1420 is correct..1350 is some Euro Wt I think that just passed.

Set up depends on rug or Asphalt.

Oh ok. My mistake.

When you ran front overdrive, how many runs on a set of tires for rubber + asphalt before you had to switch to maintain the same feel? or did you rotate fronts <-> backs? Same for rubber + carpet? Thanks.

Efra sign for 1350g with lipo 2s or life 2s or 5 cells nimh.
Lucas and myself are reaching about 1370g with a balanced car (20g added on recever side), ligth body and plastic lipo trail.
weigth on that car is not problem.

We are working on a new steering concept keeping the original geometry allowing more flex in the front, lowering the Front CG and saving about 30g

I have a type R comin any day now. I was planning on getting a Trinity/Epic IP5000 2S Lipo Battery. Is there any fitment issues with this? Is there a better choice as far as fitment goes whether i get the deans or low profile connectors? Thanks, Im relatively new to the on road scene

I have the Epic 5000mah battery and the only mod that I did was I shaved off the battery dimples (or whatever you wanna call them) that are at the bottom of the case. Basically you make the battery flat. Don't worry since the battery tray will protect that side of the battery anyways. With the 5000 you also want to have the Flying Fox layshaft so that the pulleys won't rub on the case. The layshaft is a nice upgrade and ti's not expensive at all considering it has the spur gear adapter all in one piece for $29 + shipping. If you use the 3600 mah pack you don't have to shave anything and it drops right in. You still want to get the layshaft though.
BTW, for those of you who may think that the lesser MAH batteries don't run as strong. The guy who tq'd and won the Halloween Classic in 17.5 Foam Sedan ran the 3600 Epic pack on this Corally phi all weekend long.

I noticed a few pics of the last few pages of various losi's with spec motors. I suggest all of you buy a DUO 1 or 2 and try it out. It is THE best spec motor there is. Skyrocket batteries has some Fantom motors I believe.


The point... simply the dirty. (always out-door)
If the trak is clean, no problems, but if the trak is dirty, and out-door befalls frequently especially during tests or first practic.................
You don't like apply cover anti dust, ok don't do it...... I prefer use it and rebuild my diff. only once at home at the end of the race

I just use 2 diffs in a rotation system. Once one is a little grindy the other goes in. Both get cleaned, rebuilt and run in at the same time to save me time and effort.
