Nahhh--but about a month ago that nice slice through my thumb was a lil spooky! Man those fiber reinforced cut-off wheels don't play! LOL

5thscaleracer--LawtonLosi is just trying to stay on positive side over there in OK. He seems to be holding down the Losi fort on his own for the time being. LOL

Last week I installed and ran my One-way for a pack on the track. It was pretty nice untill I was checking it out later in the pits. For a oneway those outdrives were tight( not free spinning) and after the first run they even tightened up some more. Anybody run their one-way and had the same problem? Any ideas on a fix or what I need to check? Later gents

Check to make sure the 1 way bearing itself is pushed into the 1 way tube as far as it can be. I had the same problem with one of my 1 way's a while ago. If it's still tight just take out the shim holding the outdrive to the 1 way itself and where the outdrive rides on the bearing just make some scores in the material with an x-acto knife, that will make it so the outdrive wont pull outward when you are running.

Looking at the setup sheet, on the front of the car I see that the roll center is high and gets 2 .050 shims but I do not see any shims or height for the front pivot blocks. Should they be = to the roll center or should I just run them high like the stock setup and have the front arms at a angle.
Anyone?

Sorry, I dont really know what springs and oil to use, neither Josh or myself has ever run without the brackets.

So the roll center and the pivot blocks in the front get the shims bringing both arms up level ?

Hey Josh, Just wondering if you prefer to use the BK brackets or the new arms? Wondering if anyone at Losi has tested the new arms to see how they compare with the BK brackets?

Yes-Level to the chassis. And the rear has no shims and the blocks are flipped so the hinge pins are as low as possible.
