After reading some of the rules in Cleveland talk threads, what are the rules on body/spoiler height? My Losi Alfa 156 has the spoiler higher than the roofline. Does it need to be trimmed all the way down to the two channels in the middle of the spoiler??

Doug.....from what I was told the Alfa wing needs to be trimed on the trailing edge to the top of the two "channels" and on the leading edge to the front of the two "channels" to make it ROAR legal. So depending on how you cut it out it might be too big for ROAR races or local track rules if they inforce ROAR rules.

Anybody run this body yet I have and some people said the body does not last long it breaks or rips with very little contact.....my body is dented in the back from a flip off the track but other then that its held up well.....any comments?

I have four weekends on the body. It has to be the best handling body I have had on the car! I like it over the Protoform 2.0 and the original Stratus. It has more steering and stability than both of the Protoform bodies. Mine has held up real well. It has a slight dent in the rear wing but other than that it is fine and has taken much more punishment than the 2.0. My 2.0 split up the front to the hood on the very first weekend out with it and has just fell apart over time. It seems to be made out of a stiffer plastic that does not give at all. I do feel the original Protoform Stratus held up the best so far but time will tell compared to the Alfa.

My Losi Alfa Body is holding up well. The wing is another story. Way to thin. The Reinforcing tape fell off in a week The wing was destroyed shortly after. Replaced it with a wing that had thicker material.

Anyone here get one and build it yet?

Yeah our LHS has had one for a week now. They aren't much different then a standard version, so I don't see how it would build different.

Ran my XXXS Graphite Plus lastnight. Not that much different then my full graphite regular XXXS. Did like the Front Spool that came with the car, works very well.

hows the handling on the new cars? do you notice a difference with the new arms and hubs?

KT Hobbies, any ideas when you will get more Losi Alpha bodies in? Also, any word on the PRP shock towers?


How much oil weight difference do you run front and rear o the shocks? on average? (say, 20 weight difference with rear being less).

Cain, shock towers are on the way. The bodies probably will not be in until next week sometime.

I put the new rear arms and hubs on my car this past weekend and I noticed that the rear of the car was more free than with the other parts.

Sorry, I am still trying to figure out the oil thing.

The GP comes with a front spool? Does it include a diff as well?

from what I understand the GP comes with a front diff but also includes some pads to lock it up and make it a spool. The PRP shock towers are nice, I noticed on Matt Francis' car last weekend he drilled holes on his front shock tower to raise his camber link, I just chuckled to myself because these towers already have a row higher than stock
