It will happen... 1/12 will die for the summer and the new touring kits take over.... you can paint my touring body and say " There goes one of my bodies passing me...."

can the jrxs type R and the regular jrxs drivetrain handle a novak 3.5 brushless motor or the new orion vortex 3.5.

Hey Ed... No, I didn't write that setup down. I thought the car was junk that day. Just use the asphalt setup I posted and use a smaller rear sway bar... something like a .030.

Hi Schreff,

I've been checking out your setup you posted and the basic stuff is all pretty close to where I ended up for a Rubber Tir / carpet setup.

I noticed you have non-stock hexes in the rear .195. Have you found this makes much of a difference?

Mark... I was originally running .195s front and rear since the car is far from 190mm with rubber tires when running the stock hexes. I went to the standard hexes for more front traction. It definitely helped. The rear of the car was more free and the front dug in more. The front was about 186 and the rear about 188.

Just a little something I cooked up in the ol' laboatory, Makes a 3200 lipo powered "R" tip the scales at 54oz (1525g) weighs about 6-7 oz before the lightening holes are drilled

ahhh,
Thanks for the info. I'll probably give it a try and go a little wider in the rear.

I'm also ordering up an assortment of Lunsford ball studs to tinker with the front end.

The setup I've come up with is very similiar to yours, except for these two aspects (hex width and I'm running stock JR link for camber).


Thanks again,

Mark Taylor

Sweet Jesus, finally! That's great work, I hope something official comes along soon so we can all get our hands on one.

It fit for me,

The 3200 is a little loose from side to side but once plugged, it doesnt move. I modified the nimh tray so it fit better but It easyer to put weight in the lipo one.

Same experience here. The 3200 fit fine, but was a little loose. I lined the bottom of the LiPo tray with some flat weight which moved it up a bit, and made it more snug. The 4800 fits like a glove.
