Does the jx have the same sleeve material as the vspec? I know the jx is a abc sleeve and I was thinking the vspec was made of a different material? Can anyone educate me on this?

Mo-Bo0st that was one of the more simpler layouts I've seen there in a while but I havent raced there in a while either but layout at rev is not the problem that dirt changes from wet to dry like you wouldnt believe & becomes a totaly different track.The dirt at rev is I guess called DG,no matter how clean the track is if it gets dry it gets very skatey & the tires knock loose what looks like little sand pebbles

Yes most of the pros pretty much live there. That was a kind of big race but they randomly show up in groups like that during any given club race night.

Dana changes the track pretty often & sometimes the whole track is nothing but 30' triples but always with a huge straight & the use a radar gun at the end of it sometimes that you can see from the stand.

You become very fast very quickly running there alot but have to deal with 100+ people jammed shoulder to shoulder almost every club race night wich is why I dont race there any more, I'm in the hobby to reduce stress not add to it. The classes are also a little skewed there a little like a mid to upper sportsman at rev is usually considered mid pack expert level at any smaller club track.Notice I didnt use the word sandbag but I believe some one in the begginer class should hit the pipes some times & blow at least 1 corner per race.

Good information about the Rev.

I also might have a distorted view on RC tracks being that The Nitro Pit is one of my local tracks.

sorry Mo-Boost .....testing has already been done. Tony and myself had the privilege to see the graphs early,,,and all I can say is you'll find a JX in either one of our cars.

I'm pretty sure the wasp is just a re bagged picco/jammin... The JX is a 5 port V Spec, with a coated crank. well worth the extra cash

I believe you can't go wrong to buy the grp I got about 2 gallons on mine and no signs of a bearing going out or anything. Plus I can almost get 10 minutes on a tank.

Yep,
The surface is what makes the track tricky. Its packed medium traction during the day, and loose loamy at night. It keeps you guessing what you car will do next, unless your setup is super dialed. The video doesn't show some of the double step down action while your turning, or the smaller stuff that can jump up and bite ya... LOL! Its funny when I go to other tracks after running here, I'm always amazed how much easier it is to get around on a higher traction surface. This is the home testing track for many manufacturers as many are local. You know what happens when the Pro drivers get tons of track time..... they get super fast!!!!!! Then a Joe BillyBob like me shows up and gets smoked. LOL!

Its still fun racing the fast guys, and I've learned a ton about what makes them fast after reviewing 100's of hours of race video in slow motion,.. over & over. I can really see what their suspension is doing on the track and try to get my stuff looking and working similar. But when it comes to motors, they always seem to get me. When I ran my RB C6BBT modified's I could actually gain on them on the straight but the C6 made too much power for the infield.

Its hard to decide a new OS Speed or JX21....? Like many of you times are tough financially for me, so that $500.00 tag is a bit much. Same old chit.. wife got a new car last week, wants a baby this week, a new driveway, new carpet, new clothes, new shoes, new purses (yes plural), and it never ends...

LOL!

I'm running the 2060, and yes it could be tuning. I was also wondering if a different gear ratio might suit the Speed better...?

Hmmm

sick results! I'm going down tomorrow to mod and break in my new JX. Tony do you know if the p5 JX plug is a NEW plug , or did ninja just want to keep them in numeric order, and the p5 is actually a p6?
