quick question-
i keep eiter loosing or snapping the pins in the front axles. is there any better way to fix this or just keep rebuilding them and covering them with heat shrink? ive snapped 2 and lost one this week alone and its getting to be a pain in the butt to have to keep rebuilding them.

Weight it all out and get in balanced and than see if you really need it.

Managed to get my hands on a set of scales and balancing pins.... You're right... by the time its properly balanced side-side and front-rear, i'm only 5g over... with rubber tyres and IP3800 LiPo, Losi ESC...

My foam car is the same way, with KO reciever, and the Losi speedo, I have 42g on the reciever side and the car is pretty balenced side to side and is only about 4g over with the plastic tray.

So, does it fit in the Type-R with no modifications to the car?

metalracer2--> Its just a pair of scales borrowed from a friend that is in the industry. They make precision weighing scales with adjustable heights. Nice to use, but really expensive. I just tried it again tonight with the normal 2kg digital scales and balancing pins, and it works just as well!

I just realized there were holes for that last week, I checked both my cars, the foam one was forward biased, and the rubber tire was rear biased because I have the sphere mounted mid car, not up front like the LPF. I am curious to see how much weight it takes to affect the car front to back.
