With respect to the different length arms, I think it has been said somewhere in this thread that it is not really possible. I believe Todd or someone else from Losi has stated that, when in the lower position, the diffs sit in the cutouts in the chassis and this would prevent the arms from being moved inward any significant amount. But you never know what Losi has in store! They seem to like doing things that are unconventional and seem impossible.

For now, you can use the XXX-S offset rear hubs for a short arm set up in the rear.

Well, it could be because two companies have tried it so far without much success on the racing scene. And the TC companies are all about winning the big races.

Once people think an idea may not work, their not too quick to take a shot at it themselves.

Stan I don't call lossing by 1.72 seconds a whoopin! Especially considering I ran a borrowed car with another borrowed body just to get to the race! Oh anyway wait till I get the new car and then we will see.

Todd -
There seems to be some banter on other threads about the size of the 36/3800 batteries.

My question - has Losi taken into account the size of these batteries? As it seems that they will be legal by the 2006 race season.

Thanks,
E

yes, it is my understanding that the battery tray was the cause of one of the delays...

On my car, it seemed the only thing preventing larger cells from fitting was the curvature of the center bulkhead; in the worst case, I think that an optional bulkhead could be released down the road that would accommodate cells of different sizes.

Just my experience though, I could be wrong.

I remember Todd saying something earlier in the thread about two small modifications that must be done to accomodate the larger cells. I could be wrong and I have yet to try anything other than a GP3300 in my car... I am sure Todd will be on later in the week and can clarify......

Thanks guys, I remember some of that as well, I just don't recall if it covered the larger cells that may be legal for 2006.

I wouldn't worry too much about the 3600/3700/3800 battery packs. I already have 3600 and 3700 packs and they fit fine in my XXX-S cars.

FYI...My XXX-S cars were fussy about some of the 3300 packs.

Gearhead--I have been running EA stock motors for the past 9 months and they are by far the fastest stock out of the package I have ever run in 15 yrs of RC. The guy does not miss a tunning trick when he prepares each motor by hand. Also, even a dunce like me with a couple extra pairs of springs and new brushes can keep these motors running fast as possible. Our club has usually alternated between a fast flowing and then a tighter technical track on each race Sunday and the EA ROAR 2 motors I have run do great on both types. Hope this helps.
