Default setup

Brian, thanks for your setup. I threw it on the car last night, but ran into one snag. With the rear shock tower up front and the tops of the shocks mounted in the middle hole, the spring perch on the shocks interferes with the Losi 4 degree spindle carriers if I try to mount the shock on the outside hole on the front arm. The carrier won't allow me to move the shock out far enough. To compensate, should I move the top of the shocks to the inside hole on the tower?

Vic,

any thoughts on doing a pro4 conversion? The car looks pretty good right out of the box, but its still mass produced graphite chassis. I am sure yours would be stiffer!!!

It kills me to see all these racers/bashers in the US spend all their $$ in HK and Japan for hop-up parts instead of from a US company!!!

Tell me who in America makes parts for my Barracuda R2 and i'll buy them. Until then i'm stuck buying Japanese parts since they're a Japanese company.

Yup-that is the problem-US machine shops are very expensive to get CNC time on.

YOu basically have to know someone whos got the machine and the time-but if he has the time-he probably isnt that good of a machine shop Or if he has the time now-he 'll probably get a lucrative job (not RC related) and cannot do them for you anymore (like my milled Tc3 chassis).

I don't see the point you're trying to make. I don't think any of us are being brand loyal it's just that the people who make the cars tend to also make the parts. If you want to go ahead and reverse engineer every part and then make your own, that's cool but if you cost more than the originals, forget it.
