that is the parts list for the XXXS. All of the bearings will be available through Horizon regardless of a pic being avaiable. Just scroll down and get the part number form the losi parts list.

BTW= Most, if not all of the bearings carry over to the JRXS.

I Think youll need the following (think, could be wrong) Its been a while since I have had one of these cars..

2= LOSA6910 (2 per pk)
10= LOSA6907 (dont know how many per pack)
2= LOSA6916 (idler pully bearings- i think=== youll need two.)

Thanks Keith, I had gone to the Losi site but didn't find them. I guess I was looking for them to be in a set. Thanks for straightening me out.
See ya

As it turns out you can't order from the Losi site. No problem, I ordered a set from one of the Ebay vendors. I didn't want to order from Hong Kong, but there is a Canadian site I'll give a try.

Thanks again.

no, you cant order direct from Losi. You can take those part numbers to Horizon or your LHS and they will set you up.


NP.. i dont think they come in a set. OEM is good stuff, my JRXS is still free as can be and its going on 6 months old.

Acer has been around a long time. I cant speak for their quality as I have always used oem stuff..... but im sure youll get a good product should you go that route. Eye candy in ads is not a testimony of product.. but more of somthing to keep the name in your head. You wont forget acer now.. so their marketing obviously works

See good marketing. Why wont you support them? Seems like too much effort and thought to be worth it. I mean, in a sense=== that they have what you need and can easily contacted... and to blatently make effort to buy somewhere else where youll have to search and research.... just because they have a girl in a swim suit... or somthing to that effect.. seems extreme.

Ebay bearings work fine too.. now that I think of it.. i think i bought some once..

Just a point of view. No offense intended..

Don't forget BOCA BEARINGS in FL. you have a BIGGER selection there than ACER and you can get a whole set for the XXX-S. They have metal sheilded, rubber seals ceramics, economy ceramics now or hybrids as there called. Try Bocabearings.com or do a search for them in your browser if that doesn't work. I think the Acer bearing are ok too though, but I didn't buy ceramics since I have a tendency to hit things or be hit.

I think I have brand new Boca Ceramic bearings for the outdrive and wheel bearings and layshaft of a JRXS. if they are the same size as on the xxxs-I will be happy to sell them at a killer price. Let me know via PM.

Also-I ran HOdges Reedy ROC set-up today on brusghed concrete with 138g's and CS27's (NO traction additive on concrete, a bit dirty) and car felt awesome. I dot know how mnay race on concrete, but the ROC set-up is AWESOME to start with.
Only chnage was blue rear springs instead of green.

Battery problem? No. If you car is not tracking straight when you accelerate smoothly you have a tweek/wieght distribution or servo problem (assuming your car is mechanically sound and in good repair). In the back of your manual it discusses the various adjustments that will get you going straight.

Did you build the XXXS yourself or buy it assembled? If you bought it assembled I would recommend tearing the whole car down and rebuild looking for stripped holes, bad bearings etc. With the manual in hand.

If you somehow have 3 wheel drive your car will pull to one side on acceleration. Check cvd's to make sure they have the pin installed correctly. A loose setscrew will let the pin move and can get lost. Another item to check is a loose lug nut.
