    LOSI xxx-s makes its return

    Ok so this is starting point of my rebuild project. A rolling Losi XXX-s, I havenít driven onroad so a buddy gave me a good deal so I could give it a try. However for some reason I can never find satisfaction in an rc unless I have put some money and time into it. So thatís what I did with this one. This is the rtr version, so its all that plastic. First upgrade was to go graphite, so I went and bought a whole bunch of graphite stuff.



    Put the new arms, towers and sway bars on, started out with thin in front and thick in back. I was told later this was backwards, so I switched it once I got home.

    The vxl system I had was why to big and heavy to even try to put on this car, so I went out and bought a new system

    Never had to solder my own wires to a esc before, but it came out ok

    This was the nicest, cleanest way I could find to put the electronics for best results.

    And finally the finished project, I didn’t rebuild the diffs as I was told the car was only driven a few times, and the guy who owned it took care of his stuff. I did however rebuild the shocks (much harder than I thought they would be, and messy) as I want to go lighter on the fluid. I went with 50 and 40 weight, had 60 in it before all the way around.

    At this point I took it to the track to try it out, fyi, I am a total newb to onroad. I didn’t know camber meant so much, or all the little adjustments that can be done to improve cornering ability. So I had to real big issues. 1st I could not carry speed through a turn without my tail spinning out, over all very loose in corners. 2nd was my flipping, trying to keep up with my buddy, I would flip in the turns sometimes while he went faster straight through it.

    After talking with one of the track employees, I discovered my newb but had the suspension messed up.
    Camber is good now



    The front sway bar has also been replaced,
    Along with the rear.
