A reasonably tight and twisty asphalt track, and the grip tends to be quite low, although for that event is was pretty decent all weekend.

HiH

Great. I'll try your tip sheet next month. The track we race on in OKinawa (Japan) is low on grip with a good mix of tight and flowing turns.

Default JRXS Design

With the advent of LiPos you would think TC manufacturers would go with a central-mounted battery car like the JRXS. I know the car is old but it seems to make much more sense than what has become the standard TC layout. Gil Losi Jr is one hell of an RC car engineer and it's too bad he is in the tire peddling business instead of designing cars.

AGREED!!! At least when Gil jr. was there we got race winning ground breaking designs, now all losi is interested in is freaking RTR's

Hi guys,

I picked up a JRX-S this summer to run for rubber sedan. I have been running the xxx-s for a while now but I was curious if anyone knew off hand what size exactly he bearings are that go on the LCD and CVD pins? Any help is appreciated.

Losi standard clear for gear and the beige one for the thrust, works real well.

I also find that good but it lasts only a few runs. If you want longer time between rebuilds try AE stealth grease (black writing on tube).

The first of the planned changes is to add a little flex in the chassis. There may be someone out there that will reconize this mod as I came up with this idea about 5 years ago for the HPI Micro RS4 & it works great. So I decided to incorporate it into this car.
Adding a little more speed will be the only other change I make before the next trip.
I'll let you know how it works.
Well, I finely got to race my car today. I can honestly say that it's the first time this year that I've enjoyed running touring car. The car had very good steering response with the flex mod than it did without. The car was point & shoot all day. ( even when I put softer tires on the front then the back trying to get a little more steering) But when I figured out how to drive it with those tires, I actually turned my fastest lap of the day & it was a blast!
Qualified 3rd & finished 2nd. Not too bad for the maiden run.

Default shock settings

Hi all, sorry in adv, searched for shock and too many posts..

I setup my car to a 5mm ride height. However, my shock adjustments all are individual ? The screw on the shocks are all set to a diff level...is that normal ?

My Tekin ESC is on one side, my rx on the other ...i thought maybe the car is unbalanced ??

Before placing your shocks on the car, make sure that they are equal length when extending or compress to the same length.

You can use a caliper to measure this. Another way to measure length is to use the losi shock matching tool. http://www.losi.com/Products/Feature...odId=LOSA99170

Default shocks

the shocks are equal length. When i go to set the ride height, if i leave the shocks at same settings (screw on the shock), the left side is lower than the right by 1mm.

When i adj to the same ride height, the shock settings are lower on one side than the other.

I thought maybe all cars were like that depending on weight of each side .. but doesn't seem to be the case ...

anyone else ? or is everyone's shocks all even out on all sides ??
