I recommend replacing those parts with LOSA6044. It has steel balls instead of the aluminum ones and based on the experience I have had so far, the plastic in LOSA6044 is different, and better. This is the equivalent part from a Losi 8ight.

Also on this link in all my losi cars, I shorten the rod end a little bit so I can use a turnbuckle instead of a long screw. That way I can get my steering close to center without resorting to lots of subtrim adjustment.

Maybe if I hadn't been racing with the stock layout for two years then it would have been an easier transition. Nice kit thought. Great quality.

Ok, who was it that suggested putting something in the front bumper brace to reduce the flex and keep it from breaking? My rpm is catching too much mud and i don't feel like getting the dremel.

Yea, was wondering what the "hose" was that he used and how he attached it.

I am also posting a picture of a trick I learned on this thread about adding hose to the front bumper. I tried the rpm and it hit the face of a few jumps, its great dont get me wrong.,.. I'm not complaining just sharing set ups and trying to save you money.. because I have installed the rubber hose and tied it in like it is I haven't broke a bumper in a yr. so you can say or I will that this works . fiber heavy duty /1/2 in, at any auto parts store. The hose with the metal in it is to stiff. tested that too lol.. I like to test things.. enjoy.. thanks.

I did this mod and it has helped. I found that I needed to use 5/8" heater hose from an automotive shop. When I tried 1/2", it was too small.

LOL! Well, I guess you can't 'search' in motion, eh??? You guys either have better eyes and I do (probably) or bigger phones (probably) 'cause I am not NEARLY patient enough to try to read RC Tech on an iPhone!

The best news is that yesterday my SCTE AGAIN proved that it's a better truck than I am driver! Love 'dat truck!
