Also I could use some suggestion on a motor and ESC ?? I'm just going to run the car on the street for now, no racing. Thanks

I would re-check everything there, bud. I know for a fact my pit bud was using a 645 in his. He later switched to a 8711. I am using a ace 1015 with a metal ribbed case and it fits. Go back to the manual and pay attention to the mounting, no reason it should not fit.

Let me rephrase that. If I send a email a week asking for status on my order I EXPECT a response...

Anybody know where the low roll center block +.060 washer puts you at? Is it mid roll center? I bought a gently used car with front and rear set up this way for indoor rubber....

Still here and I honestly do my best to get back to folks as soon as possible often on Sunday, at 11pm whenever I get the messages. I have them all routed to my phone so no matter where I am I can and do respond.

I really appreciate everyone's patience with this process and extend my sincerest apologies. I've always made it clear that I'm here to help and answer questions w/ the best information I have. Paul also does his level best to get everything worked out asap.

I will have layshafts soon as Paul said and will email and process them the instant I get them in my hands.

Please any discomfort or info needed, my phone number is at the bottom of every receipt and I answer or return (if I can't take it at that instant in time) every call I get call me I'll answer.

I guess the deal was to good to be true was ordering a package what would put ceramic balls and thrust in my Type R. Still waiting on a tracking number from AXIOM.

Can someone post the link to the buildup which showed the out of box modifications the JRX needs (ie chassis grinding). I can't find it and can't work out the correct search terms to do so.

Further, What will I need to do to get to a FDR of 4.0 since I will be running a 21.5T brushless in a VTA style class next year. I assume I will have to buy a smaller spur as my largest pinion is only 36T and that gives me an FDR of 6.5.

Thanks.

I run a Flying Fox layshaft and Xray spurs in either a 104 or 108 tooth which allows me to gear quite tall (into the mid 3's) with 50+ pinions.

Cheers,
Mike

The 58T pinion fits without issues?

I have a PRS spur adapter coming, but was wondering what you would recommend would be a good spur size to buy. I want to get down to a FDR of 4.0.

I was thinking I could get a 70T spur so it would fall within my pinion range (up to 35T).

Would that fit?

Here is the link I used to build my JRXS.

http://www.thard.co.uk/

Really wish that guy hadn't given up on the Losi. He had some great info, and his site had great build tips.

Yes, I ran huge pinions all the way up until boost and turbo came out in the Tekins and you didn't need it anymore.

I'd suggest the FF layshaft over the PRS I had some issues w/ themand slop on the drive pin. w/ that small a spur you won't eb able to get the motor close enough to it, i tried. You are going to have to get larger pinions.

Sorry for the spam, but if someone in the US is looking for the layshaft, I have a new one for sale.

What is the smallest spur that will fit and still allow the pinion to reach the motor?

Would have to break out the calculator for.pinion size but you want low 80's for the spur year (48p).

Looks like I will have to go for a massive 58T 64P pinion.
