EddieO-Yea the new wheel is going to be a black spoke...not sure why...I liked the black dish to be honest. They are saying they are coming out with Marble. May they will do some kind of wheel dots like the current TRC tires have. How are things up in the NW?

mwcet8k-.030 in the rear will be fine..you may need a .050 in the front.

Default Shock rebuilds

Hey Todd-is there a maintenance to the cartridges in the shocks to get the grit out of them (offroad)? Or do you always replace often with new innards?

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Ray my experience in replacing the inners is just replace the orings with associated type I think they just feel better. And always reuses the spacer between the orings as those should be nice a free.

my experience from running losi off road for two years

Hay Hodgimotoson, are you going to play with gas sedan at all? Since we have the gas sedan nats you might be able to come home for a bit and all. The black bet was well worth the wait. I thought I might play with asphalt a bit but everyone runs foam. Would I just go up with spring and oil?i have asked the rest, I thought I would ask the best....

ray-Just use losi o-rings

mcsquish-No Gas TC deals for me so I will not be there. Yea you can try going stiffer on springs and see how that works.

Eddie-Cool.....good luck with the new business.

Roborat-We were planning on going but at the last minute BK could'nt make it and either could Spashett.

Ran my XXX-S G+ for the first time. No body, just a "see how it runs" try. Wowzers! This thing handles great! And it's ballistic. A little too fast for the space I ran it in since I couldn't go full throttle. I was using my 16 turn and my 7 cell "trash" pack. I'm glad I didn't use my 12 turn. I may still go and try my very old B&R Bullet just so I can learn a little more.

It even went together great. Took my time to make sure everything was moving free like it should. Since I'm new to this TC thing, I'm really glad I made the choice of car I did. My local TC racers may have another person to reckon with on the track soon.

Thanks Todd for helping me out in this decision and your tips on what I needed to get me back in R/C again.

Paull
