Huh....I dont know then b/c all the 28mm tires that guys had before the birds were on black rims....but them might have gotten them from Cleveland. When I asked Chad from Trinity at snowbirds he said that they will only offer black rims....so whats that tell you. And he was also dumbfounded when we asked him abut marble tires....so that should have said something right there.....

Rich-I run it looser than you would think. I just make sure it does not skip under accelleration.

futureal-Thanks...cool pic. Can you email that to [email protected]?

EddieO-Those were actual black wheels we were running. It is something TRC had made for Cleveland. The material was suppose to be stiffer but it was the same. Also all 28mm wheels from TRC now have a different offset. Now you can run the TL hex and be wide enough. This is on the black and yellow wheel. On the 26mm and 30mm TRC yellow wheel there was less offset so you would run the AE hex to get your car to max width and also to help from not rubbing the shock ends.

Jared-As of right now it will just come with the standard width belt. We are hoping to have a running change of the narrower green belt in the near future....I am not sure on a date for that change.

As for the marble tires it is something we are still testing and I am not sure TRC is planning on coming out with them.

Todd,

Thank you for helping me out with the missing parts. I received them that same week and was able to race the car that weekend!

Question:
Which Reflex 12 setup did all the drivers end up using at the Birds? Did Smyka have a different setup for stock or did everyone have the same setup.. once again, thank you for the help!!

Default Off topic but....

i'm an original off-road Driver, who done some on-road of late.

I have always had the most fun racing truck for some reason, Since the BK2 has been out for awhile, any word on when I'll be able to buy the new losi truck ala MF2. Tax refund burning a hole in my pocket and I'm not interested in any other truck =)

If this is all some wierd top secret thing I understand, you've done a great job replying to people's posts.

Losi products are the best, keep up the great R & D, and excellence in the products you put out.

What up T, can you explain why I get nightmares about getting sideways in the back of mini vans?

Mike M, I emailed you at your hotmail account.

Ortiz-I am not sure where everyone ended up. It kind of seemed like every one was spread out on setups. I am not sure where Smyka ended up..sorry.

mcmoney-Sup.

TCR-I do not know what you are talking about

EJ-Yea she had a little push in her and some diffing problems on corner exit....next time we are going with the Astro Van to further our testing.

Todd: I will continue to loosen the black belt it and see what happens.

Are you guys planning to come out with a graphite front shock tower that has the optional holes in it anytime soon?

For those of us without steady hands and drill presses, you end up with a less than "exact" hole on both sides.

Todd:

If you don't flip the bellcranks when moving them forward on the chassis, do you have to do anything with the steering ball to move it back more in line with the servo? Would it make any sense to flip the "L" peice to move it more in alignment with the servo?

Perhaps I have just mis-read something.

RichO-I don't think we will be coming out with that tower. As for the draglink ballstud position...you can just move you servo forward. I have my servo moved about .120" further forward in my car.

Todd: What method do you use for measuring droop when your using your shocks to set it? Do you use a ride height guage or some other technique?
