Are you guys still running the servo horn that came with the kit or are you running something else? Mine stripped out this past weekend and I replaced it with an aluminum one that doesn't take the ballstud on top - rather to the side. Should I go back to the kit horn?

G'Day guys... Thought that i'd share this setup with you. Its in the initial stages of running, and it still has a lot of work to be done. Still has a bit of understeer into corners, but rear end stays put quite well. On power steering is killer, and still nice and controllable.

Speed isn't really quick as I'm evaluating the LRP Eraser Brushless 13.5 for racing in the stock class. I'm probably about a tooth or two undergeared.

Hope this helps. I'll be posting a few more setups as soon as I get time to get out with the car....!

Here's a pic of the track.... pretty tight!

Get the kit replacement unless anyone here knows of any others available. I've found them to be the best for fitment and height. It could be a little lower though.

Hi Guys
I know this has been asked many times but what is the thickness of the wire on the springs for all the different rates? as I have sooooo many springs without tabs on them that without a clue what the wire thickness is I cant tell them apart. Sooner rather than later on this one please asim sitting here trying to sort them out.
Cheers Malc The im getting frustrated Man

Hey all as a reminder a guy was looking for the spring wire size chart...to tell them apart without the little stickers:

10.5lb .045"
12.5lb .047"
15lb .052"
17.5lb .054"
20lb .056"
25lb .060"
30lb .063"
35lb .066"
42.5lb .071"
50lb .072"
60lb .073"

Always worth while to keep this floating around...it was pretty buried over on the jrxs.com site.

this was posted by Mike Haynes way back on page 137

Hope it helps Malc, ( i ment to print it off for you)

cheers
tim

just as a matter of interest are there any other kits that use the same sway bars (not the hardware just the bars) as the typr R?

Unpainted springs are much more consistent on performance. Losi unpainted springs come with rate number labels (for yourself to keep track).

Unpainted springs might be more consistent, but all my JRXS springs are painted black...

Good Day

At my local track in Australia, in 540 Class, All the fast guys are running Schumachers, including myself. These seem unvbeatable in 540 class, But spares are scarse now for the older mission and mi2's. I have come to think that these cars are fast in 540 class due to the drive train layout and the efficiency of the drive train. Would i be able to be just as fast with the losi in 540 class ?. we normally run an FDR of 4.1. Can the Losi use diffrent spurs, or does it need an adapter for it ?.. I am looking for a car where it is just as fast (if not faster) than the mission and mi2's in 540 class?

Thanks ya'all

I do believe so. Almost all of the cars in the top end range of the market will be good. It mainly comes down to the drivers and setups.

PRS sell a spur gear adaptor that will take most aftermarket spurs on the market. The JRXS-R uses 64dp spurs out of the box, and option 48dp spurs are available too.

See above.

I think Stanbridges Hobbies in Perth have a huge range of spares in stock for the Mi2s. A fellow racer that runs the Mi2EC gets almost everything from them.
