You have to grind out the little armpits in the top deck a little bit so the plugs clear them.

I used a very small sanding drum. It works very well and makes a perfect arc.

can I assume that the orion core 3200's will fit in the Type R? I know they are light and will need extra weight, but do they fit alright?

I just ordered my Type R (New Kit from Horizon),
I race at the Caleseum at HobbytownUSA. (Asphalt, High Traction, Indoor, tight turns).

I there a forum like TeamXray has it for their models?
I just not sure how to set it up for the first run at this kind of track.
In other words I am looking for the better starting set-up for this kind of track (Asphalt, High Traction, Indoor, tight turns).

Any help will be very appreciated!

Thanks, Viat

Hi all, am thinking of resurrecting my interest with asphalt racing, and so far I have 2 chassis on my wish list:

The JRXS -R or the Team Magic E4.

How do these cars compare with each other, as they look very similar in design (centre battery / motor)

Im 60/40 Losi biased, but with how Losi is marketing themselves at the moment (quasi RTR and Nitro focus), how are the parts / setup support for the JRXS?

The car will be paired up with lipo and brushless by the time IM ready to lay the money down... so what are peples experiences with this combination?

thanks for all input.

You need a longer ball cup like the ones they use on the offroad cars. You only use it for the ball stud on the tower, keep the other one for the hub.

The spool pulley i purchased recently was packaged as a 42 tooth(which i wanted),but i have just discovered that it is a 41!!
I think that this may have been part of the reason that i am having so much drama with getting the rear to be planted on exit of turns!!
Be sure to check your parts people!!
