I made the sway bar myself. I bought the XX sway bar kit so I could get those little plastic pieces to hold the wire and that end ball that attaches to the wire. Then I bought .078 Rod and bent it to fight the car. I also bought a 4-40 threaded rod and ball cups to hold it to the arms. I also bought .60 Wire so I am going to make one out of that size.

I had made a fiberglass front bumper brace but during a race I rear ended someone in a first corner pileup and the thign shatered. Brown Brother Hobbies has the MF Front Bumber Brace. I also bought the Red Bumper from The Track in Maryland. It is well worth the investment. But this weekend I think I found a little bit better bumper off a HPI Nitro RS4. It is hard and stiff and you just have to trim it down. What I like about the MF Bumper and Brace is that there is a second piece that fights around the brace.

I finally got all the parts I ordered from Stormer Hobbies. Front and Rear Bumpers so that I can have a bumper set for regular Roll Center and Low Roll Center and the Body Mounting Post, All the Springs, TC3 alum Hubs, and a new Body. One thing about the springs. I ordered a set of Pink Springs and even though it says 1.15" the springs are only 1". Is this suppose to be this way or is it a screw up?

Next I am going to make a rear sway bar and Modify my chassis for the Low Roll Center.

One thing also is that I changed the location of the wire tonight on my car. In the picture I hace the wire away from the Diff Housing. Now I have it right next to the diff housing. Also I am going to cut the bumper Brace so that I can take those O Retainers and put it flush agains the part of the Diff housing that comes out towards the front. Right now the bar seems to want to slide a little left and right.

I will post a picture of it tomorrow

Default PINK SPRINGS

Hey Mike, I just checked the length of my pink springs with my calipers. My pinks are measuring 1.155". Maybe losi redesigned the springs. They did change the colors of the blue's. The original 1.15" blue's were a light blue, now they're a dark blue.

Default LOSI SPRINGS

Mike, I got 2 sets of all the springs and the only springs that are measuring 1" are the blacks and the purples. The blue, silver, red, pink, yellow, orange and white's are all measuring 1.15".

here is a e-mail that I got from Todd Hodge....

"Mike,

This is new. The new springs accomadate the new front shorter shock bodies. The springs were a running change. Eventually all of our springs will be 1".

CYA,
Todd"

Default Servo For XXX-S

I was looking at servos for my new xxx-s and wasnt sure what a good one would be. What type and model number are you guys running in your car now?

Thanks

Can't go wrong with a JR 8450 digital. You do need a radio that can control the speed of this servo (M8, Mars, etc).

I just took out my futaba 9402 and put in my KO fet servo. The Futaba is a killer servo. The only reason why I switched was because the Ko is faster and I like rotating my spare electronics every once in a while.

MDAWSON, I saw on another site that you recomended the Yokomo TC3 wheel hexes (the o-ring style) not the clamping style. Is there something wrong with the clamping style?

All personal preference. The o-ring adapters are pinned so they dont come off, as for the clamps they sometimes do not fully engage on the drive pin. The advantage of the oring is that the pin actually passes through the hex.

Thumbs up Yokomo Aluminum Hex Adapters

I have these adapters and I have to say they are nice. They will not stick to the inside of the wheel when you take a tire off. Here's the part# and price off the yokomo site. These were listed under the MR4-TC optional parts so I don't know if they're the same ones I'm running. I remember that the ones I bought were and optional part for the TC3.

part# ZS-011E
descriptionEZ Wheel Hubs (Blue Anodized)
price 8.00
