I raced an ST-RR for years..big bucks on parts, they didn't seem to hold up much better than anyone else's..price a set of big bore springs..now price a set of 22 springs..$4.99 on the losi springs vs $25 for a set of Kyosho springs..yeah..not just a bit more..

Yeah..I've run them on an SC-10 and to be honest the Losi springs were really close, not any differences on lap times, I thought the avid springs were just as good and cheaper..

I couldn't find them on their own, only with the collars. Maybe one of the TLR guys can give a part number. Here it is with the collars, cheap but would be nice if you could get them cheaper without the collars http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...djuster/Detail

Good to see that you're giving the truck a second chance! Just be patient, I think the potential of this truck is very high. Glad you're still with us.

Fitment etc is better. Kyosho springs are great, which is why they've become the standard in 1/8th scale.

So after closer inspection, it looked like one of those outdrives was not machined right. Anyways, that is what I was hoping for....after $20 for new out drives and 40 miles round trip to the hobby shop, my diff was fixed! Thanks Losi!
Mine does this as well, it seemed weird so I rebuilt it twice and then just assumed it was the balls floating in the gear or something like that, even though none of my other ball diffs have ever done that, maybe I better take the diff back out and look at it again . . .

Uh.... The X Factory SC10 conversion is probably the most popular mid motor SCT - driven by The Dirtinator himself - and the Durango DEXSC210R has hit the track as well.

And of course the Venom Gambler - but I don't think that one sold very well.

Lol, yeah, I suppose it does.. Then again, I was speaking of competitive vehicles, that has a larger following in the racing circuit
