Default Camber Ball Studs

The Losi XXXS setup sheet has a chrome and black camber ball stud option for the front and the rearę What are the part numbers for each and how does each change the handling of the car?

Thanks,
Bink

Todd- I know this ius the on-road forum, but I have a quick off-road question..... I have the RCcar issue with your XXXT tuning guide... does the same theory apply to the XXX-NT since they share the basic same suspension???

Default Camber links

Todd
front camber link is between 2 & 3 on a prp shock tower w/short ball
rear is 1a on an offset 0 deg hub.
I made a change during practice today and simply moved the shocks in one hole but I just noticed that I've mounted in the upper holes of the prp tower wich is above and between holes in a standard losi tower so now I'm between 1 & 2. this improved steering all around and I was able to dial in another 10% dual rate w/out the rear washing out everytime I hit my turn in. also Ive been getting a lot of wear on the insides of the tires so I actually went to 0 deg rear and 1/2 deg front camber (which was taking out 1 deg all around) and this evened the wear out. does that seem wierd for a stock mtr on asphalt?

Well I checked my shock shafts and I have them assembled right. I am attaching two pictures that show what Im talking about. In the first pic I have totally removed the droop screw so they are not limiting the shock travel. As you can see the hub is not hitting the 4mm mark. The second pic shows the total shock length. I guess my concerns are that as my foam tire dia get smaller I will need more travel so I can set my ride height to 3mm to 5mm.

Thanks

I dont understand what your saying?? Threads on the shock body has nothing to do with the total shock length.

Yeah but it has a big impact on your ride height.

True. But my concern is that as my tire dia gets smaller I have less adjustment. How far down do most people run theit foam tires??

I guess I could unscrew the shock end a few turns to get a longer shock lenght. I just wanted confirmation that my rear shock length was in the ballpark.

Your shock length seems about right, just make use of those threaded shocks! When I had a losi I never ran under ~55 mm.

RCman6,

Try connecting the lower part of the rear shock to the inner hole on the suspension arm. This will bring the suspension down a bit.

I have internal spacers inside my rear shocks to limit the down travel (primary droop adjustment). Did you install these?

My shock shafts are not screwed all the way into the ends. This is where I fine tune down travel (secondary droop adjustment). Can increase overall length.

I have no internal shock spacers in my shocks.

lozi-No setup change at all just put some forward throttle trim into the car and let it roll when you let off the throttle. This will help with the drag brake problem. The only negative you get from this is that you will have to hold the brakes on the start of a race.
Hi todd,

Had done that too, still no cure.
