Default help me

I am very interested in getting the JRXS-R but I only race on outside mostly in orlando Florida at Superior Hobbies and such. I keep reading poor reviews about outside set up. every one tells me to go corally or serpent and even the MI3, some say it personal preferance and so on. I need answers like does this car handle good in any situation or are there set up issues still?

Paul

There are some good asphalt setups for it but it does depend on your driving style. I got a setup from Schreff and tweaked it a little for my style of driving and love it. It does work well on asphalt.

I would disagree with that. My Type R was the best car I have driven outside. I think once you hit the setup on the Type R its pretty awesome. Give it a try, the parts are way cheaper than the Corally.

I have a Type-R coming in the mail and I'm looking for a couple setup sheets to compare. I have the IIC setup sheet but i've had a hard time finding any more. JRXS.com is not being maintained anymore so i can't actually join the site to get access to download the setup sheets they have there .

Any tips for someone moving from the Pro to the Type-R?

Does anyone know if Alu C hubs are available? or if they will be?

I keep on breaking them, and with very little cause. My previous car could withstand the greatest of hits, sometimes cartwheeling across the track. I keep a spare of everything, but yesterday I busted the right 4deg C hub twice, once in practice and then again in the first heat, a very disappointing finish to my day, especially when I spent $600 on new gear and parts the week before and travelled 500mi to be there, and didnt get to line up for the final.

seriously I didnt even notice the impact, no other cars around... go around a corner and then theres a wheel missing. I must have hit the boards, but if I did it would have been so softly...the car didnt flip, spin, change direction after the impact or anything to indicate that I hit something...

Maybe I got one made from the same batch of composite that the original arms were made from.

its just so disappointing to spend so much money, on gear, travel, accomodation, etc then to have a $3 plastic part break and put an end to the day...

OK, rant over, feeling better now.
