Yeah that is what i thought too!! I ran into a steel pin holding the inside track marker in place at full tilt w/ a 10.5, it hit so hard it curled the body UNDER the car and rubbed paint about a quarter inch under the bumper, note i said UNDER the bumper . It sheered the foam of the right side clean off, nice clean cut like w/ a knife. I was amazed the car still worked, the only casualties were the arm, the hingepin and it flexed the chassis in a weird way so the top bunch of layers of carbon cracked but i ran the rest of the day (this crash was the first qualifier) w/ the car and it ran great! It only took me about 10 minutes to get everything back in place too. So whatever bad name the type-r got for beign delicate they've definitely addressed it. The whole crowd went .... WHOOOOAAAA when i smacked up!

Bro i'm a fan, i love this car.

That is pretty good, When I had my JRXS a few years back, I clipped the pipe going into the sweeper and slammed the wall. When I returned to my pit I pulled the left rear bpdy post and the whole left rear fell out, The shock tower and the arm I think were the only thing that was broken, the camber link was still attached to the broken shock tower, It was funny to see the entire corner of the car just fall out when you pull the boby clip.

Remember the old arms?

idk about you guys, but i got my car a few days after horizon shipped it (i was one of the first in colorado to have one) and it had the very first production arms on it,

needless to say, it felt like someone had to breath on them to break them. I used to always cringe at the sight of someone hitting the boards because i thought they would break, even though my car would.

The new(er) arms are MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better, i can't remember the last time i broke an a-arm.

Now i can hit the boards with the best of them without worrying about breaking.

I caught a board this past weekend and only ended up breaking a C hub. The arm was intact with no cracks. The new arms are hella better imo. I was testing out the limit of cutting close to said board when I found out just how close I could get.

I didn't find a description on the new arm, what and or why are they different? They are not the EA3 I am guessing. Are they graphite like the old arms or are they just a harder plastic? Give us some details.

The first arms were just a bad batch. There was some defect in the way they were molded and resulted in less durable material. Unless you had some of the first kits you probably will not experience any of these arms. I have some lying here if you want me to send them to you.

Yeah me too made the mistake of picking some up off the internet before i knew better hahah, they were only 1$ each which i thought was a GREAT deal, now i know why. I've been careful to separate the lots and keep one set for an extreme emergency.

Hi guys, I just bought a jrxs-R

Just one question:

In have an old jrxs's (front motor) one-way unit, i wanna use it on my new type -R, so i need to switch the bearings left/right.
Is there a way to remove the one-way bearings from the tube without damaging them?

Thanks in advance!

I didn't think you had to modify anything to get the oneway to fit in the type-r. I thought they just sent different drive shafts.

Fast Freddy, as you already know, the bearings in the original JRXS one-way are backwards from that of the Type R one-way. As far as removing them to swap sides... I'm not sure that can be done without messing things up. They're pressed in there pretty good. I haven't seen any successful attempts at swapping them. You're better off getting a new one-way.

Now, if you do get them out to swap them, more power to ya.

Yes, on the type-R the front pulley is on the other side of the car, so if you install the old jrxs one-way without modification you'll have a 2WD sedan with 4 wheels braking action...

I tried pulling the bearings out of my one way to change them because they blew up... i used a heat gun and a screwdriver, now i have a warped bearing tube AND blowed up bearings ;0.

I picked it up off ebay, it was listed as a jrx-s pro one way, could be why the bearings are blowed up hahaha.
