I've raced both the DB-01 and DB-01R for a few years. I think they're great. You can read about my experiences here.

The Losi does well in America not so much because of the dirt but because of the big jumps. The parachute effect is reduced when the truck is heavy. I'll probably add about a kilo to my SC10 4x4 when...

We already discussed the reason for not going with the single shaft one page earlier. The four gears do look like a lot of extra friction and complexity but it is really just one extra gear contact...

It does look a bit unbalanced on their demo unit, but they were using a club transponder on the motor side. A personal transponder can fit right on top of the servo. The 511 has components in pretty...

I wasn't talking about the torque making the buggy lean. I was thinking about the weight of the motor making the left side heavy. But then, I looked again and it's no more unbalanced than a 511X.

When it comes to racing, Tamiya sticks to what works, which is why TRF buggies have a pretty boring design once you've seen their older cousins from as JConcepts, Yokomo and Associated.

Ah, gotcha.

I think I was thinking too hard about what that box could be. As soon as I stopped thinking, I figured it out. Duh! They just wanted to mount the motor sideways and still run shafts....

If either of those gear can spin freely on the shaft, the car would be a 2WD.

The only thing we can be certain about that box is that it is out-of-the-box. I think they should have named it the...

So what is the lowdown on the B4/DB01 pad combo? Which pad slips more, the Tamiya or the B4? Am I right in thinking I want the rear to slip more than the front? Thanks.

I agree with DCM. Your oval diff bearing holders might be in the wrong way. They should be in with the diff sitting at its lowest point. Check them out.

The DB01 is a very reliable car once you...

You're right. I had another look at the manual and all the part numbers have a 1 in front now. I'm guessing the hex is the same but they changed the rim. Muratti mentioned on another thread (about...

That's interesting. You made me look up the online manuals. The 501X hex is part number 9804313. 502X uses 19804313. Maybe they made the new ones a bit bigger. They won't fit the old wheels at all?
