the front page says this regarding diff fluid...

Diff fluid starting points.
Indoor blue groove 5-7-3 (Front/Center/Rear)
Indoor blue groove 5-5-3 (Front/Center/Rear)

Outdoor med bite 3-3-2 (Front/Center/Rear)


I am on an outdoor med to high bite track, but does 3-3-2 sound really really low to anyone else?

lowroad....I run 5,5,3 outdoor and indoor. Maybe I'm crazy....I also run the front a few mm's higher. Seems I have it all wrong...

It works for me though...

5-5-3 sounds more reaonable to me, but if anyone can tell me why 3-3-2 might offer something, I'd totally be willing to try it.

3-3-2 will tame down your "on power" steering

All HPI,sc10 and the xxxsct bodies fit. I run the pre painted xxx bodies for practice, they are only 37.00. Btw the xxxsct clear (no paint) are only 28.00 and the scte bodies are 38.00. I am seeing 10 dollars more just for the scte sticker!

Cut out the holes along the bottom of the windshield. The 4 holes in the rear of the body. Then cut out the two "fan" holes behind the roof in the bead of the car. These are the std minimum holes cut out in the body. Some are doing even a little more then this but I would at least do those three spots.

Well my Losi will be going on a diet soon... I thermaled twice today, once in 3rd Qual and then in a 8min Main, thermaled with 1min left.

I'm running the Novak Pro SC and Ballistic 4.5, geared at 13/40. It didnt shut all the way off, it acted more like lipo cut off... slow in forward but in reverse was fine for full throttle.

One of my local tracks has that condition. For a tire setup try m2 proline bowties in the front and enduros in the back.
