Actually the JRXS has a better design than the OVa. The mid motor mount is actually 2mm taller than the JRXS, Differentials are actually HPI diff out drives (short side only) and the HPI pulley. Aside form that it's all Ova.
I have been looking on revising the ova, the suspension it has now is very good. the only problems are the C hubs and the knuckels those are all HPI or you can run Yokomo. On mine i actually have a Tamiya F201 suspension palte setup as a front sway bar using Yokomo Hubs and Tamiya C hubs. Rear end is Tamiya Hubs. Ova suspension arms. The car is very balanced and very good in handling it's like a pan car with full suspension. Only draw back is the drive train it is not efficient. I chose the JRXS because it was just like the ova in design just updated but the drive train is of the JRXS is 100% more efficient!!!
Probably i will look into making a car of my own? but at the moment i have my 1/5 RC cars which i am making stuff for now thats taking allot of my time. I have actually quit racign these huge monsters for a year now to do 1/10 scale but i still produce parts for them.
