Will the torqur rods work on the stock chassis?

You and others have the option of the "ignore feature " ?
And again you spout off unreal ideas and state they are opinions...an opinion is something that you feel like orange is a great color. Talking about our factory that you have never seen, thats not an opinion, that is slander.

The only issue with this truck has been the diff pins and that was on the first shipment which we took care of all the customers and then some. We have made other improvements over time based on customer feedback...that is a sign of a great company. So, for you to state otherwise, is not an opinion, it is slander.

Yes but you will need to drill the hole for it in the chassis.

Well, it will not bolt on, but like any of these links folks have been talking about, you could drill the chassis. Basically, bolt it to the tranny case, press the link down to the chassis, mark it, drill and then counter sink the bottom and good to go.

Does anyone know of a good carpet racing setup for this truck? We run on a small tight track in the winter here.

Does Losi install nets at their factory? LOL J/K

I couldnt resist.

Seriously though the initial design of the center driveshaft pin wasnt very good. Being captured with a grub screw seems worlds better and from what I can see the pin looks more stout. My problem was the fact that CS had no idea there was a change made to the part and it seems they replaced the part for some people here but didnt even bother to return my call reguarding the issue for me. I have alot of respect for Losi and their products. Some things though should be addressed with consistancy across the board.

One thing I noticed with this truck is it's very hard to traction roll. It seemed with the other trucks you would have to be catious going into a corner fast. I love how it sticks.
