Default Carpet Car?

According to the link and info on Horizon website about the JRX-s Type R, the car was designed for carpet racing?!? Please tell me it's not so, and that Team Losi made this car to work just as well on asphalt....and the best part is that now I can fit the Orion 4800 Lipo packs, supposedly!!!

Interesting!!!

Easier access to diffs. A servo saver, finally. At least can use some parts from the JRX-S.

Questions:
Are the shocks a new design?
What size are the fan mounts are for?

They mean that the car will come with a front diff and springs suited for foam racing. You will need springs and your choice of front diff (spool/one-way) for rubber carpet or asphalt.

agree on the belt/solder thing. i wonder if the belts/pulleys could be reversed so that the front belt runs on the opposite side of the battery solder posts. of course you'd need a reverse one-way bearing if you run one.

definately like the easy-access diffs.

Ok, everyone seems to be asking the same question with the concern that this is a "foam only car". It's NOT. It rocks on aspalt as well. The kit will come "carpet ready" as far as springs, sway bar, and the general setup that we have been working on. It's "carpet ready" because it's being released at the start of the indoor season. All that will be needed to race on asphalt is a setup change as you would have to do with any car going carpet to asphalt. Hope this clears up any doubts.

vabroom - The shocks are the same as the current design. As far as the fans, I think they are for the small black ones like Novak sells (#5651)

gee-dub - Trust me soldering in the battery will not be a problem, after you do it a few times it will become second nature. It's way better than how we have to solder the battery in our prototype car now. As far as swaping the belt and stuff to the opposite side, that's not going to happen, you would have to have reverse rotation motors as well.

yyhayyim - Mike Truhe won the open mod class at the Reedy Race with the Type-R prototype, I think that proves it will run just fine on pavement.

thanks for the response/info, interested to see the machine in action. on the motor rotation, it would stay the same.

Wow, it's beautiful. If the car performs as well as people expect, it could be a killer choice for people making the move to LiPo. Who said innovation was dead in the sedan market?

Default How come Losi didn't make the rear stand offs

The same as the front. lol Those slanted stand offs look dorky. lol. The upper deck could be sharper in design by being able to dial in flex. Over all, I'm impressed. It still looks like there's not much room on the chassis. Nice to see they went to a Xray style shock mounts and tierods w/ ball screws.

Xray style shock mounts? Tierods w/ball screws?? Tamiya had them long before Xray.. I suppose they had that car design long before too..
