With just the stock layshaft, you can only run the JRXS spurs (translation: 118 teeth and above) while the Flying Fox piece is drilled for normal spur gears. It is also a bit wider than the stock unit, allowing wider LiPo cells to fit. My car has the stocker, so I have to be careful which LiPos I buy because if it is too wide it just flat out wont fit.

ah okay. Do you have any pics? Right now my vehicles are setup with the PRS Adapters on both (the new one appears that way) So i can run non losi spurs.

For lipos pretty much running shorties after modifying the metal lipo plate I have. The new car to me at least lol has a metal plate that is only the edges essentially.

It sounds like you're set if you have that adapter, I keep my JRXS-R ready to go in modified foam set to grind rubber into my local track... and have fun while I do it.
If my opinion is of any use, I know you spent a good chunk of change on that nice metal tray but I wouldn't use it unless you are way under legal weight, and if you do I would only put the back screws into it so it gets a little better flex for rubber. Do you run the stock top deck?

Am I the only one who thinks modified foam sedan is easier to drive than 17.5 rubber?

the biggest thing I see getting back into touring is that with the whole rubber tire stuff cars seem to have way too much steering lol. We usually fought push back in the foam days of the TC3 / XXXS

Rubber is always lose and hard to drive on anything other than incredible traction, I have a TC6.1 that is just terrible in keeping the back behind the front on slippery carpet.

Is this the same guys you bought yours from?
Losi JRXS type R drifter, also can set up for TC

With a good setup rubber sedans are nice and easy to drive. I can get the rear planted and make the car push or free up the rear and get the car to ride on its nose. Both can be made to be smooth and predictable. Its all in the setup.

Get a T4, TC6.1 or Spec-R and you will achieve this easily. If you have one of these cars and you can't get it to handle the way you want something is wrong, bent or off setup wise.

Rubber is the worst thing that ever happened to sedan. You need a damn well prepared surface to run sedan with rubber, and I don't have one, so the car blows. But the foam car is still fun.

Just curious. A lot of TC now are basically the same layout. I see a lot of "everyone is copying x and x". But the jrx-s type -r is not like the others yet I hear from locals they say its a old design and not competitive. I'm lost. So TC racers don't want a copy yet someone goes out side the box and its not competitive?

It is competitive and it is an older design. It never went through a major revision. 2 years ago Horizon (Losi) discontinued the kit after not really supporting it. It was the last carry over from the old company that was Losi Racing. I for one think it deserves a second look.

I think it depends heavily on different folks perception of "competitive". Although, I'm far from a fast guy I got to the point where I was having a very difficult time getting the rear to stay planted to keep up with corner entry pace of fellow racers with newer cars. I race indoor carpet. The car simply wasn't designed for that. It is still an awesome car, but it is outdated and it's competitiveness relies heavily on the talent with the radio. Just my 2 cents.

Looking at the info in the manual the Type R appears to have been designed for indoor foam carpet. Which, requires a stiffer setup than rubber carpet. I put on the Exotek top chassis brace right away and it appears to help from what I can tell alot with more flex.

I think if losi looked at the design again, they could make it very competitive.

Cain is right. Just taking off the normal top plate braces makes a huge difference. And I need to get those top decks!
