Xpress, at that time you have to much weight of the car on your front wheel. Try harder springs or harder sway bar at the front. (if the entrance of the corner is ok and the exit is ok too, try the sway bar)

There are other things that can have influence on that...the general ideia is that if you have to much grip at one wheel is because you have to much weight at that wheel. With that in mind it could help. I say this because most of the times when we tink we have a loose rear in fact what we have is to much front.

This might seem like a stupid question to you guys but what is the difference between the jrx-s and the type-r except the fact that the electronics are switched what is the difference in how they drive? also would i be just as much a competitor with the jrx-s or no?

They're pretty much a completely different car. The Type R has the motor in the rear and longer suspension arms. The Type R has a much wider setup window, you can be off a bit and still drive it. The old car had to be spot on or you were all over the place.

I guess you could, not sure why you would want to. Optimized more for side by side or Lipo.

You can do! I did try to put stick pack in JRX-S R that fit, but I noticed stick's wired/plug reach servo mount (which would be diffcult with servo mount), I changed it, same notice it reach motor ( i dont want motor burn stick's wired-plug down). I decided to buy batteries side by side.

But you can do, if you had a brain genius to figure it find way. you don't. My recommend you get battery side by side or lipo battery. Or you can check another thread: Convert Stick Packs to Side-by-sides? <<Click

Good luck!

You can not fit the standard Lipos in the JRXS w/o serious modification. That car was made only for side by side packs. How ever I have heard that these will fit in the JRXS fine, but there may be some looseness: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/19354

I shaved the bubble shapes under my 3200 to put more weight under it. I tried it in my friend JRXS and manage to slip it in but the connectors were under the shaft. I think there was something in the way if I put the pack the other side but cant remember.

Your trying to fit a round peg into a square hole. The cruel reality is that it just isn't feasible.

As was said before that car was never designed for Lipo, but the Type R is. So you can hack the hell out of that car or save yourself the hassle and just get a Type R.
