Just curious...where did you get Jet parts from? I wouldn't mind trying there parts. I think they make 2 different adapters of different tooth counts.

Ever seen the Trinity one.
Its nice, but difficult to get thuis day.
Thinking about using JRXS Pulley + aluminum pieces base for adapter
I'll model that on Pro-E and see how can it be used for this purpose,

E-mailed Jet Racing directly. Very quick reply. Part #s tx-05, tx-06, and tx-14 are still available for the xxxs. They're checking on both adapters though (tx-23 and tx-24). Let me know tomorrow.

Anybody else out there seem to have to bias all available weight to the rear of their car? As in my earlier post, I have the battery all the way to the rear with the esc (havok) wedged between the motor and rear tire. I recently added 3.5 oz to the right side of the car to balance side to side, but, had to place it as far back as possible! Additionally, I just installed a new set of tires and only goop up the rears before race time. Nothing on the front. If I do not do this, the car is way too loose and will spin out in the turns when off throttle.
The car currently weighs in at 1474 grams with body and is just as fast on the back strait (if not faster) than all other cars out there.
It just seems as though I'm compensating for a poor set-up by stacking weight in the rear instead of having a balanced car from front to back / side to side.
On a positive note, new tires and some simple shock tuning got me a 1 second improvement per lap over last week!

Mine weighs in at 1451 gtg and I have the battery placed as far forward as possible. I struggled at first with getting enough weight forward. This seems completely opposite as your problem. If anything, my car is too planted in the rear..too stable.

i have a few questions??? I have owned a rtr xxx-s for many years now but never raced it,just messed around on the street, plan on racing this summer in stock tour or rcgt. I need a new belt should I replace it with the stock belt or go the the heavy duty long drive belt kit? and what spare parts are recommended to keep in pit box? I enjoy reading all the tips and will be utilizing them.Keep them coming!!

Default My XXX-S Loaner

This car was loaned to me so I could participate in the stock rubber class that was getting a re-birth at our local track. We use 2 cell LiPo, 17.5 Brushless, and Jaco Blue tires. The guy that loaned this to me had just accumulated several of the cars and spares, but knew very little about setting them up. Since I was successful at racing some of the other classes, he thought I might be able to get the XXX-S running competitively. I just guessed at the set-up, but the car worked well first time on the track - hooked up and very competitive, even running the diff up front. I tried the one-way up front and was even faster, but it broke after only two battery packs (no crashes). I've been running it with the diff since then. I'm used to running a one-way in my other cars and it usually takes me a few laps to get the driving style adjusted to take advantage of the diff. Is the one-way for this car known to be fragile?

The car balanced without needing to add any additional weight with a 5300 LiPo pushed to the outside rail (gussets cut away). I run a very light receiver and the Tekin speed control is light and mounted as far to the right as possible.
