Todd,

I have had little luck with the Team Setup when it comes to low bite situations. Any suggestions on what to change when the rear end gets too loose for low bite situations? Many thanks.

Default JRX-S setup again

Todd,

I know i just asked u a question about the setup you are running but I have a short follow up. Have you changed anything at all from the Numan setup posted on the Losi website? Also I asked you what the fastest rubbers are and you said sorex......what inserts are best? and what compound tire (27, 32) do you prefer? By the way thanks for the quick response on my last question.

Thanks again!!!

Hey Todd-

Will Losi ever release the 126 tooth spur gear for the JRX-S?

Thanks.

Well, I'm not Todd (at least last I checked), but I believe it is supposed to be released. It is listed in the August New Releases section on Losi's site, part number LOSA3969. I have to admitted I haven't checked the shops for it yet though.

At the last race the only thing I changed is I moved my arms all the way back to get more steering in the middle of the turns.

Normally on Sorex's I like the 36R's the best with outdoor racing. For inserts, I would say the Xenon grays are my favorite with the Yokomo wheel or Tamiya wheel.

Hi Todd,

Maybe you've been asked this already, but are you coming to the Halloween Classic this year?

Haven't raced my JRXS yet, but have done a few practice days with it. Very nice so far, except for the sucky stock servo arms. How about making those out of a stronger plastic? They strip out waaaaaay to easily. Had to put an aluminum servo arm on.

I am not sure if I will be coming out to it. I will be at the Gate on September 11 for the club race and September 15 for practice night. I am coming back for vacation and a wedding.

Servo arm-Yea...I use either the Airtronics arm with the brass collar or the racers edge aluminum servo arm. One thing to think about....its better to break a servo arm than a servo
