Hi Guys,

We just receive the rest of our Project XXX-S Hop-ups today. The new parts that came in today are:

Aluminum Front inner hinge-pin mount (w/low roll center option)
Aluminum Rear inner hinge-pin mount (w/low roll center option)
Aluminum Steering bellcranks (removes any flex or slop in the steering, and it is also very light)

All of our parts are clear anodized in a silver finish.

Check them at www.projectxxx-s.com or you can visit www.speedtechrc.com

I just pick up another XXX-S today, setting this one up for mod sedan

Thanks

Steve Wang

Mr Losi- So far they are just running the stock class, Scotty hasnt said anything about the ProStock class this year. I guess there was 40+ for the Tues road course and we had 53 on Sun.

Yea, I would like to get down by you to run but it is a long haul from Sheboygan, even at his new place I can make it in about 55mins.

ottoman - I haven't driven mine yet but from what I have seen is that the XXX-S can carry more speed in and out of the corner. So maybe you can use this to compensate for acceleration.

slow...yes I carry more speed through the corners....thats how I managed to run with most of them...but if I could keep closer between the corners I could win a lot of races...

Hey Ottoman:

I have been running Tuesdays at Scottys and have been no better than 3rd. Could you give some more specifics on your setup? My car doesn't seem to have the roll speed in the corner. I did go to the one way for the main and I think it helped but I didn't adjust the car and it was way too loose.

Thanks.

SamIam...well I have only raced mine the last two Sundays at trackside...I got one of the first ones and kind of forgot it till the oneways came out...I cant say I have a lot of knowledge about them yet....I tried the team drivers setups but I didnt care for them so right now i am running the one way with red asc. in front and blue asc. in the rear...80 weight all around. upper arms in stock locations...sorex 24/20 with HPI reds. This has a LOT of steering but thats how I like it. Come and race on Sun I plan to be there. Oh yea, I also have most of the graphite stuff

SamIam....do you also find that you give up a lot to the TC3's out of the corners? What setup are you running. Third is great! I finished 2nd the two times I ran my Losi but as we all know a couple of bad breaks and I could have been way back.
