Honestly I think both, there are major TC races almost every month. In the summer there are very limited asphalt races so it is loosing some popularity. I think TC is going through a transition period with battery and motor technology. Eventually it will be easy once we are allowed to solely run Lipos and Brushless motors in all classes.

Thanks in advance for your time.
We make decisions based on what is going on at the time. It only makes business sense to do so. You mention the 1.8th Worlds, we were simply not prepared to attend last years WC. As for the TC Nats, it was a decision based on the turnout. By no means is Horizon telling us what we can and can not do. You also have to look at where the market is right now and you have to invest wisely where the market is telling you to do so.

Hey Cracker....I mean Gcracker..don't want Rev. Sharpton on my case....

On the rear setup for the arm sapcing it says "front" - does that mean that the spacer is towards the front of the car or the spacer is on the rear moving the arms to the "front"?

Check the Horizon site in a few days. Info should be listed on there with a estimated ETA for them. Also look for the weighted Lipo battery tray.

You have a leaf blower and an outdoor broom?

Buy yourself a small air compressor to blow it off after every round. That is just the nature of parking lot racing, not much you can do.

Did somebody say 'one-way'?


Front One-Way Assembly: JRX-S Type R-LOSA3358

Lightened aluminum housing
One-way bearings on either side
Wide diff provides support for high bite tracks
All necessary hardware included

The LOSA3358 Front One-Way Assembly is a drop in unit that replaces the stock front differential. The assembly includes a precision machined and lightened aluminum housing with one-way bearings in either side, outdrives, shafts, one-way pulleys, dogbones and all hardware. This type of one-way is a popular tuning item with racers who like and aggressive set up and/or run in extremely high bite conditions. Typically a front one-way will yield better acceleration out of a turn but does not have any braking capacity and is less forgiving. The front one-way can also be helpful in carrying greater corner speed on high-speed tracks with sweeping turns. All parts for the JRX-S Type-R front one-way are available separately.

Or did somebody say 'Lipo tray'?



JRX-S Type-R Steel LiPo Battery Tray-LOSA4312

Allows existing JRX-S Type R owners a direct fit option for standard LiPo battery packs
Adds an additional 120 grams to offset the reduced LiPo battery weight
The additional weight is place in the most ideal position possible ( placed directly in the center of the chassis and as low to the ground as possible

Finished in an attractive gloss black and engraved with the Type-R logo

I'm gonna assume this was the old one way for the original JRXS. I was recently at a race with Andrew and he was sporting the prototype not yet available from horizon that did not require the use of the short arms and even shorter dogbones. It was my impression that the design was finished. Losi is looking for a manufacture to mass produce the new one way.
