Most of the time the 13.5 will be faster than if your running a normal stock motor.

Hi all,

Is the only difference between:
FR Spindle & carrier, Graphite (LOSA9755-LOSA9759)
and
FR Spindle Carriers, EA3: X-S (LOSA9760-LOSA9765)

the material??? or are they not the same molds/shape??

I'd been racing rubber tire/ carpet and love my JRXS-R (actually, I have 2 now)
I'm trying my hand at foam tire/carpet and have broken a couple of C's and would like to try the graphite ones if they're the same..

I know... I shouldn't hit the boards... But, until that day comes, I need the strongest ones I can find.

ps- With the new brew of A-arms, I haven't broken on in 3 months.

Cheers,
Mark

The graphite is more brittle, making it brake easier. The EA3 is more flexible, making it stronger than the graphite components.

Kave, use the sames ones as the kit has in the rear.

I use graphite knuckles and caster blocks with the ea3 arm....if you break it will almost always be a caster block. Using a ea3 c carrier will will usually leave the knucle to break....If you use all ea3 its hard to say what will go.

Make sure to trim down the excess past the nut on the axle and it will dramatically reduce breakage since there is less to catch on a barrier.

I would try this first. I'm not sure how it will be with a 10.5 but in 19t and 27t its great. If you lack a bit of back end traction raise the rear roll centre a tiny bit using some 0.75mm shims.
