Great to see you here Todd, it was nice meeting you this weekend.

Hi Todd. All of us Losi guys are lucky to have you on here to help us all out.

One question for you, (for now) I know this thread is in the onroad section but what the hell. The spur gear pulley on my XXX4 G+ seems to be a touch out of round. What I'm running into is inconsistant belt tension. I pulled the belt off and spun the spur gear and it does looke like the pulley is out of round a little. So when I set the belt tension, if it's on the high side, it ends up way too loose and if I set it when it's on the low side its way to tight. Is this something you've seen or did I just get a freak one with the car that needs to be replaced?

Thanks for your time and good luck tomorrow in the mains tomorrow.

Hi, Todd.
I run rubber tyre on carpet(take off CS27), sometimes when grip gets so high, we keep traction-roll.I'm running black springs front, purple springs at the back,60w oil and#56 pistons allround,#3 on shock tower, second stiffest front sway-bar,1.5 camber.I also try use front camber hole above#2#3. What can I do to reduce traction-roll.Some people told me to run more camber like2.5 or use smaller hole pistions like #57 or set the shocks much stiffer to kill some grip. Also will harder inserts or fuller inserts helps. I got a lot of suggestions but don't know which one is correct,I need your professional opinion.Thanks.

Those headphones make you look like your DJing at the club bro LOL

ALTHOUGH, while I do give Todd a bit of a hard time, I have to say without his continuing help, I would not have made the A in brushless this weekend. Thanks Todd, you're a class act and one of the best guys in the business. I was proud to run a Losi this weekend.

Jon Kerr 01-11-2004 10:11 PM

Um yeeeaaahh. We're going to have to ask you to go ahead and... move your pits into the storage closet. UM K? Thanks.

:lol: :lol:

RCGaryK 01-11-2004 10:24 PM

You've...you've...you've....you've got my Transmitter. OR

My pit's used to be next to the window where I could see the squirrels, and they were married.....

Todd - Thanks for the help at Trackside. Have a safe trip home.

jkerr - Funny thing is, at this weekend's Novak USTC race, I think we were close to needing to use the closets. One of the guys ended up pitting on a card table in the upstairs pits.

Gary - Ditto on the "Proud to run a Losi" comment, being the only Losi in the stock rubber A main.

You, you, you see the M8 didn't glitch as much and, and they switched to the KO and, and it glitches and I just kept my M8 and if they take it away I'm going to burn the track down. :lol:
