I want to get rid of the JR links also, thanks for the infos.
If ever I cant get one of those, can I just use xray T2 ball ends, turnbuckles and ball cups?

Also I dont want to modify the c-hub just to make the LCD fit. Can I also use
T2's wide c-hubs? What else will I be needing for this mod?

Also, can a Lipo "stick pack" fit in without any mods? Ill be using Acorn's 3600mah stick packs and will be using the rectangular types mid year.

I havent fully assembled the kit... just started with the diffs, shocks, CVDs and servo saver. This weekend Ill be sealing the the CF parts with CA.

there is not much to mod the C-hub. Just take a file, or what I do is just use a knife to scrap some material off.

turnbuckles on the xray are too long.

you might need to grind the 6x screw heads of the drive pulleys to clear some packs. Just depends how 'wide' they are.

Default Spektrum S6070 Lo-Pro Servo

FYI you will have to dremel down the left servo mount to fit around the wires where they come out of the case on this servo. Finally get to dust of my JRXSR after two months And for some carpet racing on foams

Questions??

What are people using for a baseline carpet rubber tire setup? I have about 10 different setups for carpet/rubber that I have found, and they are ALL so very different, I'm not sure where to start.

I started running the type R back in November. I could never get the car to behave properly. It was always very twitchy and unpredictable. After countless attempts of trying setups and adjustments I was almost ready to give up.

Last night one of the other racers and I were discussing this issue and trying to pinpoint the cause of the ill handling car. I could never get the collars to be even on the shocks, both front and rear were always very different settings. We knew we had a chassis tweak but couldnt get rid of it. Then I remembered that my car wasn't stock any more, I had picked up an Exotek top deck and had had this on the car since day #1.

This morning I went to work on pulling the Exotek top deck off the car and replacing it with the stock top deck. Using only the same 4 screws the Exotek deck used, the 2 on the front bulkheads and 2 on the rear bulkheads. Instantly my chassis tweak was gone. The car now sat flat on my setup board.

Now Im not saying dont use the Exotek part, just be mindful of it affecting things you would never really think about.

I have also not put this car on the track with the original deck back on, I have no idea if my car will drive any better but at least Im starting out with an untweaked chassis.

Outtafocus, I am having the same problem with the stock deck. Trying to get the front belt anywhere near tight enough not to skip, tweaks the chassis. It's really twitchy on the straights, pulls to one side, then the other. I am about to give up on this Losi and get me a used Tc5 or a TOP.

I started with the base rubber setup in the back of the manual. So far I have ditched the JR links and raised the rear diff...if I remember correctly.

If you're overdriving the front or rear, try going back to the standard 42 tooth pulleys. Some track conditions make the overdrive option really difficult to handle and exhibit that wandering phenomenon.

As for belt tightness, it sounds like your belt is worn or the pulley is packed with rubber bits. You can run the belts a bit on the loose side (although you shouldn't) without skipping, and usually it's the rear belt that skips first (because the rear tires get more grip than the fronts under acceleration).

Thank you Greg, I will look into that. I am still on the stock diff pulleys. Anything else you'd recommend inmaking this thing handle better??? No doubt some of it is the dummy behind the remote, but some of it is not.
