the part's came from a seller in the U.S, aaron (so cool to post it all to me :wink: ) and i both came to the conclusion they were from an x racer, due to the shear volume of part's and some unusal one off's i have found. i went halves with a good mate in the shipping cost's and this is a small amount of the part's we have, if anyone see's something they might need just let me know :)

Very nice find, GJW. I would take 2 of each but it would prbably cost $300 for shipping back to the US. :lol: Congratulations on the pot of gold you have there!

Here are my Team Losi factory hand made prototype 25 degree caster front hub carriers to XX. The proto parts are on top, standard parts on bottom. The parts are made so that the hinge pin hole is stuffed with some gray stuff and new hole is drilled in 5 degree angle. A little fiddle is also made.

I had heard gold colored Losi shock bodies existed, but never had seen with my own eyes. I recently got some in and thought I should add them here. Don't know why they insisted on using the same part number as the black versions. They are both considered a5029.

I had picked up a local project lot awhile back and had a set of 4 gold losi shocks with it. Didn't realize it til I was packing up the parts to ship. Thought they were the silver but when I cleaned the mounds of oily dirt off them I seen the gold. Also didn't realize it was anything special til I just read this :(

I would "specially" like a set on my LXT :)

I've seen them on the LHS wall (no, not recently) wondering why Losi did that.

LRM Gears:
Top row: "light" gears. Dark, almost black plastic. The pic is not good here, but there is small number 1 molded "at 4 o'clock".
Middle row: "normal" gray gears with bigger number 1 molded "at 3 o'clock"
Bottom row: Same as above but no numbers pressed.

XX rear shock tower (factory hand made proto tower):
Top: Standard rear shock tower, nothing special in it.
Bottom: The tower is from proto XX car from the 93 worlds (see eg. Joel Johnson's car pics from that race RCCA article) and very similar tower can be seen in very early XX promo pics from eg. RCCA magazines (the front shock tower in this early promo car is also not the same as in production car). The 4 screw holes in middle area are for additional plastic? wing mount and wing wire marks can be seen next to those screw holes.

How are those 5 upper shock mounting screws compared to standard tower? See pic below. Both towers are in line and 4 outermost holes are exactly the same and 5th hole inside is in same arc as others.

XX rear hub carriers (factory machined proto parts?):
Bottom: Standard XX 2.5-degree toe in rear hub carriers. These, 2.5-degree toe in hub carriers, have two marks in front bottom below the outer hinge pin hole. There is "L" and "R" molded to these on front side to a little circle.
Top: There is some modifications on these hubs:
- Some upper suspension arms holes have been redrilled to little different locations.
- Lower hinge pin hole seems to have different toe angle, since the hole is not in middle as they are in standard hubs
- The circle where "should be" "L" and "R" are empty.

Another pic from these hubs:
Top: Standard XX 2.5 degree rear hub carriers again
Bottom: Both hubs have hand made numbers in them (upside down): "0*" (=degrees) and "220". Also the surface of outer hinge pin have been sanded.

XX Front arms (factory hand machined proto arms):
These arms are probably from 95 worlds. They made the front end a little narrower. Material have been moved to make room for front hub carrier, but not enough so material have to be removed also from front hub carrier. I can give dimensions and better pics if someone is doing someday a replica of XX car from that race.
