Its the same ratio as a xxxs if you ever ran one of those. I think about 32-34 / 128 on a stock motor.

128 teeth on spur. Use the pinions suggested above. Tight track is 32T and wide open track is 34T (maybe one tooth less if you are Sportsman level racer).

Hi all

Noone seemed to have an answer for this one.

Is there any reason Losi decided to keep all the shock springs Black rather than use colors as a differentiator? Was it cost of paint vs cost of stickers?

I ran carpet last night and tried the Adam Gray/Paul Lemieux setups and ran into some clearance problems with the 28mm foamies. I ended up moving the front shoc mount to the center and had to space the top shock mount and shim the lower mount to clear the outdrives. I was loosing my rearend and discovered it was the plastic battery door hitting the carpet. Also tried 20lb rear springs and it ot better but still a bit loose. Gotta try some new tires too.

Thanks

I was chatting with a local Losi guy and he stated it was done to confuse the crap out of people! LOL joke

Mainly to hide set-up.

I just made it over to the east coast and saw some of these cars run they are great, I still think the AE cars are better, but that is just MO.

Hi Lana

I had a TC3 and was never able to get it setup for either Asphalt or carpet. Once I bought the XXX-S, it was easy. The car ran smooth and setups were easy to adjust to track conditions. The JrXs has really tight tolerances. Adjusments are numerous. I have only run the car for 2 weeks worth of carpet runs and I like it. Its just a matter of finding that setup that works for me

Talking Black springs

The cost difference is not a factor. It is trivial in the big scheme.
On the "darker side" (pun intended) the factory guys have been blacking out their springs for years to hide their set ups. They don't have to anymore.
My guess the marketing was to make the car more "Factory Like".

With the battery mounting like it is, I don't think we will be seeing any RTR kits coming out. The factory stuff sells.

Now I just run the wrong stickers.

Yes, the spring thing (color) was for cost savings, also weight!
