Jasonchi-Plaid is the compound of foam, it is an orange(50-55 shore) outer ring with purple(40 shore) making up most of the tire. For carpet we normally run 26-30 mm wide tires. Jaco and TRC are the primary brands of tire used. Jaco's come only in 28 mm wide and TRC's come in 26 mm front's and 26 or 30 mm rears. Foams should be availible at most any hobby shop and most of the online retailers. You should probably check at the track you are planning on racing and see what the guys there are running.

Here's just a pic of the car after the first run, didn't break a thing on the car, and it held up real well.

BTW, notice the 2 screws going into the back of the bumper support brace, they screw into the swaybar mount holes, and make the front bumper and body posts much stiffer.

That looks slick Randman. You did the machining right?

Nice job on your Losi Randman.... So i keep seeing everyone refering to the Matt Francis setup for getting your car in the ball park, but is it any good for tight technical carpet tracks running rubber?

The setup i'm using is ok if that, but i must say i did run the front spool this past weekend since i tore up my front diff after the first heat.....needless to say it did work well( still took 2nd in the main) but something is still missing... anyone having any good results with there carpet setups they wanna share???

for rubber i always run a one-way. it takes a while to get used to but theyre so much faster and more fun to drive. for carpet i use Todd Hodge's setup off losi's website for trackside.

The ones I have measure .050,.060,.070 and .080. Its easy to make any size you want though out of piano wire.

I did all of the work on the chassis, but it was done with a dremel, still have to pick up my mill, when I do, the results will be even better

I havent tried any gear other than the kevlar one, but it spins very true, no wobbles, and no high spots on the gear. Held up fine with my 7 turn.

Well, how did you do with your first time out with the Losi?

Hey Randman, nice swiss cheese chassis you got there
Just a thought when looking at the photo though, all that work on the chassis itself, yet you have that big old plastic bumper on top of the foam bumper and not one hole milled out of it.....

Pretty well, the car felt consistant, unfortunately my motor was consistantly slow, and that isn't too good in prostock at SoCal.
