Default Aftermarket Chassis question

Does anyone have the weights for all the aftermarket chassis? Second, which one actually performs the best(laptime). Owners speak up. Please leave the wear issues for the other threads. Im curious about speed only for this thread and driving characteristics/problems.

They are made in China like the rest of the truck and the mass majority of the rest of the R/C stuff you buy from all manufactures. The chassis is top notch in fit and finish and really looks good on the truck. I don't see any of the other aftermarket chassis going the extra step to anodize the chassis when they are done. The stock chassis is a much weaker material. Still gets the job done but there is a lot of value in the TLR upgrade chassis as being stronger and lighter then the stock chassis.



The bumpers won't fit without modification on the 8ight as the hole spacing will not line up. Not to say you can't make them work but far from bolt on.
Why did Ryan lie lastnight than??? He basically told bonzonutz he was wrongly accusing losi of having it made in China? Seriously thanks for the answer though Casper

I keep blowing the drive pin out of the front center drive shaft. On my third drive shaft setup now. Anyone have similar experience or a cure?

Yes, infact I did it again last night and once last week. Last night was my 5th time it's happened since I got the truck the first week it came out and 2nd time in exactly a week. The good news...There's a captured fix that's already on some of the team drivers cars and it's supposed to be out in a few weeks...The bad news, it's not out right now But you can shrink wrap the plastic sleeve (a new one, not the one the pin punched through) and that'll help prolong the pin from wearing through.

I thought about this. It gave me flashbacks of the dog bones on my Tamiya Frog!

I'll give it a shot. Glad to gear about a real fix in the works.

People's lifes on the line in my job, I know these are just toy cars but it's besides the point.. I know the shady things that happen in foreign country on quality control and none of it can be trusted!
I would tend to agree with you except that this happens every where, even here in the good ol USA.

I didnt lie and the fact that you posted this is absurd. I have never lied and even put my job in jeopardy a few times with the info I have given out in here. But because of people like you, I have to continually explain myself. Casper is my best friend and one of the smartest people I know. It does not mean he knows exactly where everything comes from as I am the product manager for the product, not him. He was guessing and trying to help out and I dont fault him for making a mistake. Bonsonutz was wrong by "accusing" anyone of anything he was not sure of. That is what was wrong in my personal opinion.

Since its so important to you...the chassis is made in Taiwan.

The best way to fix this until the retained pin comes out is to apply a healthy amount of grease on the joint and in the joint. What can cause this is mositure getting into the parts and then making them rust which makes them stick. Basically they get stuck in the outermost point and rub at the plastic, more and more, and eventually it comes out.

I am wrong. I thought it was coming out of china but there are lots of places Losi gets stuff from. Ryan knows best. What he says is correct. I am wrong on where it is made. Sorry. I really don't care where it comes from to be honest. As long as it works!

that is infact for the 1/8ths I was just simply posting a link to show what I was asking for. I do not have a split center diff mount on mine wish I did though. I can't wait to get a day off so I can go try this baby out
