I went to that from 5 5 3. turns quicker, and best of all, more onpower steering in those low speed 180 corners. The rear does get a good bit looser so have to adjust throttle for that.
Thanks, I'll try that tonight. I hope between that and the tires, i should be dialed in.

Thank you sir, I will pass the information to a couple of friends !!

hop ups/spares: the TLR tuning kit is nice and has most of the hop ups you'd want to do other than the HD outdrives and spring kits. you can wait a bit on those until your stock outdrives start to wear. i'd get the spring kits right away. for spares, i bought a bunch of spares (like arms, spindles, carriers, etc) but have never used any of them. the only parts i've replaced have been the front center driveshaft, rear bumper, pivot balls, and steering rack. the truck is very durable and i don't think you need to keep a bunch of spares around unless it's going to take a long time to get parts.

i think the stock rims are the best ones out for the truck. i'd just get those.

i'd get a decent set of hex drive wrenches like these: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...h-Set-US-Sizes

i think the most common issue you would see with the new trucks (that have updated diff pins) will be the front center driveshaft coupler. make sure you keep that coupler well greased which is supposed to help.

your english is fine!

I would get the TLR tuned kit as it has a lot of great parts for tuning and added strength for a great price.

Other things that don't come in the tuned kit are the spring kits really help with performance.
Lightened outdrives are nice as they are stronger and lighter. (replace when stock ones wear out!)
Shock piston sets for tuning.

I would say those are the high points for upgrades.

Then you can look at an upgrade chassis that will be stronger and lighter.
Thanks for the help

I'd recommend a 15 or 16T pinion with that motor. It will have all the power you can handle in the infield even when geared at 16/40.

Good to know. Thanks Ryan.

Default Yellow and White rims

remove the webs to prevent them from rubbing at FULL STEERING LOCK on the front wheels only.

NOTE: These wheels are compatible with the Losi TEN-SCTE, but minor trimming of the inner support webs will be required to prevent rubbing.
I think we need pictures of this trimming.

I run this combo, but I have the older 4.5 HV model motor. I think they're pretty much the same though as far as gearing. I run a 14t right now and my motor/esc both temp at around 140 degrees after a 7 minute run. I'm going to try a 15t and see how that does. Just got the truck so haven't had much time to mess around with it.

I did read that if you have the High Torque version of the motor with the longer rotor most people seem to run 16t.

keep in mind, this rotor is no longer made anymore and drops the KV rating of the 4.5 5000kv down to about 3800kv

so when you gear up to the 16t and high torque you dont actually gain any speed, and maybe minimal torque

I ran a GTB2 4.5 geared at 13t all summer on a 1/8 scale track and did well with it

Actually with the HT rotor you can run up to a 19T pinion.

In looking at the diagrams in the manual, I see that there is supposed to be a shim on the center diff between the spur gear and the rear bearing. It is labelled as B3570 in the attached image. I don't have this on mine. I'm not sure if it was never there, or if I lost it while doing a teardown. Regardless, is this an important piece? Do you guys use it?

Thanks
