Default Team Losi XXX-BK Brian Kinwald Edition

Does anyone have one of these? I have many questions for it I just bought on today at the races.

-When it takes off it makes a "barking like" sound is this the diff or slipper clutch I tightened the slipper and it still does it[:@]

-What are the best tires to run on packed dirt?

-It also makes a clicking noise when driving (not really loud though)[:@]

I am running a 17 turn motor and this thing flies!!! [8D]

I will post pictures tomarrow![:-]

The barking is usually a loose diff. The clicking you are hearing could be the motor coggin (if at low speeds) or a not so hot mesh job on the pinion/spur.

A good 17 turn geared properly will indeed fly. Wait till you start trying to run mod and run a 10 turn single.

I had a BKE back in 2003ish and you will enjoy that buggy, it's on my list of top two RC's I have owned. I definately enjoyed that one.

Sounds like you better tighten up that diff or you will be replacing it . The best answer you can get for tires is to ask some regulars at the track you go to . There are a few variables like different tires , tire compounds , and foams .

And not sure by packed dirt you mean hard clay? Or campacked sand?

If its clay run hole shots, if its dirt run bow ties.

Just spend some time with it at the track so you can get the buggy set to the track . More likely Taper Pins , BK Bars , Holeshots , Fuzzies will work but it depends on the track conditions on what compound and foams to use . At one track I go to we use different tires when the track is moist and at the middle of the day when it is dry . Best thing to do is practice and sure someone there will get you in the right direction .

You should buy an aluminum rear pivot block. This really has nothing to do with what you need for it now. Later down the road you will see that this piece breaks all the time. If you hit it right or go off a jump wrong it WILL break. It is also probably the hardest to get to piece.

My favorite tires are the holeshots but I also like the bowties partly because they last longer. Both handle great on hard packed dirt. especially if its wet down.
