yeah, a couple of the guys at my track have the same problem and they have told me to just deal with it, they can't get rid of it either. I don't believe it affects performance, it's just annoying...

Has anyone heard any whispers about whether Losi are going to bring out a "Spashett Edition" or something similar of the XXX-S?

I'm thinking full Graphite parts, and threaded shocks of the right length in the kit.

what different oil/piston setups are you guys getting to work? mainly looking for carpet but anything works.
i mainly run 50/50 w/ 56 pistons f+r. or 50/50 56 front 55 rear piston. 40/40 56/55 f/r works as well , all of these are rubber tires on carpet

Reedy Race Set Up

Front
56 piston
60 wt oil
purple sping
3mm droop
#3 hole on tower
#3 camber link position
1/2 degree of camber
4.5mm ride height
arms middle
0 kick up
4 degree caster blocks

Rear
56 piston
60wt oil
purple spring
5mm of droop
#3 hole on tower
#1 camber link position
A hole on hub
inside hole on arm
titanium ball stud used
1/2 degree of camber
4.5mm ride height
1/2 degree toe in blocks on the correct way (2.5 rear toe in)
arms middle
0 anti squat
batteries foward

Matt started with 80wt oil all the way around and said that he was going to go down to 60wt so I put the 60 wt in my car. He also used steel out drives in the front with the diff a little tighter than the rear. He ran his gearing at 31/128. He also ran his front arms slightly foward with one regular spacer and a .030 in the rear of the arm and one .030 spacer in the front.

I spoke to Matt today and he stayed with the 80wt oil.

Default Editable Losi XXX-S Forms

On my clubs website which im the webmaster of, I have created pdf forms with editable text areas so that you could type out your setups and print them out with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Heres the kewl part, if you have the full version Adobe Acrobat, you can not only print them out but save them as well. Give it a try and tell me what you think of it, also be sure to check out our club while you are at the site. Heres the link:
