No, the front and rear arm mounts are the same, in the rear the inner arm mounts are mounted 1 deg. further in on the chassis, approx. .030".

I asked this question a couple of days ago but no response so we'll try it again.

I know the car comes with a carpet setup but did the team drivers use that exact setup at the carpet nats? If they were different, are the setups posted anywhere???

I watched Andrew Gray's car at the nats and it had a lot of corner speed. Just wondering if there were any mods made to the carpet setup. CEFX is my home track so it would be nice to drop the car on the track with a proven setup.

I built the car with what comes in the kit and for asphalt set up.The kit comes with 2deg.pivot only. Why then do I still have 3deg.tow on left side and 2deg. tow on right side.Every losi touring car I ever bought had this problem.
Does anyone else have this problem???

Is it possible the rear hubs are jacked again in the kit? I remember this issue with the first car where one was a left 1/3 degree and the other was something else. I did not check mine but I will.

In the manual it states that there is 1dg inboard built in, you would need the 0 hubs to be at 1 total.

I read the posts. Thats not telling me why the car has 3DEG.TOW ON THE LEFT
AND 2DEG TOW ON THE RIGHT.THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE CAR LIKE EVERY OTHER LOSI OUT THERE.I just wish losi would get it right on one of there cars.I bought the xxx-cr and I also had issues with that also.The bulkhead was badly warped.They said they would get one out to me right away.That was 3 weeks ago.I bought the part I needed and got on with racing.Please losi
check your product. It's going to make me think twice about buying your product.After the fix on the xxx-cr I was a lap faster then with my asc.
Let's here if anyone had the same problem with there jrxs-r.If you did what was the fix.I want to resolve this problem.


Thanx.

The fix would be to get a 1 deg rear hub and put it on the side with less toe.....or put the opposite(r on l or l on r) on the side with more toe to take away a deg.
I would also try to loosen your rear arm mounts....try to shift them so the toe is even and tighten while holding in place.
