1/8 Losi Inferno DX

Purchased in Singapore in 2004.

Released by Kyosho in 1992, the Inferno DX 4WD Buggy – # 3290 – was an entry level version of the inferno, and came partly assembled, with a lexan polycarbonate Bodyshell, a pre-installed Kyosho GS21-CR Engine with Muffler and Pull-Start. A Radio System and Fuel to be purchased separately.

   The 4WD model is shaft driven, on an alloy plate chassis, with gear type differentials, coil spring over oil filled plastic dampers, dogbone drive-shafts, front and rear braking system and bushings.

List: RC Cars

I have loved RC Cars since I was around 11. On Sundays my family would take a drive out to the West Bank in East London and watch the RC planes and the on-road 1/8 scale gas cars.

To Do

Check LSN (with Carb open!) – Should idle for 10+ seconds before dropping down.

Make sure to have at least 8″ of Fuel and Pressure line.

Check Linkage and opening (without Venturi) also check its clear.

Houston suggestions for Carb: 4.5 on LSN (Open Carb!), 3.75 on HSN


LSN – Almost Flush

HSN – just in from flush (1/2 – 1/4)
