I know you guys are always looking for how BL setups are mounted up. I just mounted up a Speed Passion GT speedo with 10.5. I did dremel the left rear arm mount to fit larger pinions with a 118 spur. I can fit up to a 52 tooth with no issues. I could have just used an adapter and a smaller spur, but I wanted to keep using Losi spurs.

Here's the pic... (need to get a longer sensor wire, the stock one was too short)

JR links are the front camber link "arm" system the car comes with. For more steering try using a standard camber link setup.

Nowhere.

I haven't run since Snowbirds. That's why I'm going to 360 this weekend.

I also had the same problem and it came down to the thrust race, to be honest the thrust race needs improving, but over here in the Uk friends of mine have fitted the Xray thrust race without anymore problems i will be using an Xray thrust race in mine when it goes wrong again.

I'll agree that the thrust bearings that come with the stock diffs aren't the greatest. They work when they're brand new, but don't last very long.

I switched to a thrust bearing that McMaster-Carr sells. It's all stainless and a very high quality constructed thrust bearing. You do pay for it too, but it's worth it. The part number on www.mcmaster.com is 7806K53. You won't be disappointed.
