Default Setup

What is working out to be the hot setup? How does it vary from the setup provided by Losi?

I've been running box stock and nobody can touch me, I've TQed by over a lap on the field all 4 times I ran this truck.

Some of the other guys at the track run 5-5-3 and like it and some run rear spring in the front and like it. Until I get beat I see no need to change anything.

Yes the 2650 bolts right up to the mount.But you have to do some dremel work to the plastics under where the motor sits and shorten or remove 2 screws.

Hmmm, I can see front springs in the rear, but have a hard time with rear springs in the front as well.

Are there any nuts on the SCTE (other than the wheel nuts of course) that are not 1/4"? Almost seems like you can just get a 1/4" nut driver and that covers everything, the rest is hex.

Funny thing is Ive seen the same things. Guys running the grease in the difs are beating the guys trying to "tune" it. Now we just need to find out where to get the magic losi grease so I can put it back in my truck........

You are correct, just 1/4 nuts (then the 7mm wheel nuts).

I would go with the carbon towers. The machined alum towers will be much stronger but also weigh more. The 4mm carbon towers will be a better choice for this truck IMO.

I need to grab a few nut drivers (all my tools are metric), getting tired of using small crescent wrenches for what I can reach with them.
7mm for wheels and 1/4 inch for all the rest of the nuts on the truck.

Just what I was told, personally mine is stock, which is what I'd recommend

If you put 0's in all locations you have the stock settings. Some of us are playing with rear antisquat though. Casey went to 1's up which is 3 deg of antisquat and some of us are at 1's down which is 1 deg of antisquat.

how does the 2650 mmm/ compare to the mmpsc 1415?
just curious, I have some Ideals pinging around in my head, involves a three cell, and how I'm gonna run it in the outdoor, I have the 1415 with mmpsc in it now and that is plenty for the indoor on two cell, but I'm gonna get a lil crazy on the outdoor tip, maybe.
