Doesn't the gp version of the xxxs come with a spool? I know AJ had one that looked like a losi part.

It comes with material so that you can make one of the diff's into a spool. It is not like the piece from IRS that is for the TC3

Kraig,-I sent you an e-mail, but would like to know as soon as possible if youve got Losi 0.28 shock shafts in stock? On the first pack on the G Plus I bought from you I popped a board head on and broke a shock shaft in two!! First bent or broken shock shaft I have ever had indoors in 4 years!! Wow-pretty much ended the day of testing the Losi right "now"!!! Nothing else touched, damaged bent or anything-just the shock shaft!! Weird!!!

Kraig,
I'm looking for the following:
- Losi standard rear hubs, graphite
- IRS blue aluminum lowered pod plates for the 12L3

Please let me know if you carry these. Thanks.

Ray, did you get my email? If not here is what it said. I am out of the .28 shock shafts. They should be in this week. What happened to you is really weird. I personally have not seen or heard of anything like that.

Coolrcdad, I have one pair of the hubs left and they are yours if you want them. On the IRS pieces I do not stock them, but I can order them. I will check on pricing on Monday and let you know.

Not to clutter your thread.. but I broke my front shock shaft on my G+ as well... sent it back to Losi... Hope they send me a new one and I have broke 3 shock eyelets. Curious how that part of my car takes such impact.

One of the local racers here broke two shock shafts from a G+ kit a couple weeks ago. Looks like there was a bad batch.

Add my buddy who has broken two shock eyelets as well. And hes one of our fastest drivers!!! Man-old Losi-no shock issues, new G+, all kinds of shock issues. For sure the new shock eyelets plastic is harder/more brittle.

wow, that surprises me! Now that I think about it I have only seen it once. We were racing off road trucks on carpet and it was a pretty spectacular wreck!

Oh great, you guys are scaring me with this shock shaft problem. Guess I better keep my car on the shelf.

I have finalized the Schumacher Mission page. There you will find a listing of parts for the car. If I missed something let me know. I have started a list already and I would like to compare notes.

We still have some SMC G.P. 3300's in stock. All of our packs have voltage ratings over 1.145 at 30 amps. SMC battery bars are back in stock as well.

The Lunsford Quick Tune Shock Mounts for the XXX-S are back in stock as well. This makes it really easy to move your shocks around on the shock tower. No need to disassemble the entire assembly. We also have them for the TC3.

The Losi XXX-S Graphite Plus kits are back in stock.

Team Losi's Alfa body is back in stock.

TRC black mesh foam tires are on sale.

TRC Plaid's and Purples are back in stock. These are mounted on the yellow dish wheel.

Good to hear that others are having issues with the front shock shafts !!! Both of the kit supplied shafts are now in the garbage... they both snapped at the top thread on the shaft... was it in a hard hit? Yes, the left one was, but on the right one - that was the only thing broken... a shock shaft?? hmmmm... something isn't quite right here!
