Yes there is normally a spacer used under the center diff,losb2412. Some folks have modded their trucks (myself included) and eliminated this spacer to lower the diff and motor. The goal was a lower cg. You can search this thread to see how but the gains are small.

They leaked almost as bad as the unglued diffs. Rebuilt them with stock o-rings, and many packs later they are still dry.
I had the same experience. Stock o-rings are better. I rebuilt 2 of 3 with Mugen and 1 without. The stock diff retained the most diff fluid.

Any chance you have some drilling specs for the layout? I am very interested in this mod for my new truck!

One of the guys at our track used the rear holes for the front out drive support and then just marked off the rear holes from there. I saw the chassis and it looked like it should work but don't hold me responsible for swiss-cheesiness or lousy drive shaft alignment. I'm not even sure why this change in layout helps. What's the thought process here? More weight to the rear seems to make a truck that already doesn't steer that well steer even less doesn't it? Or am I the only one struggling to get steering (that could very well be the case). Just put in the short Ackerman bar last week and that helped a ton.

What size cap head screw do you guys use in the motor mount on the top hole ? The top motor mount screw is tight but it moves from flex im guessing.


Im getting sick of the gear mesh moving after race.

Remember you have to either have an aftermarket chassis like the TLR tuned flex chassis or dremel/machine the chassis under the spur for clearance if you take the chassis spacer out to lower the diff.

How good is the TRL 4000 flex tuned lightened chassis compaired to the other after market chassis on the market?
I have seen jammin, king headz, mip, tlr,on the web. whats the difference's between all the chassis? and which works the best and offers more bang for the buck.

Well best bang for the buck would be the Jammin chassis i heard it lowers the gravity on the center diff and its light. Im thinking about getting it.

I dont know about the Losi Flex chassis but the King headz chassis straightens the center diff out and makes the gear mesh not at a angle. But any of the chassis will make the truck lighter .


Casper: Oh thank you i been looking for a screw like that !

Guys racing this truck on carpet have you ever tried a alum chassis brace Front and Rear or just the Rear end ? Or the RC8B rear chassis brace in plastic or Alum on carpet ? Im not hurting for grip so.

This is on the stock chassis.

So casper your saying with the TLR tuned flex chassis #TLR4000 you dont need to have the chassis spacer under the center diff mounts to have clearence between the spur gear and chassis? And is there other advantages to having the tuned flex chassie besides the lower LCG on the center diff and the lower wight over all for the Losi tenscte 1.0. Thanks

Yes it does all those things. Also allows you to run the TLR rear torque rod which gives better rear front to back stiffness but allow more side to side flex for more rear traction.

I love my TLR chassis. I can't imagine another brand taking the abuse it does.
