You kind of have to on this car for the way the steering link is setup. There may be another option but looking at it briefly I did not see one.

The car definitely turned a lot more using the kit setup without gluing the sidewalls. So, thanks for cluing me up to proper tire care. The car is awesome. I need to make it turn a little more to suit my (lack of) style, but I bested my previous fast lap by 2 tenths several times throughout the night.

The lower bumper plate seems a little bit fragile. I'm pulled the screws out of it during a single front impact. Is there a trick to making them last other than not hitting anything? I only hit two boards all night, and one of them killed it. :-)

Are you using the kit bumper or something else? I have not had an issue with that after I switched to PDub bumpers and trust me, I have hit a few things with those bumpers!!

Yep, PDub. I've got the BRP kydex on the way. Maybe it was just a fluke. I'll keep an extra one on hand just in case. I'm loving the cost of parts on this car, it's way less painful to stock your own spares, plus the shop actually has some stuff on the wall.

the new servo horns are a must use and because of this they have been carefully worked and reworked to ensure fit on all servo's.

I to use the airtronics ones, as I have found the standard ones jump splines.

I used to use an AE horn..

the new horn 23- fits the KO as mentioned.. and does not skip.


Just an FYI for you guys.. dont run the solid bellcrank. I ran it for 2 rounds of practice at the nats because we couldnt find a spring for the saver.. and those two rounds resulted in 2 broken servos.

Found a spring (thanks Kevin) and have not broken one yet.

I used longer screws or you can use longer 3mm screws. The 3mm screws are larger in diameter so it won't strip out as easy. You should be able to reuse the one you have if you use long 3mm ones.

I only wish I had a Losi Type R, there still not in the UK as yet I run a KO 2173 and do not run the nomal horn as I find they strip to easy. so I use the one with the metal ring that sits around the spline section.

when the type-r arrives checkout the new servo horn for fit and you should find it an improvement over any of the past ones.

i have a solid supply of ko and airtronics horns for my jrx-s... i've broken a few horns with that car. good news on the new and improved 23t horn.




syndr0me - with almost 2 years on my jrx-s, which i believe has the same bumper, and many many impacts i've never even come close to breaking the bumper plate. i run a p-dub bumper. you do have the mini locknut in the middle hole, right? if that's missing i could see it coming off very easily.
