Bryan,

The high or low roll center blocks and the angle of your inside pivot pins affects what thickness of spacer you use for the inside limiters. So Todd cannot respond with one pat answer.

If you have a Dremel tool with a thin cutting disk, you can cut the "O" shaped plastic spacers into a "C" shape. That way, you can easily place them on and off the shafts without having to take the piston off of the shock. That saves lots of time which Todd explained to me many posts ago.

Look at the Losi site for a setup close to yours for some hints on what spacers to use. Earlier, James Nguyen suggested .050/.060 as a starting point.

Regarding that wheelie... I'd have to say Mr. Gray (the guy pulling the wheelie) was probably outraged to see me get taken out in front of him and by force of will alone he caused his car to accellerate harder than before and pull that TC wheelie!

So, I guess what needs to be done for more TC wheelies is to have me go to more races and get taken out in the main?

We'll have to work on this theory some more...

Sundog1: We recommend starting out with a final drive ratio of 7.3:1 in touring cars... this will equate to a 32/128 gearing in the XXX-S

If you're running low roll center blocks front and rear, use the thinnest shock spacer Losi makes for the front. I can't remember the exact size, but if you buy the shock spacer set (LOS5050) just use the thinnest spacer in that set. This should give you exactly 3 mm of droop.

For the rear, don't use any spacers. I had to unscrew the shock end about one turn to get 5 mm of droop.

Your shock position may affect this slightly, but on my car I have exactly 3 mm front, 5 mm rear with it setup like this.

I appreciate it. I've got enough spare parts to rebuild the front end and check one more time before I send it back. Maybe I just shouldn't try to rebuild when the kids are home and the wife isn't!

Hey Todd,

Just wondering what bodies you were going to run at paved nationals in portland? I'm guessing a mazda 6 and a losi alfa?

I'm not todd obviously but I can say I've had no problem with the black belt and every other tooth cut off. Very slight skipping uder braking with a spool but you get that with any belt on this car.
