but seriously though, with all the heavy items on the centerline of the car, it's far easier for an average joe like myself to run considerably quicker times. with the revised a-arms the car is dang near bullet proof. it's a piece of cake to work on, it has the same easy diff access as the xray and corally. it looks uber cool with the dark green anodized aluminum. it's really adjustable.

Yes, With a stock motor, I gain about 3 tenth per lap with it. It give the steering I was looking for. I'm now beating my T2's time and getting better and better

I also drive it without the rear post. It make it flex more and feel easier to drive.

BSchorr: I been running Xrays since the evo2... I had them all and still like them. I wanted something different for this season. I just started using Lipo. On the Xray, I had to put so much weight on the side to make it balanced... And since I will swich from Nimh to LIPO often (because my NIMH are faster) The losi make it so simple specially with the new steel tray. Swiching from BR to BL doesnt affect balancing. I know the Xray is one of the strongest car but the losi seem really close too. I broke a rear hub and a front C-hub in two severe crashs. Parts are inexpensive . Tighting the belt is way easiyer that the T2 as well. Anyways, I'm so happy with the car, I just got a second one!!!

The only things I can see that I don't really like about the car, Is
- Many different size of screws on the car (I have switch wrech often)
- I can't clean the Brushes and the cum between runs without taking out the motor. But does it really matter with BL getting so close to reality?

I am planning on using the gtb speedo with an orion stock brushless motor, can anyone tell me if that will work with the jrxs type r? Also, can anyone tell me what is the best 190mm body for the jrxs type r in stock brushless foam tires?

thanks.
