Actually, I just had a great idea for a new forum. Vehicle FAQs! The first post in each thread can be a "running post" to keep all of the information, and be continuously updated by the creator. Everybody else can respond to the thread with any information they might have, and the first poster (the "keeper") can add the information to the first post.

Good idea!
I will start a FAQ complied from TT and other sources. Will post it once it starts to form. I will add a link to the FAQ from my signature in my posts.

Is there any chance I could mirror a copy of your FAQ on here? (Giving you full credit, of course...)

I am looking for content to put on here, I'd make a bunch myself but I just don't have the time to work on it...

The Faq can be found in my signature area - feel free to mirror the file.

The credit however should go to all the folks that want to see the car and its drivers do well.

If I mirrored it though, I would like to convert it to look like an rctech page (like the ones on the home page).

Guess we'll see... I might be able to keep the format you have and use an IFRAME to it to appear within the rctech page borders... hmm... (entering web development mode)

Thanks

Black Losi springs are 25lb. You could add them to your chart.

Thanks to everyone who helped before, especially Troy and Mark. I want to know if it would be beneficial to run the Trinity heatsink that MDawson has on the car. I run stock so it will cover up the vent holes. Should I still get it? Or will a narrow TC3 clip on heatsink from Team Associated do the same thing? Thanks guys.

Ty - No problem.

I ran the heatsink for the first time last sunday. It doesnt cover the whole vent hole. If you place it just right, it covers about 1/4 of each vent. I also run stock.

My only dislikes of the heatsink are thats it's blue ( no biggie ) and that it moves the motor out very slightly... Maybe not enough to notice, but it does move it out slightly...

MDawson:I'd like to comment about the outer hinge pin retaining set screws so that you may add to your excellent FAQ page.
I've found that if you remove that little wall of plastic at the bottom of the screw hole that you'll have very little trouble securing the hinge pin.A small drill bit works very well at removing the wall that protects the hinge pin.I know that Losi says this was intentional as to prevent the possiblity of gailing up the hinge pin but I've never seen this happen to the point where the pin was unusable.

I havent had a problem with striping out the castor block. I don't see what the problem is. I just went slow and took my time threading.... then slowly snuged it down untill i couldnt move the pin.

After realizing that the castor block could be stripped I've been doing that slow thing like TSR6, but as a double secure measure I've also been putting 3/32" e-clips on the ends of the hingepins.

Just snug it down, then wiggle the pin... tighten untill it doesnt move back and forth, then tighten it an extra 1/4 turn. That should keep it pretty snug and tight
