Hodge, why don't you take the body off that car and then take a picture? Lets see a sneak peak of the chassis that is under that body.

Jared....I think thats Ron Rosetti's(sp) car and its more then likely a Mugen under "THAT" body. But I know where you are going with that

OK, 12 hours and its all built and set up for the most part.
From what ive seen so far....

Likes - Smooooooth, a ton of feel, it tells you exactly what your doing - Fit and finish - A great instruction manual and good quality made this a fun and easy to follow build.

Dislikes - Threading every hole on the graphite chassis, its not really losis fault but I still hated every second of it, dident have the proper wrench for the bigger screws so the L wrench tore my fingers up pretty bad. - Losi Hubs, i have 3 sets of tires, none of them work on this car, why god why? Is there an adapter i can get?

Im in love with it so far, definatly worth the extra money for the G+ kit, exteamly light and stiff

Yes if you look back a page there is a discusion about this. I dont know why losi did that. the original kit came with both sizes and you can buy that part for $5 at your local hobby shop. (part #los-3260) unless you want some better quality ones.

Does anyone have the Spool assembly instructions in pdf, jpg, or anything else? Lost mine and I wanna make sure I do it right...

I think the way to do it was to remove the diff balls(and lube), add the sandpaper rings facind inward, and finally put the diff together like normal... right?

Hey guys, I just ordered a xxx-s G+ kit and should have it here in a day or so. I wanted to run somthing diffrent than most folks at the track. I will be running on carpet and used the set-up sheets on the losi site as a guide for what springs, oil ect to purchase. My question is besides the obvious set-up items are there any "must haves" that I should get?

Thanks for the help
Matt

Default wheel viberation

hi

I was wondering if some of you have a tip so my wheel wont viberate so much. It seems to me that the plastic hex hub isn`t the best. Any suggestion?
