Default XXX-NT AD2 Guys Help me please :P

Hello Guys,
My brother got a AD2 last summer but hasn't has time to get it race ready for this summer season. So I've decided to get it ready for him.

Besides stock items I believe the only thing he's running is the picco .12.


Here's I need:
Throttle Servo
Steering Servo
Battery Pack
Steering servo horn

Anything else guys?

Out of the things I need please suggest what you would get. Such as brand and name. Thanks!

I don't want something super spendy just something that will work for 1 summer race season.

Also what size screws does this thing take (Allen wrench sizes) and where can I get a screw kit?


Thanks a bunch guys!

you need to get the right tires, that is very important in racing.

I use airtronics 357 for throttle and servo

Hump pack around 1200 from any battery company

Horn should of come with the kit, the horn number will bepend on the servo you use.

extra parts to carry are pivot block rear, rear arms.

I would put a aluminum front pivot block for the weight thing, it make the truck jump better, I would also get some extra hexes for the rear axles.

Losi has released newer ball cups that are grey. I doubt that your kit came with them. Pick these up, they will be a life saver. I would also use set screws to hold the hinge pins in place. The geometry of the ad2 allows for the rear ball cups to pop off on awkward landings and such. These ball cups will help to endure those landings.
