TLR Blog Update from JR Mitch:
If you like and follow our Team Losi Racing FaceBook page, our Team Manager Kevin Gahan, gave everyone a little insight on what the team has found to work the best over the last couple of major events. I [JR Mitch], along with other team drivers, have made these modifications/set-up changes to our nitro 8IGHT 4.0’s and 8IGHT-E 4.0’s. Here is a full run down here on the Team Blog of what’s needed and what to expect. Below are a list of parts and a picture showing how the HRC “D” plate is installed.
- HRC “D” plate (TLR244036) requires some dremeling to lay flat on the chassis after flipping it over. A LRC “C” plate with 1 down inserts (this “C” plate is the one the car comes with).
- A 40-gram front weight (TLR341001) with Black front springs (TLR243017).
- Front spindles in their higher location with front kick-up inserts 0 and 0.
- Standard width rear hexes (LOSA3530).
After having a couple of hours with the changes, I felt like I could drive the car harder and every little bump or imperfection in the track wouldn’t upset the car at the higher speed I was trying to go. There will be more testing taking place this weekend at Psycho Nitro Blast, so stay tuned for more updates.
