My losi car would pick up the rear tires on corners when I was running foam on carpet. The only thing that I could come up with in terms of a fix was to run more rear droop in the car. I compared setup sheets on their website and noticed they all had more droop in the car than I did.

When you say more droop.....do you mean the screws wound down more (i'm using a yokomo sd so droop screws are through wishbones down to chassis) so there's less upward shock movement ??

More droop=more space between the shock spring and the shock collar when you hold the car up in the air and the suspension must be at full extension.

Mike...good job this weekend. Your 12th scale was amazing and I thought the TC could have won...your classy move in the A2 may have cost you a chance....based on the crowd around me, you did not need to wait. Then again you race with these guys so you probably knew what was in your best interest. I know that I have joked about asking stupid questions but here is a real one.

Will charging your batteries while in the chassis cause the chassis to tweak or warp? we are running the same chassis but mine is absolutley awful now. I do sometimes charge the batteries while in the car and was thinking it may be too warm. Any comments?

Eric

Default Thanks Guys.....

I am back.. The race went well. If you have any questions that i might have missed please repost them here... I will get to them ASAP.......



WVRACER . Not sure about the triple crown results. I only went to 3 races and cleveland was bad for me in 1/12th scale. Not sure if anyone is even keeping up with this still...



Joneser.. Thanks for the body man.. Wish i could have put that thing in the winners circle.. As for the stopping in the 2nd A-main. I think i did cost myself a chance. But i felt i should wait ... In the end i guess everything worked out. As for charging batt's in the car. I just peak mine in there never really charge.. I gues this could cause alittle flexing. But i doubt that would do it.. I know after a few months of racing in really hot conditions, Right where the motor is tends to get bent so i usually put a new chassis on a month or so before a big race.....

Mike
