I managed to make my car go around the track very well on foam, but for some reason it doesn't much like rubber tire. Feels like driving on ice.

Default JRXS-R drives erratically

Well I got my JR back on the road today but when I give it too much throttle it spins in circles. If I go easy on the throttle it does fine. I just put a brand new set of HPI Vintage tires on it but it still wants to go drifting. I have a Castle Sidewinder Sport 4600KV 36T pinion with stock spur gear. I would like it to go straight so what do I need to check ? Differentials maybe ? Thanks

yes, start with your differentials.

Hey guys!

I'm primarily an offroad racer but I have a nice used Type R I'm setting up for this weekend on carpet. Track is medium sized with medium traction. Any tips on setup, gearing (17.5 no timing with jaco blues), or what parts i should buy for spare? I'm gonna try to get the Xcelorin 3800 in the car by dremeling the steel tray today. Thanks for any help !

You need a front spool, which for a JRXS your local hobby shop is as likely to have as a Faberge Egg or the Ark of the Covenant, so take apart the front diff, pull the balls out of the front pulley, blast it out with degreaser, find a piece of robust cardboard (I used a business card) and cut it out so it fits in the front pulley landing. Clean and roughen the rings, and then reassemble and tighten it down until it slips just a little bit when you torque it with your hands, you want it to slip before it breaks anything.

Check it after your first run, and if its still good this should calm the car down a lot, it fixed my cars tendency to have the back come around at high-speed turn-in.

Well first some questions, what's in the car?? do you have a spool up front or a diff? the spools were slipper spools and can easily be stripped, so you might only have 3 wheel drive. If it's a diff, chances are you're overpowering it as well, and need to get the spool setup.

It's diff front and rear. Is the spool discontinued? Or just hard to find?

Is there a way to get a gear diff in? What is the advantage of the spool?

THanks guys!

No gear diffs due to the wide diff layout they used on the car. The spool is just a different pulley, the part # in the back of the manual. Spool locks the front wheels together for better acceleration. Also replace the hub that the diff screws into, they strip.

Front One-Way, Rear Ball Diff.

stiff rear springs

LTC-R body

Buy as many front C hubs and steering blocks as you can afford, 4deg I think.

Car works better with the steel tray for battery even though it will be quite over the weight limit. CG is very high otherwise.

I wonder how this compares to a TC5 in stock class. i like my tc5 but i wouldn't mind picking up another car to play with that's a little bit different.
the layout of this one looks pretty ideal.

Default Loose exiting corners

well after reading I can't wait to get home and see if I have the pulleys set for overdrive and to try to lock my front diff and see if it cures my problems my car is on rails except for corner exit if I get on it too fast it will loop out, I have been running oval and this car is amazing..love it

On another note I bought and additional jrx-s for parts but after receiving this car I can't tear it apart it looks brand new under the dust if anyone needs a really nice car I may sell this one the gloss is not even scuffed on chassis yet lol

AND OUR WORST PROBLEM BATTERIES HEREIS WHAT I AM RUNNING WITH ONLY MINOR TRIMMING OF BATTERY LID AND LIGHT PULLEY SANDING

VENOM 5000 2s 50c battery fit great after removing to raised areas on front of lipo tray really woke the car up amd it's heavy I can post part number if anyone needs it I found a online shop who has a great price on them moorehobbies.com

Thunderpower 5300 65c pro race fits good battery leads a little tight against my upper deck but I may try some other options with routing

PARMA bumper. First thing you should make sure you have. It will save your hubs and arms up front. I've gotten to be good enough to keep the car off the wall most of the time, but still like to turn in early once in a while. This bumper has saved my front end more times than I care to count.
