Adam, get Haynes setup from IIC. I ran the same setup and it worked pretty damn good. You can try it on yours as well.

It would have to allow the screw to turn and screw all the way in but is this something that could be done? If it could it would save time looking for the screws and may even save a screw or 3.
That is interesting for I have never lost a screw on any of my cars. Even on the old car the screws stayed in on the battery tray. Do you have the standoffs stripped out maybe?

I haven't even used it yet, actually it's the Gen-X10. Just thought it would be easier at the pit when removing the battery. 4 little screws on the pit table can go missing real quick. If they stay in the tray they can't get lost.

adam: i would ask the fast guy running the jrxs-r at your track. he's pretty cool and would be willing to help if asked.

you're running a tamiya, so i would consider converting.

Haha, not for me man, I don't drive an R anymore, I just get beat by them.

Actually, you're the first person we mentioned to go to for setup help since you've got things working so well. I've been thinking about trying to grab some popular setups for the cars newer guys are showing up with so we can get them in the ball park and save some frustration. Maybe make a some photocopies of each and keep them on the front counter or something. We've had a lot of folks show up lately that have never run carpet (or rubber tire), and struggle a bit with how different things are.

actually someone from Losi team told me that thing is "in-stock" at horizon's CA warehouse since this week, have your LHS place an order.

I know I m waing for one

For a rookie considering getting in to TC racing at a club level, is JRXS-R a difficult car to set up?

D'oh. I already placed an order. At least now I'll have a set of splits crystals too.

I just lay the screws with the tray when I take it out so I know where they are at. I personally never use all four since there is a lip on the front of the tray to keep it in the chassis. I have been running like that for a long time with no issues and have not lost either of my two screws and I generally run two cars. I am guessing the GenX10 is making use of the lip on the tray as well, so you should only need two screws as also.

2 screws works for me but I'm, still going to try my trick. My dad is my mechanic and the easier I can make it for him the better (He's not as young as he use to be)

Default changing car

until now i have been using a very old saddle pack car, because i am not convinced that the current popular layout for TCs is the best, until i saw the jrxs type R. now i need some input from you guys before i buy this car. Is it really a step up in performance compared to 415,416, cyclone, xray because of its central battery and motor layout? does it really have the best cornering speed? also, why dont i see any spares being sold on ebay? is it really that unpopular?

It is so popular, everyone buys them so fast. I barely ever see a used Type-R up for sale because everyone loves them. That is why, if you see an opportunity to buy a Type-R used, jump on it because they are real popular and an opportunity to buy a car that retails new for $440 + tax, for $200, you can't go wrong.

No spares = very little breakage!

I've got a whole heap of spares (enough to make almost another car), but the only ones I have been using are the suspension arms.... even that, once they were changed out to the newer arms, never had a breakage!

The central motor and batt layout is excellent for 50/50 front/rear and left/right weight distribution. In regards to if the car is quicker than the 415, 416, cyclone or Xray is entirely based on your setup.... Any car can be quick in the hands of the right driver!!
