Only owning a TC4, an FK05 and trolling this thread from time to time leaves me with a few questions if you don't mind helping.

Is the Paul C. stock foam set up still the standard or at least a good starting point?

What happened to JRX-S.net?

Has anyone ever been able to adapt a servo saver for this car? How is everyone avoiding stripping servo gears? (My buddy has used 2 KO Propo servos in it that strip nearly every race! A PDS-23344FET and a PS-2174FET both attached with a machined aluminum servo horn)

Thank you for your help. I am just trying to get a reliable and consistant car for my buddy to drive so he can move out of rookie and into stock with me.

JRXS.net, was completly abandond leaving only jrxs.com same site.

the small kimbrough servo saver works, for carpet I would use a servo saver, as per my only expierence on carpet, I felt I required it. I had no issues getting it in there.

I couldnt get a servo saver in the car... The aluminum horn is the problem. I have been using a cough, TC4 arm cough since the first week with the car. I stripped 3 horns in one week.. went to the more brittle AE one and havnt looked back.

Pauls setup should make the car pretty easy to drive. Pay SPECIFIC attantion to your camber settings. 1F and 2R are pretty much a standard for me. Any deveation and my car gets to be a handfull.

To me, also... it seems I have to have tires less than 2.19" to be happy..

Have only been shown it. No pics boys!

Em Team Losi guys keep developing great things for us.

Hey Keith, was there a big noticable change when you did that rear shock conversion? I was looking a the pictures you posted and it looks fairly simple to do. I am liking my car now but wonder if I would like it even better if I did the mod to it.

On your 2.19, did tires larger than this make the car feel weird and inconsistant? Sounds like this may have been my problem this winter. I'm too durn cheap to true down the tires enough. It kills me to buy new fresh foams and then commence to grind the crap out of them! LMAO

There are no carpet tracks left in my area. Several years ago there was one on the Gold Coast and one in Brisbane, but they have both closed. Just to clarify, there is no real season to change from one to the other. Some clubs choose to run there meeting at night in Summer and during the day in Winter, due to better racing conditions. Of course this is how it is in my area, other area's of Australia will probably differ for climatic reasons.

I predominately race Off-road the first half of the year and On-road the last half.

I'm not aware of their being 2 versions of the 1 way, however there was a first batch that was having problems with the 1 way bearings not being pushed in far enough, made it hard to build, and bound up when it was built. If you have one of those, just tap the 1 way bearings into the 1 way main hub, and it will work fine.

I dont have my calipers handy to figure out the standard to metric conversion for ya, but on the rare occasion I get to run on carpet, I start my tires out at 57mm. 58 should be fine, but I always like to practice with everything set how it will be for racing. If traction goes up super high, I go down to 56 to 56.5mm.

Bill, I'll be up at Stockton this weekend, you gonna be there?
