Mine hold up fine. What is going wrong with yours?

Default ONE WAY

I'm running on a massive asphalt outdoodr track in ne FL http://www.angelfire.com/music5/g_ramos/home.html the setup has changed from what is on the site but it's still huge with killer sweepers and some TIGHT 180*s so i've got to deal with a little bit of everything.

how easy/hard to you guys think it would be to convert the XXX-S to a XXX-4. It seems like alls you would need is new arms, wheels, shock towers, body, and some different gearing.

just my .02 but for what you could buy a used xxx4 for, it would make it seem like a lot of work

Hi Bryan,

I need to go to Edinburgh in the next week or two for business.

Understand there is racing close by in Penicuik using a gym's hard wood floor on Monday nights. After reading their rules, I am not too sure about what is used for tires (rubber or foam) on a stock touring (saloon) car. If it's rubber, do you know what hardness works on that flooring?

TC3 wheel hexes. Just replace the losi ones with the AE ones. Mainly only need it with 28mm foams. With rubber tires you don't need them. It just takes away a little steering with rubber tires.
