Yes, and i'm not sure i'm going to do that. I was tempted to do it so i could get rid of two more wrenches in my kit but some of the walls are already thin enough!

Interesting note, for as "old" as everyone makes out this car to be, I found a doc that I made when I got the car, 3/2007 so 3 years, sure that's old in x-ray years, but really not bad I owned 4 of them in that time too, lol.

Well, just picked up one of these sweet looking JRX-S Type Rs. Got a lot of reading to do. Looking forward to tinkering with it.

Driveshaft outdrives run through the tubes, and would be the same items as supplied with a Xray Spec-R diff.

I'm already investigating getting some made, just it's taking time...

very good idea!
waiting for you!!

The usual springs rates work fine. I run 17.5lbs front and 15.0lbs rear springs everywhere on rubber tires and its always good. These are the losi springs by the way which are shorter than most.

About the only things extra you need are the FF Layshaft, Mcmaster thrust bearing and a bag of shims. .

Thanks.

Picked up a roller in very good condition for a very good price. I plan to race it in RCGT. For peace of mind I want to rebuild the diffs, the front feels funny, it is very tight but then gets a little easier and then tight again as I counter rotate it, the back feels a little gritty. So, the question is what is a good starting point for adjusting these once they are rebuilt? I will be running on high traction pavement but with HPI Rubber wheels, the instruction are not too clear.

I have it on the bench now and will go over the whole thing. I will probably just lock it up tight and have a semi Spool for the front. Once I rebuild them though what is a good start point for tightness? Again the instruction book is vague.

Just received my JRX-S type R today. First thing I had to do is run it through the dish washer to get the drool off of it.

I have to say this car is really good. I run asphalt on Sunday and carpet on Tuesday and all I change on the chassis is the ride height.
The car is super fast and just shocks me every time. The car is so responsive with just the smallest change. The best way I have found to cut down lap time for me is to play around with the roll center height. I am running low rear with a .050 and .075 in height which is magic on both surfaces!
I am going to try a different chassis for this fall but I may be disappointed.
