I like that off camber left turn (coming towards the camera on the far right side of the video) on the 2nd track. I'm gonna have to talk to our local track owner to see about incorporating something like that. Keeps things interesting.

Are talking about the ball end that mounts to the trailing arm? If so I use the the original Losi ball ends, just drill them out a bit larger so the PowerStroke shaft will thread in.

Took some "glamour girl" shots the other night and figured I'd share. The rig is now officially dust covered after these pics and had a pretty good shakedown. I need to play with spring rates and oil weights though. Could not quite get her dialed.

Is anyone able to measure the diameter of the stock disk brake rotor?

Thanks guys - I appreciate it!

Landy TRX 4 - those are the Axial METHOD SC wheels.

nedmo - I'm running the Exotek aluminum rotors now. I think they're the same diameter though.

My young padawan (buddy of mine) took his first baja rey "trophy" home today. He claims its my setup besides the rear diff being open, though i think the rear springs are stiffer than 1st gen. Open rear diff, locked center. I will load a video up on yt and link it here later.

I never used AVC. Actually raced mine for a couple years. I used a savox 1258 in mine. Worked well.

A few guys have put on SCT bodies, I believe that with most bodies the wheelbase needs adjusting using Yeti trailing arms. I am putting the New Ford body on my totally rebuilt B-Rey, but it was designed for the truck. Anything can be done, pick out a body and adjust accordingly.

I think one of the associated bodies will fit it, I think itís called the sc8. In my opinion it doesnít look good. The yeti raptor body will fit with some minor trimming. I put the Baja rey raptor body on mine but I donít think it looks as good as the original rey body, Iím thinking of switching back. Itís just to big and bulky. Your options are limited, Iím getting kind of sick of all the raptor bodies on everything, I wish somebody would make something different for it. For me I like the stock original rey body or the proline yeti body.

I agree - the Raptor body has been over exposed. Also, imho, Losi dicked it up for the Baja Rey by leaving that secondary open window. The proportions just look all wrong to me.

I actually think the Losi Raptor body is pretty close to a few trucks out there, esp #7 Bryce Menzies, his truck always looks lower and wider than most other ones, in my opinion anyway. He is redesigning the layout of his truck for next year and the new body is much less bulky looking for sure. I also like the original body as well it looks super aggressive compared the Raptor. I like them both for different reasons so I will have one of each!! Getting back to the Rey after I finish up my Capra, never enough time!!!
