i tried high roll center in mod and didnt like it when back to the low center and its alot better but my stock and 19t car felt really good with the high roll center

I ran Todd's set up with my batteries to the rear. The car felt a bit more stable with them in the rear. The batteries in the front wasn't a bad feel. If the track had more bite I probably would have left them there.

I doubt it unless the arms allow the ballstud to be placed on the end of it facing verticle as apposed to horizontal. Steering system on this car is different from the last one.

Thumbs up

FWIW,

Stormer Hobbies just got in the most current updated front and rear arms for the Type R. I'm sure other places are getting them in, but if you are looking for them...

Front: LOSA1217 $5.95 pr
Rear: LOSA2223 $5.95 pr

They also have a deal today for a free Cobalt modified motor when you purchase a JRXS-R. Nice!

Is there a part number for just the ball end pieces of the sway bar setup?

That would be the plastic pieces that screw onto the tie rods.

From Gil's published comments about Team Losi and Horizon, probably nothing will change as it is now. It sounds like they have been running the company the way they wanted for the last 7 years, and Gil didn't seem to be able to do what he wanted anyway. I'm guessing Hodge and Drake have been doing things their way for a while, and will continue to design and build great cars as they always have. Everyone there was mentored by Gil, so I highly doubt anything will be different from today's plans at Losi.

What IS exciting, though, is the future of Kyosho in the U.S.


I wouldn't go selling all of your Losi cars because Gil has shifted jobs. Things haven't been the same there since Horizon took over, and people don't seem to be complaining about the Mini-T, Micro-T and all of the other RTR kits they are selling.
