Default XXXS Graphite

Kraig,

I am getting desperate!!! I am wondering if you think you will get enough XXXS Graphite kits your first shipment to be able to get me one in early November? If yes, I'll put in an advanced order. It is less than a month for the US Indoor Champs and I just cant get the balance right for me on this car. Maybe the Graphite kit will be the way to go with the new rear arms. If yes, I'll sell mine cheap and wait for the Graphite kit. I can always run 12th scale only for two or three weeks!!!

Ray

Ray, I still have some that are not spoken for. I don't know how Horizon is going to do the release on this car. I know their fast serve stores will get them before non fast serve stores, which we are apart of but they usually only get 1. The whole process is a long story. I still haven't gotten an official release date as of yet.

I do know that I have some conversion kits coming. It should be interesting to see if they will have the new chassis, rear shock tower, and arms. I reallly don't expect the new rear hubs with the different off set though.

Hope this helps.

It's been a long time since I was on this thread, rather than go searching through all the posts could someone please tell me what the major differences are between the new XXX-S graphite plus and the standard kit (apart from one is graphite).
I have heard that the chassis is slightly different and there are some new rear arms. If this is the case what is the purpose?

Thanks,
Yorkie

Yorkie here is what Todd Hodge posted about the graphite plus car:futureal-I just want to clarify some of your details on the graphite car kit.

-chassis-The car uses the same chassis. We are changing the way it is milled out. Right now it is about 1/2 oz lighter than the original lightened chassis.

-Rear arms and hubs-The arms have a another hinge pin hole located .150" in from the outside hole. Then we have new hubs that are offset .150" wider. This is the rear end we ran on carpet with foam tires and worked well. We have also found it works well on apsphalt and rubber tires.

caster blocks-Yes they will work on the existing front arms.

Here are a few other details on the graphite XXX-S
-Full graphite components
-New stiffer foam bumpers
-New stiffer plastic bumpers for the front and rear. This helps relieve the flexing problems with the droop screws.
-Ball bearing steering
-New front bumper brace that does not affect the front sway bar.
-Team Losi 24mm mesh wheels
-New belt which is yellow
-New rear shock tower. This shock tower is the same as the exisiting shock tower. The only change is that is has 3 more optional lowered holes for the camber link.
-High and low roll center blocks.
-Aluminum CVD's with aluminum 8/32 low profile wheel nuts
-Lunsford Titanium Turnbuckles
-Team Losi Alfa Romeo Body with high downforce wing. This body/wing is awesome!!

ChadK: damn dude you're quick. We must have been thinking the same thing at the same time you just beat me to it a little quicker. That was weird.

P.S

Does it come with a bodyshell?

If so which one? I am kind of fond of the Stratusfear.

Default question on mid front roll center

Hi,

This is a newbie question, but I noticed in several of the XXX-S setup sheets on Losi's site that people are using the mid front roll center. My question is regarding the .070 spacer that is used. Is there a part number for this spacer?

Thanks for your help,

I do not believe there are any "special" washers made for this purpose. Most of us use whatever we can find. You can use the washers that are used for spacing ball studs or armature shims work well too.

Some of the shims that come with the Associated shock kit happen to be .070 and should be hard enough plastic to tighten.
