Horizon Hobby has "Late November" listed for the JRXS - R.

Is this release date still accurate?

I'd assume it means "anytime after the 15th"... lol

pro-3 had a molded tub chassis with angled sides. hotbodies upgrade to the pro-3 had elevated carbon fiber tabs attached to the cf chassis.

this is something that could be done to the car by anyone who buys it, but why? it has already been shown that the larger speedos can be installed on the chassis with minimal overhang.

Default by the looks of it there's a lot of over hang.

Wish Novak would get busy making a smaller GTB.

i called Losi about this this week and i applaud whomever i talked to for their honesty-

they said there is a posted mid-late NOV. date, but a more likely projection is mid DEC.

bummer for me since i'm looking to get into the TC game sooner than later, but atleast i can mask it as a christmas present....to myself ; )

I'm not sure if this question has been answered or not, but does anyone know if the Team Much More Motor Cooler will fit on the Type R?

Hi RobS,

I am pretty sure it will fit since there is nothing on top of the motor on the production car.

kropy: agree with you on that, but another delay is still another delay ... it still gets you down after getting all worked up and patiently waiting november to close in and then with november just two days away ... bam! you hear that its moved again .... bummer!

not arguing, just letting out some frustration.

Unfortunately it is getting pushed back and is really out of the hands of Losi right now.

Congrats to Dumas on his TQ and win in 19 turn at the Halloween Classic. Bad luck at the start of the mod main kept him from another possible win. Hopefully things turn around at the Indoor Champs.

Hey guys, I've got a question...and no, its not about when the car is coming out, so put that shot gun down T. Hodge!

My question is about the shocks. Has Losi put the shocks into a full set yet? I'm looking to get a full set to replace the TRF units I have on my TA05, but I'd prefer not to spend the small fortune neccesary to buy all the individual parts to make a set.

Now I'm sure some people are like "why would you want to get rid of the 'super great, fantastic, best in the industry, TRF shocks'", well frankly, I like the ones on the JRX-S better. They're smoother, easier to build, and stay cleaner inside.

So if Losi now sells them as a set, that would be great, if not, guess I'll either have to assemble a set of my own, or find someone to trade with me.

Thanks for any answers...
