dude people were talking about it and i didnt know what it was and obviously they do. so why would i go somewhere else to ask a question when i know that there are people who know the answer right where i am????????

Keep an eye on your chassis where your droop screws hit the stops. The small screws will chew down the chassis over time and cause premature wear. You can prevent this by installing 4-40 x 4mm Droop Screws (part#LOSA6253) I highly recommend you use a tap set on the screws. If you screw up the holes it's impossible to fix. USE THE TAP!!! http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=LOSA6253


This is on the front page of this thread first post. When doing this mod are we talking about making new holes for the droop screws? My stock locations are already oversized and the 4-40 droop screws I bought wont fit. Am I missing something here?
uh, there are no stock locations. You have to drill holes and thread them with the 4/40 tap.

I did add two shim before rebuilding the rear diff so I hope it will last a while.
Where did you get said shims?

You have to install these on the chassis, not the arms.

I used shims I had from my Mugen Eco. Placed two shims between the bearing and diff case.

Game will be on a 26in flat screen at the track! It will be set up under the oak trees, you bring the burgers and beer.
But seriously we will have the game on at the track under the trees and on in my trailer.


And I for sure will have my GAME ON on the track. This Sunday could have the most Losi's ever.

The Stock RTR electronics in this truck are very race worthy. I could not consider these electronics desposable like a lot of systems out there. Motor is strong and fast and ESC is very adjustable.

Also in case you guys missed it, these were annouced today.

Sweet, been waiting for these. I've just been crossing my fingers and hoping they won't tech me for ROAR races. My width with the Blitz hexes is about a mm too wide.
