I have never really tried them but TIR racing makes titianium cvds and axles for I think around 30$ a pair. They are light and really strong you should thik about buying some. They are distributed through Shumacher.

Default The car ran awesome

I ran yesterday with my Demon car and it was kicking ass. I purposely ran an MVP motor to get some idea of what it will run like. Practice for the On-Road Nats. I was amazed at the amount of power difference there is between the Monster and the MVP. The monster motor has so much more power than the mvp. I won the race becuase the car ran like a dream but I had no power. I am trying to get some of the guys to practice with the MVPs.

The Demon car ran great this was my set up.
One way
F+0
50w
rear shock tower using body mount holes
gold spring
outside hole on new front arm
no sway bar front
droop 6
losi steering nuckles
4 degree caster

rear sway bar
gold springs
40w
3+0+0
droop 4
losi hubs outside hole 0 degree toe in
out most hole on shock tower
short wheel base

This set up has a lot of steering and really is fast

I have been using the nitro rack b/c it is a lot easier to maintain(don't have to clean it out) and also it seemed to calm the steering down and not be so aggressive entering the turns. It helped smooth out my driving.
Don't forget if you guys use the nitro rack. To get full steering throw you must grind away some material from the rack swing arms.

You still tell me what nat you are practicing for.

And Rangulo what does the losi steering knuckles and rear hubs do?

the rear hubs you can get them in different degrees. so another words if you run assoc 3 deg toed in the rear and you put a half deg losi hubs backwards, you will run 2.5 deg per side or if you run them the right way then you will run 3.5 deg on each side. i am pretty sure you can get them up to 2 deg, but dont quote me.

i run the ntc3 swing rack. it is just like stephen said it is alot more smoother to drive. it is not as aggressive as the regular rack and it is low maintanence.

It allows you to change the roll center because the ball studs are mounted vertically.

What/How does the roll center adjust on your car?


I never really found out or researched it b/c I have always had a TC3 and it doesn't have that adjustment w/stock rear hubs. When I tried to look into it and read about it I couldn't find anything on rollcenter adjusting.

Actually you can adjust the roll center on the stock TC3 by just moving the camber links up or down.

Thanks, it doesn't really say anything in the AE book.

How does this adjust the car, handling wise?

With the losi hubs the ball studs are mounted vertically so you can put spacers under them and therefore adjust the roll center more than you can with the stock hubs.
