Yup, I just got to take peter's apart once or twice to rebuild it. I always thought the flatwire stuff was kinda cool.

i went to the track today. changing my rear springs to green, changed my anti-squat from -2 to 0, going to 24mm dbl pinks all around, going to .5 front toe out and moving out my rear shocks to hole three is what it took to finally get the car dialed. now, if only i learned how to drive.......
i was really surprised at the difference the conversion made.
do you guys have any suggestions for getting out a stripped chassis screw? i stripped one of the screws that go into the ackerman posts when i put too much threadlocker on it and i don't want to have to slot my brand new chassis with a dremel.

Craftsman has screw extractors that work pretty well. You really dont need thread lock anywhere on the XXXS.

You usually don't need thread lock on any kind of electric car.

we got a surprise visit from Mark dawson today. It sure was cool to run with him and meet his wife. She was a blast. The Losi looked good when it was on the track with the correct tire's.

Josh is motorless!

Why other TC is opposite because they want less steering on power and also less steering off power

... higher, meaning higher numerical value on the gauge?

... if i run higher droop (numerical value) in the rear, why will it give more on and off power steering?
