Your doubts about this are what? It is not designed like the old car, so just about anything will fit in this. 46's are not that much bigger then 42's, I run both in mine.

OkOk, i'll be easy on him.

They will fit just fine, however, they won't fit if you solder them wrong. The manual has a diagram on the optimum solder post posistions.

good luck

Yes IB4600's fit without a problem. The new car has a better designed battery tray than the original JRXS which would only fit a 4200 at best. This is just one of the many upgrades losi made when they put their heads together.

I am purchasing a Type R next week and was wondering what spares you guys recommend (running foam/carpet/17.5/Li-po) and also what spur gear for the motor as well. Also, what Li-po hard case pack is everyone getting to work with the steel tray? Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Ty

6dg castor blocks, 1 set of f/r arms, alum wheel hubs are nice, but not necessary, parma front bumper, and some type of longer turnbuckles. I cut down a small set I had, but for carpet you are going to run the long camber link position, and the stock turnbuckle is a little short.

SMC lipo packs have the best voltage of the approved roar packs, I run the pack upside down so the wires come out the right side. This will require a mod to the rear pulleys to clear the pack though, it's pretty easy you just shave the pulley that is on the spur side down so its thinner, then shim it a little bit towards the opposite side of car. (the pack is just a hair too wide). I think the CoreRC packs fit with less work and have good voltage, but racing stock voltage is king, if I didn't now hate nimh batteries they would be a little faster.


I run the LRP sphere/novak 17.5 combo, I had a gtb in the car, but the lrp has noticable punch difference, I have not tried another brand 17.5 yet.

The Orion 3200 & 4800 packs fit fine but the 3600 is too wide. Trackpower 4900 also fit well but the reedy 5000 do not.

be carefull with SMC packs Ive seen a total 4 packs (different racers) swell up after 4 minutes worth of racing, 2 of the packs were from a sponsored guy.

I would stick with Orion,CORE or Trackpower

Yup about $32 for the hub and $24 for the adapter. Plus shipping from EU = expensive.

Damn, i'd rather stock up on plastic hubs.

I hope he figures a way to produce them more efficiently in order to sell the hubs cheaper, cause at that price i have a hard time thinking they will sell. I guess some people just have the money though.

Are you guys really going through hubs that much? I think I have replaced hubs maybe twice on my car with in the year I have owned it. They were both really bad hits. I have set in my box but honestly they have been there for awhile. I could not begin to justify the cost of those aluminum ones.
