Default JRX-S R type tire combos help

Need a "little" help here plz

Looking for a good tire combo for the R-type on asphalt. Have been running Sorex 32Rs with Green Medium inserts and the car handling is now somewhat neutral.

I have put about 20 runs (of 5mins each) on these tires and the traction seems to be fading????

How long can I expect a set of boots to last and maintain premo traction?

Also is this the best tire combo for indoor asphalt (smoothish) with ambient temp of 75F to 80F???

Thanx for your help

hey gcracker

at socal most are running sorex 36r and yokomo 039F (thin firm) inserts on yokomo wheel (not the H2's)

regarding number of runs for optimal performance.... you will get multiple answers but first several runs will yield the best performance and then begin to fade from there. you can setup the car to get a somewhat extended life but 20 runs is actually quite a few.

hope thats some help...

Losi sold stock and mod motors in the 80s (Revolutions).

With the JRXS-R being so LiPo friendly, it's hard to be surprised by anything they do now. They have always been right on the cutting edge with everything, always being proactive instead of reactive, like everyone else.

I'm just waiting for the 1/8th buggy based on LiPo and brushless technology.

i didn't mean it like it was a bad thing, more like a surprised thing... like "woah, that'd be a first". developing their own electronics vs. importing somebody else's is quite a step for any company to take.

I do run with all four screws in, just, took those two out before thinking about taking the pic. I will try the tape idea this weekend. I have the British Open at Snetterton, Its a nice big track, so hoping for a good day. And some luck.

The sound of that 5 cell tray is interesting, the middle cell on end. we might have some problems fitting the packs to our single cell dischargers.
Good to see they are looking into it.

And those markes on the motor that from when we used to have to solder diodes on the motor can.
