I really like my jrxs R but not sure if they will every dive in the onroad pool again. Maybe for some bashing.

Sure its cheap. But if your gonna invest in a car now. Why not invest in something where the team is investing back into the racers?

Interesting post.... Most modern touring cars including what is considered the number one TC have moved towards shorter arms in recent times.

The huge diff is no problem as you still use NORMAL length uni's anyway. The diff has THE BEST belt tensioner of any TC period. And to top it off THE BEST BELTS.

Electronic balance? You must be joking right? Do you still use Nimh?

Support team? Lots of people still use the proven setups that the former team drivers use. In reality every track and driver is different and you will always need to tune the car for yourself. No team driver setup will be perfect for you unless you drive on the same track in the same manner. The JRX-S type R thread has plenty of advice for getting the most out of this chassis and I can tell you it is easily one of the best (if not the best) chassis I have ever owned in so many ways. Its only single weakpoint is the rear diff IF you drive mod. I am hardly my countries best driver but I can run with any of them these days and easily leave behind the midfield competition of my past and its in a large part due to my current chassis (JRX-S type-R)

Its a fantastic car and parts are cheap and readily available. What more could you want.

It would be neat to see Losi do a new TC, but from what I can see, Losi is slowly turning into what Traxxas is doing.

Another JRX-S would be really interesting. I'm very interested in chassis that have the batteries down the center, long-ways, and still have the 4wd characteristic (a la DF-03)...

If Horizon does come out with a new TC, , it will not have JR in the TC name.

I understand it is not going to happen but still I would love to see a JRXSR released with minor changes (higher top plate for bigger lipos maybe, easier flex adjustments, perhaps a side mounted lo-profile servo ?, centre point steering ?) and above all METRIC SCREWS + BEARINGS... I would sell my mom to buy it if that happenned. ;-)

I think it's by far the sexiest TC ATM. Shame it is still so 20th century sometimes...
