welcome to the losi worm gear axles.. that is why so many folks are drilling the housings and installing a plug of some sort. this is to replace the grease that is pushed out by the gears. the only thing to do is repack them with high quality grease often, use marine grease or something with a high drip point.

to much grease will do that. you can try packing them light and often see if that helps.

Realistically it is best to take it apart and clean it and repack it. Which sucks. I hate having unused grease sitting in the axle. It is adding weight and doing nothing. There is no good way to take apart the axle though. Really wish it was like a 1:1 where you have a diff cover.

Im having a helluva time trying to tighten the slipper. Is there any special way to tighten it up on the LCC, ive tried a allen key in the tip of the shaft (tee hee) and a wrench on the adjusting nut and cant get the damn thing to spin in that tight area. Ive unbolted the tranny and gt a better angle at it and to no avail. Ive also got a deep socket on the nut and tried tighteneing it against resistance on the wheels and that didnt work either... soooo i feel dumb and need help.

Also im pretty sure i have a old kit, should i just shoot losi an e-mail with the kit number and ask if its good for a free set of cvd's? sounds good to me

Alrighty, I bought and got in my losi comp crawler and a Hitec HS-225mg Mighty Mini. My problem is hooking up with the Dig, It didn't come with the LOSA4038 which is the servo horn side mount thing I need, Were they suppose to send this or am i supposed to buy this? Anyway to get around it? Here is a link of what I need, although I'm not sure how that little peice connects to the side of the servo so im able to mount it sideways.

You need to get ur dig mount from rcbros.com it's much better plus it lowers the center of gravity

Good call, that totally slipped my mind those mounted like a regular servo, just hoping they come back in stock very soon! Thanks

*edit* just found the adapter piece to the servo, still going to buy the rcbros one though.

Hello all,

I got my LCC a little while back and havent had to much time to work on it. I finally got it all setup and rolling and it started slipping abunch (free wheeling the motor) Im assuming its the slipper clutch since i read the FAQ. I tried tightening it and... well i feel a bit slow here but i cant figre out how to tighten the thing. Is there a trick to it? I've tried steadying the shaft with a allen key while trying to tighten the set nut. Also ive tried just holding the tires and trying to just tighten the nut that way but with no luck. Anyways im wondering is there a trick to this or am i just slow :P

Also ive got kit 2234, should i just shoot Losi support an e-mail with the serial number or hows everyone doing that? cause i think i have the older cvd's.

OK ... my "newbie" LNC/LCC question...

I am buying an "almost" roller LCC chassis from a member in the classifieds here... I currently have the LNC... I plan on mating them for the metal and mounting locations... the LCC is complete minus axles and tranny which is ok by me...

Is there any specific conversion tricks that I should know about ahead of time doing the chassis swap? Or does the LCC bolt right up with the LNC in every way??

most everything will bolt right up if u plan on putting the lnc axles and trans in. to put the trans in just turn the skid around.

Where can I get a LCC lower link kit for the LNC? More specifically, where to get the link ends as I've seen the threads for the delrin links.

Default pinion

I have a LNC with a Titan 550 21t and use a 20-22t pinion,both work great for different uses.Now I want to upgrade to a brushless system and if I read the gear ratio specs correct I will need to use a 17-18t pinion to match the gear ratios that the LCC guys are recommending [ 12-14t ] Is this correct? also I have 2 battery packs that are 2s 3200mah 25c and would like to use those on the new set up as they are almost new and fit great.Would a 17.5-18.5 motor still give good performance on 2s with the correct ratio or would I have to run a 13.5 for the higher RPM.

It might be time to start up a bunch of useless threads again according to the op, because there's no help in here so far?

I can answer this one. You need the tranny off the Losi comp crawler. The LCC and LNC have different tranny's, specifically a dig tranny. Check ebay or the for sale section for a used one.

you can run a 17.5-18.5t if you want as they will work fine on 2s just can be geared a lil bit higher or the 13.5t is a good option with a low gear ratio

u need the lcc dig trans and maybe the lcc battery and reciever trays and shock mounts because after you add the dig servo it may be to high to mount the stock lnc battery tray

Ok I also have the LNC, just got a few days ago, I can already tell I need dig, Diff motor then my 55t lathe and different 4links. Are the side plates the same on my lnc as a lcc (besides Color) , I would like to have a list of everything that is different from a lcc to a lnc and everything that is the same.

The side chassis plates are indeed the same. The lower chassis plate is also the same. As far as I can remember, these are the differences,

Transmission/dig
driveshafts
all links, upper and lower and servo
LCC has softer compound tires
battery tray, esc mount plate, receiver mount plate
shock mounts
Shocks
Hubs might be different, I think they are all plastic on the LNC
LCC doesn't have lights

I might have missed something. I'm turning my LNC into the LCC for around $100. I found a used tranny on this forum from a member for $50. The rest I ordered online. Hope this helps,
