Todd,

Quick question about sealing the edges. On the Losi sight is says use Super thin CA glue. Could I use epoxy instead. Cause if you use super glue or CA glue wont it chip off once something hits it? By sealing the edges can you please remind me what this will prevent.

Thanks

TL_XXX_s_Racer- First of all, get with it! Change your username to TL_JRXS_Racer!!! LOL...use CA glue as recommended on the Losi site, after, of course, you sand the edges with some 400 or 600 grit paper. Sealing the edges can prevent the carbon fiber from delaminating. If the CA seal DOES chip or flake away on a spot, it is really easy and quick to touch it up with another drop of CA. Good luck!


losixxxs- refer to above regarding usernames!!! Kidding, of course! Check your ball cups, to be sure they are not binding on your ball studs. Also check the molded linkage on the servo horn/arm to be sure that is free as well.

Ya thats what im gonna change it to. So no one change it to that. lol. Ok thanks. Another thing thats on my mind. It says also on the losi sight that you need to grind away some of the chassis for the diffs if you run them in the low posistion. I thought if we were going to spend 345 some odd bucks on the car dont u think we shouldnt make those adjustments to get a setup change to work. If they spent all that delay time and they didnt see that problem. They should of fixed that so all of us who dont have a dremel dont have to fix anything. Just my two cents.

Thanks anyways.

Travis,

Check and make sure you don't have P/N A1543 (bellcrank side) on upside down. This will cause the binding your talking about...

Also make sure not to use too much thread lock, this will seep out and stick the works up!!

So, how exactly is everyone addressing the NO servo saver issue?? I'm not real hot on the idea of breaking steering pieces or the servo itself!

Try a Kimbrough saver. Quite a few of the guys are using them. The medium and large sized savers fit.... I am not sure of the spring tension between the medium and large. If the large saver's spring is no stiffer go with the medium saver and vice versa....

Can you post a pic? Try removing the soldering tabs and take a look at the clearance you have. This will help you better figure out how to wire the batteries in. You can also take a look at Todd Hodge's section on www.teamlosi.com. He has a nice sample wiring pic.....

That will definitely be an issue with large saver when running stock and 19 turn...............

Personally I have not tried any servo saver's thus far. I have not had any issues.

Boy-dremeling the chassis for belt clearnace is a must. My rear belt after only 12 or so batteries has really shaven my rear belts outer carcass. There was belt material in the slot. So of course i yanked the diff and did the work. Of course the drivetrain spins a little freer now too.

BINGO. Nice post Nathan. I think the 45 deg angle is key to anyone having issues with their cells appearing to be too large.
