Here's some feedback, "Wicked wee car"
I have the E4 RSII Evo, love it, nice car, was looking at running an ARC R10 in our stock class at our club, then got wind of my local distributor looking at doing another small order for TM gear, he was looking at an RTR just to bash, I said to check the new JS out and glad he did.
1st, They are cheap, a great price tag for a car that looks great, builds great and drives great.
2nd, Ease of Build, like the E4, everything is in its individual bag, making the build run as smoothly as possible, you don't open another bag till you have finished the first, the carbon is of good quality (yes it is a carbon/FG sandwich, but hey who cars lol) and everything lines up nicely, the plastic bulkheads aren't an issue, as the TM plastic is SOLID, the only wee thing on the build was that I left the center layshaft mounts loose on the chassis untill I had the top deck screwed down, to keep them nice and straight and eliminate any binding.
3rd Driving, out of the box setup wasn't the best for my home track as we have like NO TRACTION, and I mean NO TRACTION, but after one run it was on the setup board, tweaked and back on the track on fire, drives just like the E4, so neutral in mid corner, just holds its line, yet so directional at entry, just nice.
All in all, the only thing it needs is alloy hexes, but you can get them from anywhere for next to nothing. It is a great car at a great price, who cares if it doesn't have all the flashy alloy blingy bulkheads, it is solid, drives well and responds to setup change nicely. After the one raceday so far with it, two other guys are looking at dialling one up also, it just can't be beat for value and performance. The best thing is that from a "Fathers" point of view, it isn't going to break the bank if I wanted to get my kids into racing, and they would be starting with a solid piece of kit.
Oh and it doesn't come with sway bars, but the kits for these aren't dear either, and most sellers would swindle a deal for you anyway.
