Default Exotech top plate

Hello I am new to on road as I bought a type r from ebay to run VTA and I got the exoteck top plate. Here are some pics. I ran it with the stock top plate and the exotech and I found with the exotech it was alot less twitchy more forgiving. Anyway it works you can use the banna style plugs with no problem but it doesnt solve the clearance issue from the layshaft mount.I use a TRAKPOWER 5600 60c 2s with no modification to the battery or chassis its nice and slim and I outran a 5600 65c revtech with it, but who knows if the other guy knew what he was doing anyway. Anyhow that battery works and works good with either top plate.In the pics is a protech battery that I did have to modify to completly fit.

Default Final Drive

Oh I forgot my track where I run requires a 4.2 final drive. I am running a 118 spur and 51 pinion with the stock 1.83 internal gear ratio. It comes out to 4.23 FDR. If you put the optional 41 diff pulleys you can get it to 4.2 exactly but I havent tried that. I emailed Tory from skyrocket and they say they will have the front spool and layshaft available at the end of march. So in the meantime I just stocked up on spur gears. If you check your motor screws the spurs should last awhile. I love this car as I kick the crap out of those new expensive rigs with gear diffs and other new technology.

Does this car and the old JRXS share the same spur gear? A buddy of mine wants to run his in VTA. We need to gear it to the moon. I have my Pro 4 geared 52/73. What gearing do we need to get his car close to that?

I am new to this and every VTA race I go to requires a 4.2 FDR with a 21.5 motor. You can run the jrx s spur gears they are the same just the type r has a layshaft that is milled down to reduce weight. I am assuming you mean a tekin pro 4 motor, but I dont know what you mean by 52/73

We're all using 25.5 motors, no restriction on gearing. When I say Pro-4, I'm talking about the HPI Pro 4 car. Its an older chassis, but still works great. I'm trying to help my buddy get into the class. He has an original JRXS, not the type R. We're trying to figure out what aftermarket spurs fit, since the stock gear is way too big.

I am pretty sure there is a 118 that fits both, I think we fit 1 51 with that spur, its in the low 4.x range, otherwise you need to find a PRS adapter to mount other spurs, then we typically ran a 108.

Will we be able to get a top speed close to this with that spur? (red Mustang in front)

Looked on their site, item looks to be out or possibly no longer in production. Thinking about maybe picking one of these cars up, if found cheap. Anyone else produce one (adapter) ?

R40Victim, What battery is your friend planning to use in his jrxs. I have both the original and the type r cars but have not found a lipo that fits the original jrxs chassis.

I have both as well and found that an old 5200 and a new 5000 "soft lipo pack" from promatch will work great in the old JRXS mid motor. You will need to buy the battery from Jeff and then take the hard case off and install shrink wrap onto the battery to make it a soft case; just watch were it is placed, the pulleys can rub into the shrink wrap. I used 4" skrink wrap and it worked great. The best comment I have had so far with this car is "What car is that?" Still hangs with the new Xrays, but had to change to a new car for 17.5 TC. I loved this car and I hope the R is just as good and fast.

On the JRXS-R I found that both the 5200 and the 5000 hard case work, just the back of the battery sticks out about 1-2mm at most. The only thing is to remove the top deck and install the battery that way. A bit of a pain but it works. I have not had the R out on the track but it looks like it will be fine.

R40Victim, what part of Alabama are you in and also how did you get your name. PM me. I am in Birmingham and I race at OneLug Raceway. I run 17.5 TC and I am looking at running the R in the VTA class.

Thanks

Chris

I have been running a 2200mah from a mini in the jrxs and have had no problems getting a full size lipo to fit in the type R. If you like the jrxs you will deff like the type R. I use my jrxs for asphalt and the type R's I run on carpet. i have 1 for our "spec" touring using a reedy radon brushed motor 1 for 17.5 boosted and one for USVTA. I also have one converted to a dirt latemodel ( but havent had a chance to try)

He's using a Hobby King Nano pack of about 3000 mah. Its a pretty small pack, but should be more than sufficient for VTA duty.

I'm actually in NW Fl. I'd love to race on carpet, but I've got a new baby on the way and will be lucky to keep racing... I've been stocking up on parts, tires and supplies, so that "in theory" I can keep racing. I'm really not sure at this point.
