the rcscrewz set works really good, but stay awy from the small screws included for the belt tunnel cover, they seem to have an enlargened hex head, and are prone to stripping very easily.

if you want extra screwz, just but the set for the nitro TC3, you will get all of the screws you need for the whole car, minus the small belt tunnel screws that you don't want to use anyway, plus about 70 spare screws, all for the same price as the losi setup, bonus.

has anyone had problems breaking chassis's? During the summer i got t-boned, and knocked out a battery strip and the battery strap mount. Then this week i hit a brick, slid into it, and broke the rear corner off my chassis, i din't even break the arm, just the chassis, i also stipped the two screws in the top of the diff cover. Maybe this losi isn't as bullet proof as i thought. I don't crash very much either, just when i do, i break.

Ummm, not trying to be a smart ass... but YOU HIT A BRICK, what did you think would break?????

Not as bullet proof as you thought... I'm willing to bet that 10 of 10 the brick will win.

I'd have to put my money on the brick. Any car is going to break if you hit something hard enough.

okay, yeah, rereading that, that does sound funny. I should have meantion i was only at half throttle, and i didn't hit it and stopped, i tapped it, and kept going, it took about 1 second beforei found out i broke. Yeah, i'd put the money on the brick too, but it wasn't like i hit it full out, i was half throttle, and just brushed it.

ouch, but hey, my motor was MIA,(getting tuned), and that was my only other motor on me. But that was my whole question, how could i break, was it just a weird circumstance that my chassis broke, and not my arm?

After seeing my friend go through 2 broken screws in his chassis this week, it got me very interested in aftermarket screws for my XXX-S. Im wondering if stainless would be a good choice (www.rcscrewz.com on ebay specifically) Has anyone used them?

I know theres a post in this thread somewhere about them, but 250+ pages is alot to sift through. I apologise for the double post
I have used the rcscrewz.com set on 2 of my 3 XXX-S cars. Their package provides a complete set with EVERY screw you need... Even has the little 2-56 and the droop screws. A great value.

Today, I received a new Losi Black Belt kit for my XXX-S from RC Tech in Daly City.

Was impressed that they got one to me first. Lawrence and Terrance of RC Tech rock!

How to we know that the shock springs are soft enough?
Does we must start with the softest and work to the hardest or the contrary?
My point is:
when do we know that the car is too soft or too hard?
I konw that the softest the suspension the more grip we can have.
When the car start to flip over must we put harder springs or sway-bars?
Some light on this will be great !
Thank's

Luck/experience....

I personnally always start Blue/Blue for asphalt/rubber tire, and Dk.Green/Dk.Green for asphalt/foams.

In general yes softer yeilds more traction, however on the front I have found stiffer springs to yeild more traction in alot of circumstances...

For traction rolls I usually start by usinmg less compound or a firmer front tire. Mainly because I almost always run a front swaybar...
