Supersoft for under 65 temps.. anything over that soft is best iMO. At least for the tracks I run at med and hard are out of the question.

Enduro's are the way to go..

Thanks guys, the track is definitely gonna be over 65F in August. Soft Enduros may be the tire choice.

the stock eclipses are awesome tires too dont get me wrong, and they absolutly get better the more you run them and even better if you spray them down with simple green and leave them in a ziploc overnite. I just wanted a second set of tire and at our track we have always run 2.2 gladiators on our slashe when they first came out. So i had to try them and im glad i did!!

The Losi chassis looks promising, I hope the street price ends up being a little cheaper than the suggested $125ish right now though.
They tend to get a little peeved when the boxes show up EVERYDAY, I have all my big boxes sent to my work now just to avoid the dirty looks

it's super nice~~~
It is a rear Chasis brace from a Mugen MBX5T prospec pt# muge0140. and it does not fit without mods. you will have to drill a hole in the bottom of the chasis and countersink it. and the part that goes into the rear diff has to be dremeled down a little bit.

thing about chris is, you guys only know him from ordering from him or his posts. when you meet him in person, he is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. his son is also a very polite, well behaved kid (getting to be a pretty decent driver too). all of the accolades he receives for his pins and diff stuff are well deserved.

I know how you feel. My wife always has something to say when package is delivered. She didn't have anything to say when I got her a ipad 2. That thing cost nearly $1000. She will still get upset when a small package comes in. But I can live with a little nagging for this hobby !!!!!!!

Some like them, but I wont race with anything that sits lower than chassis, they are like chassis guards w/ a bumper. Thing is more times than not the guard or bumper in this case hit the face of bumps and jumps and make the vehicle behave in a much less predictable manner.. at times even causing wrecks. I stopped using those things ages ago.

RPM or anyone.. you don't even need to make a full bumper ho up.. just start selling that one xross brace where the screws snap through the material in the middle, the rest of the bumper system is pretty sound.

Edit i forgot to mention that when i take my stuff apart all the parts are completly cleaned and dried and sprayed down with Cowrc Mooslick and let sit to dry before reinstalled.
I also use CowRC MooSlick, that stuff is awesome!!!!

I sent an email as well.. I'd most likely get some for security, but I have to be honest.. my original set is still fine. The only thing that wore on any of mine was the washer behind the sun gear. My guess this was mostly do to how loose some of the outdrives are, the extra wiggle really breaks down the material over time. As I've noted before, I ran chris pins from day one.

ROFL. I'm glad I'm not alone. Good call on sending the boxes to work! I might have to start doing that. Then again the only reason so much stuff comes via online now is due to my local track/hobby shop being closed. Hopefully they will be reopening under new ownership in a few weeks.

It's a good thing that I'm the one that handles the bills, she would go ABSOLUTELY NUTS if she ever finds out how much this hobby has cost me so far.
