has any tried the matt franis graphie front bumper brace? I heard it breaks the front diff cover. If you hit something hard enough is this true?

Noticed most of the Losi drivers do not run the stock Fear body.Is there a big difference in aerodynamics that even a intermediate club racer would notice? Not legal?

Losi drivers do not use the Fear Body because it is illegal, not four doors. Only you would be able to tell if you can feel a difference in the car with different bodies.

Thanks. Forgot about the 4 door rule. I read somewhere where I heard it was topheavy.

Default Stock body

The local track where I can race doesn't run by any set of rules. So I don't think that the stock body will be an issue. I do plan on racing at some track where it may be. What body would you guys recommend for use on the XXX-S.

are there any aftermarket springs that will fit the stock xxx-s shocks? what about the spring set (9 different rates, i think) for the TC3?

I just realized that my setup wheels from my Tamiya & HPI cars won't fit. Who makes some good ones for a standard drive shaft?

Trinity Congos will fit, but they are 30+ lb springs.

productnine: I run a '98 Accord Coupe body on my cars for club racing, and a Yokomo/Andys Stratus for real events.

You can try TC3 hexes. It brings the width out to 200mm also.
