Default losi rear hub's on tc3!!

hey guy's,

i know this is probably in the tc3 section but 270 odd pages is alot to read through, i noticed at a meeting at the weekend that some of the guy's were running losi hub carriers on the back! iwas wondering if you guy's run them and what you think of them???

ive got my first national race a week sunday and im a bit unsure of trying this but these guys say it really helps!!

hope you can help

thanks

I tried the Losi 0 hub carriers on my TC3 and wasn't that impressed. I think the only reason to run them (and if I'm wrong, someone please correct me) is that they allow you to run 1.5 of toe in (or perhaps 1?) for tight, high bite tracks where you need to free up the rear end of the car.

i think the reason losi hub-carriers are run is that is been found the AE ones can become warped and give innacurate toe-in. the losi ones are larger and wont change shape so easly. They fit straight on with no modifications at all. The only thing is that the outer hole on the tc3 hubs is the inner hole on the losi hubs with no spacer, so you cant shorten it by the hub. This Is How It Looks

I ran them on my car at 2 day carpet race in Stockton. I set them up with the same geometry as the stock ones and I tried both that weekend. The car was much free-er with the losis plus you get the roll center adjustment from the vertical ball mount.

I asked the question to Barry Baker at the LRP, he told me it's just because of the vertical ball stud, it gives more accurate tuning.
