Losi is not without its problems!

Besides the front roll bar I would lay down the rear shocks flatter, increase rear camber (not more than 2 deg), rear toe -in, increase rear droop (longer shocks). Do the things one at a time a see the difference.
I have some confusion with the terms
When you are increasing droop, is that the 'reading' of the droop gauge increase? [shorter shock]
or the other way around

shouldn't your droop gauge go "-ve" when you shorten your shocks? i.e. DECREASING Droops!

Haha...Lengthen the shocks anyway.....depending which way you look at it. If you increase the shock length the amount your wheels drop when you lift the car (droop) increases...........whatever!

Mingfinity: DTM means going to 2/1mm on the gauge then. I did run a Pro3 for nearly half a year some time ago... I stopped once the graphite lower chasis came out...

Good move...and I bet you never looked back!! hehe......

BTW...how was your Type T when you ran it?...there is a damn cheap Type T in CC S/H! This car has worst re-sale value than an Alfa!!
