Default XXXT Sport II ?s

Hey yall, my dad just surprised me with a XXXT Sport II last night...any of you guys that have this truck got some constructive thoughts about it? Is it raceable? What changes should be made to it if any if I do decide to run it away from the backyard? Since Im not familiar with Losi stuff (Im an AE homer what can I say) info would be much appreciated

It's a good truck, but don't expect it to be any stronger then your T3, though. The XXXT RTR is a raceable truck. All you really need to add is a stock motor, Deans connections, proper shock oil/springs and suitable tyres for your track. If you may, go down to your track and ask the local guys there what their setups are. They should help you out a lot.

One pointer, though. The XRS ESC is complete junk. Ask anyone who has owned one. The claimed 15t limit is false. 17t-19t motors are still too much load for the XRS.

Goodluck!

If you're running a stock 27T motor, though, it should be fine. That would be one of the first upgrades you might want to consider, however. Another upgrade to consider would be the turnbuckels. They bend fairly easily when landing wrong off a jump, or running into something.

All in all, it's a good truck, though. You'll like it.

Agreed here. Its a good truck for starting out.

Heck, a really good racer in CT was putting a spanking on the mod class with it with the only change being to a 19T motor. This was with Version one, not sure whats all on version II but should still handle the same.

Not sure about the XRS but the specs don't look good. the V3R speedo they had before worked well. If you need another speedo, drop me a msg as I have one cheap I can sell.
