I have couple of guys at my track running x-ray T2 but like they said it has tweak issue. they all prefer FK05 than a T2 just my 2 cents. Goodluck with your new car.

Get a car then stick with it. And Be one with the car LOL......
Whats your setup tof the BD on carpet and asphalt?

Just curious how come no one has posted opinions about the JRX-S? I don't run on-road right now, but I considered this car when I was thinking about getting into on-road. Any thoughts??

JRXS is a decent car imo. Definitely better than TC4, Reguarding handling. The Losi has an added benefit , most hobbyshops carry parts. A big plus. The new crop of cars based on the Tamiya 415 are all the rage at this time ( T2, corally, Yok, etc...). The yok has some nice added features it just has no local support anywhere that I am aware of.

The JRXS hasn't had the kind of success at major races that it needs to be a commercial success for Losi.

The losi looks very inovative but thats about it. I know some one with one and he has only had trouble with it and can't get to handle properly when running mod ( he now runs his old FK05 in mod). If you are only going to run stock or maybe 19 then a losi would be alright but when you strap a mod motor it just doesn't handle.

I don't think you will ever regret buying the T2. Make sure you get the aluminum front hubs and blocks. After you get that the car is pretty indestructible. The only thing that I didn't like about the T2 was that they went back to the smaller bearings for the axles. I love the huge bearings in the FK05. They take a lot more of a beating on the boards before they get damaged. I went from driving a TC3 to a XXX-S and didn't find much difference. When I moved to the xray I went from D level mains to consistently being in the B mains. The car seems to be much more consistent and doesn't get sloppy as easily as the other chassis that I have had after a couple encounters with the boards. Enjoy your new T2 .

The T2 is like a un-hopped 415MSX...

Plastic shocks on a Top level car?! Whats up??

You're not wrong there. On the FK05 it took me 5 attempts of getting the air out of them and man how do you stop the the oil leaking out of them... The trf ones are really easy to build.

( i jumped straight from the top of the C/bottom of B, to the bottom/middle of A mains) just from switching cars, about 85% of the guys that had xrays last year have gone to the t2. even the guy i figured was the last guy to move from the tc3, went to an 05, i now have one of the older cars in the club.

get an xray, you WONT regret it. wish i could afford the T2.

with all the fast guys in the club with the t2 good look making the a main

The shocks are plastic so if you have a hard crash the shock body will break rather than bend the shock shaft and cause bad handling. I think Xray make aluminium shock bodies but non of the pros run them. The xray shocks are extremely easy to build and never wear out( I'm only 15 and I found it heaps to build them and set the correct rebound).

Driving the t2 on tarmac is like racing a jelly mold, i had a cyclone bought a T2 which was good indoor on rubbers then tried it outdoor on tarmac, no matter what i did it felt the same, very very flexi!!!

I went back to the cyclone and i am sorry i ever bought the T2.
