Its rare when I will speak up about this kind of thing and you are totally entitled to say its the best thing since sliced bread. But if you want to say it lasts twice as long, please be sure to indicate what it lasts twice as long as. Due to the question at hand, you infer it will last twice as long as the other aftermarket chassis brands and that simply is false. They are all great pieces and offer their advantages. Enjoy your evening.

Guys, it's late and I'm rebuilding my truck. Is there a setup sheet anywhere that shows the team setups using the new springs and pistons? Everything I see are for the old gold/silver/black and stock pistons.

I really need a setup for a big, very hardpack, high bite track with big jumps.

I'm having trouble with the rear end not staying put coming out of corners and I can't sort it. My kid's truck that I just pulled out of the box today and changed the grease to 553 is so dialed that I'm thinking of stealing it for the race, but I'd rather get mine sorted. I have the new springs and pistons but just need a setup ASAP.

Anyone out there please help!!!

Can't seem to pull up the setups on the Losi site. Show blank set up sheets. Any one know what's up?

Fun day at the track, my SCTe and R52 and R45 did great, however we need some bigger tracks in my area (or less rain). We had some smash laps, was fun to watch.

-Check your center dif..... take off from the truck in the mounting bracket , now try and spin the gear. If it's binding, look at the plastick mount side. It will be the side facing the front. Where the outdrive comes through the bracket look at the outdrive I bet its rubbing there and causing a braking efect when in the air. I changed to light oudrives and used my body reemer to open the plastick hole where the outdrive rubbed. Maby its this same thing I just found yesterday! Please let me know what you found!

Make sure there is no drag brake set up in your radio or speed control.

A little throttle? Might just be the jumps them selves ,sometimes I am pinned thru the whole jump or full pull right at lift off, cuzz the jump just sucks!!!Some time it just takes more than a little throttle to fix this!(Normal)

Exclamation

Ryan, I dont Think PorkChop was tiring to insult any one.
Just that He has been around this RC Racing scene
Many years, and has witnessed lots of interesting
things.. Regarding his statement Lasting twice as long
I have some photos and details regarding why he has
made that claim..
As I explained last night about the use of 7075 T6 Mil Spec
Billet Here are some of the examples of Asian/Import Alclad
and its major shortcomings..
Droop screw damage


Diff Box bending and Chassis pocketing distortion


Chassis fatigue and fracture
