PaulP:
Go to TeamLosi and you will find a downloadable users manual and a part list sheet. You can print it out or just use it as reference. There are many setup sheets including carpet setups for you to look at in their site. Also if you go to Trinity you can find the entire Matt Francis line for the XXX-S.

Hope this helps

Hmmm.... I find that if I run the battery forward it understeers like mad, if they are to the rear I get a more neutral feel. Running blue springs all round with 50wt oil. Any ideas or is it just my driving style? I used to run my TC3 the same and I seem to remember from my rallying days that more forward weight meant understeer.
Someone tell me why
Later,
Pete.

Pete, my guess is with the battery forward we already have the weight on the front of the car. When we put the battery in the back the weight transfers towards the front thus giving you the feeling of more steering when off power or braking.

I haven't tried it on the track yet but that is my guess. Of course, all other things will have to be the same and the only thing you change is the position of the batteries.

sigearhead, in the setup you posted you said both the front and rear arms are spaced forward. does this mean the wheelbase is the same as stock, if so what is the reason for doing it.

Thanks for all the info on battery placement, I'll have to do some testing.

ausracer: moving the arms forward in the front adds stability while moving the rears to the front gives you more forward grip and you get more steering going into the turns off power. Having the arms forward just gives you better steering all the way around from my experience and the car just seems more planted and carries lots of cornerspeed.
You can just run the arms spaced standard also, that setup will work great either way.

Priority is 4.30 because I use delivery confirmation.

Unfortunately, our shopping cart is not smart enough to handle that kind of shipping so I manually make the adjustment when your c/c is processed. We do not process your c/c until your order is ready to ship.

Or you could just call me with the order as well.

Default Spring rates?

What is the spring rate for the Trinity Purple Congo and Blue springs that are used in the foam carpet set-ups?

//I have collected spring tables for HPI , Associated, Xray, Losi but sadly can't find a table for Trinity, and because I can't buy here Trinity springs I must find some similar HPI or Xray springs//

Thumbs up

ttr-Blue-30lb, Purple-35lb, and Yellow-40lb.

Ray-I would try going to 60 pistons in the front with 50wt. I remember that being a huge change on the cars last year at Cleveland. It prevented the car from dumping over the front. To help your car on the exit try moving your rear arms and front arms all the way forward. This will help the forward drive issue that you are having.

Did most of you guys change to the XXX-S from the Street Weapon? If you ran a different brand what made you decide to try the XXX-S? I am just starting in touring (I am an avid off-road racer) and got a sweet deal on a pair of IWC Street Weapons, but I noticed that everyone seems to have jumped ship on that car. Is the new one really that much better? As a touring noob, would I really notice it, or should I learn with the Street Weapon and move up later on? Thanks.
