I havent tried the one way yet and not sure if I want to. I like brakes too much! Guys always wonder how I go so deep into the corners and still make it through tightly. It's all about braking points.

Well right now our local club track has a stock class that's 27t and we're trying to move it up to a 19t class instead but i rarely ever brake....actually i cant recall the last time i actually used the brakes in a race except when staging for the race. I use the on and off throttle for getting around and the oneway makes it really sweet....but like i said i'm always looking for that extra edge.....we run on a ozite track and we have tons of grip.....

Hi tag,

Thanx 4 all the comment.
One side of the front one way feels 'squigy'. So i'm thinking its a goner.. Anyhow how do u ppl lube the one way..?

audiaudi,

Where can I get those tech racing front one ways? What's the part number of the TC3 bones that i'd need to get?

See, I run 90% of the time on parking lot tracks so the grip sometimes is a little, should we say, substandard. But hey, it's somewhere to race.

So you think running a spool is a little over kill....seeing how traction isn't that big of an issue? i'm just worried about tearing up parts that wouldn't normally get thrashed...

Like I said though, I haven't tore anything up because of the spool. I think it'll come down to driving style. I know some guys just cant run a one-way

... maybe its just my driving...

... next practice session, i want to make the car a little less aggressive going in but, a bit more steering going out.

... maybe ill move the front arms in the middle just as you suggested and ill try the blu springs at the rear...
highwayman: next time we hit the track i'll help you out with your set-up. but you have to be willing to try what i suggest. we're still talking about tset-up for he fiesta track right?

Hey guys,

Do you guys rememer how this whole Losi Sedan started out???
Also-do you remember Josh Cyruls modified IWC?? Heres some killer pics of a car that is NOT Josh's, but it copied every idea he had-the sway bar is especially nice!!! So if you ever wondered what Josh was driving the year before he started to test the XXXS-here it is.

Enjoy the pics!!
