Since my car has been so good, it might get better?...........Jim
W.E.D. Jim,

If you're running outside with rubber tires it might help ya out. The initial design did not have the rear braces, but after some more intense carpet/foam tire racing they incorporated them into the kit. It's only four screws. I would definitely try it. If anything just so you know what it does. I would expect to see a little more rear traction....

Does anybody know if the Fusion Battery Bars will fit and have enough clearance?

The fusion bars clear mine great. As good or better than some of my other packs.

Sway Bar Question

The directions for the sway bar kit does not give any info as to how long the tie-rod assembly should be.

Is there a specific length or just thread them together completly leaving no gap between the ball-cups?

Thanks,

Default Diff vs Spool vs One-Way

For a medium to high bite asphalt track with rubber tires Mod which one would be better.

1: Diff
2: Spool
3: One-Way

Last week I ran the car with dual diffs and the center one-way. It was extremely good just needed a little bit more turn in on and off power.

Which one is going to help the most?

Thanks,

Make them even. If your lucky they will even out when pointed in the right orientation, but the trick is to get small tie-rods like the ones on the car so they can be adjusted.

I tried the center one-way with the front diff and also with a spool. Adding the center one-way gave a little more steering both on and off power, but eliminated the brakes all together.

Adjust your linkage so that the sway bar comes off the swaybar mount/shock tower as close to a right angle as possible...you want that sway bar to be pretty much parallel with the chassis once the linkage is installed. Use a pair of calipers to be sure both left and right linkages are the same length, as are the front and rear linkages.

In addition, you can do yourself a favor by 'threading' set screw hole on the swaybar ball end all the way through BEFORE you install them onto the swaybars. This is definitely make installation of the smaller (0.030 for example) swaybars much easier (and less prone to tweaking/crimping/bending that small guage wire, too).

just built my new losi ride for the Reedy race....here is my 2 cents on building tips....

it is critical that you tap the spots where the locating pins go....or youll probably be buying a new 050 driver...

also...make sure you file the rear battery slot on the chassis so that the cell is "slammed" perfectly in the chassis....if you get this rite your packs will fit perfect....and be sure to check out Todds tips on the Losi web site...

Yeah, the new Losi car has been on a tear lately at all the big races. With the dominant performance at the birds and LRP race they are sure to be an unstoppable force. I don’t think the car is only good on carpet but it will be hooked up on asphalt like you won’t even believe!
