I have read that the hpi inserts are thicker than the yokomo ones. What effect does the different thicknesses have? What inserts were you using with the 28's and 24's?

Ok this is a question about rims. Ofna rims crack and break, proline bends and warps, so whats a good 24mm rim to run?

The Yokomo Dish wheels are great. So are the HPI R5 wheels, though they're kinda expensive. I bought a bunch of them en masse awhile ago so I've been using R5s for some time.

Doug said you guys were having some good runs down at Comp RC. We are all going to Enid next weekend. Be a blast to get some OKC guys there.

I personally run the Ofna wheels with belted tires, and on high-bite surfaces. I have never had on break or crack, but I don't really hit alot of things hard. And you can't outrun the price.

I do run soft wheels(PL) with unbelted tires(H13 spec tires) to get a little more traction.

Yea Jeff I bought one last night. Wanted to give this belt car thing a try again.

We have our state championship on the 18th, so we are all working hard to get everything dialed in.

It was cool have Doug come down and race with us. He's got one pretty smooth losi.

Let us know any info you find out...we did some racing at enid last night and spent the night working on the losi...mine was better after the races...hate it when that happens.

Keep us up to date to what you find out. We are all planning on making the OKC race and could use some inside info

TO ALL OTHER XXX-S OWNERS- As I stated above...carpet starts next weekend so have any of you run the carpet set ups off of the Losi home page? Any comments or little changes you guys made would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I am very new to TC racing. I have the Losi XXX-S. But here is a set up from Bob Zhan, the fastest stock guy at my local carpet track. I don't think he will mind. He has posted this on a few other sites. I am going to run this set up.


Front:
70 wt oil, 57 piston, black spring, shock #3 on tower, stock castor blocks and kickup, no toe-in/out, -1.5 deg. camber, 4 mm ride height, high roll center.

Rear:
50 wt oil, 57 piston, blue spring, shock #3 on tower and outside on arm, stock toe-in, 0R rear pivot support, -1 deg camber, 4.5 mm ride height, high roll center.

Tires:
TRC Purple front and rear ( would have preferred Plaid in front but didn't have any yet)
full traction compound on rear, 1/3 front

Misc: batteries in rear, belt at loosest setting, P2k geared 26/90, Volvo S60 body, shortened front shock shafts and shock end.


Oh yeah, this set-up is for a tight ozite carpet track!

The shock shafts and ends are a start. Next try the shock body. You can find the info in the FAQ.
