Decrease the kick up in front, drop the front ball stud, and run the short Ackerman arm. You will be amazed....

Heres the setup i have now . Front Camber 1 in a half , Rear 1 degree, stock Front and Rear sway bars, Front shock in the middle hole on the tower and the (bottom in the middle hole had it in the outside) But turned to wide. Camber link into the Upper hole on Front tower, 32 half weight in the Front shocks. 24mm ride height Front, Full droop.

Tires up Front Soft Holeshots which i think are ethier not giving or to slideing to much it seems.


Rear shocks in the middle hole on tower, bottom arm into the middle hole, camber link into the bottom hole. 24mm ride height , 32 half shock oil, Camber 1 degree Full droop.

SS Double Dees tires on Rear which actually helped for sure .

I run this Truck outdoors also so my setup changes.
try lighter oil in the front diff. everything else seams OK. Keep notes do one thing at a time.. you would be amassed at how oils in shocks affect turning.

Oh ok well im using 5,7,3 diff oil. So i guess its better to use 5 in the center than 7 on carpet ?


Im using 32 w in the shocks because i run it outdoors and its hotter outside .

go 3 5 3 in your diffs.

Not sure there is a hard set rule but I can't stand anything much slower than 0.1 and I think you need somewhere north of 150 oz of torque. I'm currently using a Savox 1258 and it kicks butt. I've seen a Savox 1257 in one but the extra 0.01 seconds transit time doesn't seem worth the drop off in torque.

Yea first im going to try out new tires up Front like the Pressure Point tires in ethier a clay or Soft compound i have some . Than if that does not work il try out the ball down on the Steering turnbuckles. I may try out the Short ackerman again i mean if it is to much il just set the shock positions diffrent.

But i may try the inside hole on the Losi servo arm first i did have issues with it hitting the side of the servo before but my servo is cented much better now.

I need to buy them adjustable suspension blocks to change the kick up on the Front but that makes sense.

One of the fast guys with a 2.0 uses 5,5,3 in his diffs on carpet so maybe il try out 5k again but im doing them first things first though.

All i know is im tried of the pushing out of them kind of turns and getting passed lol.

I tried out a guy i race with MIP 1.0 and it handled and turned really good on a tight Carpet indoor track. My truck handles and turns fine outdoors.

BCE H-1 chassis has been testing great and should be in production soon. If you want the ultimate Losi 1.0 this is the chassis to get. Contact bcespeed.com for more info.

when doing this does the front driveshaft become the rear and the rear become the front?

All you need is the 2.0 battery hold down parts for about $10. All other parts work from the 1.0. No shims or other parts needed. I guess you could use the APE tray but you would have to drill holes and it will add weight and also raise the center of gravity.

Due to not wanting to look through 3000+ pages I must ask. What can I do to improve/ keep from breaking the pins in the drive shafts on the front and rear center drives shafts. Is there an upgrade that holds up?

How many have you broken? I have broke a few front pins over the years but not sure I have ever gone through a rear one.

Are you using the updated version with the set screw through the coupler?
