This car can still lay down with modern cars no problem. If you've never raced the car with LiPo and brushless before be sure to get a shorty pack because full-size packs don't clear the rear bulkhead, and get a motor with a tapered endbell so it will clear the left side rear hinge pin mount.

Good luck.

I already have a brushless system in it.

My lipo batt is kind of old (maybe 5-6 years) and I'm looking for a new one.

Thanks for the advice. I will look for a shorty pack. However, there are so many batt on the market.

Do you have a good but cheap lipo to suggest me?

PS: yeah, losi car will be excellent for club race

You can use Team Associated TC3 caster blocks in a pinch.

or even better Xray c-hubs. You will have to scrape some plastic away to make it fit.

TC3 4 degree blocks are discontinued, but 0 and 2 degree ones are available. TC4 4 degree blocks are still available too.

3 weeks ago, I went racing at my local track with my JRXS type r. I was in the sedan class 17.5. I was missing speed and my setup was not 100% ok. I had some trouble in the corner. It was still fun.

Last Sunday, I decided to race again with my losi in the USGT 21.5. I made some adjustment to my setup and the car was handling perfectly. Yes, I was again missing speed but I was using an old 21.5 that someone gave it to me. Also, my FDR was not accurate. I changed the pinion twice during the day and I did gain some speed but not enough.

Next race, I should have a new 21.5 (I wish I will gain some speed) and I will also adjust my FDR to make it faster.

It is fun to see that my old losi is still fun and easy to drive. Maybe by the end of the racing season, it will be competitive

Great to hear.

One thing I found about my Type R is that there was no real drawback to running the hardest swaybars, and they will keep the chassis from dragging which can be a serious issue, especially in the very back. If the car is erratic, or will loop out in corners for no apparent reason, the chassis touched the rug and you lost grip.

The online hobby store had a sale on receivers, so my Type R is ready to roll again. Ill give it a bash in 13.5 and maybe some mod fun runs as well when I get to race again.

Looks pretty good, I would mount your ESC behind your battery pack, nice and tidy arrangement that my car has been in for a few years now.

to do that, I will need to remove the fan off my ESC since it is just a little bit to high to fit.

do you think, that I should remove the fan?

Maybe remove the fan from the ESC and attach it to that graphite upper plate instead.
