On asphalt for the most part we liked the opposite, standard front arm and long rear arm.
So all we really need to do to finish our outdoor season will be to change springs correct? Or will the car only come with long front arms and regular rears? Thanks for the info Andrew!

How is the build quality and maintenance on these? Last Losi I had was the original XXXS and I was not impressed due to easily stripped joles and easily broken arms. Are the diffs going to be easy to get to like on the T2 and some other newer cars?

If my JRS-X wasn't such a pain to wrench on, I probably wouldn't have sold it. Any plans on making the Type R a little easier to wrench on? The boards here are brutal, aswell as the other drivers (which explains the boards).

The longer front arm helps mellow out the front end on the rug, made it so even I could drive on carpet

Mike, when you fill out setup sheets, can you record your droop setting in universal uptravel instead? Wish everyone would do that. Makes it hard for the guy trying to copy or to go off that setup without the universal uptravel. Only way we could get the universal uptravel is to have the exact same size tires, set our droop setting to the setup sheet, and then measure the uptravel of teh chassis. But that's gay!

OK sorry, I just didn't want to start a debate.

well I know about 5 serious racers who got xxx cr's

they love the car, but everytime I ask them if they've come across any issues.

they all say they hate the EA3 material. "It flexes too much, it's not as strong"

Some of these opinions are from dedicated hard core losi lifers.

ask "casper" on here what he thinks of the EA3 stuff

One of my good friends loves the car and has yet to brake a EA3 part, But he is also the best driver I personally know and doesn't make many mistakes.

I'm not saying casper is a bad driver, because he's not.

but here's my point

::::

for parking lots, more flexy arms are probably better

for carpet??? dont you want the car to be stiffer

come to think of it what on the car would be EA3 material besides the arms?

I guess its a good option as long as graphite ones are still avalible.

the strength of the EA3 material is certainly being debated in that xxx cr thread

Its always good to have options, I would just prefer the car came with graphite arms, as I have only broken 2 in the year I've had the car, both times completly my fault, but they have diffentely taken some pounding!!

I know about the problems some are having with EA3 on the 'CR' and they are being addressed, but the EA3 parts for the JRXS have been extremely durable up to this point. I believe the kit will have EA3 arms, c-hubs, spindles, and hub carriers.

I believe they are going to try to do a VLA style arm if it's strong enough, so you will have narrow and wide pivot points on one arm, less to buy.

Still wondering about this, I am going to be buying a new car shortly and I am trying to make my decision.

Can someone explain what EA3 is, and why it is being used over graphite?

Are there any examples of where it has been used before?
