Team Losi XXX-T ride height

  • I have a Losi XXX-T and I have been looking at those setup sheets.

    Ride hight is probably an important factor, Bones level at back and arms level at front.

    They forgot to mention one thing.
    How to measure it.

    Do I push the car down to bottom out the suspension, let it raise and measure it then ?
    Or do I carefully put the car down and let the suspension sag and measure it like that ?

    Plz comment.
  • drob the truck, fully loaded from about 12 inches.
  • How To Adjust ride Height
    You don't need the body on, but you do need everything else for racing -- motor, batteries, etc.

    Drop the truck onto your bench from 3 - 6 inches up. Then push down on each end once or twice. You're trying to get it to settle at it's "normal" heigth.

    Do this so the truck is facing you as you sit at the table. Now, back up as far as possible and squat down so your eyes are level with the truck. Adjust the front end as necessary.

    Turn the truck around so the back end is facing you, drop it again, and adjust the back.
  • Set the ride height so that the front arms are level, and so that the rear axles are level.
  • I've actually found that the bones just slightly above level and the arms just slightly below level has really good characteristics. As for the front, both arms are level with eachother.
  • Adjust the front arms to be level and then adjust the rear to make the chassis level.
  • Hey Aaron,
    Do you mean chassis back, level with chassis front ?
  • Yup!
