I bought it at a local store, was around $70. It comes with screws for everything except the belt cover. All screws use a 2mm hex.

Jeff, doesn't that make you 2 oz. under weight?

If so, you might be interested in something that KT Hobbies (I think) is producing: a steel belt cover for the bottom of the chassis. It will add some weight, at the lowest part of the car, dead center down the chassis.

hey kraig,

Hello all. I finally got to race my XXXS for the first time and I am impresed. Compared to my TC3 I picked up about .2 to .4 of a second faster even with out the yellow belt, rear offset hubs and arms. My buddy has the whole works on his car (Basically a G+ with out the chassis mods) and he destroyed the track record held by a TC3 by a lap and a couple of seconds. All I have to say is that I like this car! Now all I need is a driver in a can and I will be set.

Shane, yep, 2 ounces light! lol, I've never had a car this light (never had a car with $70 screws either). I was planning on puting all my weights inside the tunnel, just above the cover... but a steel cover would be pretty trick. Sounds like it's not a production part yet, but Kraig, if you're coming to the ROAR Nats, and possibly have some done by them, I'd be very very interested in getting one.

I noticed that many of the pros have white ball-ends on their Losi XXXS's. Does anyone know what brand they are? They are not RPM because they look too small.

Default Matt Francis Motor Heatsink

Does anyone have a picture of one of these? I'm wanting to get a motor heatsink. The dynamite one looks good, but I am curious to find out if the Trinty MF one is bigger.

Motor heatsinks are the biggest waste of time and money IMHO..... just take a little more effort in finding the right gearing/tuning for your motor and it will run cooler.....

Klear - They are losi ballcups, but at this point, only the team can get them as far as i know.

KlearKnight - TSR6 is correct - the white ball cups are actually Losi stock, you cannot purchase them...


Kraig - you have mail!!

Shane, I know. We have to find the right thickness because right now they sit below the chassis. At least mine does.

We were able to get some Losi rear hubs back in stock. We are getting more arms later on this week. You guys are paying attention to when items are coming back in.
