Default tweak

No matter how flat my bottom chassis was, whenevr I installed the Top Deck, it would cause the chassis to tweak. So bad that pushing on one side would cause the other side to lift up. Itried everything to eliminate the problem with no luck. I finally installed 4 counterunk washers on the rear 4 screws and bingo, no more bowing of the chassis. I am using the stock chassis and top deck.
Anybody else have this problem? How did you remedy it?

Sorry, Tony. I guess I bought the last two from IRP. There seems to be another Xray drought.

What is the advantage over the stock thrusts?

Yeah, it's definitely two sets of rears.

Default You can mount Losi JRX-S shocks on the 05.

Losi will be releasing a set of 4 for $62.00 from what I understand. Heres a pic and they work great.

Rookie,

Is there a part number for a shock rebuild kit for those shocks?

Thanks,

Mark

Default SHOCKS

I don't understand why so many people are changing the shocks that come with the kit! The shocks are very easy to build, don't leak, adjustable with the clickers and reliable... If it isn't broke why fix it??? I know Ralph Burch, Jilles Groskamp, the Myberg brothers, Bobby Flack, Peter Robison, Jarrod Scott and myself all use the stock shocks that come with the car.
