width car, not a truck width car. The tires will be outside the body if you use it with truck or SCT length A-Arms, making your question about pin-to-pin length for SCT arms irrelevant in that context.

If you had the XXX-SCT rear arms you would not have needed to ask about measurements for those arms which leads me to believe you bought front arms to try to fit on your truck. I have a pair of XXX-T VLA front arms I would sell for a reasonable price. PM me (not post) with an offer if interested.

Thank you for the info. It's just something I'm working on the play with in the yard. It's better then the truck just sitting in a box. Right?
TBG body is 9.527 wide.
That is the same size as XXTcr arms apx. Those I have.
If I have my math close in the rear, with MF2 arm mounts, XXTcr arms and, 1st gen XXXT hubs I can get 9.64 in total axle pin to axle pin. Yes it will stick out but not to bad with 4wd buggy fronts all the way around. It's the 10.6in wb of the TBG body that will to the hardest to over come. XXXT is 11.5 apx in WB at the shortest.
