Most people seem modify it to accept a turnbuckle. I'm not sure why Losi didn't provide a easier solution. Here is one option:

Don't run it.... Most guys will try running a standard turnbuckle and realize how much better it is and never put the JR link back on. It give the car way more turn-in and most guys like that. Once I took mine off I have never even thought of putting them back on.

Default USVTA gearing for Type R

Hi All,

What's the magic gearing combo for a LiPO / 21.5 / JRXS 1.83 tranny for USVTA (assuming track is large enough that you want the max 4.2 FDR)?

I started to work the math...... I saw a 115 spur & 44 pinion would be almost dead nuts on, then realized that nobody makes a 115 spur (I don't think)

So, I'm opting to see if anybody already went through this???

For losi spur, 118/50 is the closest you can get, if you get a PRS, you can go, 108/47 for 4.21

Mike, on your carpet foam setup are you using standard or offset rear hubs? Thanks!

Standard hubs. The offset ones will make the car too wide.

It is common to use a lunsford 1 in. turnbuckle in the rear of the car. I then take the turnbuckles that came stock and use them up front with standard losi ball cups. You may need a ballstud instead of the screw the jr link uses. The camber link ball stud will vary based on setup, though most I see use the shortneck.

lunsford turnbuckles: 1061
standard losi kit ball cups: losa6017

Shortneck camber link ball stud: losa1233
or
tallneck camber link ball stud: losa6026

Also just in case.
standard losi kit turnbuckles: losa6532

Joel covered most of the stuffs there...

For the ballstuds you will see the lenght of the shaft between the shoulder and the ball is different by .030

Just curious, but has anybody noticed how unmatched the c hubs are? I had to go through 3 packs of 6 degree blocks to find two that were even close to being drilled the same.
