I added 30, 32.5, and 35 wt Losi shocks oils to my cart as well.

Lastly, what kind of nut drivers will I need.

Thanks again John.
^ One last question John.... I promise.

Did you look in the Losi Type R forum? There is a guy selling a Type R for 235, and right now i am running a 112/47 gearing testing. I am going to change my spur to 108 so I can get bigger pinions in there since I will be running in the 13.5 class.

Are you running 112/47 with or without the flying fox layshaft?

Nut driver a 7mm for wheel nuts thats about it rest is all allen.

Yea to run lower than 118 spur you need Flying fox layshaft for sure..A must have item actually..Makes life sooo much easier than grinding down lr roll center block to clear motor to run larger spur gears/pinions.

I run PRS pinion gears and Kimbrogh Spurs.

I might as well go ahead and get the layshaft then, I've got a 7mm nut driver, and I've got some PRS pinions and kimbrough spurs in my cart. Thanks John.

Is a lightweight body worth the extra $4? You give up some durability I would imagine don't you?

Anything else you guys could think of? Thanks for all your help.

LW bodies are for pros at a big race who dont hit much of anythin-if anythin and are totally disposable after the race (usually to a kid or a dumpster diver)

Gotcha... I'm definitely gonna hit stuff so I'll stick with the regular type bodies. Thanks for the heads up.

I use to run: http://www.corallyusa.com/istar.asp?a=6&id=SRC2000!SRC.

It saved me a lot of front end parts. Mike Haynes showed me this. You have to make some cuts and drill some holes to make it work, but its worth it.
