LouisB - Sounds good! keep my posted... another thing to try would be something along the line of 50wt in the front and 40 in the rear

REAR TOE THINGY ?

i have a g+ with original xxx-s rear arms ( no offset holes) & i`m using 1 degree carriers ( left on right-right on left etc) I have equal toe on both sides of car. Now i do remember having different toe with the stock graphite arms ( 1 degree difference)

At least someone on here has good rear toe I was thinking you can probably convert the rear hubs to have adjustable rear toe(A few people have done this with the TC3) using the front Losi 0 degree spindles/carriers and original Losi Rear arms. I'm not quite sure if the arms will work with the spindles and I will need to find a spot to mount the ball stud near the bulkhead but I still want to look into it as that will solve all of changing out rear hubs for differant toe-in options and the incorrectness of rear-toe on some cars. Just some more RC that has gone to my head.

Thumbs up rear toe

I only changed to the non graphite rear arms cos i broke a graphite arm and at that time could only get non offset arms to continue the days racing. Maybe i got lucky or maybe Losi has a slight misalignment problem with some tooling used on the graphite rear arms

I've run out of 50 so I'll stick with 40 for now. Did you stand up or lay down your shock with this set-up?

Is the P2k a good enough motor for racing? I already have a p2k2 and it works great, how does the p2k perform compared to the p2k2? BTW i will use this in a xxx-s graphite.

The P2K has more torque and is better suited to short tracks. For most tracks the P2K2 is better.

You should look on ebay, they have some great deals on stuff. Or look on the Buy/Sell/Trade forum on this site. That is the best way to find used cars, or new cars.

The monster stock is faster than a p2k,you have to gear them lower and run a stiffer spring(trinty red springs and 4499 brushes)use this set up on a small track,the stiffer springs give the motor more torque, The place where I race at has 2 on road tracks 1 is small and one is a high banked oval,On the small track the monster stock is 3/10s a lap faster than any of my p2k2s(tuned on a robotronics dnyo),at 12 sec. a lap you end up about 8 sec.faster for the race,the difference between the A & B mains.If your p2k is faster than your monster your not gearing it right.What I have found with the monster stock is on a small track I gear it 3 teeth lower than I do a p2k2,on a large track 2 teeth lower.So to all you p2k2 fans when somebody flys by you down the straights and their using a monster stock dont mutter cheater,they are using a better motor than you are.

tufferwilde, I started with the red/40 set-up because we were racing at a parking lot that we don't use very much. OMG it handled like a bag of spuds! It's been warmer than usual for the past few days and this brought the grip level up. It was oversteering like crazy and I couldn't get it round the track without spinning out. I changed to blue front springs and purples in the rear, still with the 40wt oil. It reacted quickly and was very easy to drive.

I qualified 4th in the A but before the final I dialed in some toe-out and changed the set-up on my GT7.
I managed to complete the entire race with no mistakes and got 3rd place, I could have won but my motor/battery combo wasn't up to the standard of some of the other guys. I couldn't gear any higher without dumping my 2400s.

Bring on the 3300s! (They become legal on April 1st in the UK but I'll try and get some for my birthday in mid May.

On the 3300s I dont know if anyone else has had problems with the sanyo's but I bought 2(good packs) and they seem to have gone flat real fast(about 6 charges)The GPs I bought seem to be still strong,I use a good charger,and I charge them at 5 amps.From my own experience I'll stick to the GP cells on the 3300s untill I find out if I did something wrong or is their a problem with the first batch of 3300 sanyos.

I've heard similar stories, I was thinking of getting some Pro-Match GPs.
