LCG is too soft for carpet and Losi is too stiff for asphalt.
YeP!! Thats why Pro4 and the new HB Cyclone are the fastest and best cars out there because people who drive them maintain them properly to keep them on the edge(the peak proformance).

Web-Master make a Forum called "Product Reviews", then the "Best Cars, Best Motors, Best Paint, and other over and over discussed items can be placed there. Sort of one stop shop.

You folks noticed a brand new thred entitle "Bearings"

So instead of a thread being started everytime someone needs that kind of information, we can consolidate it all to one thread. I'm sure the thread will stay on the first page visibly with no problem considering how many times a similar individual thread is started each week. Let me know what you guys think and I can get one going

Great Idea steve....

Manybe have it locked and sticky at the top? and have one post on each car out there, with the pros and cons of each posted.... taking input from people who drive them. Just an idea.

sometimes new people dont even know what the "top" level cars are....

for example... tamiya has so many toureres going around that is hard to know whats good or not ta04, 415, ta05.... even withing a certain chassis there are different kits... e.g 415, 415ms, 415msx ...etc etc....

i know xray make great cars coz i am familar with the xb8 they got.

You can loosen the set screw, just don't touch my nuts. I don't what any more wheels coming off. That was a big reason why I gave up the Xray (and the shocks suck)

hey now chad it wasn't all the cars fault there was about three of us running the xray at one time and you where the one having the most trouble out of it you could fixed the wheel coming off after the first time it happened with a touch of locktite just sounds like poor race prep or maybe i was lurking around the corner with a screwdriver just trying to help you free up the wheels for you so you can get better freespin

I did have alot of freespin...and you did say that you'd relieve pressure on the axle bearings. It's all starting to add up

I have personally tried several of the cars listed and they are all good cars but my favorite is the X-ray FK05, probably because it is the closest to the FK04 I previouslt drove.

If you have been happy with your losi and like the way it drives I would suggest trying the JRX-S. The car is fast, easy to drive, and replacement parts are always available and inexpensive.

I must be the black sheep or something but I actualy like the x-ray shocks and have had fewer wheels come off on my x-ray in the last 2 years than I did on any of my AE / Losi / HPI / Tamiya sedans in 1/2 that time.

The XRAY-shocks... nightmare. I can build 2 more Yokomo shock sets with the time consumed to built one Xray shock set. I even experienced once new XRAY shock membrane with little hole in it. Damn!!!
Best Car : Yokomo (if you don't hard crash it too often or she will be your "shopping" car).
