Sound like the magnets might be spinning on the shaft.

The sensor wire and motor are brand new. Took the motor off the spur gear and went full throttle with it not connected to anything and it seemed fine with no weird noises.

TLR5074 Team Losi Racing Low Friction Shock Shaft O-Rings (8)
TLR5096 Team Losi Racing 3.5mm Shock Shaft Limiter Set (TLR 22)
(the shim set has multiple sizes, Not sure if there is 4 of the same or just 2 in, haven't checked yet)
could you link to that thread? or to provide a detailed scheme of assembly?

Looking for a little help here... I built a "King Headz" edition SCTE with every King Headz part available (Chassis, outdrives, dog bones, braces and such). This is my thrid SCTE with all the others using the Losi aftermarket chassis. For some reason, I can not get the truck to stop nose diving on EVERY jump and EVERY track I atttend. I have tried everyting I know. I have used different springs, oil weight, ride height and such. Has anyone else had this problem? I have ZERO drag brake and even if I accelorate through the jump, it will still nose dive.

I had that same problem. took me three days of practice to figure it out.
depending on motor and speed control this is a vague answer. gearing.
if your running a 13 tooth go to a 14 and remember if your at full throttle going up the jump and pinned speed you need a little more motor or speed control to use that to lift the nose. break nose down throttle on nose up. if you running out of power that would cause your problem. also try moving battery all the way to the back. then make sure body is as far back so the front bumper is not touching the body if your body is mounted to far forward that could cause the problem also.. but I would try gearing first then the rest after

I think I had my first DNF ever with this truck Friday night,Running 2nd in our local club race great outdoors series and threw her down for the mains and some horrendous noise started to come out of My Baby!Thought oh well she will make it thru the Main noise or not ,always has.Truck was sick dialed all night took off from the grid number two position and got 3 turns in and Bam complete lock upHere is what I found when back in the pits.The small screws that hold the front end bell came loose and spun My motor
Bought this motor used with very little run time on her!

COG is motor skipping, when under load, kind of like going off and on at a really fast rate. like your car on bad gas starting off. that noise also could be center diff bearings or internals going bad or built wrong. out of oil. all kinds of different things. take it apart. rebuild , take the bearings, clean, oil, then roll them in your fingers and if you feel any thing that's gritty..... toss them, get new. rebuild diff with what ever oil and then take motor apart do same for bearings. brush out with tooth brush, inspect censer board, if it looks burnt that could be your problem.

That sucks. looks like its time for some new lock tite, maybe a new end bell and can. that happened to me with a truggy motor from tekin. I have replaced screws with longer on motor mount, end bells and top of motor mount. seams they like to save money on using the correct longer screws,,.. I FEEL YOUR PAIN

You can spin the end bell part around to use new holes...also make sure you let the lock tite set before you use it, like 10-15mins should be ok.

This has happened to me before. Just make sure before a big race you check the screws, reapply lock tite if needed.

Not good. Looks like someone had it apart before and didn't snug up the screws.

It isn't hard at all. Just flip it over and screw the end plates to the other side. The holes are symmetric.

I hadn't even thought about it since I made my prototype. That was Chucko's idea. I didn't think people would want to run their wires over the center diff.

AJ,

I see you're running 2 o-rings. I assume that you are not screwing the cap all the way down.

I've been thinking about making a spacer ring that you could put under the shock cap to get consistent compression of the o-rings. I'll have to make a set to try out this week.

Both are going for the same price but I'm not really sure which one to get.
i'd also be interested if anybody has tried both and has an opinion. i'd like to pair one up with a hwing 120 pro.

Thats correct, i spaced the cartridge cap with another o-ring so the cap doesnt fully wind on, its still a bit hit and miss to get the spacing right tho
