futureal-Thanks...it was great meeting you as well. CYA at the birds.

jkerr0043-What you are experiencing is that the belt probably has a little but thicker backing in some areas. So as it rotates and the backing is hitting the ilder pulley you are experiencing the "lumpy" feel in your belt. My XXX-4 feels the same way also.

caveman-Try gluing the outer front sidewall of your tires. This will help reduce the traction a lot. Also I prefer to run a bigger hole piston on carpet/rubber tire. I think it helps with the traction roll problem since it lets the car roll into the turn more.

AWOLsoldier-yea that is what I am kinda afraid of.

rcgary-Oh wow.....it was actually Michael Jackson...j/k!

KevinK-We are working on getting the belt out soon. I am hoping by snowbirds but I am not 100% sure. The BK bones may be awhile since we are still perfecting them.

Todd, you have any suggestions on setup for touring stock on foam for the snowbirds. I've never ran foam and none of the tracks up here run foam in stock, its all RUBBER. Any help would be great.

As far as I know (Correct me if I'm wrong Todd) The whole idea behind the bk bones was to eliminate the play between the pins and the grooves. By using bearings they create a smoother transition and less friction in the drive system. Remember when you step on the throttle, there is play on those pins and grooves and this has to be made up initally as the car accelerates, which will slow your start. With the new bones there is very little play, the bearings basically smooth everything out.

This is how I understand it. Should give better acceleration and cornering with longer life.

Todd- Could you post the setups you and the other team guy's ran at the Novak and Clevland races either here or on the Losi website. I am interested to see what you a running now that we are useing the softer tires then most of last years setups.

EddieO-Try this one it should be a perfect starting point for the Snowbirds. http://www.teamlosi.com/pictures/jpe...Snowbird03.jpg

Randman-The BK bones eliminate a lot of the friction between the dogbone pin and the outdrive which helps free up the car through the center of the turn. Also like wcoyote mentioned it allows the outdrives to last much longer since there is more surface contact between the bearing and the outdrive slot.

ChadK-i will get them up on the TL website soon. I ran the same setup at Cleveland and the Novak race.

MDawson-Sup....I am trying to convince RT to let me go to the Rain City Race....he is saying maybe BK instead.

J. Filipow-Peaches it was...very good guess black square!

I'll pay for your ticket and hotel todd........would love to have you up here for the rain city race along with Barry and BK. Debbie runs a first class facility, so I don't mind putting on some cash.
