They also make a plastic set...So, there are three different versions available.
I have to agree with JRX-S Bill, I have the AE graphite ones on my car also.
I'm not sure if the blue ones are the same width.
If any ones knows, please tell me.
I have been wanting to know that myself.

hey,
Im looking into getting into onroad for the first time mostly for bashing around and stuff. And Im looking into getting XXX-S because I really like the engineering and it would work well for a college project I have. But should I bother getting the graphite version? Im not racing just bashing around and stuff is it worth the extra money? Also I heard the black belt is a big upgrade. What are some others and what parts are mostly likely to break?

Hey you xxxs guys
I have a G+ and when i turn a sharp corner the kncukle are or something is binding and it rattles really loud. I think it slows me down a little and it is very annoying. If I turn my EPA down then it pushes cause I dont got enough steering. Anybody else have this problem?
The quicker the response the better

If you're just bashing get the standard kit. The only benefit of graphit is how much lighter it is but it also more brittle and breaks EASIER! Other than that you don't even need the black belt for bashing it just frees up the drivetrain a little. The car is solid and can handle some abuse fairly well!

Your CVDs are binding from excessive cvd angles. You need to glue a washer to the spindle to limit the amount the spindles can crank. Then make some setup changes to get the car to have a little more steering.

There are and will be plenty of good used graphite XXX-S cars on eBay. The Losi dedicated that are serious about racing should be upgrading soon...including me. Most will already have the black belt and other upgrades.

Put the BRP wide front bumper on the car and you shouldn't have to worry much about breaking things.

Just something to get me started as ive never ran with a spool before

Grip is medium and the track is medium technical.


thanks

Default My new xxx-s RTR II

Well heres my new team losi xxx-s rtr II.

I bought another xxx-s, for the fact that I really liked the last one I had and also that it is a ez car to tune. I am by no means a hardcore racer and will probably only race this car 5-6 times a year.

I have started ordering parts and am just waiting for them to show up.

Thanks for the info, and ya there are a lot of cars on ebay im waiting for some auctions today. I bid a two different cars thinking I would probably win one of them. But I think that is a mistake cause I think I might end up buying two oh well just have to sell one.

This may have been brought up in a previous post, but does anyone know who (on-line supplier) has the best price on a one-way? And is there one available from a source other than Losi? Thanks. Don

wicked...nice looking car!

Default online one way

Try Stormer http://www.stormerhobbies.com/ they are usually pretty good on price but shipping can sometimes be a little high.
