    RE: OFFICIAL Team Losi Micro-T thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Like the one that comes with the 3racing chassis? (if you know what I am talking about)

    Do you have a link to something similar to yours?

    Dave, I know a driver of you skill this rarely happens, but if you hit something head on, do you find the steering suddenly reentering at a different offset? I have encountered this, and the only way to correct is to lift the truck up and put it back down, or reset the trim on the remote.
    I never have had a servo issue, I would assume that the lexan makeshift tierods would give enough to allow the servo to not lose center. Sorry bud, but I never had an issue with this. Still running bone stock electronics throughout except for the losi lipo.
    Hmmm.. maybe that's my issue then. I'm running ball links I stole from a mini heli.

    RE: OFFICIAL Team Losi Micro-T thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    whatcha looking for? the antenna? i don't think i have a link, but i know there are pix WAY back in this thread.

    basically, the original antenna was junk. so i took it off, and soldered just a plain old piece of wire on it. it was roughly the same length, but was certainly a heavier gauge. i could go REALLY far with the car.

    let me see if i can find the pics i posted....

    hmm..i used one from this cheapo rc car that has a little spriny at the bottom so it can flex..
    i think it is better when you have a fleible one so it doesnt always get scrathed when you flip it..
    If you arent breaking anything then you arent having enough fun!

    This is the anteena is currently have. I have it screwed to the tab instead of being soldered. I love this cable because it is durable and has no memory. Do you think there is a way to solder it on?

    RE: OFFICIAL Team Losi Micro-T thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Look at all that goo00000d stuff!!!

    NICE!

    Did you order from the Toyz?

    Mike, and everyone else, if you're going to go with the 3Racing trans. do yourself a favor and get a set of these:

    TAMIYA Hop-up Options, 3mm Shim Set #OP-585

    I picked them up at my LHS, but I've seen them on eBay as well.

    I used them to shim up my trans, and it's holding up very well. I have tried to use the tranny without shims, and blew the gears half way through the first battery. KRO mentioned a while back he shimmed at 0.5mm on one side. In my case I ended up shimming at 0.3mm total, using a 0.2 on one side and 0.1 on the other. You've got to find that nice -no slop movement- from side to side, without being too tight. I think this is much easier than that wire method I saw on YouTube.

    The good part of this shim pack is that you can mix and match and shim from both sides of the dif or just one... from 0.1mm to 0.6mm or more... it comes with 10 shims of each size 0.1, 0.2 or 0.3mm

    I LIKE IT!!!

    RE: OFFICIAL Team Losi Micro-T thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks, it is all in already

    i need the shims tho, and can't seem to find them. any help would be appreciated.

    also, the light setup, it is a 5 wire jumper from the servo to the esc on the stock car, but with the new 3 wire setup i am wondering how i will wire it in. there is clearly a power and a ground, but what shoild i make these tap into? i was thinking the switch for the ESC, as that would be constant power while the car is on. does that sound about right?

    oh, and you should hear this little motor run, it sounds CRAZY!!!!

    Yep , your gonna need too shim that gearbox . You will strip the diff if you dont .

    But once you get it shimmed it will last a long time , I probably have 40-50 runs on mine since the last time I rebuilt it and its still nice and smooth .

    RE: OFFICIAL Team Losi Micro-T thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just bought a toyz gearbox with bearings, is this gearbox good enough....does anyone know if this thing will need to be shimmed? I have no idea what to buy if it does, like the above stated a link to the shim kit would be most appreciated!! That is if I need one.

    i saw the wire trick on you tube from ThephilT, but i don't see how that helps much as it is not round (the "knot" in the wire makes me apprehensive)

    so i would love to see where to get this shim kit. i searched for a bit, and the only thing i found was stuff on Chinese eBay.

    i installed the servo and Rx last night, and programmed the ESC (which was WAY to easy BTW, :thumbup: to losi for another great product!!)

    also, :thumbup: to thetoyz.com!! RJ rocks, and is a hell of a person/company to deal with!!!

    i had another thought about the lights:

    since there is clearly a red (+) and a black (-) wire coming off the lights, i was thinking i could tap this in on one side of the switch, as in, in line with the red wire on the switch. that way, once the switch is triggered, the lights will come on.

    anyone have any suggestions?

    Just go to eBay.com and type in the search: "Tamiya 3mm shim set" it's part #OP-585

    A seller I have bought from before has them, his name is "Jr-Rc" in Japan.

    I can never seem to upload photos here.... don't know why, otherwise I would take a shot of the Shim set.

    I'll copy and paste a direct link to eBay... in the next reply, in case the moderator removes it.

    RE: OFFICIAL Team Losi Micro-T thread !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i dont know if anyone has found a fix for the front end slop yet.
    but tonight i had my T out and was looking over my spare parts.
    i had 2 stock shock shafts laying in my tool box, AH these fit tight in the knuckel, a little too tight but if you can bore the hole in the knuckle just a hair larger then it will turn freely.

    if you use these insted of the stock screws it takes away 95% of the slop in the steering!

    Yes, I bought two of them. One was a little on the tight side, but I think it loosened up after a few runs. But the other one needed shimming and that one works amazingly good now. Better than any combo I have ever tried.

    Thanks joe. Hey can you kinda explain what I am looking for when it would or would not need shimming...sure I am beating a dead horse, but I understand shimming tightens up the play in the diff bearing...what exactly to look for I am a litlle foggy in understanding. TY
