I would say it is the biggest add on change to the vehicle that I have felt since the first time I built and drove one. (Which was a long time ago with a lot of testing / trying everything)

That's not to say the BSE chassis is not a nice peice, but It's not fair to say the TLR one is not proven to be a worthy upgrade.
Casey, when you coming to fear farm? its a blast watching you wheel the pro 4, you whip my butt , but hey i try

Hey Douglas

I will make it up there as soon as they have the nitro track finished. I would love to the run the 4x class with you guys though. It sounds like the class has taken off pretty good up there.

I'm glad you lihe the truck. I know for me its like running my buggy just a little smaller and slower. I wish I could throw the insane kinda motor that the truck could handle in it. Maybe 3 cell

Awesome good to know : ) . The small track is awesome for 1/10th scale. Tell you what, its hard going from 1/8th buggy straight to pro 4. i did that back to back mains last weekend and it was tought getting used to the 1/8th buggy

Thanks for your input, but we've heard from factory guys before about how things "held up great" "worked fine" had no "issues" ect, and then the regular populace found otherwise in short order IMHO, a product isn't "proven" until normal Joes have had it in their hands for awhile and tested the product and found it to be a benefit. Guys on the factory payroll tend to "exaggerate" from time to time to generate sales, lol

Well I have to say I haven't its been a while since I had my integrity insulted on rctech. Now I remember why I decided to not waste my time on these threads a while ago. Good thing I don't actually get a paycheck from Losi other wise I might have taken that personally, oops too late.

Don't be so thin skinned It's just the way it has been with this truck so expect any factory guy's word to be taken with a grain of salt. Not personal, just trending that direction. If you are upset about it, blame the ones that have started the trend, not those of us that have been "exaggerated" to

I don't expect anything I say to be taken with a grain of salt. If that were so I wouldn't reach out to help people. It's too bad you think that way.

Either way this not constructive so I will let it go at this point.

Sorry for hyjacking your guys' thread, I will now retire to my life full of lies and screwing paying consumers. <-----------(that's humor)

Riddles is helpful and all but gets a tad bit finger happy from time to time...Just use the ignore list option with him and the others that behave in a condescending manner so as to inform and help the many that would appreciate your input?

Casey, first of all, let me say, it's nice to see another factory guy posting in here along with Casper and Ryan. I figure the more help from factory guys the better. I'm sure you can be very helpful to us especially along the lines of setups. Ridley is actually a very helpful person and does a lot of excellent testing and usually backs it up with detailed reviews and accounts. Don't let his sometimes brash musings get to you. I think what he was trying to say, albeit not very eloquently, is that until these parts are in the hands of normal club racers, we wont know exactly how well they'll work. Ryan's been very forthcoming and let us know that there may be a few very minor changes to the milled chassis that the team drivers have been running, which is why Ridley has some reservations, because they havent' been in the hands of your normal Club Racer yet. Just because it's made the factory guys faster, doesn't mean it'll make everyone else faster. As an analogy, Take a normal guy off the road and put him in a BMW M3 on a track. Next put him in a Porsche GT2RS. Most people would probably be faster in the M3 because it's so easy to drive for the layman. The GT2 RS has WAYYYYYY more potential to go blisteringly fast around the track in the right hands. But most peolple don't have the skills to be faster in it than in the M3. I think that's kind of what he's saying. That being said, I'm looking forward to the TLR chassis hitting the market as it gives us another option.
