How do you measure droop from chassis to floor?

measure the ride height, then lift the car up at the end your measuring and just as the tyres come off the ground measure again

subtract the 2 numbers and thats droop

So you would have to check your droop every run as your tires would change in size when they get worn? Seems like an inaccurate way to do it

Yeah pretty much. With rubber tires they don't wear to bad. With foams, depending on how where you start with tire size and how much you run them, you will have to consistantly monitor droop. I will say this though, just because you set it at a number on the droop gauge it doesn't take into account for your tire size.

I run rubber tires and still set my droop by subtracting the two numbers.

I just ordered my Losi Type R this weekend and was thinking of buying the SpeedPassion ESC. Now I am not a what ever is the hottest thing going this weekend type purchaser. I went to my track and was told I would be better off getting an LRP and was also told none of the TOP drivers for the Reedy Race ran the SP esc so can someone give me the good, bad or indifferent on this esc. Why you think it would be or would not be a good purchase. I will be running stock since I am a novice. Thanks in advance.

Hello

im writing because ive got a problem with drive shafts of MI-3
i know everybody says that the silver ones (u3020) are better than purple one, for me are just the same (broke as glass)and thats my only complain about the car.

im going to put the steel ones (U2151) but a guy told that i have to put a spacer.

anyone of you are using the steel drive shafts and how you tighten the hexs against the Hub ball bearing, cause i want to wear that ones but i dont know what kind of spacer do i have to use.

please help me in this issue

thanks
