I got my hands on an Unstuck chassis from Krazed Builds so thought I should document my Losi's rebirth.
I'm not really good at keeping a build thread going but will post what I've got.

Home made links and electronics plates.

It's now all wired up ready for testing and tuning.

Got the rig out for a round of our local comp series. The car drove really well considering I forgot to plug in the sensor cable. The chassis was outperforming my driving all day. Without the low rpm cogging it should be a force to be reckoned with I hope. I did some of my best driving and my 10 year old son drove it in the comp as well. He actually ended up placing ahead of me at the end of the day. Guess I'd better start building him a sporty of his own or stop giving him advice on course lol.

Found a bit of spare time at work the other day and turned up some TAG style adaptors for the rig. Still need to get hold of some XR10 axles and wraith knuckles but better steering is coming my way.

Some small progress today, just waiting on my xr10 shafts and knuckles to make their way down to Oz.

Do you make your own xr adapters?

I made this set, but I don't have regular access to machines to make up more.

Still waiting on my XR10 shafts to make it down to Australia, so fitted up some knuckle weights I whipped a while ago. Got about 55grams on each knuckle.



It was a magnificent day out today, so took her out for a test run. Car is driving really well but could probably do with a little more weight when I get a chance.

Default Re: Suij gets his Losi unstuck.

So I have shelved my home made TAG style steering mod for now. I snapped up one of Codyboy's kits instead.



Since receiving the kit I have modded the uni's for a bit more steering without binding and started to build up the axle using plastic XR10 knuckles and C hubs for now.



I found the standard XR10 setup wasn't giving much more steering angle than Losi CVDs so I made up some new carbon fibre steering arms from an old servo mount I had in the spares box.



I nave made up a new servo and electronics plate from aluminium and have some temporary steering links set up until I get myself some more rod to make the final ones.





Next will be installing the electrics and fitting it to the car.

I wasn't happy with the servo location in the above setup, so went back to the drawing board and came up with this.



This has moved the servo lower and also gives it some protection. I have also moved the tie rod behind the axle. This setup seems pretty good in the driveway. I still need to clearance the universals some more, but think I will disassemble them to do that.

Seems way wide. I understand why but isn't that really wide? Track width I mean.

It is a bit wide at 11 1/2", but I need to get some smaller hubs. I only had 750's on hand. Thinking shift hubs may be in my future.

Looking good suij, if you can get it down to about 10 1/2" you will be perfect. Thanks for sharing your build with us!

I made some progress with the parts I made for a TAG style xr10 conversion for a sporty for my son.


Just need some electronics for it and I can start building it up for him.
