Does anyone else have this problem? I'm going through rebuild kits like they are going out of fashion.

Are you using the losi shrink tube? The thick clear stuff? And also are you grinding out the inner part of the c hub so they clear ? Cause in 2.5 years of running this car I never once had a problem with lcds and I would run them basically untouched for months at a time or until I had a problem.

I'm the only one running losi at our track unfortunately.
I'll try a shorter screw in the bottom and i have a set of hubs that have been dremeled out, will give them a try.

Looks like we are going to have some decent Type-R representation at the NC State race!

I'll keep you guys posted on our results !!

Well, quick report back from the past weekend... sufice to say, not the most inauspicous start with the new car.. but more down to a simple lack of time with it than anything else. By the time we got our heads round the issues, it was finals times, so a bit late... but the lap times were there

Anyway, ended up on the following setup which should be a pretty good base to work on for the rest of the season. Pushes a little into the corners at the moment, but have full saturday of testing planned, so should be able to dial that out.

Ed,

Id advise going to the #1 location on the steering rack, and put a 1 degree front pivot on, you will be very happy with the results

Default JR verse Non JR link

Hi there.
I'm sure it has been debated at length else where in this thread,
but can you guys give me the theory/explaination of JR verse NonJR top links.Longer and lower or shorter and taller top outter links.
and why,if so, these roll center changes effect the JRXS-R differently to other chassis.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried stiffer springs. The Losi seems to like stiffer springs compared to most other cars.

My opinion: by taking off your JR link you have a link so short that you get a lot of camber gain. This is probably why those who like the standard link like it. Normally shorter links give more reactivity, less roll and a bit less mid corner grip. But we all know the losi doesn't always follow whats normal.

I have found that I get more overall front grip with the JR link. I think a lot has to do with the conditions though. In OZ we normally run in low grip asphalt. In the USA I am told there can be so much grip that marshals have to be carefull not to lose their shoes! Most people from the US seem to say that running a standard link increases steering.

Ed, try a thicker sway on the rear. I had a nightmare last year running the type r in the nats. There was no-one running one so gave up on it for this season.

Do any of you Aus guys have a nice setup for low grip asphalt?

Cheers for the suggestions guys, I'll be adding them to the rather long list of items to test this weekend! Still learning the car, plenty to go through
