I dont use a LOSa6026 either that thing is too short, I made my own i thought you saw that on my blog?

I did, however I found these studs in my tool box and decided to try them out. I was suprised with the result as it removed lots of slop.

Have you downloaded the roll centre calculator for the type-R. This may help solve the tire situation, Re Paul L.

They are the same. Nothing different about the original car and the R in the area of the adapter.

yes I do have that program but IMO camber rod giving me too much camber gain when I had to run 1.5-2 deg static camber with the Jaco blue.

Default Setup theory

17.5 carpet rubber tires "blues"

Been playing around with front roll centers a lot this past week. I was fighting a car that was "twitchy" and went from super high roll centers +.050 high to +.030 low in a few days and found that the car wanted softer springs with high roll centers and stiffer springs with lower roll centers.

Also it looks like the JR link forces grip on the outside edge of the tire and not the inside like the ball stud setup?

Anyone found the same things?

Default Brushless motor fitment.

I bought a Tekin Redline system for my JRXS and I can't get the motor to fit. I have a Losi 90 tooth 48p spur and a 37 tooth pinion. I shaved some off the inside of the left side rear hinge block, but it seems like I'd have to take a lot more material off to get it to fit. Does any one have this motor in their car? can I see pics of the hinge block? I'd hate to have to take plastic off the back of the motor. Just for giggles I tried to fit a Xcelorin motor inn there as well, it fits, but just BARELY. If I hadn't removed the material to try to fit the Redline motor in I doubt that the Xcelorin would have fit either. Are all brushless motors going to be a tight fit in this car?

Losi, Trinity fits fine, Tekin need to shaved that plastic off in most case.

I have a Tekin 10.5 I had in the car and I had to shave down the aluminum block so it would fit. I have since gone to a Fantom Duo 10.5 and it seemed to drop right in.
