Last year at the triple crown races I watched the factory drivers run their cars through tech and everyone of them came in almost exactly at legal weight. Losi guys were all running factory chassis' except Kinwald. How do you guys do that? My xxxs is a fat pig.

Graphite, aluminum, and titanium components result weight reduction.

Did you know that alot of dremel tools are used in brain surgery as a means to cut through the skull to gain access to the brain and spine?

Watch out! Anyone with the right dremel tools might try to perform brain surgery on you!

I think the cutting tools used in brain sugery are powered by compress air.

mtc30d-You know...I think I used...the profile that had the lowest drive frequency.

JimMcClure-Aluminum screws, titanium hinge pins, no battery strap(tape your batteries in), no rear bumper(just use a small piece of lexan on the bottom to cover the pulley), titanium shock mounts, and thats about it.

Adrian-Got Rain??

tc3stocker-Check out my Socal Raceway thread on www.teamlosi.com.

Todd: I messed around with that underdrive setup at Fernando's a few weeks back. I found it a little stuck in the corners and pushing on the big sweepers. We did sugar water the track in the morning, but it was humid and not many people running. I made a few changes that perhaps may be of interest:

Front Shock: 4
Rear Shock: 3
Front Camber link: 3

It works very good in the wacky dog leg at the end of a sweeper and seems really balanced through-out.

I am going to mess around with the droop and the camber link positions. I was using the 4 hole in the front and 6 hole in the rear with the non-overdrive setup with 50Wt oil in the front.
