So the spool for this car is just a locked diff?

Which one does this car handle better diff or spool?

Default Set-Ups

JRXS Bill

You helped me out a while back with an asphalt set-up for an old fart> one that wasn't twitchy and was easy to drive.

The set-up you gave me was w/o pooky shochk brackets, no spacers under front pivot block, 1* rear pivots and swaybars font/rear.

I just got to try this out saturday night and it was pretty good except for some initial rear kick-out before they sauced the track surface, than it was fine.

I was wondering if you have any up-dates to that set-up, ie Pooky Brackets
Front Diff, shock pistons etc. or just a new set-up that you feel may be a bit more consistent.

I'm not complaining by no means, just looking for improvement.

Thanks

No problem...Copy the posted Josh Numan asphalt rubber setup with the BK (or PookyT) shock brackets. That is where I am at. Josh used it to win Open Mod at the Reedy; but, I use it for both Stock & 19T. Very versatile because most changes only involve tire/insert/wheel selections.

FYI...The above description doesn't sound like anything I remember giving out. I went from the kit setup to Todd Hodge's and then to Josh's (very similar to Todd's). All have been for rubber on asphalt.

Got to use it on my first bumpy track this past weekend. I could go through bumpy spots that were throwing other cars completely off the track. Great fun!

Roberto-- To me the car is quicker and more consistant with the spool. That is to say at least on asphalt. And yes the spool is a locked diff.

How long did it take you guys to get your replacement rear hubs?

I requested mine from Losi about a month ago and still haven't gotten them.

I even got confirmation back from T. Hodge by email saying they would be sent.

Yeah I dont know yet I just sent an email to Todd about it and he got right back to me. I think they are getting ready for the worlds so if they dont go out soon or hasnt gone out yet it will be a while until we see them maybe. I will hold out and hope to see them maybe this week or next, but if not Im sure when he gets back to the states he will make up for it.

Oops this may been a oversight on my end. I am sorry. Please call Team Losi and talk to Bill Goldsmith. He will get your squared away. I am off to Italy tomorrow so I can not do anything right now.

Darkseid,

Does a dark cloud just follow you around??? You could startup another "Is it here yet?" string.

I just used a set of zero degree hubs from my XXX-S spares box. Todd saw me a few days later and handed a set to me with the little TL logo above the "0".. They are still in my box because I haven't broken any JRX_S parts yet.

Todd is faster than FedEx and more reliable than George Bush.

Good luck!

Ciao Todd...

The TL logo stands for "Todd's Leftovers"
