Ya gotta check my profile, I havent gotten all the way out of my "noisy ass cuda" quite yet. (BTW, Dave Bristol found the fix for the loud drivetrain )

Ahh, I see. Once you finish the Losi, the Cuda will be seeing Ebay shortly, I'm sure.

BTW, you should have seen it on Friday, My brother in law had my old LXT on the track at Family. It didn't handle too badly either. I was very surprised. Funny as hell though when I drove it and I'm passing kids that just got their brand new T4's and they come ask me what truck that is that I'm driving. None of them had even heard of it.

Mark, are you planning on running that Toyota race up in Irvine? If so, any idea on what body you're going to run. (You have to run a Toyota or Lexus if you didn't know) I was thinking the Losi Lexus but I keep hearing that it pushes like a dump truck.
I will be there. It only pushes for cars that arent Losi. j/k

Losi Lexus for me. The body does work for high bite. For parking lot, it might just need some wing adjustment and tweaking.

I guess I really don't have a choice. I've been looking and reading and some of the other bodies look awesome but from what I hear, they handle even worse. I heard the Supra's and Celicas were the worst.

In the last few months, I've owned the SD, R2, and the Evo 3, I'm trying just about everything out there to see what I like the best. I'm running brushless right now, and because the motor has no drag, the car understeers horribly, so I am thinking that the resistance of the belt will actually help more than hurt. I wont be racing this coming week, but the week after, just want a small break, and make sure that I get everything built perfectly as well (giving myself time to cut the upper deck)

I have a couple of questions but dont want to look through the whole thread mabe you can help me. First what are you doing to free up the the chassie? Are you shimming or using certain barings or just plain keeping the bearings clean? Also Im running a one way but want to know what will tightining or loosining the rear diff do exactly? Thanks. I love the easy acsess of the rear diff BTW. Thanks.
I love those easy access diffs too.

anyway, personally, my G+ and a few others that i have seen, didn't require any shimmings to free up the drive train...

all my bearings are the ones that came with the kit... regular cleaning, oil will keep your G+ in tip top shape.

great work on the chassis.

with regards to the slight "drag" of the belt, it helps a little in my opinion, but i still think the tuneability of the losi will prove to be its greater asset.

Basically just found out the correct shims needed for everything, including the imput gears.

MarkD- I know every parking lot is a little different, but is your Socal set-up a lot different from what you run at most parking lot tracks. I normally race at Socal and I'm thinking of racing at the Toyoto/ Lexus Cup so I figured I ask. I haven't raced parking lot in a couple years and never with my Losi.
