This thread is a good start for general info. I would stock up on certain parts such as diff components, an extra pair of C-hubs, a-arms. I have also managed to break spokes on the stock wheels. Besides that - it's been a good runner and with proper setup, can be driven on the track.

The first mod I would suggest is to change / augment the battery holders. Using the AE RC10 battery cups is a good way to go.

I finally got finished putting my ofna back together, happy with it. Trying to figure out how to post pictures (assuming it will let me if I have to post a link as I don't think I've met the post requirement of 10 yet).
Things I changed:
1. Complete "team driver" carbon fiber chassis w/towers from strc
2. Universals on rear and CVA fronts
3. Novak 6.5 motor with Turnigy 60A ESC (had a 9t D6 brushed motor, got tired of truing, running a Novak GTB but changed to Turnigy in case I want to strap in a 3s)
4. HPI belted x-patterns with 6mm offset HPI corsa wheels
5. Associated battery cups

also re-greased the diff gears and oiled bearings while it was taken apart

I think this rig is ready for the next face off with my friends HPI Pro 4!! (we always battle it out since we seems to be the better drivers of our group)

well, I had posted here a while ago asking about this car...
i really wanted it, but then I lost interest in on-road.
a little while ago, I got it back, and picked up a Traxxas 4-tec for dirt cheap BRAND NEW from my LHS...
I want shaft drive, so I'm coming back to the jl10e! it's the nicest, cleanest looking car I can find for under $150, and it looks SOLID!
and now I already have everything I need to run it, except a body! (not NEEDED, but it would be nice )

I'll probably buy one once I sell off my 4-tec!
nice looking rides you guys!

Default I wanna be one of the cool kids too!

I got my JL-10e over the summer, and got pieces when paychecks allowed. Ended up with a Novak ESC and Ballistic 21.5 (local rules for VTA), and it runs pretty well. Probably will run better once I learn how to drive!

My question is what kind of steering servos folks are using out there. I had a basic S3004 lying around when I was building it, so that's what I used. I figure that someone out there has some good suggestions that don't involve me dropping $100 on a Savox.

Here's a pic, hope you like it!

Looks awesome, Dan!

As for servos, I've been trying a few from my old stash (all are "analog" and are greater than 15 years old). I've also tried a couple of the super cheap Chinese units you can find on eBay and Hobbypartz and I'll just say this: STAY AWAY! While I'm having decent luck with a medium torque, high speed, cheap EXI servo in my SC truck, the others seem to be on the verge of self destruction. And one of them refuses to center itself consistently. So basically I've had enough of me being cheap and will probably spring for a Savox SC-1251MG, which by performance servo standards is inexpensive. My next choice is a Futaba S9551. Not that it concerns our GT cars, but I'll probably plop in a Savox SC-1258TG in my SC truck when my budget allows.
