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.

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.

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.
