Thanks Mr. Losi. So does yours bend down toward the front of the chassis away from the posts? Any chance you could shoot me a pick of yours or give me an idea what size screws you used?

XXX-S owners,
Anyone run the car on carpet with foams? Does it need any modification parts or is the car pretty good out of the box? How is it compared to a TC3? Thanks everyone.

TY - All you need to do is stiffen it up. Check ou the losi site and start with the carpet setup. It's pretty good. as compared to the TC3..let's just say you will be very impressed.

Ty - The car is absolutely fantastic on carpet. No problems in keeping up with the TC3's. Check out my earlier posts for a good stock sedan set up with foams.

A little update on the Aluminum CVDs.

If you break the front suspension, you WILL tear up the Aluminum dogbone.

The place where it breaks is where the pin goes through the bone and the axle. I hit a board today and broke a steering hub and this is when the cvd bone got messed up.

Now, granted, I shouldn't of hit the board but things happen.

BTW, this is the first time I have broken any pieces on the car.

I don't know about carpet, but on asphault...... my TC3 is faster then my XXX-S.........

I ran the xxx-s in a race today........ it was slow even geared the same as my TC3...........

I was able to run faster lap times with my TC3, then with the XXX-S......

I am not saying that the XXX-s was slow, I was right with the front 2 guys all thru the race..........
