Thanks! It's a bit recycled from my old JRXS... lucky me the body mounts are close.

Eeeyyyyeah. It's the Novak heatsink. Not so much fun to get in the car. You need to basically pull the rear end off the car. Fortunately, I don't see myself pulling the 4.5R out of there very often. It might be easier to build another car for a different motor. LOL.

Don't worry, it does dude! I hope to never have to run a sub-c battery in it ever again. It's just handy for screws when it's sittin' there on the bench.

A weighted LiPo tray would be extremely welcome. My tungsten weights don't look too bad with the carbon fiber and Nexus Racing stickers on them. :-)

Werd! I don't use mine to hold parts, I generally take one battery out and put the other back in immediately so the car is ready for its routine ride height/droop changes as I do my pre-race prep work.

Hi to evryone.
I'am new in this forum. I leave in Italy. I speak and write english very bad and so sorry for my mistake.
I'd like to know yours opinion about the JRXS-R because I want to buy one.

Thanks and have a nice day.
Roberto.

Very neutral. Reacts to changes well and the changes actually do what you think they're going to do. It is extremely easy to work on and maintain.

Give it a try. It will not let you down.

Need suggestion for front link.

I'm running this car in an indoor high traction asphalt. Want to know where can I find a setup? Want to know what is the advantage to change the jr link to stand link? What are the parts do I need to change to standard link? Is there any picture showing type r with standard link? thanks

Another question.
Do you think that are necessary some optional parts or not.
If yes, which parts I need? Only if it are really necessary.
Thanks

If you run rubber tires get yourself a spool pulley. Springs and sway bars always nice to have. The suspension blocks are not a bad investment either.

If you're looking to give it a shot before going all out just get the spool pulley and a couple sets of springs. If you run foam tires just build the car as it is out of the box. If you like it then you get serious on optional parts and spares.

I don't think hop-ups are necessary. After pouring over Dumas' car, he has not done much to it other than the custom battery trays. He changed very little to run rubber tire on carpet. That is how well thought out the Losi is. Next time I run my car, I will see if he ran the spool.

Can't wait to see him run his new BL MOD and Trinity EP 5-cell packs. Awesome numbers!

Gotta admit, I like colored bling on my ride!
