Any one with answer to my question.. now with the adjustment they made on the chassis the rear pivot block is much closer than the original chassis to the motor, I use the 13.5 Trinity with the cut out on the back of the motor and the fit is so tight, I am now looking for the spur adaptor, with the original chassis I had enough space so I didn't need the spur adaptor.

You possibly just switched to that motor and never noticed it was a different shape? Some of the bl motors have a "square" corner and you need to shave some off the block, others have a bevel and dont need it.

Renato, np man...now you just need laps

I had to to some grinding too when I use my Losi or Hacker motor but with the Trinity motor there was more than enough space because the Trinity motor have the cutout in the rear of the motor.

I did notice the difference when I put the two chassis together the pivot blocks near to the motor was up by about 3mm, even shaving the block to almost hitting the threads, the chassis is off.

Thanks
Tim
Anyone?

I am going to ask this cause I never got the answer I was really looking at. Can someone tell me which orion Lipos fit the JRX-S Type R chasis without modification.

None worth running 4800 and 3200 and guaranteed fit, I think their new one is the same dimensions as the 4800, but generally the orion cells are down on average voltage vs the checkpoint, core, SMC and trackpower. It's worth the little extra work to make the other packs fit, only the SMC 5000 requires dremeling of the bulkhead because it's tall, the others are a little wide, so you widen the pulleys.

MikeXray,

Thanks for the response. I also heard the Checkpoint 5400 fits as well. This purchase will be my intro into the Lipo world so I am ok starting off at the 3200 and getting 2 or 3 lipos to include a 4800 and the 5400. The price pushes me away a little but it is the way our hobby is.

I checked all 3 chassis I have and they are all in the same location.

Good for you, I call Horizon and they said to send it in and they will replace it, it's just a pain to package it up and then sending it, now a $70.00 chassis is now $80.00 + and I have to wait for another 2 weeks to get my chassis.

Any time bro. Just make sure you keep sitting at the Losi table because all the hater's are no fun. now get a second losi so you can run foam too.
