If you don’t have the Flying Fox RC Top Shaft here is a modification that can be done to the kit top shaft set installation to gain that extra bit of clearance for the battery and allow the use of non-Losi spur gears. You will need the following extra Losi JRX-S Type R parts in addition to the kit furnished parts:

1 ea A6406 1/16”x5/16” Pin
2 ea A3253 4mm x 1.3mm Aluminum Spacers
1 ea A3322 Aluminum Spool Hub

Instead of using the spur gear mounting arrangement used in the stock kit, the spur gear will be mounted to a modified Aluminum Spool Hub as used on the stock kit left side. The modification to the Aluminum Spool Hub will entail installing mounting holes for the spur gear which will need to be drilled and tapped into the Aluminum Spool Hub – this is the only hard part. I use 3mm x 5mm screws to mount my spur gears and therefore used a M3-.50 tap. This needs to be done carefully and correctly; so if you don’t have the tools, skill or patience you may want to forgo this mod. Otherwise your spur gear will not be centered or you will have other problems.

The mounting arrangement is as follows (NOTE that the Top Shaft (A3254) is REVERSED from normal kit installation) starting from the left side:

1/16”x5/16” Pin
Kit Aluminum Spool Hub Assembly (NOTE: the assembly is REVERSED from stock kit installation)
2 each 4mm x 1.3mm Aluminum Spacers
Bearing
Bulkheads
Bearing
2 each 4mm x 1.3mm Aluminum Spacers
1/16”x5/16” Pin
Modified Aluminum Spool Hub Assembly (holes drilled for Spur Gear)
4mm E-Clip

Looks nice anyway, but where are the new shinny outdrives that go with it?

Also how are the diffs coming along? Considering a testing day mon/tue next week.

What are the advantages of a chopped top deck?? Will it help with traction for carpet?? I see people with chopped decks where they chop the c/f top plate where it attaches to the alum posts that attach the battery cover.

I have some slop in my arms, both front and rear. I build the kit according to theinstructions, however there is a little more slop than I would like. Question is, If I add shims, which side of the arm do I add them to???

I also run my speedo on the top deck, in the back just above the layshaft. Will I knowtice an improvement if I move it forward and on the bottom plate???

With the original spool you use the standard diff outdrives on both sides. These are designed for use with a diff.or slipper spool and do not have the ability to cope with big impacts when used with such a.solid connection to the motor. The newer version has been designed with new outdrives that more than double the contact on the load bearing keyed section. Also a better material in the outdrive will improve things further.

As a side note the newer outdrive material is.stronger and will also resist wear against the outdrives so you have a flatter surface for loner which resaults in more steering.

That's great and all, but will we be able to get one? I've been waiting months for a backordered layshaft. I'm starting to think I'll see a new Losi sedan before I get my order.

There are alot of new spools (v2) already to go but they need the new outdrive to go.with them. To make them.as good.as.possible the.new spool can't use the.kit outdrives. You can however use the new outdrives.with the old spool shich should be.ok in lower classes like 21.5 even.with a.big.hit. The safe bet is.get both though.
