Really? I just called the guy over there a couple of weeks ago to verify the size screws in them, the guy I bought mine from had some that were too long, but he told me they have been out of production for awhile. You're right though, silver in stock. Maybe I should buy another just in case they decide to quit making them again?

I emailed PRS a little over a month ago and he told me they would be producing another batch. He said they made the original batch 3 years ago and they were discontinued because no one was buying them. Now with the BL stuff out everyone is starving for them especially for the people running 17.5's. They were nice enough to email me today and tell me that the new batch was in so i bought a few right away.

Thanks for clarifying that. I was wondering where that new stock came from? Now if they would start making the Pro Lite Touring spur again like they said they would I would be happy. PRS's stuff is top notch!

What do you mean by 76 Pro Lite spur, are you referring to tooth count? I like the Pro Lite Touring model because of the large access holes. Even though we dont really use them, they just look a bit cooler to me.

Steel losi plate.

I hope that losi will get the steel losi plate back online.

I know there is 1 or 2 other people selling similar steel plate but they do not have the little wall that protect the batt from moving.

Default any new losi sedan???

hey all: With the '08 ifmar on-road worlds in thailand later this year is there plans on a new 1/10th sedan or an updated version of the current jrxs-r sedan why or why not? Also are any losi team drivers using the new xcelorin brushless motors if so who and how do they like them so far? Thanks for the info

Default PRS adapter?

Just thought I'd throw this up there and mention that I thought it would be really cool if the PRS adapter had 2 versions? One just like it is and the other using the stock 4-8 bolt on pattern. Seems like the 4-8 bolt spurs are cheaper in cost.

Speedtech rc sells 3pk spurs for $9.99 but only in the 4-8 bolt config

a lot cheaper than the $7-9 a pop 3-6 bolt on spurs.

Larry Fairtrace and Jason Schreffler are both using the new Losi stuff. Last I heard they said it was great, but they hadn't done any mod racing with it yet. As far as a new car, apparently since it won a class at the Birds this year they think its good and no need for refinement. I for one would like to see some kind of new options for it. The platform has gone completely stale at this point. They need to release something new for it. Anything.

While Running Brushless, 76 tooth lets me run smallers pinion gears to get my FDR of 3.2 to just under 5, pinions 28 - 43. Also I am running them in my 1/12scale 17.5 car

I knew people were running 76's in 1/12, but I haven't seen it in tc yet. So the mesh is good with a 76? Doesn't seem like the motor would scoot that close.

I tried an 88 tooth (64p) spur and couldn't get the motor close enough to work. The smallest that worked for me was 104.

As for JRXS Type R upgrades or refinements... I guess a new motor plate that allows the motor to shift farther forward for brushless racing would work... though there isn't a whole lot more room before the layshaft.
