Would I be right in saying the JRX-S seems to react to small changes in adjustments in a big way? I'm just figuring with the weight down the center it would seem more likely that the roll center would be very reactive to small adjustments. Maybe a little to reactive?
I've noticed that the driver's setups seem to allow them to drive on the ragged edge at times. Is that more of a personal preference or the way it seems to work best? I know it was kind of hard to do that aggressive of a setup with the XXX-S.

Flat track I believe. I haven't been there yet and they don't really have much for onroad pics on their website. Do you know how the surface is up there?

todge: i would't have taken them as excuses. just wanted to get a feel of what the main concern was in getting up to speed. but im sure with more prep work you guys would have done much better.

on another note, i'd like to second the query wcyote. is the car very responsive to small changes? does a small tweak make a drastic change?

Default Race Schedule?

Yo Todd,

Do you have an itinerary of on-road races you guys are attending this season? The Losi site doesn't have anything updated on the race schedule yet.

wcoyote-Yes the car does react to small changes compared to the XXX-S. To reactive...I don' t think so.

Jon Kerr-They are racing on the banked oval which is concrete. The last time I was up there I used CS 22's and 27's.

JRXS Bill-Yup!!

James-I have a calendar filled out at work.

Todd,

Will be in Scotland in about a week. Near Edinburgh, they race year round on a hardwood gym floor using Schumacher Mini-pins 20mm wide (yellow compound) tires.

Do you have any wisdom for me to pass on to the XXX-S guys?

imprsme-Email me at work. I have it there. [email protected]

JRXSBill-Wow....does not sound like much traction. Maybe a soft setup with some travel might be the best....long camber links.

TracksideTruck-I will check on this and let you know what I hear.
