Just need to replace the broken front arms and look for a appropriate servo horn and linkage.

Well in fact a good member here gave this car and he shipped it in the Philippines and during my vacation i was able to clean and inspect the car.
Took some photos without the arms and brought it with here in Saudi Arabia and rebuilt installed a new front arms and so on.
The only thing left is the servo horn and linkage which i will snatch it to my XXX CR car while im waiting for the servo linkage parts that i ordered.

That's great to see a Kinwald being used as a runner,instead of languishing on a shelf (like mine)!
I'm talking with a printer about reproducing my decal stash and I have a mint XX CR Kinwald sheet that will be included,I'll let you know how it goes.

Great stuff! I love running my KW - I can't wait until next year's outdoor season when i'll race it again :)

Your car does have some unusual parts on it for a Kinwald - it has the earlier style front (wider) shock tower, also the slider driveshafts was a feature of the very first issue Double Xs - but I understand they were sometimes used by drivers of later variants as a tuning option, apparently because they tend to 'bind' in their slider action it has the effect of reducing rear end grip, making the car more lively (some drivers felt the XX was too safe to drive). Your car has the CR rear end (correct for a KW) but has the hub mouldings from the original XX rear end - so you must have alot of toe-in, as the CR rear pivot plate has built in toe aswell!

A tuning trick that I used to use for racing on tight indoor carpet tracks was to run flipped XX hubs on a CR rear end - this gave 0 deg toe & made the car really lively :wink:

Just to clear up potential confusion on the sliders for XX. The bushing only versions of the XX came with the sliders. The bushing versions came after the initial XX release.

"With the realease of the new Double-X and Double-XT kits with bushings came a plastic differential for the Double-X transmission. This new differential is designed to use the plastic "slider" type drive shafts. This was a design that many thought was incorporated only for cost reasons, but the truth is that there are conditions in which the plastic drive shafts out-perform the dogbone type drive shafts. Once the team drivers started using the slider drive shafts, Team Losi decided to offer a conversion kit so that anyone with a Double-X transmission could try them out.
The fact that the plastic differential and outdrives are less than ½ the weight of the standard steel outdrives and dogbones makes them ideal for stock class racing. Less rotating weight results in quicker acceleration, which is important in the stock class. The sliders also work in the modified class. The biggest advantage comes when the track is extra slick, or extremely bumpy. If the track is bumpy and slick, all the better."

It will fit any Double-X or Double-X retro-fit transmission.

I put the sliders on it, when I got the car the transmission was completely destroyed. that was all I had at the time. and didn't have the money to buy all of the parts to put it back 100% KW. its my fault :oops:

I always ran plastic outdrives and sliders on my XX4 to reduce the rotating weight of the transmission as there is a lot of energy lost with those three belts...
