What a great start to March for the Losi Crawler team. This past weekend the OCRCRC hosted Comp #2 of their series at Corona Del Mar. The location could not have been any better with temps nearing the 80's, clear, sunny and on the beach.
Jake and I both brought the Comp Crawlers out for further testing. Jake took the overall win with 2 perfect scores on courses 2 and 3, while setting the lowest score on Course 1, which turned out to be the toughest to complete. I on the other hand finished 15th after completely screwed up on the 3rd course just 3 feet from the finish line LOL. Nothing should be taken from the Comp Crawlers handling, it was all driver error, maybe it was the scenery that distracted me.
We have been working on the tuning side of the Crawler. So far we have added about 5 ounces of weight in the front wheels and 2.5 ounces in the rear wheels. Using the provided link options, we have been learning a lot about which positions work best on courses that have steep inclines or not. All of this will of course be addressed in the owners manual and setup tips on Losi.com once the Crawler is released.
Look for more updates from the Crawler team very soon.
