48T pinion/78T spur, 64 pitch. FDR=4.06. If you're running 48 pitch, try 36/58, should be about the same FDR.

FDR at my track is 6.92. So this is what I came up with
29/82*2.5=7.06

Will the hpi wheels & tires for the vta class fit? Also what body for the vta will fit? I know the front wheels are 26mm & 31mm rears. As for body goes, I was thinking about the hpi camaro.

I don't think you'd have any problem with any of the VTA legal bodies. Wheels are designed to fill out those bodies so no problems with those either. I've mounted HPI 68 Camaro and 2 different Mustang bodies with no problems.

Thanks. I didnt think the body would be a problem. What about the wheels & tires? I know the fronts are 26mm & the rears are 31mm. Does anyone race the JL10 as a vta? If so are you using the 25.5 brushless? How does it perform compared to an associated losi xray? I dont have the car yet but will be ordering it tomorrow. So far I heard alot of good things about it. Everything new has some flaws but they can all be worked out. Looking forward to getting this. What servo is the best for the car?

I ordered mine the other day with the 25.5 brushless motor, hpi wheels and tires, and a 69 camaro body I will let you know when I get it and if the wheels fit. I'm just taking a chance and hoping that they will fit

I ran VTA with it for a couple of months. No problem with the HPI VTA wheels. They mount right up. My only real problem was the screws holding the bottom of the C cups to the A arms on the front kept coming out. Loosing those screws and bushing was a hassle. Other than that ran fine.

Novak Ballistic 25.5 and GTB2 for motor/esc. Spektrum DX3S TX/SR300 RX. Not sure if I was running one of the Spectrum servos or something out of an HPI or Traxxas car at that point. But it was pretty much your standard run of the mill, middle of the road servo.

It's a good starting car. VTA is a good starting class. Use them to learn with and then as you go up to faster classes invest in better chassis.

Hello,
Im trying to make a parts list for the JL10. I noticed I couldnt find any rear hub carriers. Where can I find them? I found the front steering blocks, caster blocks, lower front & rear arms so far. What else will I need to get?

The rear up-rights should be part# 37560
Try Nitrohouse they should have the parts.

+1 on Nitrohouse, they seem to be about the only place that keeps parts for the JL10e in stock.

Where can I find a 64 pitch spur gear for this car?

This http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Spur-Gear-78T is 64 pitch and 78 teeth (64p 78t). There are a couple of other brands at A Main as well if you don't like that brand. Just put "64p 78t spur" in the search box.

Thanks. FauxMako What would be a good combo for a FDR 5.0?
